WSBK » Team Hero EBR withdraws from WSBK


ianisme:
Greavesit: World superbikes is becoming a joke.
In what respect? An underfunded team had to pull out, but there are still plenty of well funded teams with very serious riders out there. The racing is still of the highest quality too, so I'm confused by your remark.
I have to agree, in what way is that a bad reflection on the series that a startup manufacturer went racing before their business was operating on a good basis? It's unfortunate for all those involved but it the series has lots of other strong manufacturers still racing.

MotoGP » Chassis upgrade for Scott Redding


I like Scott Redding and I really rate him as a rider but he is always going to be at a disadvantage to other, lighter riders like Marc Marquez. MM must be about 25kgs lighter than Scott and a good 6 inches shorter, meaning he can tuck in better and have less mass to decelerate and accelerate into and out of every corner. Let's hope this helps in some way to help him close the deficit a bit.

WSBK » EBR racing at Assen despite manufacturer bankruptcy


A sad state of affairs for Eric Buell indeed. Having owned a Buell road bike I can tell you they weren't the best of machines, a bit rough and ready. Mine started corroding after 50 dry miles! Anyway, regarding the race team. They use bespoke Buell engines, not Harley derived items. Even the previous watercooled bike used one designed by Rotax in Austria. I have often wondered why he stuck with the single front brake rotor when he tested a dual setup on the race bike it allowed it to cut 1.5 seconds off it's lap time! It seems sometimes he had to stick with something different because it was different and not because it was better. (The road bikes would have to have changed to suit homologation too).

F1 » Hamilton ‘never intended to disrespect’ in podium celebration


JD 002: Yeah look, I'm not the biggest Hamilton fan like many, but this isn't exactly a new issue and nor do I think he is at fault here. This sport has been objectifying women with the use of umbrella girls since its inception. If they really were concerned about the disrespect of women, they wouldn't have them up there in the first place. It doesn't send a great message to all the aspiring females out there. It's F1's version of 'sex sells'.
So, when the drivers spray champagne over their car designers after winning a race is that also a sign of disrespect, or are they merely happy and celebrating winning a race? Jeez, give the guy a break. He clearly was just celebrating a win. People are so quick to take offence for others these days when there was none there to begin with.

BSB » Tinmouth ‘nervous, but super keen’ for Honda bow


Oli: Why does every article about Jenny have to focus on the fact she's a woman? She's a racer, just report about her like you would any other factory rider.
I guess it's because at this moment in BSB history it is a first. The first woman to be a rider in a factory team. I am heartily encouraged at the response to her appointment, overwhelmingly positive from the fans! Great to see and I hope Jenny has a great season on the bike.

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.
