Please let him stay up this time.... Favorite (from memory) line from Faster - "I had to cut a hole in my boot to make room for the bolt".



And First.....

Glad to see McCoy's coming back (to MotoGP) and even better to see Max returning (to anything). These guys are way too good not to be competing with a good team. Glad I'm not Corser though.

It'll be good to see that nutball back in MotoGP.



Good find, KP.

Default David vs. Goliath

It looks like a David vs. Goliath matchup. Let's hope David can match the might of the major bike manufacturers. Time will tell.

This is great news, whether he is winning or not, he is allways a blast to watch and a great plus for the racing community, as for Max, what can you say, let the Roman rip!

Good post KP.

The King of Slide returns!



I wonder if the 800cc bikes will see something of a return to the wicked narrow powerbands of the 500cc two strokes? I would expect that traction control will probably continue to greatly limit the number of highsides though... a part of racing that has *almost* disappeared from MotoGP

Far and away the best part of Faster was the Garry McCoy chapter. Holy Smokes, that dude can ride!!!!

He just became my new favorite GP rider to cheer for. (No offense, Nicky.)

watch him podium because the bike turns faster than the 990 machines.

shades of Britten. i am very, very curious about the engineering behind that bike.



i am convinced that small team of highly motivated and creative engineers, free of "conventional wisdom," can outdo the factory drones.



go, garry!
