Good find, that is a great article. It really sheds light on just where Nicky stands with HRC. Pedrosa is starting to remind me a lot of Biaggi; he rides with a lot of emotion, and often lets his frustration and anger get the best of him. He is a pampered little baby, and is only driven by selfishness.

Rossi rides with unbreakable determination, but keeps a cool head and truly enjoys dicing it up with other riders. This is the character of a true sportsman, and a champion. I beleive Hayden shares some of these same qualities.

I really wonder if Hayden would have resigned with Honda after last weekend. That was a real slap in the face for him, and it must also be a blow to his pride knowing that Honda believes that only Pedrosa can beat Rossi.

Just to make it clear, HRC's big boss, as quoted in the article, said that during the reign of Biaggi/Hayden, as they were looking to sign on Pedrosa. I don't think they knew what Hayden was about to do in 2006. I think in response to that, Hayden pulled out an astonishing 2006 season. It's not over yet, but yes, it was a great article. Dani, from what I've read about him, is sort of pampered. You would think so since he's so small. Short people tend to overcompensate for their deficiencies particularly when they get out-done by taller people; in this case, Hayden made a wicked pass on him on lap 4, so Pedrosa stalked him to the same corner to repeat the move on Hayden. Mis-calculated and slammed into his teammate. Utter bonehead move.

From reading that, I doubt he will help Hayden at all. I really think that given the chance he would rather win the race then help.

I guess we'll see

And Just like I said Before,DAni DID NOT like the hard pass put on him by Nicky.

Seems almost all the moto journalist are bringing up Nickys pass also.

Noyes is always spot on in his reports.

I think if Dani can win the race he will.

And we already knew that Repsol could care lessabout what Nicky Hayden does.

What Alberto Puig had to say..

Hayden in the pre- race interviews said (regarding Edwards saying he will help Rossi) :

"The situation with Colin is different, because he does not have options to the title, but Dani is not mathematically out. In Honda, every man is to himself"

Alberto Puig said the following:

A racer always wants to win and you dont understand it unless you are racer. What happened today is what happens in racing, and while one has the mathematically posibility nobody can make you do anything. Also [pedrosa] fell because [Hayden] broke too early, if not, [pedrosa] would not have fallen. Nobody that rides like to fall and Dani had it good to win this GP. En the previous lap Hayden was very agressive and if had knocked off Dani, what would have happened? First thing Hayden has to do is be up front, which he has not done all year, that would be the first thing. Races go as the go, but of course, i feel bad for Honda and for Nicky"

Like I said...look for Dani to be out front trying to win.

I am with blip on this 100%. I am not a very big fan of Dani anymore. It goes to show how different Americans are from Europeans. We are about TEAMWORK. Thats why we kick a$$ so much. If Hopkins, Edwards, Roberts, or hell even Stoner for that matter was on Hayden's team, this would not have happened.

That is such utter crap. Hayden had the line and Dani tried to stuff if where there was no track.

Puig is looking out for Dani with blinders on. He can't see the facts for what they are. Hayden had the lead for the championship. What Dani was trying to do is all about pride, not about teamwork or riding with a level head.

Pedrosa is a dangerous rider and IMHO should have been fined for his actions. If Stoner can be fined for holding up a rider during qualifying why aren't riders fined for making dangerous passes that knock out other riders?

I agree and I dont about getting fined. Dani did try to not run into Hayden but should every Time a rider Crash's and takes out another by accident get fined??

Not arguing this one,Dani screwed the pooch BADLY and realy wont do anything to help Nicky (im almost certain of this) just wanting to know how it can be policed??

Rossi is a masterful rider,yet smacked Marco like a stray fly last year. We all know his talent and it wasnt meant to be. DOes the FIM jus look out for repeat offenders???

I agree that Honda doesnt really care about Hayden, he should have taken the big $$$ that Ducati/Marlboro were offering him and been the future of Ducati. Though lets be honest Hayden wouldnt be a title contender if he wasnt on the #1 bike in Moto GP.
As far as Dani, well he is just a self centered turd that hasnt realized this isnt just about him.

I would be interested to see what your reaction would be if Pedrosa took out Rossi. Not to mention, the crying and whining from the Rossi contingent. Would you rag on the Rossi fans if the situation were reversed?

Personally, I'd rather not see anyone crashed out. The show is much better with all of the players involved.

I would say the same thing I'm saying right now, "That's racing."

I didn't like it when Rossi rammed into Sete back in 2004 in the last corner of the first race to win the race. I thought that was cheap but that's racing.

Kenny Roberts, Collin Edwards, etc. are all saying that's part of racing. I know it hard to accept it but what do you want? An apology? You got but that wasn't good enough for you. Always thinking there's a conspiracy of some sort, or lack of support. Whatever.

I just see it this way, Nicky wouldn't be in this situation or fighting this hard if he more WON RACES! Oh wait, that's right he had clutch problems and oh yeah, he never chose to ride a development bike, and oh yeah, there was something wrong with his tires and nevermind all the other riders experiencing the same problems.

Taking out your teammate is all a part of racing? C'MON! Trying a risky passing manuever on the lap 4? Are you friggin' serious?! That's not a part of racing, that's a part of idiocy. That's a part of stupidity. If you tried that crap on the track, that ain't racing. That's grounds for you head to be taken off. Hayden had more than half a bike length on Dani before the entry of that turn. If Dani can't slow the bike down enough to avoid a crash, he shouldn't be on a 990.

Let's not be stupid here. Highly doubt Dani went in thinking, "I'm going to take him out."

Nicky? Who is he but another competitor--even to his teammate. Team order? Maybe, but was this communicated from Nicky's crew to Dani's?

I know Jorge Lorenzo's team communicated this their teammate's crew so Lorenzo can have the win.

Clutch problems, tires, mechanical failures and people crashing out racing for the finish line... That's all a part of racing. But making an uneducated move on the inside of your teammate on the same turn he made you look silly a lap ago, is not a part of racing. That's letting your pride take control of you and making a dangerous move to get back at someone. No conspiracy. Just foolish pride and ego. Pedrosa had just gotten passed TWICE by riders he probably think (or brainwashed to think) are inferior to him. That move was not racing, that was revenge. And there is absolutely NO place for that crap on the track. Otherwise, what happened happens. Crashes. Innocent bystanding riders are affected. People get hurt. You pull that crap on the track and you get a control rider pulling you in for a "talk".

I don't think Dani went in there thinking "I'm going to take out Hayden," because that would be even worse! But I do think that Dani went in there thinking that he could complete the pass and GET BACK at Hayden in the same corner he schooled him in one lap before. Unfortunately, Robotface had it pre-programmed in his CPU and committed to the pass and saw that the gap wasn't there. Tucked the front. Crash the bike.

Rossi was right. Dani needs to learn how to overtake.
