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!!!

WSBK » Rea set for final Honda appearance?


The 2007 Firebalde was the last real developed CBR1000RR... and Toseland delivered the title with it! No one else has done it... Kawasaki put in a real effort with Sykes for 3 years and delivered a title... Honda needs to step it up with their involvement!! I agree that this is not a factory effort at this time but Honda needs to make it one!! I believe Rea will do well on the ZX-10R but I do not believe it is a foregone conclusion that he will title on it in his first year...Sykes had 3 full years on that machine...so to think Rea will come in and dominate is stupid... I will say if he is not battling for the championship (not necessarily winning it) in his first year then it could be rough for his future prospects!!! but if he has a first year comparable to Laverty on Aprilia in 2013...then the future is bright for him, title or not....keep in mind that Laverty was mediocre in 2012 on the title winning bike and look where he is now...off to MotoGP even though 2014 was a bust!

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!!

WSBK » Rea set for final Honda appearance?


grantrd: When Rea was first on the hanspree Honda it wasn't old, yet he still didn't win the championship. Checa and kyonari were even winning races with it. Honda rewarded his loyalty with a go on stoners Repsol Honda and to be honest he was nowhere on it. Besides the ten kate effort isn't a factory Honda effort it's a privateer effort. So it's not a reflection the big H's effort in wsbk as someone said, because they aren't even there. Rea better win almost every race and walk the championship on the zx10 like everyone here thinks he will otherwise he will have lots of egg on his face after all the hype... The blade is still one of the best selling superbikes in the world and it's dominated road racing over the last few years. TT lap record anyone... I hope he leaves ten kate then he has no more excuses ...
Not sure I agree...Checa won a few races as well as Kiyo but all failed and never delivered a title on that bike!! Checa left to Ducati and won a title so
