It's happening Great Read

Finally some real talk about racing. 2010 through 2017 6 titles 8 years.

now i personally dont like the goat discussion as you cant compare eras however the valeban with all their nonsense year in and year out and finishing with 0 championships during that time and now will be lucky if you get 1 win a year i had to post this.

MotoGP Opinion: ?Making The Case For Marc Marquez Being The GOAT (Greatest Of All Time)

i really liked this line in case you miss it or ignore it

During certain periods, some riders are given such immense advantages that, win records aside, it's hard to argue that it is only their skill that earned them their domination.
Thanks from xpercad

ps who has been saying for years about rossi and tyres. finally an article that says it. and then to close the article

I'll wrap this up with a hypothetical question: If the rules were the same as they were in 2014 for the machine (no spec electronics), Marquez had a legendary crew chief in his garage, and Michelin would cook special tires for him for specific tracks for specific race weekends ... would he ever lose a race again?

the author is brilliant

By the numbers it's still Ago, my personal GOAT list is Ago, modern day Rossi, Lawson, Dohan gets a mention for 5 in a row, but that was with one manufacturer HONDA.
No one will ever do what Rossi has done 5 in a row starting on a 500 2 stroke, then 4 stroke Honda then on to Yamaha, and still going strong. You can't be a GOAT until you've won championships on different makes. Stoner could have been a GOAT to end all goats, but he bowed out early, so we'll never know

Rossi won MANY of his races, which lead to titles based purely on his preferential treatment.
But if you think otherwise, keep drinking the Kool Aid that he is actually the GOAT or in the running, couldn't win on Ducati, and has won how many times since back on a Yamaha in the last 2 years?
