Marquez unique style

Marquez unique style is this.....You know the traditional European style where the rider tries to turn as little as possible using a long , wide arc Going in fast but slowing relying on side grip then accelerating when through the corner.= FAST IN SLOW OUT.


Then there is the dirt track style where the rider gets his turning and braking done early. Most of his braking is done at the end of the strait . Then he flicks it in squaring off the corner . This allows him to accelerate early and he can also achieve higher trap speeds.
This is IN SLOW OUT FAST


MARQUEZ UNIQUE STYLE IS THIS... HE GOES IN FAST FLICKS IT IN SQUARING OFF THE CORNER GETTING HIS TURNING DONE EARLY, HOLDS HIS SPEED THROUGHOUT THE CORNER NOT ACCELERATING OR DECELLERATING (WHICH TAKES EXTREMELY PERCISE THROTTLE CONTROL) THEN ACCELERATES EARLY AND AT A VERY HIGH SPEED BECAUSE HE HAD KEPT HIS SPEED HIGH THROUGHOUT THE CORNER .


Freddie Spencer and Kenny Roberts SR are the only riders in Gran Prix/MotoGP history that had this Unique style. back in the early 1980s and today all the other riders knew what Marquez/Spencer /Roberts where doing they just do not have the reflexes and precise throttle/Braking skill to do it .

People did not realize just how fast Roberts was until AFTER winning his 3 titles. The first year no one thought he had a chance of winning the title so Yamaha didn't give him upgrades. the second and 3rd year Roberts was a Phenom so Yamaha thought he was so good he didn't need upgrades. If that wasn't tough enough to deal with for these 3 years Roberts had an exclusive contract with Goodyear. Roberts was the only rider to use Goodyear tires for those 3 years and Barry Sheen the previous Champion who Rode for Suzuki publicly stated that the only reason Roberts won ANY race was because Goodyear tires where SO good they made a mediocre rider into a great rider. Well, after the 3 year contract was completed Barry Sheen was offered the Goodyear contract . Sheen tested the Goodyear tires. To Sheens credit, after the test Sheen proclaimed Roberts has to be the best rider to ever throw a leg over a motorbike because Goodyear tires are shit/ Unridable. I am 54 years old so I can personally testify that Sheen was correct. Goodyear tires where on par with Chinese Chin shie tires they where Bias ply hard as rock , dry rot set in after 2? years if they where not already worn out after 5000 miles and that was if they where on a touring bike. Young guys... this IS the golden age of motorcycling. Great bikes great tires, chains last 40K . Even a Harley will go over 100,000 miles

Buddy,
I used to watch Sheen, Roberts, Rainey, Grant ,Ditchburn, even Lance Capon @ Snetterton (Vincent Black Shadow) in the early 70's. Jap/Chink tyres had too much nylon in'em to be any good, and Dunlop TT100's were'nt much better, tyre profile was all wrong.
