WSBK » WSBK Imola: Latest Championship standings

Rea will not move to MotoGP next year! 2016 maybe... when the rules are levelled out. At that point he may not want to switch because it would depend on the machinery he could/would get. I think Maverick Vinales is in for a top honda ride over Rea so he may decide to sit where he is at and rack up multiple WSBK titles if he can! Rea will/cannot replace Pedrosa.. bag on Pedrobot all u want, DP is in a different league to Rea!! Either that or take step back/forward (depending on your view) to Moto2 and work his way into a top MGP ride. I really cannot see him getting a better ride than the top moto2 contingents. Not that I do not rate him, in fact I like Rea but I am not confident he would be the cream in MotoGP. Probably because that dogged CBR has suppressed him for so long!!

WSBK » Rea celebrates first pole since 2011

Would like to see what Rea could do on another machine but that could also be a disaster as he has been on this one brand for so long. Anyway good stuff by Rea.... I have always preferred the Sunday racers anyway...Haga, Vale etc. Although I was thoroughly impressed by Sykes last year in pole domination as well as Spies back in 2009!

MotoGP » Espargaro: Open ECU means podium sliding away

I think he was hopeful after a fantastic preseason and a star turn in Qatar(minus the crashes) he did finish 4th in a fast track that was expected to put the open bike at the back of the top ten. He was always worried about race distance on tires but I think Qatar gave him a false sense of possibilities!! He did not consider the factory developments starting after the first few races! Bradley Smith said it...that their best chance was in Qatar and the first races, so I am perplexed that Aleix was this blind-sided or surprised!! I also knew this and I do not race in GPs.

MotoGP » Lorenzo: Soft tyre better for our bike

SkyWilk: Lorenzo knows he needs more speed, and since he can't get it on the straights, he has to work with the only other possibility: corners.
Corners and do not forget braking!!! JL (I highly rate) is a little nervous to try new changes just like DP. Rossi took a new chassis and tested it in FP and used it in the race. JL rejected it too early IMHO. He cannot make it up in the corners yet because the tyres will not allow him so why not focus on the brakes. I am not saying to forget tyre development but he is limited on his options and needs to put focus on other matters.. at any rate he'll come good but he is trying to salvage 4th when he has nothing further to lose.. test the changes and work with much worse could it get??

WSBK » Sykes rebuffs Melandri for Aragon double

Say what you will about Melandri but he will go for the win!! Smart or not he makes it exciting!! I am happy for Sykes but I want Melandri to do well also...but this field is so talented I am having a hard time picking a favourite... I want Guintoli to show good, Chaz, Leon Camier...Alex Lowes.... I guess this just bodes well for the series...lots of likeable and talented riders... Good job Sykes!! and Baz....

WSBK » Lights-to-flag for Sykes in Spain

Suzuki MGP 2015 for Sykes could be an option but with Laverty on Suzuki and DePuniet being very familiar with and working to develop the Suzuki not sure if he will go there, although Suzuki would be silly not to look at him as a viable option!! Sykes has been through the ringer with development duties on the Kawasaki (by development, I mean feedback for development) not sure if he wants to do that again because that means a few years on the backfoot, possibly with no chance of (relative) success or challenge of victory even in the occasional races. He may well stay at Kawasaki...good pay, top bike with all the possibility for success (for championships)...cannot say the same for MGP...unless he lands a Yamaha or Honda factory bike next year...2016 may be the year as things should even out with control ECU etc etc! by then he may think he is too old and just stay with WSBK anyway.

WSBK » Camier stars on WSBK return, wins EVO class

This guy deservesa top ride....The timing of contracts last year and when he was dropped in favor of Laverty left him no time to find a ride... I believe a handful of teams will attempt to sign him at the end of this year. BMW Italia may very well press for an additional bike for him as they are under represented this year with the official BMW pull out!! I think BMW thought they would have a buch of customer racing teams once they pulled out like Ducati but that didn't happen. They will be looking at getting involved more in the coming year/s could be good for Camier.

MotoGP » Moto2: Vinales takes control for maiden Moto2 win

I like Maverick..and to have won already in Moto2 is better than MM accomplished... However, I do not see him as an all out dominant rider, just amazingly consistent but then again I do not believe he has had the same level of equipment support as MArquez did... so I am not sure if he comparison is even fair Please do not get me wrong, I am a MM fan and supporter from his first Moto2 entry...(did not know him much in 125s because i did not follow 125s as closely just knew he was the champ). I believe MM has loads of talent and would win on anything but his dominance may have been aided by more/better technical and equipment support....BUT so has every top rider in the world and history of racing!! including my favorite Rossi!! I think Maverick shows the same potential and would have dominated more on a Red Bull KTM last season as opposed to only 3 wins!

MotoGP » Ben Spies: There’s one kid who could cut it…

And that is just the fans... so I cannot imagine the little guy trying to make a team and tracking it across the U.S. hoping for sponsors and money to push his son racing.... In Europe motorcycle racing is just more popular and attracts more crowds and probably more sponsors,who may find this attractive and though there is no real money in running a little team they may be able to get by with just sponsorship... The guys here can hardly find sponsors because this is such a niche market and no one really cares about sport bike racing so that becomes all out of pocket funding. Couple that with little/no organization to develop young riders and you have a bunch of expense for nothing!! Motorcycle racing is just a step above basket weaving here in the U.S. so it will always be a struggle to get it back off the ground where it has fallen in today's society and economy.
