WSBK » Magny-Cours will suit Ducati, says Davies


salieri: panigale has given a good showing when things have worked out for it - I feel that the effort Ducati have put into GPs may well have been at the expense of developing the Panigale? just a thought but I think there's a better bike hidden in there if someone took the time and money to develop it properly.........
Yep there is a better bike in there - it's called the Superleggera and it's all yours for £54,000! However Ducati do have a habit of trickling down parts from the top end models to the S and base models so expect (perhaps next year) to see some improvements to the Panigale. But I have to agree with the other posters - at present it isn't a good bike - scaffold pole handling, two stroke-like powerband, and noisy as heck with the exhausts where they are.

MotoGP » Loris Baz lands Forward Yamaha ride


NineTimes: IMHO, There should be a rule restricting passport riders (i.e Crutchlow, Smith, Miller, Baz...etc) from being promoted to premier series without having completed at least one season in lower categories. With a section to it saying, "they must have also done something of significance".
In the case of Crutchlow, does being World Supersport Champion qualify in your estimation as having done 'something of significance'?

WSBK » Melandri beats Guintoli to controversial win


I have to disagree with a number of posters & offer the view that in such circumstances, team orders are both legitimate & sensible. Whilst riders are interested in their own results, it is after all a team sport. Without the backing of the factory, engineers & mechanics, they would never get to the grid in the first place. Once a situation is reached where one team member is in the running for the championship and the other mathematically isn't, then the second rider should be prepared to support the other, for the benefit of the team as a whole. First & foremost Aprilia want to win the rider's title. So do Kawasaki - Baz was instructed to let Sykes through in race 1 (& did). So Melandri should ride shotgun for Guintoli. Baz should ride shotgun for Sykes. In fact I would suggest that 'team orders' shouldn't actually need to be given. A professional rider with the best interests of the team at heart shouldn't actually need to be told, they should behave in this way automatically.

WSBK » Troy Corser managed BMW entry set to be revealed


sethgator:
Didn't you get the point of this? It is an Aussie team, so they want at least one Aussie Rider. Josh Brooks. Corser isn't going to run with an American & a Brit.
yeah I did, didn't you get the point of "personally" reading comprehension...find it.
I'm sure my reading comprehension is far in excess of yours, Sonny Jim. By the way, when you start a sentence (hmm, with yeah) you generally use a capital letter.
