WSBK » Official: Max Biaggi to Aprilia.


I've been bitten by wildlife with more endearing personalities than Biaggi's. But to say he should be out of it I don't understand. Yes he's a prima donna. Yes he's erratic. But he's highly competent,often faster than a rat out of a drainpipe and makes for entertaining racing. This is good for Aprilia & good for WSB I'd like to see Hoffman as their second rider - He's pretty sound. Given a decent bike he's quick. And if anyone won't put up with bull**** ......

MotoGP » Official: Melandri to Kawasaki.


eh? How can he have lost the plot because Valle took the hump because he was too close to Valle for comfort? If he was too close to Valle for comfort he'd hardly lost the plot had he? The worrying thing for Marco is he was superb on the 990s. Since then, in 2007 he didn't have the success most folk would have predicted. This year's been a disaster for him and for Ducati because whilst both are top class they're clearly incompatible. The Kawasaki might or might not have potential. The riders seem to be taking the brunt of the flack for a bike which isn't doing what it should. Maybe Marco will do for Team Green what Casey did for Ducati last season. But I wouldn't hold your breath yet

MotoGP » Indianapolis - Warm-up times.


Dani the Dwarf & tires It creates a strange situation between Honda & Michelin. Michelin probably feel after close on 20 years of looking after Honda they've been stabbed in the back instead of supported whilst they work through a rough patch. HRC, pragmatists that they are, probably take the view if Michelin tires hadn't caused their riders grief no one would be talking about switching and M pulled the roof on their own head. As for DtD - any rider come to that - given the chance it *might* make sense to swap to Bridgestones. But if they do they're responsible for taking the gamble of going ahead with no settings etc.. If it comes apart its on their head. Or possibly Mr Puig's :-)

WSBK » Bayliss: I almost re-signed with Ducati.


Dollop Everybody spotted the 'so subtle' analogy with Doohan. The reality is Doohan's a pretty good rider who made up the difference by being as hard as nails and about as sensitive. Bayliss is a far more talented rider, much wiser and a thoroughly decent bloke who people don't just respect, they like him - a *lot*. Which is mostly why they think you're something that rhymes with grunt but won't get past the spell check :-)

BSB » Byrne: It was a big one!


It''ll be a bit of let-down all round if Shakey doesn''t get to ride. He''ll be digruntled if he reckon''s he''s fit It won''t help his chances of landing a top WSB slot if he doesn''t get close to nailing the title (even tho logically it''s pretty much a done deal whatever happens at Croft). And whoever wins will be told by some ****** ''You''d not have won if Shakey''d been allowed to compete''.

MotoGP » Elias heads to Indy 'second to Rossi'.


This season's stats are as you say Plaggie - but - My reasoning (and I hope its flawed 'cos I've reason to hope he does well beside the fact he's beginning to earn it)goes like this: Most of this year the Duke's been such a handful for him he's *had* to treat it with the utmost care or the sodding thing would bite him. But now he's got it sussed and going like a badger with a rocket up its orifice. And on his previous form, the temptation could easily be to go all balls-out and intemperate in his enthusiasm to nail a really good result. Against that he does seem to be maturing a lot as a rider, so you could be right. We'll find out on Sunday.
