WSBK » Dominant Sykes unbeatable at Donington


The bikes are different this year...to suggest that it is the same bike he has been riding for the last 3 years is preposterous...this is not club racing, in case you have not been following for a couple decades...if that was the case he would be dominating...he could hardly do the times he was doing last year but within the last 2 rounds he has made tremendous progress...well small progress which results in tremendous gains at this level... Congrats TS66...glad you were able to remind a few haters why you were the one who brought Kawasaki out of the wilderness after 20 years!!! PS great job to Rea...nice haul of points when you are not the winner.. I expect he will win the title this year but hope Tommy can make it interesting to end.....

WSBK » Dominant Sykes unbeatable at Donington


reinmacre: @Joeski Applying your logic, yeah, the bikes are not the same but I guarantee TS66 is more familiar with the bike than JR65, who's been on it for five months and won eight of twelve races to boot.
Your assumption is only correct if JR had a major difficulty in transition. Rea said he was comfortable almost immediately and the bike in general suited his riding style back in November..if Rea had struggled with his riding style from the Honda to the Kawasaki...you would be saying something different. The point is, familiar or not, TS66 had a tougher adjustment to make with the new regs and the new 2015 Kawasaki.. Rea did a better job adapting and the results show...but now that TS is on top of things...lets see how it plays out...

MotoGP » Rossi: We gambled, it was the right decision


Guna4699: When every others prepare to race on Sunday this guy prepares to surprise on Sunday... from where did this pace come from?? not even a overnight magic this time,, it's between warm up and race,, really this goes on to tell about how good his crew is and the kind of understanding he has with them...
Gamble is not skill....as a Rossi fan this worries me...we all know Rossi can pull out the race day magic but when he cannot he will be 5 or 6th...we have seen this.. I think his crew are struggling....not that they are not good but making a random bet on set up is hardly a proficient or technical way to work or win... Rossi needs more weekends like Misano 2014!! I am not worried about his qualifying...he was never a genius on qualifying...but I am worried about his constant struggle throughout the weekend and then having to "gamble" on a decision and "thank god or God" it worked..even though he did not know if it would...

MotoGP » Rossi: Four title fighters - no Marquez ‘crisis’


Rossi the man...but I am HAPPY Lorenzo is doing the business...now all the crap talkers from the first 3 races can STFU....a rider has a few bad (4th place is bad I guess) moments and everyone writes them off......now they are doing the same to Marquez.... Rossi and Lorenzo already said MM will be back and both are aware of his potential and ability, so please let the races play out...fingers cross on you favourite and be happy for the excellent season we are witnessing...these riders do not lose talent overnight as some believe...... Lorenzo scores the most points in the last half of last year...and he has a slow start to the season and people were quick to write him off...which tells me, many of you on here know very little about motorcycle racing period!!! Good stuff from all the riders....Go DOvi as well...great race from Iannone and MM...

MotoGP » Rossi: The championship is still very long!


@serious4play Also the season was shorter 6 - 10 races, so Agostini won most if not all and rarely did he see 2nd or 3rd positions. Agostini would often lap the second place rider .....So Rossi has won as much as 10 races in a season but that also means he has 5-7 other podiums in the same season that were not wins...Agostini would also not show up for remaining races once he had the title... so there was no settling for 2nd with him hence the relatively low total podium count (considering how much he won and how many years) but high win amount....

MotoGP » Aprilia MotoGP form ‘in line with expectations’


Oli: Melandri is a head case, if the bike is good he can race with the best on his day, but when the bike is bad he is awful. We have seen it many times in his career, from his genius on the 990 Gresini bike (06) to being poor on the 800 Gresini bike (07), really awful on the Ducati (08) to being very good on the Hayate (09). If the bike works, so does Marco, but he has a weak mind.
I like Melandri but you are correct and maybe that is why he is not suited to this kind of ground up project..he needs instant results to fuel his continued performance...I suspect, out of the points in every race does nothing for his fragile ego... Aprilia should have left him in WSBK and brought him to MGP once the kit is more sorted with top 10 performances in 2017 maybe..
