Moto GP 2015 Round 2 COTA ***SPOILER***

Well round 1 was awesome!!! what a battle between Vale and Dovi, we all knew the Ducs were going to mix is up but wow!!, now let's hope to see another great fight this time with MM93 in the mix and JL99 without any helmet issues?? We also heard about Dani having successful surgery, but time will how things progress from here. Wishing him a speedy recovery. In the mean time we welcome Hiroshi Aoyama to ride his bike. Vale is full of confidence and will be looking to repeat, Marc will be pushing for the win big time, Jorge same, can the Ducs spoil there fun?? ;)

About the circuit
The Circuit Of The Americas is the first purpose-built Grand Prix facility in the U.S. near Austin, Texas, with a 5.513km track and a capacity for 120,000 fans. Construction of the impressive 1000-acre facility was completed late in 2012, with MotoGP lining up at the track for the first time in 2013. One of its more distinctive features is near 41m-elevation change with an impressive incline at the end of the home-straight followed by a sharp left. The circuit is one of the most varied on the GP circuit, with a mix of fast straights and tight hairpins, with most sections mirroring at least some part of a famous track around the world. It was designed by well-known German architect and circuit designer Hermann Tilke. The driving direction is counter clockwise and has a total of 20 corners with 9 right turns and 11 left turns.

Seems that CS27 wanted to run at CotA, but he was told no because he hasn't raced there.

Good read. If Casey were to come back they'd want to "do it right." Especially since Casey was top tier.

Woulda been cool to see a rusty, out of shape Stoner over Aoyama though.

I don't know how much I buy that rusty out of shape stoner story.

He has some experience on the new bike, he's been testing it for them after all... he's already proven he can learn a track no worries.

He'd have to be reasonably fit to be test riding, he's still putting himself and the bike under an immense amount of stress taking it to a point where the testing is useful. After all, he's not going to be riding around at 75% and trying to tell them where to get that extra 0.5%. He's gonna be at 99.5% and trying to go from there.

Fair enough that a day of testing isn't 45 mins or an hour of lapping at full race pace non stop, but it's still gonna be hard... What's more, Aoyama is going to be in exactly the same position as Casey so it's not a point you can use to pick between them.

So no, not rusty and not really out of shape.

Chances are they just didn't want him racing against MM. Stoner is one of the best riders to go around the track, what he did on the duc is testament enough to that. No need to upset the new kid with the unbelievable talent by pitting him against the only bloke out there that could match him. It either upsets Casey, driving him away from it for good or it rattles MM's cage and makes him easier pickings throughout the year. Nothing to gain.

well it would of have been interesting to say the least to see Casey though. Vale winning back to backs would be amazing, but a certain #93 might have something to say, then there's JL99 and the mighty Ducs haha should be good!!

There is one thing, Aoyama has previous track experience over Stoner at Texas and Argentina.

Either way, I think you're right that they don't want Marquez to have another distraction after the poor start to this year. Personally, I miss Stoner and his riding style. Not a lot of people can do what he did with a GP bike.


Last thing, I know Rossi just won Qatar but do you guys know who won all of the COTA races thus far? I wonder if that is going to continue like Stoner at Phillip Island.

MotoGP Austin: Marquez: I want to put Qatar behind us 7 April 2015
Repsol Honda's Marc Marquez is aiming to make up for the disappointment of his fifth place finish in Qatar as he bids for a third straight MotoGP victory in Austin this weekend

Marc Marquez will be aiming to maintain his perfect record at the Circuit of the Americas in Austin, Texas, at round two of the MotoGP World Championship this weekend.

The Repsol Honda rider clinched his maiden premier class triumph at the track in 2013 and last year underscored his dominance at the circuit, topping each practice session, qualifying on pole and leading from start to finish.

Marquez will be aiming to make amends on Sunday after he finished off the rostrum in the Qatar night race at the Losail International Circuit in the season opener after a mistake on lap one at the first corner dropped him back to last place, although the two-time MotoGP champion regrouped to fight his way through the pack, eventually finishing fifth.

“I'm really looking forward to getting to Austin and putting Qatar behind us. The Circuit of The Americas is one of my favourite circuits and I have good memories of taking my first win in the MotoGP class, back in 2013, and also winning there last year,” said Marquez, who is joined in American by test rider Hiroshi Aoyama after Dani Pedrosa was ruled out as he recovers from further surgery to address the issues he is experiencing with arm pump.

“We need to work hard from FP1 and then keep this momentum for the whole weekend and have a 'normal' race. I'm really sorry for Dani, myself and the whole team wish him a speedy recovery. We welcome Hiroshi to the team and will help him how we can.”

MotoGP Austin: Rossi sets rostrum target in Texas 7 April 2015
MotoGP World Championship leader Valentino Rossi hopes to carry his race-winning momentum from Qatar into round two of the series in Austin, Texas, this weekend

Movistar Yamaha's Valentino Rossi has quickly put his stunning victory in the MotoGP season opener in Qatar behind him as the championship leader switches his focus to this weekend's second round in Austin, Texas.

Rossi has finished sixth and eighth at the Circuit of the Americas in the past two seasons and admits the American circuit hasn't been kind to him or Yamaha, but the nine-time world champion hopes a rostrum finish is within his reach on Sunday.

“Beginning the championship with a victory is really nice, but now we must try to be just as competitive as we were in Qatar everywhere else. Austin is not our favourite track,” Rossi said.

“Although the track is very modern and I really like some corners, the two long straights are weak points for us. Our opponents are strong, but it's also true that our bike has made major improvements.

“I'm happy with my feelings on the YZR-M1. We will work hard to find the best possible solution, as we did at Losail,” he added.

“After the victory in Qatar we are all very motivated and we are ready for another weekend. I would like to get on the podium. It won't be easy, but we will try.”


MotoGP Austin: Lorenzo: Maybe we have a chance to fight 7 April 2015
'Both me and the bike have improved and maybe also the new tyres give us a chance to fight for the race' - Jorge Lorenzo

Jorge Lorenzo hopes the combination of an improved Yamaha M1 and better tyres will allow him to challenge for victory this weekend in the Austin MotoGP.

Lorenzo had been in contention for a win at Losail in Qatar with Andrea Dovizioso and his Movistar Yamaha team-mate Valentino Rossi until an issue with his helmet hampered his vision, causing him to drop off the pace of the leaders as he eventually crossed the line in fourth place.

The two-time premier class champion concedes that the Circuit of the Americas in Texas does not favour the Yamaha, but Lorenzo is confident that he has a chance of repeating his rostrum feat at the track from 2013, when he finished third behind Repsol Honda pair Marc Marquez and Dani Pedrosa.

“Qatar is in the past and we thought our result would be better, but now I'm just focusing on next race in Austin. I look forward to racing there once again, even if usually it's not a track that suits our bike,” said Lorenzo.

“In the past I was able to get on the podium so I want to do my best in Texas and try to keep as focused as I was in Qatar.

“I'm eager to race as soon as possible because I feel very fit and mentally strong. Hopefully we can do a better job than last year because both me and the bike have improved and maybe also the new tyres give us a chance to fight for the race.

“From my side, I'm going to push at the maximum.”

Lorenzo endured a difficult race in Texas last year, finishing in 10th position on the Yamaha after a jump-start as he lost further ground in the championship on the back of his first-lap spill in the Qatar night race.

MotoGP Austin: Dovizioso 'can't wait' to put GP15 to test again 8 April 2015
Ducati's Andrea Dovizioso is itching to unleash the GP15 on the Circuit of the Americas in Austin after sealing a magnificent runner-up finish in the MotoGP season opener in Qatar

This weekend's second round of the MotoGP World Champion in Texas can't come soon enough for Andrea Dovizioso after the Italian rider's sensational performance in Qatar.

Dovizioso pushed eventual winner Valentino Rossi all the way on the new Ducati GP15, narrowly missing out on a dream victory at Losail, with team-mate Andrea Iannone underlining the Ducati's competitiveness by clinching the final position on the podium.

It was a hugely encouraging weekend for the Ducati riders, but Dovizioso is now eager to see how the GP15 will perform at the Circuit of the Americas in Austin and again in Argentina the following weekend at the Termas de Rio Hondo track.

“I am very satisfied with my result in Qatar, because I was able to fight for the win right down to the chequered flag with a totally new bike,” said Dovizioso, who finished third in Texas in 2014 behind the Repsol Honda pair of Marc Marquez and Dani Pedrosa.

“In 2014 I succeeded in obtaining my first podium with Ducati at Austin, in what was a bit of a strange race, but I really like the Texan track because of its characteristics and I can't wait to start racing this weekend.

“I'm very excited and very curious to see how the GP15 will go in the next few circuits.”

200th MotoGP for ‘lone star’ Hayden 7 April 2015
“I doubt there are two younger riders out there who love motorcycles as much as Valentino and me” – Nicky Hayden

MotoGP » 200th MotoGP for ‘lone star’ Hayden 7 April 2015
“I doubt there are two younger riders out there who love motorcycles as much as Valentino and me” – Nicky Hayden.
Follow @crash_motogp
StumbleUpon
200th MotoGP for ‘lone star’ Hayden Nicky Hayden will start his 200th MotoGP as the only American rider on the grid at this weekend's event in Austin, Texas.

Hayden, 33, made his MotoGP debut with Repsol Honda in 2003, won his first race in 2005 and went on to beat Valentino Rossi to the title in 2006.

The switch to smaller 800cc engines hurt Hayden's form and he moved to Ducati to start a five-year association in 2009. Hayden claimed just three podiums on the troublesome Desmosedici, but performed credibly against strong team-mates Casey Stoner, Rossi and Andrea Dovizioso.

The Kentuckian returned to Honda by signing for the Aspar team in the new Open class last season. Held back by both the uncompetitive RCV1000R and a serious wrist injury, Hayden is physical fitter and riding the improved RC213V-RS in 2015.

“The truth is that I don't feel like I'm about to make it 200 Grands Prix. It is not the thing I am most proud of and it is not like winning something special, it's just a number,” Hayden said. “But what I am proud of is that I am still motivated, still hungry, and I still want to fight and to be fast. Some of those 200 races bring back better memories than others, but I guess that is normal.”

Picking out the biggest changes in MotoGP since 2003, Hayden explained: “Lots of things have changed - the tyres, the switch to 800cc was one of the biggest changes but perhaps not the best… I think the biggest change overall has been in the electronics. But no matter how much things change, at the end of the day it is still about riders taking machines to the limit.”

Hayden describes his shock 2006 title victory, which ended Rossi's run of five consecutive championships, as a “dream come true”. Fast forward nine years and the pair are now the oldest riders on the grid.

“We are both riders with long careers behind us. It is true that we are the oldest on the grid now but I doubt there are two younger riders out there who love motorcycles as much as Valentino and me. If there is one thing we have in common it is our passion for bikes.”

Hayden, who finished 17th in the opening round in Qatar, cites electronic work as the main priority for his new Open Honda heading into round two at COTA.

“We know where we're at right now, where we need to improve, which is mainly in the electronics. I am looking forward to getting there and competing in my home race, in front of my fans. We understood more about the chassis in Qatar so hopefully this weekend we can use that knowledge to fight for a better result.

“It is early to set any clear objectives but obviously the initial idea is to be the best of the Open category and to get back to our best form. I struggled a lot last season with the wrist injury and I wasn't happy with my performance, but I expect to do much better this time around.”
