WSBK » EBR scores first points but with Pegram


Truthfully...I applaud the effort but I do not understand the strategy...If you cannot manage to win/dominate or be consistent 1-3 in your weak national championship...why would you step on the world stage with guys and bikes that are faster and better?.... At a minimum these guys should be competing with the EVOs but they cannot even make it to superpole..why bother...they should have entered BSB (questionable) or another competitive championship like the CEV... Anyway I hope they achieve what they want to achieve!! it is better viewing for me if they do...

WSBK » Giugliano: I am constantly over the limit


I seem to remember the exact same thing said in 2002 when the 996 was coming to the end of it's life. Then came the 999, 1098 & 1198 and numerous championship wins followed. I have to agree that I am not a fan of the twin but I can appreciate its place in the motorcycle family....Ducati may need to change up...although a bunch of fans would probably be p****d if Ducati went with a new winning formula!! that's not a twin!! The rules keep changing to accommodate the twins... hence the 1098, 1198, 1199... In the end however, it is interesting to see different types of bikes with different solutions win races... if not, we may as well make it a one make series!.. how about an all Ducati series!!?? not that interesting?? then do not complain!! just appreciate the racing. I seem to remember when it was an all Ducati series people complained, now we have so much variety and people are still complaining...lol

BSB » Rejuvenated Kiyonari eyeing more wins


Someone doesn't lose talent and it seems to me that Kiyo (like a bunch of other Honda riders) was struggling on the Honda...Rea and Lowes are really the only standouts on a Honda... How many teams dropped Honda in favor of a more rider friendly bike (Kawasaki) in BSB???? First year on a BMW and he is putting it on the box and winning with it... this tells me he never lost it and the BMW is just allowing him to remind everyone that he is/was a world class competitor.... and yes! so is Shakey even though he struggled to show this in WSBK. Kiyo did win in WSBK where Shakey failed... So this tells me he is fast and has the ability to win another championship. He will have a tough time beating Shakey who is in his 3rd year with this Kawi package. The wins just gave Kiyo the confidence he may have lost the last few years with the Honda!!!

MotoGP » Crutchlow out, Iannone in at Ducati


Not sure what to say...if Ducati pressed this issue then they probably bought him out of 2014 and cut contract for 2015. If he walked then he might have got a lot less than we all think. I am interested in that statement that seemed like Iannone was in at factory Ducati from now on...does that mean Cal rides the Pamac until end of 2014??? or walks away without a ride and sits out the rest of the year?? Initially I thought he was just going to finish out the year and be done for next year... but the article is unclear about that part....need some follow up

MotoGP » What now for Aleix Espargaro?


"Nobody is displacing Honda in MotoGP unless & until there's a revolt & a revolution, the series imposes and/or Honda quit. " Wow...MM comes in and all of a sudden everyone forgets that Yamaha has more titles than Honda in the last decade!!!!! 6 for Yamaha and 3 for Honda by my count!! Honda has been displaced before and went barren for titles for almost 5 years!!!! consecutively....lucky they signed Casey!!! PS they never shut the series down then and they never quit either...So where is this mighty dictatorship that you are talking about?????? So try and convince me that they cannot be displaced is a futile effort. There is no conspiracy...Honda just has the better machine,at this time, more money and also the best rider we have seen in a long time ....probably since Rossi (early years!) PS MM will most likely be the only other rider (Rossi being the only one atm) in the last 14 years to win back to back titles!!

WSBK » VIDEO: Tom Sykes - In search of the perfect lap


It is amazing to see Tom's journey from an also ran to world champion. I rate him but I remember coupler or few years ago wishing and hoping he will do well and that Kawasaki will give him a good bike.... When they let him go at Yamaha, I was gutted for him because he had a good season...it was just against the back drop of a brilliant season for Spies.....anyway He is here...the new King!!!!!

MotoGP » What now for Aleix Espargaro?


PS...the difference for Honda is Marc Marquez...because Dani is in the mix with the other guys at this time. The 2 hondas have not cleared off into the sunset like Mercedes in F1... YES the Honda is better but 9 consecutive race wins is all about MM doing the business on the best bike....if not, then Dani would be winning too!!! The Legend Casey!! never dominated like this and he never defended his title, as fast and as naturally talented as he was!!! Yamaha got caught out on the tyre issue with JL... because JL dominated the last half of 2013 and people believe all of a sudden he is washed up....really?? Lorenzo was so fast he slowed down to bunch up the field...that can only happen when you are fast not slow!!!..then he cleared off for the win!! Honda does not rule GP they just have more money to build a better mouse trap...and 2006-2011 proves they get it wrong sometimes!!!

MotoGP » Home MotoGP title not a target for Marquez


Every World Champ has been accused of being on the best bike in the field...I find it funny Rossi was on the best Honda Rossi was on the best Yamaha and no competition (debatable) Nicky was on the best bike (since Yamaha was crap that year) Casey was on the best and fastest bike in 2007 Rossi was on the best Yamaha in 2008/09 Jorge won on the best Yamaha developed by Rossi (OHh and Rossi was out with a crash...) Casey won on the best bike in 2011 as Honda began its domination Jorge was again on the best bike with Casey injured and now....Marquez...well what can I say...every champ faces these criticism...lol I guess champions somehow always end up on the best bikes...hmmmm scary thought!!
