I have to second this. Every time he does something credible like a podium, some of the shit that comes out of his mouth can be extremely cringe-worthy. I want to like the guy but he makes it so damn hard at times. Can you imagine what we would have to cop if he ever won 10 races back to back like Marquez in 2014?!?!?!

I've got more chance of getting a blow job off Emma Watson than Cuntslow has of winning 10 races back to back in moto gp..

There's a very odd promo vid of Jlo for this race on gp site. I'm sure Libby was impressed though.

If you live in a glass house don't throw rocks.

The thing with Michelin is that they are so willing to manipulate the tires that its bound to blow up in their faces from time to time. Maybe GP needs some more tire democracy, that will 'fix' it.
Couldn't have anything to do with track being newly resurfaced, could it? A record number of riders, broke the track record. A huge number of riders got overconfident and fell in Moto 2 as well.

Based on the article it was VR that said that Marquez is a traitor and that he was the reason for not letting JL into Honda. That dude just doesn't learn. How many times are you trying to get under MM skin to find out he will fuck with you so hard you will not be able to sit for weeks? Every time he does this MM has something up hi sleeves. With 50 pts advantage I would be tempted to play with Rossi again so that he can have his hissy fit and on top of that on his home grand prix. I hope he doesn't do it because I want him to win in Italy.

And "its all over the media’s in Spain" is also incorrect, but nice try.

That's why, you're right. Very high grip surfaces (and very low grip surfaces) let go more suddenly.

Yup, Rossi's playing the bitch again.

This is exactly a characteristic of 'Michelins' my friend! As has been describe by riders, ‘they have grip, until they don't’. To use your words they "let go more suddenly." That is, they have a narrow window of warning, contrasted to the previous control tires. The re-surfacing has its effect, but riders have been crashing out this way since Qatar, and all of last year as well, Le Mans wasn't some anomaly, rather more of the same; common denominator: Michelin tires. (Tire performance in lap records has zero to do with this 'crashing' issue by the way, i know it wasn't ' your point' buddy, but it's an ignorant statement, unsurprisingly.) Michelin's quality control is shitty, we are talking about crashing and what causes it outside of rider error.


"And then five laps to the end, when this problem with the front tyre was getting worse, when they overtook me, I could not fight because I was sliding too much." "But when the technician from Michelin in your team says something is wrong, then you can be happy about your race." Zarco

Zarco said of the Michelin tire it was a “technical problem”.

"And usually during the weekend I'm not the kind of rider to complain that we have, for the same tyre [compound], some wrong, some good.” Zarco.


Sound familiar? Other riders have repeated this sentiment, including Rossi BTW. The tires are shit, they were shit at Le Mans too.

Keep in mind RCV, there is a gag order on talking negatively about Michelin's shitty performance and quality control; so the little we get is likely the tip of the shitberg. You may recall Vinalez mentioned this at COTA after a crash, saying "he didn't want to receive an email" about his comments regarding his crash that he blamed on...guess what....Michelin tires.

I recall even Stoner saying that the Bridgestones at certain rounds were unpredictable and gave no warning. They were a better tire overall, but, that said, riders have had numerous seasons to acclimate to the Michelins, as evidenced by the number of riders, not just one or two, who broke the track record at Le Mans.

Michelin consistency needs to improve, sure. The Bridgestones were better.

My point was confined to considering why, relatively, there were more crashes here than at other rounds.
