WSBK » Sykes using past disappointments to fuel 2015 bid

He is not referring to the team orders part...he is talking about the crash in Sepang that cost him possibly 16-25 points more than enough to win the title with no changes in what actually happened in the last half of 2014.... I get it.. These dudes are all hyper-competitive and live for this job/life of racing... They would all feel and act like was just worst because his relationship with Baz deteriorated even more since....and was made public etc etc...Remember too that his loss to Biaggi was also because of some half-point bulls*** given after he won a race and that was a deciding factor in the 2012 championship as Biaggi only won by 1/2 point...something that was out of his control again... TBH I am glad he is piss*d will just make him more competitive and make the racing more interesting...even if I didn't like him...but I do, so Go for it TOMMY!!!! (I think I actually remember the desert he came from 4 years ago when no one thought he would have a chance in he

MotoGP » Marquez: I had to cool down after the '58!

Interesting year....MM will be a title contender and quite possibly the doubt (barring any injury etc)...but the better news or prospect is that DP is looking good and both Yamahas are looking good too. There are 2 more test that the teams will do and I am sure that they all have stuff to iron out...Starting the year I believe the top four are much closer than last year and the end of year will be dependent on who develops/improves and pushes to stay or move ahead...

MotoGP » Sepang MotoGP test times - Friday (Final)

One group on here is using one lap fast times to crown the champ, a little smarter group is looking at the race pace of Dani which indicates that he could be closer this year than last. The race pace of the other 3 are competitive with each other BUT again this is testing and all teams will come back with solutions for next test and anything can happen this is the whole purpose.... I was surprise that Rossi fans (I am a Rossi fan) started acting all crazy on day one talking like he will fight for the title. YES this is the hope but please do not embarrass the rest of Rossi fans but using DAY 1 lap times as the crowning factor because now you all have to shut up and watch MM do his thing, I hope you gave MM praise when he stomped the lap time as well....everyone including MM fans cannot logically draw a definitive conclusion from this one test that any 1 rider has the sole possibility of championship title....again..the lap times is an indication (it may be a good bet) but otherwise it

MotoGP » Rossi: I'm not very satisfied

The good news is that in testing is where you want all the issues to surface not on a race weekend....but again (as a Rossi fan) this is why I tell people stop smack taking during testing because yesterday everyone was acting all combative and crazy because Rossi was first (most of the day) and now they are all quiet.... we cannot conclude what the entire year will be like with the first day of testing or even during the tests in general... The tests are a good indication of potential and winter preparedness but as the season progresses other teams come better and sometimes the gap will close up like Yamaha did in the last half of 2014... But another good news is that Lorenzo seems on it today and even with problems Rossi is within .7 of the top on the fast lap...that said he was slower than yesterday by 3 tenths so this does not paint the actual picture of his situation but rather shows that he had/has some issues on the second day of......wait for it......TESTING!!!

WSBK » Biaggi rules out wild-card WSBK return

Glad that was cleared up....whole bunch of speculation earlier about how unhappy Haslam would be and how Aprilia would displace their second rider for Max....blah blah blah.... I myself had an opinion on it but I said IF he came back the wild card would be the way to go after many laps testing and getting back up to speed not displacing anyone in 2015 because he has been out for too long and would need 100s of laps to regain his competitive edge and sharpen his reflexes.. Anyway this is good to know and settle the speculation although it did keep us busy during the

MotoGP » Espargaro tempers expectations of Suzuki at Sepang

Still early days but as I said in the previous Suzuki articles.....10th in the final 2015 standings will be their best bet.... Not the odd top 7 on a good day for them couple with a bad day for the top 9....but over all. I expect 2016 to be the year they step up closer to the top 6... I asked everyone to be realistic since this is a brand new bike and they had a lot of reliability issues to resolve first before making the thing faster..... Good news is the chassis seems suited to Esparago and if they can keep this feeling as they get more power they will be alright...

MotoGP » Rossi: First impressions so positive

Beard9X: Marquez's ability to churn out fast laps at the end of a race is one of the defending world champion's strongest attributes. Lol, that's no MM's ability! Since when riders can tell rubber nnot to wear out? Lol without the mighty Repsol, MM is just another awesome rider. He wins because the Repsol is allowing him to win. ....Don't forget that Honda is the main reason behind the control tyre!
It's not about him telling the tyre when to wear's about him being able to physically manage to ride the bike at consistent speed even when the tyre does wear out...Rossi is referring to MM ability to push on and be fast even when the other riders have to slow down for fear of crashing. YES, the Honda is/was better at preserving that wear so that he is faster at the end. Both reasons contribute to his end of race speed...

MotoGP » Sepang MotoGP test times - Wednesday (Final)

I am sorry but you guys are splitting hairs here....without the advantages of the electronics and seamless downshift....and possibly different chassis... There is the 2 seconds Hayden and the rest are missing, I have not seen anything saying the chassis is also from the factory Repsol of 2014..the other 1 sec or less is about the team, support, set up and Hayden (or other rider inserted here) talent of being up at the front..... It is my belief that talent wise most of these riders that are not on the factory machines are within 1 sec of MM's riding ability...of course...Cal and Redding struggling at this moment is not lending credibility to my but they are brand new to the bikes and are having a 2 year experience handicap in comparison with the reigning their performance in the first test is not proof...we will speak again about mid way through the season...

MotoGP » Marquez, Pedrosa unveil 2015 Repsol Honda in Bali

Yea...I agree that this paint job is now iconic and trademarked...this brand recognition is the sought after holy grail in the advertisement and business world....BUT... that does not make it the best looking bike out there!! It looks good but far from the best looking bike. However, I will get bashed but the new livery of the Yamaha is much better and not quite like last year!!! Last year I thought that NGM Forward had the best looking bike.....because it was creative and stood out... and I think it may well be the best again IMO...but I like Yamaha and this 2015 bike is better than last year..... Do not get me wrong...I like the Honda just do not believe it is the best and it is too predictable.... Yamaha is too.. to an extent, but the difference is clear with Yamaha and it looks better than last year....I did not think the same of last year's Yamaha.
