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.

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.
