MotoGP » Corsi MotoGP debut ‘incredible experience’


I really doubt Edwards is going to see the season out. He just doesn't seem to have his heart in it, despite him having the best bike he's had for some years now. It was really strange for Colin to announce his retirement in Austin. Yes I know it was the Texas round and he is Texan but announcing your retirement on the second race of the season is just plain weird. You do that about two thirds of the way through or perhaps at Indy. Whether this test ride is about putting pressure on Colin or preparing a fall back position if Colin walks is hard to say. For sure though that Forward Yamaha M1 is wasted on Colin considering the form he is in.

MotoGP » Dovi: Top four ride in a completely different way


What is this obsession with PR skills? These guys are motorcycle racers! Well no, they have to be much more than that. The whole reason a factory goes racing is for brand image. It is their main and most expensive form of advertising. The riders' job is to win races and get podiums to enhance the brand image but also not to bad mouth the bike and team when things go wrong. Nicky Haydon understood this. How often did you ever hear him vent his frustration at Ducati? If he didn't do well he took the responsibility and still thanked the team for their efforts even if the fault lay totally with the bike. That's how a professional should behave. Dovi is far more diplomatic than Cal and whilst he points out the deficiencies it is with a positive note in terms of where the development needs to go. Cal just beats the bike and vents his frustration. Yes he struggled through the pain barrier and the bike let him down but he wouldn't have been in pain if he hadn't binned the bike again and giv

MotoGP » Landmark race, disappointing result for Lorenzo


A couple of poorish results and everyone seems to be writing Jorge off. It's clear that he is suffering a lack of motivation at present but you can bet that will return. He is simply too competitive an animal for that to be the case for long. And for those Rossi fans who are gloating, just remember that was the first time in a VERY long time that Rossi finished ahead of Jorge.

MotoGP » Smith keen to continue ‘steady improvements’


Dovi wasn't forced out of Tech 3, he had signed for Ducati before Smith's deal was done. It was Cal that was forced out to make room for Pol. Dovi is an intelligent rider so I can't see him moving to Suzuki. I think he will likely end up at Yamaha if Lorenzo jumps ship. Here's my prediction for 2015. Remember, you read it here first! REPSOL HONDA Marc Marquez Jorge Lorenzo FACTORY YAMAHA Valentino Rossi Andrea Dovisioso FACTORY DUCATI Cal Crutchlow Andrea Iannone TECH3 YAMAHA Bradley Smith Pol Espergaro FACTORY SUZUKI Danni Pedrosa Alvaro Bautista GRESINI Scott Redding + some Italian. LCR Who knows / cares?

WSBK » Ducati celebrates return to WSBK podium


The Panigale hasn't been a success and still doesn't really look like it can get to grips with the Kawasaki or Aprilia. If Ducati follows their usual trend of 4 years / model, a new superbike will be out in 2015. Hopefully that will be rather more competitive than the Panigale. Perhaps a trellis frame that handles and a motor that generates some power and torque below 6000rpm might be recommended?
