WSBK » Giugliano confirmed to miss WSBK opener with injury


kiwiinoz:
shamarone: re: "Well thats 2 riders out, smart move, testing right before first race, dorks" gotta test sumptin'.
yes but 3 weeks before the first race would allow these injuries to heal and we would have a full grid to start the season. This happened last year as well, remember
To have testing at the same track 3 weeks beforehand would increase the costs for the teams dramatically. Now you would have Storage costs for the bike and equipment, accommodation costs for 3 weeks for the team (or twice the cost in air travel, not to mention the inconvenience) AND the track conditions could be completely different 3 weeks apart rather than a few days where the teams an actually see some benefit from the testing. It's very unfortunate that these injuries have occurred but this is what happens sometimes when people test equipment.

WSBK » Parrish, Gaymor join Eurosport line-up


Wow. If you honestly think that the commentary teams in the UK are bad you REALLY don't want to listen to the dry drivel that gets served up on the US commentary on TV! Jack and James are fantastic together and Julian Ryder and Nick Harris know more about bike racing than 99% of people watching on TV. Thank God I don't have to listen to Jonathan (If I shout all the time it will be exciting) Green!

WSBK » Jerez - Unofficial testing results [Monday]


@

Abefan: The EBRs are already closer than at most points last year,(rarely dipped under 3 seconds off the pace last year) and you would hope a bit of familiarity might gain them another bit.. I don't think they will suffer as much this year as last, or at least I hope not cos they're a brave concern taking on what they have. People here are very quick to dismiss as "useless" and "technically flawed" a new bike. How many other SMALL SCALE manufacturers using their own engine have arrived and challenged within two years? Fair play to them! - I'd like to see EBR racing with a double front disc brake setup. I know WHY they race with the single but it's been proven in their own tests that the bike ran 1.5-2 secs a lap faster.

MotoGP » MotoGP pay TV 'something we must face'


shamarone: re: "MotoGP on Speed channel or wherever it now airs is unwatchable." FoxSports-1 and its fine. don't exaggerate.
Fox Sports 1 is NOT fine. Not if you have ever watched coverage from a decent source! The advert breaks are annoying (Like 3 ad breaks BETWEEN the end of the race and them getting to the podium which you hardly ever see!) and long and there is seldom coverage of all three classes. During their time Sky, Eurosport and BT Sport in the UK have been FAR better (like NO adverts during a race) full coverage of all classes and practice/qualifying sessions, behind the scenes access and post race interviews. I live in America now and try everything I can to watch races online rather than FS1.

MotoGP » Factory engine for 2015 Open Honda


mrfill So they don't buy the seamless box. This is an engine 'upgrade'. It does state "It is assumed that the Open machine will not have the cutting edge seamless shift gearbox of the Factory bikes" And I think you mean open class bike rather than satellite. The much quoted 0.3s was between the rcv213 and the rcv1000 Agreed. I must have missed the quote about no new gearbox. But, the pneumatic valved engine will still be somewhere around 700K more expensive which means a possible extra 2.8m Euros to find for next year. Better start checking down the back of the couch!
