MotoGP » Tyre, 'camelback' problems for Redding


I think redding will be fine and I am sure he doesn't believe that the factory bike will ride itself.... But if he is doing positions 10 - 14 in general on an Open Honda, it is not a forgone conclusion that he can achieve 4 - 8 consistently on the factory Honda with brembos and ohlins. Tech 3, LCR and Ducati will be his main worries.... In general I believe he will be battling for 6th overall and on average with occasional 4th and 5th and maybe a podium on an off weekend for the top four..... To me that would be a successful first factory year for him.... Any better and he is doing great....

MotoGP » Lack of fitness cost me in race, says Lorenzo


Dang...you guys are hard...considering none of you are motogp riders...you all seem to know so much!! It seems to me that Jorge was more affected by the heat...looking from the outside we would all ask why and he said it...it was his fitness. Fitness in nice good weather is different than fitness in searing heat...these extreme conditions exasperates the upper echelon of ones fitness level and while he seemed great in Motegi... he simply barely coped in Malaysia...enough for a podium though With that said...I would bet money that what he wanted to say was not said because he knows that people would jump on him (which they are doing anyway) and blasting him for using excuses.... If you ask me, he was on the wrong tyre!!!! but that is my excuse not JL... both guys that beat him were on the medium tyre and I believe Dani was also on the medium...Jorge chose the wrong tyre because he thought it was too hot for the medium...which funnily enough was probably decided because he was so dang h

WSBK » Haslam on track for best season since 2011


I believe there are more talented riders than there are competitive machines.. Haslam is talented for sure but he requires a competitive bike to showcase his skills...some others will do well on many makes of machinery. Rea, I believe is one such rider and to be totally fair who else has been competitive on a Honda since 2010??? Checa won a few pre-2010 (or in 2010), Kiyonari also had a couple wins in 2010 or prior, I think, but everyone else (besides Rea) has failed on that machine... Melandri may have shown up Haslam on the BMW with a few wins when Haslam didn't!! so I get it that many people doubt his capabilities. For me though, his injuries have played a greater part in his undoing on the Honda as opposed to a lack of ability.... I, for one, hope he finds a good ride...here in WSBK or BSB....I do not think he is done yet...he has unfinished business in WSBK since Suzuki shafted him out of the Championship in 2011!!!

MotoGP » Rossi: Sepang podium long time coming


@ctmfirst Relax bro! Look how fast Lorenzo was in FPs this weekend....and what did he say after Rossi beat him.....He was not fit enough...which means that at the moment, not earlier in the year!!! Rossi is the better rider/riding better and beat him fair and square on the same bike... Last year Lorenzo was the better rider and beat Rossi fair and square on similar equipment...I will not argue the whole bike did not suit him etc etc because the same can be said for Lorenzo this year with the tyres....so this can turn into an endless game of excuses.... Point is beginning of the year and now...Rossi is still able to beat Lorenzo and Lorenzo can also beat Rossi as demonstrated in Montegi.... Last year we did not see this happening for Rossi and keep in mind Rossi is now battling with an improved Marquez and an improved Honda and still doing well. Lorenzo is having a better last half but guess what Rossi is and can still beat him....am I right or not?

WSBK » Under pressure Giugliano seeking ‘satisfaction’


@Abefan I know the saying but I do not remember who said it...but your words are dang near on the money..... A couple people disagree with me even though my post was fairly neutral albeit a bit optimistic. Guigliano has ability and talent or he would not be on this field like many others. He has already proven to be fast although inconsistent and, this is my opinion, but it certainly would explain the reason he has a factory Ducati contract!! not sure what people disagree with, except the opinion of whether he can or cannot overcome his weakness (which no one knows and only time will tell). I give a positive view just because I believe it will be better for the championship and Ducati if he does overcome his "crashness".. couldn't find a better word...lol

WSBK » Sykes on WSBK showdown: ‘We have the advantage…’


The Aprilia could do well here...that straight is effing long and the circuit in general allows the use of horsepower...not that the Kawasaki is short but this could play into the Aprilia's hands....particularly if Melandri can also get between Guintoli and Sykes. I think Melandri could very well win the races but will he? If Gintoli is close and the title is on the line....basically the Aprilias need to be first and second (Guintoli first of course) if Guintoli is to win the title... I am gunning for Sykes to win because I have not forgotten about the wilderness he came from on that Kawasaki a few years ago after 2009!! Next year I will see who I will cheer for because IF Rea goes to Kawasaki, I think that is the missing ingredient for him...Anyway looking forward to this one!!

WSBK » Under pressure Giugliano seeking ‘satisfaction’


I really hate the "IF" game...but here goes... IF this dude keeps it upright he is going to cause problems for this whole field next year! I am saying this because he is obviously fast... no arguing that but he over rides and pushes over the limit... not sure if it is because of the bike or he cannot understand/interpret the feedback from the bike about where the limit is...at any rate, IF or when he finds it, he will be a serious contender!! The same cannot be said about slower riders at this level!! Guigliano is fast, he needs a mentor/teacher or someone strong on the guidance side to tame his temperament... that day may never come and he may always be the fast crasher that amounted to nothing but an also-ran.... for his sake..I hope not because the potential is there!!

MotoGP » Rossi: Sepang podium long time coming


ctmfirst:
pogo: True realist, and ctm don't forget I it hadn't been for Rossi other 3 awful years he might have several more championships, that really was a daft comment ctm I say awful, 2 on a dog of a bike and 1 trying to work out how to ride the yam that had been developed for his team mate in his absence.
Nobody's fault he went to Ducati.Ambition to win with three different bikes,nothing more.Last year wasn't awful,just normal with Lorenzo on form.
With all respect bro...you started the "IF" game so do not get upset and defend your "IFFY" position when someone else put another "IF" in there. IF you can do it then anyone can do it too...IF Rossi did not go to Ducati.... you see where I am going with this IFFY situation????
