WSBK » Rea: More damage than expected in wrist

1. An isle of man superbike, bsb-spec bike, or any other domestic superbike is not the same as a WSBK spec bike, regardless of what is being said. Let's make that clear. Even though the blade may perform well in other championships, it is a comparison that can not be made. 2. Ten Kate might be a little dealership, but their honda dealership activity has little to do with their racing activity. They are very competent in what they do. 3. Although Ten Kate is striclty seen not a full factory effort, they do receive a whole bunch of factory support, even though they might not always willingly admit. Nevertheless, I do not think it is because of the riders that the blade is performing poorly. Considering the age of the blade, I think development is reaching the limit.

WSBK » Checa, Ducati pull clear with ‘double double’

@SP3: It doesn't matter, that's why I said "not to take anything away from Carlos". The guy is riding hard, good, and fair. However, we have to put this in the right context and nuance things right. People mention him being on a private team with a private bike, while the other top riders such as the aprilia are factory efforts, suggesting that Carlos has inferior equipment. Fact is that he is not on an inferior bike, just a different one, which puts "private bike" very much into another perspective in this case. Maxime Berger is the right example of running a private ducati, with no factory support.

MotoGP » 'That's when I realised my Yamaha career was ending'

Poncharal is a *****, and Colin wasn't too nice about Yamaha when it seemed likely that he was moving to Ducati in WSBK. (he never had the good stuff, not even when he was a factory rider, he stated) Then Ducati withdrew it's WSBK efforts, and suddenly Colin was all nice and feely and touchy with Yamaha again. It's all politics, and I am sure James knows how to ride a bike, he's just a not so good politician and yes, that will trickle down to on track performances.
