MotoGP » 'Emotional' Hayden bids farewell to Ducati


Actually Hayden WILL be sorry to leave Ducati. That's because he is more interested in being part of the show, the glamour & attention of being part of a works team than actually winning. He said it himself - he wanted to stay in the MotoGP paddock with some team, any team, rather than have a crack at WSB. Hopefully the bike would be competitive but at the end of the day he just wanted to stay part of the circus.

MotoGP » Valencia marks end of MotoGP on British Eurosport


To those who say that fans would pay to watch, they are missing the point. The coverage was free and pretty good (Cox aside) on the BBC. Then BT charges in, offers Dorna more and before you know it something that used to be free now costs £12 / month. I know some will say you pay anyway via the licence fee but that won't go down now that the BBC are not showing MotoGP will it? IMHO, people like BT Sport are middle-men parasites. They offer more money to get the rights then expect you the viewer to pay more to generate their profits, whilst they add no value whatsoever. I sincerely hope they go the way of ESPN, Satanta etc and FAIL. And the only way that will happen is for as few people as possible to subscribe. When BT sees they are losing money and Dorna sees the viewing figures have crashed then coverage will come back to terrestrial TV.

BSB » Tommy Hill scraps BSB team plans


Tommy Hill is not stupid. Unlike most of the other riders he has options - he runs a successful graphics business and probably makes far more doing that than he ever did racing. He's got nothing to prove ... won BSB and had a crack at the world level. What is more foolish - to come back to racing for virtually nothing risking life and limb or focus on his growing business?
