WSBK » Unstoppable Rea doubles up in Thailand


SuperSic: Now gentlemen, can we give Rea that MotoGP ride he so rightly deserved?
Know you are being sarcastic to an extent but I will indulge...Rea would fit into MotoGP quite well...I believe he is better than Baz and Laverty and quite possibly better than most outside of the top 12 (if given equal machinery in MotoGP). On paper, however Rea is mere potential and has not really achieved anything to say he "deserves" a MotoGP ride but if Cal Crutchlow got one and didn't really do crap in WSBK either except win a few races...way less than Rea has done at that level...then hell yes he deserves a shot too!!! Cal turned out all right in MotoGP and podiumed a few times on a satellite bike so why couldn't Rea do the same? But TBH... Zarco, Salom, Kallio and Rabat would school Rea in MotoGP if all were on similar equipment....its all about the breeding...sorry but just an opinion!! Rea would eventually catch up but it would take a couple years!!

WSBK » Unstoppable Rea doubles up in Thailand


Rea is doing what most said he would and could on a proper supported ride.. I believed it just did not want to call it like it was a foregone conclusion! because we all know even with the best package the rider still has to put it on the top step and throughout the years we have seen good riders not perform on what is considered the best packages...so good job Rea!!! I am happy for Haslam as he is quieting a few haters right now but I know he is not satisfied with second fiddle to Rea...lets see how the other races go!! Still pulling for Sykes to come good! Great job by Troy Bayliss considering his time off racing at this level!!!! Gutted for Chaz but he is a survivor... Sylvain doing it steady as he usually does..think he will get better by mid-season. What happened to Canepa? In both races?

WSS » Wilairot claims historic first win on home soil


Sorry for Cluzel...but I believe this will be his year anyway... SuperGlue is struggling in my mind but this is also a new track and his comeback ride in Australia from dead last to 6th suggested he had the pace to race Cluzel for the win... so we will see on more familiar tracks.... Great job to Ratthapark....love seeing an underdog step on the top step!! To finish first, first you have to finish!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

MotoGP » MotoGP: 'Never go back to 800cc'


Bolts83 Agree with your points about the racing... It has always been the dominance of a couple guys and within the last 7/8 years it has been consistently 4 guys who stood a chance better than most eras to date!!!. but I laugh when people say "luck into a podium" so you can just imagine how I am rolling on the floor....effing dying...when you said/typed "flukey Hayden"....let me guess?!!! Hayden "lucked into a title?"!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Wow... 25 champions in the 68 years of GP racing from possibly under 1000 racers ever to compete at this level.....explain to me how does someone luck into a MotoGP title????????????????????????...PLEASE!!!

MotoGP » POLL: Who will win the 2015 Qatar MotoGP?


Really just do not know!!!! I want Rossi to win but logic says MM!! and with the preseason Jorge has had...I will not count him out. On the other hand the Ducatis are the dark horses because this GP15 has not been in a race yet so few have any ideas how the race duration will be...i.e. how well does it preserve the tyres? Typically Dani is only ok here and has never dominated or win at this track (I do not remember) so I think his battle will be for 4th or 5th with Dovi or Iannone if the Ducati's do not live up to the testing hype... Hell Dani may struggle against the Tech3 boys and Cal.... but we will see.. I like that I cannot predict this....exciting times already...

WSBK » Rea edges Haslam to take first Thai WSBK pole


Nice to see Rea and Haslam on top again...could be a sign for the season as to the title contenders but it is still early days... I think Troy is doing a very excellent job...given a proper preseason and more training and laps, it is not inconceivable to believe he would be competing at the top!! Lowes is looking good, I hope he has a better weekend this time around...Come on Sykes get in the game...last thing he needs now is these hating fans using his lower performance to slate him...

MotoGP » ‘The GP15 is a real Ducati’


Yearby23:
Codger: His finish positions in the Championship :- 2008...5th 2009...6th (beaten by a single point) 2010...5th (4th was Casey) 2011...3rd (4th was Dani) 2012...4th (3rd was Casey) 2013...8th (Ducati wasn't competitive) 2014...5th (Ducati wasn't competitive)\blockquote] 2009, Repsol Honda...2010, Repsol Honda... 6th and 5th aren't acceptable on that bike, especially when Casey's beating you on a Ducati that doesn't work. However, his performances on the Tech 3 and Ducati have been way more impressive than on the Honda.
So on average of 7 years of racing Dovi is top 5 in the world behind only the old and new aliens and achieved that even with 4 years of less than competitive machinery....not bad...I think he can win races on the GP15...

MotoGP » ‘The GP15 is a real Ducati’


I like Dovi but even I have knocked him on occasion about his lesser performance on the Repsol Honda compared to his teammates. He was 3rd in 2011 but Perdosa was injured and out for 2-3 rounds as well. I am not confident Dovi is a championship contender but most certainly at this point in his career and the way he has matured...Dovi can win MotoGP races!!! I think Iannone can win races as well with this new machine but Ducati still has some race set up to tweak and refine. Truthfully, I want Dovi to shut me up and have me eat my shoe by winning the title!! because I love an underdog story...even if he beats my favorite rider Rossi!!!!! Dovi is quiet and people mistake this for a lack of aggressiveness...I just believe he shuts up and let the racing talk for him and he was very vocal at Tech 3 and in testing so far...his actions speak louder than words...Yes his first year at Ducati was a struggle but who didn't?? besides Casey? He is looking good now...not sure the Ducati even need th

MotoGP » ‘The GP15 is a real Ducati’


@ VKal Ducati needs another CS to win races. Yes...if they had the same old bike that only works for Casey!! This GP15 is obviously different and that can be seen by both their riders being at the top. That infinite (tongue in cheek) level of adjustment has made the Ducati rideable (or so it seems at this moment) by more than 1 rider... and both are fast!! i.e. top of the timesheet. Give the workmen the proper tools and they will make it happen!! Dovi and Iannone can win races! is the GP15 up to it?...time will tell. PS. You do remember that Dovi is Tech 3's most successful rider???!!! in only 1 year!! of riding for them!!!
