2017 Racing Primer

Off season sucks!

WSBK doesn't start till late Feb. MotoGP doesn't start till late March. Grumble. Grumble. There is still stuff to talk about.

All Time Winning MotoGP/500 Percentage
MotoGP Winning Percentage (Riders with at least 10 wins thru 2016)
First Last Wins Races Win Pct.
1 John Surtees 22 26 84.6%
2 Mike Hailwood 37 59 62.7%
3 Geoff Duke 22 37 59.5%
4 Giacomo Agostini 68 117 58.1%
5 Marc Marquez 29 72 40.3%
6 Kenny Roberts 22 55 40.0%
7 Mick Doohan 54 137 39.4%
8 Casey Stoner 38 115 33.0%
9 Freddie Spencer 20 62 32.3%
10 Valentino Rossi 88 288 30.6%
11 Phil Read 11 38 28.9%
12 Wayne Rainey 24 83 28.9%
13 Jorge Lorenzo 44 156 28.2%
14 Eddie Lawson 31 127 24.4%
15 Kevin Schwantz 25 105 23.8%
16 Barry Sheene 19 87 21.8%
17 Wayne Gardner 18 102 17.6%
18 Dani Pedrosa 29 181 16.0%
19 Alex Criville 15 139 10.8%
20 Max Biaggi 13 127 10.2%
21 Randy Mamola 13 142 9.2%

Rossi should have 2 seasons deducted for that POS Ducati. MHO

Analysis here:

Soup :: All-Time MotoGP/500cc Winning Percentage :: 01-09-2017

Courage Squared or riding a 500 2 stroke in the rain. Note the radical 20 degree lean angles.

Vale and Vinales Meet...


Marquez isn't the only one that can make epic saves. Check out Rossi here:


If the video is disabled on the forum. Just click the watch on you tube link.

Can't wait for the racing to start. Hope Honda builds Nicky a great bike. And Yoshimura can work wonders with the new Suzuki. So glad they resigned Elias for Moto America!

Wsbk just wrapped up a test...
Soup :: Jerez WSBK Test: Rea Fast, Savadori Close & Hayden Faster Than Lowes :: 01-25-2017

Soup :: Kawasaki's Rea On Top After Day One At Jerez WSBK Test :: 01-24-2017

Nicky still recovering, but from what was said, they still have a lot of work to do, to close the gap. Not too surprising, as the bike isn't really a leap (giant or otherwise) from last year's model.

At first blush, seems like S.O.S. except with inclusion of Melandri and possibly Sal on the RSV4, so 5 riders going for wins and the championship as opposed to 3.

Thanks for the links 5150! 6th for a recovering Nicky isn't too bad. Only .7 off the pace. Hopefully things will get better. Not worth the trip to Laguna if it is the S.O.S.

Come on guys. Share your favorite moments from last season or your hopes for this one. It beats the hell out of talking politics or exhausts and FEs.

Oh man, I so agree with you, off season sucks royally! And since I don't like sports where guys are playing with their balls, I'm so bored. I even started reading.
