Tyred of all the choice

Motorcycle News (UK) - - Comment -

Firstly may I con­grat­u­late Cal Crutchlow on a well-de­served Moto GP win. For him to beat Rossi on the same tyres shows just how well he was rid­ing. How­ever, first and sec­ond in the race came down to the cor­rect tyre choice. I thought that when they fetched in one make of tyre for ev­ery­one, it was go­ing to pro­mote closer rac­ing. Once again the rid­ers have too many op­tions, and mak­ing the wrong choice can lead to a dis­as­trous race – eg Dovi, Red­ding and oth­ers. Why can’t Dorna in­tro­duce a new rule that there will be no in­ter­me­di­ates, and only one type of wet front and rear? This would make for a more level play­ing field. Ray Marsh, email
