MotoGP » Missed opportunity for 'fastest Yamaha' Edwards.


Seriously guys, if any of you actually think that the '05 Camel Honda that Bayliss rode was close to the factory spec Honda that year... :? He had zero support whatsoever that year. Yeah, Biaggi won on a similar looking bike in previous seasons. That's about the only thing that was similar. The looks. Daft thing to judge a bike's capabilities on how it looks! That's like a girl saying that red bikes are faster than blue ones. (Which, fyi, is not the case).

MotoGP » Bayliss sets 'respectable' pace at Mugello test.


Indeed, there is a whole lot of difference in being a second of the pace after pre season testing and numerous race weekends vs a three day test while not being on a bike for half a year. If you can be a second of the pace in a 3 day test after not ridden a bike for 6 months you're doing fine. Imagine what he could do after a whole pre season of testing. Not saying he would be as quick as Stoner, but he'd be closer than any other Ducati rider for sure.

WSBK » Kiyonari philosophical after Assen flop


Ten Kate switched from WP suspensions to Kayaba suspension. I think they know very well how to set up a bike, but this was a move I did not fully understand. They could have had Showa as they are the main Honda team, or just switch to stuff that clearly works for other teams (Ohlins). WP worked incredibly well for them, but that went downhill after WP moved from Holland to Austria, as it's a KTM owned company.

WSBK » Ducati: Rossi, Bayliss duel unlikely.


@Patrice, my bad. I had no idea. This does say something, nonetheless :) @Twoddle, what does it mean when Bayliss rode the last 990 race in Valencia on Bridgestones, taking such a dominant victory? It is a not well kept secret that Bayliss complained he was not allowed to take part of his own technical crew along with him when he moved to GPs in 2003. He raced the last 990cc race on his terms and look what happened. Colin has raced the exact same M1 as Rossi for years without taking victory, the closest he got was Assen in '06. I believe some riders get more skillful, even if they are getting older. Rossi is a perfect example of how his riding evolved together with the development of bikes.
