WSBK » de Puniet getting up to speed on Suzuki


jlav: don't expect to see him up front as this is a second rate team with a rider well known as a crasher.
Glass half full? or half empty? You seem to be the latter....DePuniet is new to the class and his team is trying. Suzuki has not put forth the effort IMHO but whether you are his fan or not, the more competitive riders the better.... I simply wish him well as I do for all the others participating in my favorite sport.... but not you...hey..its cool...opinions are like a**holes, everybody has one..... and you are certainly free to splurt your crap when you feel like!! Please do not take offense...it's just, I get tired of the bad fortune-telling from so called fans of the sport!

MotoGP » Miller knocks two seconds off his Sepang best


I always try to be positive and Jack seems to have the ability and fortitude to do well BUT well on an Open Honda is 12th!! in 2015, is this what he came to MotoGP for... with his inexperience it was highly unlikely he would get a satellite bike much less a factory bike.... He (and other riders) need to rip up moto2 and come to motoGP like MM did!! Although Rabat is good he had to work harder than others to achieve his goal possibly because he does not have the most natural talent but if he rips Moto2 next year which I believe he will then he is going to be a hot commodity for MotoGP in 2016!! IMO...Miller needed to do this BUT I cannot blame him...for SNATCHING up one of the biggest opportunity he may ever get in his life! He could have easily gone to moto2 and got eaten by the Piranhas!!! never to make it to MotoGP!! Good luck to the lad in any case...I hope he surprises us all!!

MotoGP » Miller knocks two seconds off his Sepang best


"... he'll get more out of riding the open bike than he would out of winning a bunch of Moto2 races" Not sure if I agree...I think he needs the experience of pushing in moto2 and battling for top positions on "similar" equipment to other top riders. I do not believe moto2 is the only path to success but I think he needed the experience and time and confidence of winning on the moto2 bike first..as MM did and others before him. Riding around for the next 2 years struggling to place top 10 is not what riders want for confidence!!! and unfortunately this is what he has coming for the next 2 years. He will perform well for what the machine is capable of IMHO but he will be fighting for mid-pack results which can hurt a riders confidence in his winning abilities/capabilities!!!! Can you imagine a racer not winning for years??? this takes its toll and makes the rider questions his ability...even if he knows the machine is lacking..

WSBK » Haslam already lapping faster on Aprilia than Honda


Truthfully, it is not just the fact that he is faster that I am impressed with because let us be honest the Aprilia was one of the top bikes of 2014 and faster than all...period. What is drawing my attention to Leon is that he is doing the faster time on the supposed "EVO" or modified "EVO" spec bike, known to have less electronics and power(?) and topping his own times on the Honda superbike in less than 2 days!!!....focusing on the fact that he is also doing this on a new (to him) bike compared to a bike that he was on for almost 2 years....minus all his injury time!!!! I think that speaks volume to his potential and the ability that many believed he somehow lost. I had hope the Honda would suit him but he is not Johnny Rea and neither was anyone else!!! He was good on the Suzuki and OK on the BMW...I hope the Aprilia brings him back to his 2010 status!!!

WSBK » de Puniet getting up to speed on Suzuki


Second rate team? not bad...race winners and multiple podiums in 3 years.. Riders like Laverty and BSB champion Lowes and Camier all rode/riding for this team... seems like a top growing team IMHO!! but that is just an opinion! If Suzuki gets its thumb out and give them a base bike to work with, they will be very good.... PS you do realize that they are not even a factory team right? All tuning is done in house...I think Yoshimura only supply/builds the engines but the team tunes them... I personally do not like how Denning conducts business but the team is good and improving.... I wish them well....hope Suzuki steps up their ivolvement as I also wish Honda steps up theirs with Pata Honda!!

MotoGP » Miller knocks two seconds off his Sepang best


It is still early days yet and he is here...nothing any of us can do to change that. So let us move forward.... Right now what is making him look good with less to worry about is the fact that Redding is looking worst off at the moment...on the factory bike. I believe Redding is suffering because of a new team to MotoGP... he needed a more experience crew to guide him and now him and team are in a learning phase which may mean a struggle this year. Miller being a rookie with no pressure but to learn the bike is gathering steam and doing better each practice...so we will see how thee year pans out and keep an interesting eye on his progress....

WSBK » Haslam already lapping faster on Aprilia than Honda


JedPB67:
RyanJG: Leon has already proven in one day of testing that Guinters won't be retaining his world title next year.
A bit early to imply that Haslam is going to win the championship. If you base your predictions on testing .....
Easy killer..u read too far into the statement....Leon proved how crappy the Honda is/was by lapping faster on an "EVO" Aprilia than on the Honda SBK. Does not bode well for Guintoli on a Honda aiming to retain the title was the point NOT that Leon will win the title... that was never mentioned.... just the bench mark of how much Haslam improved having left the Honda and the question of how much Guintoli will underperform having left the Aprilia... PS faster in 2 days than he ever was in 2 days on Honda on a close to EVO spec....

MotoGP » Rossi gives thumbs-up to new chassis, swing-arm


Rossi will always be my rider... I respect all these guys but once he leaves MotoGP will continue but a big part will be missing!! I am hoping for a 10th title and he has all my support and belief.... however, I will not come on here and argue and put other riders down and talk smack when I know stuff happens and the biggest example of that was JL in 2014!! Look at how he ended 2013, I would even argue the possibility of a 2013 title for JL had he not incurred the injury... I was for sure that Marc would have a hard time taking the title again but alas...history shows how it started for arguably the fastest rider of 2013 who slowed up the whole field to implement strategy in Valencia last year... no one could challenge him in Valencia last year..also DP at the end of 2012 was fantastic and look how 2013 ended for him... Anyway...I expect Rossi to be good next year...I am really hoping for a title challenge...

MotoGP » Melandri: We know we are late…


Please do not tell me Aprilia is was testing using the ART in CRT etc blah blah blah... Aprilia gave some parts to some teams that wanted to race they barely got the support but they did get a lot of promises. With that said in retrospect Aprilia could have been much further if they took the ART project more seriously. They could have had more data and more riders gunning for their seats but it seems MotoGP was a later thought, thinking they would follow Kawasaki and just do WSBK, once they realize that the WSBK crowds were dwindling and that MotoGP was regaining dominance in promotion and viewership with DORNA's plan...now MotoGP became a priority particularly since they can now check the TITLE blocks in WSBK!!!
