WSBK » Buriram - Race results (2)


cassyo: I'm wonder wether, over the winter, the Green guys have involuntary given Tom the wrong bike (i.e.-Loris's), keeping the good one for JR ?
The bikes are all new specs and at this level are likely completely different bikes to what they raced last year!! Rea has said that his advantage is that he does not have a reference such as the last year's bike to compare it to so he just rides it (it is new to him regardless) whereas Sykes is trying to regain feelings and character that he has lost this year from riding a "different Kawasaki superbike" over the last 4 years. There is no conspiracy...Rea has adapted faster to his new bike than Sykes has period.. but the next rounds will be the telltale as Sykes is not really good at PI and at this new circuit..Rea has adapted better and simply blitz the whole field.. period!!

WSBK » Unstoppable Rea doubles up in Thailand


RA45: Tom, sorry but you will now have to accept the fact that you are now the NO2 rider in the Kawasaki garage.
Still early days bro...Sykes has traditionally struggled at PI and at this new circuit Rea has outperformed the whole field...plain and simple!! I think the more familiar rounds where Sykes has gone well in the past will be a better indicator...you all are just too quick to write off a top rider for a whole bunch of other reasons besides talent, ability, and past performance!! What will you say if Sykes doubles up in Aragon? Does Rea become no#2 again? too much wishy washy stuff on here...let the racers race...riders do not win because of Facebook likes and dislikes!!!!!!!!!!!

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 » Rea displays title credentials with ‘perfect’ double


PS. Being visibly "not happy" on the podium does not mean that all of a sudden he hates Rea or is a sore loser. It means he is a competitor who will not settle.. he just wants to win. The rivalry and all this bashing is being created by you guys..the fans... these 2 guys actually get on pretty well...I guarantee you Tom and Rea are concerned with their own racing and not worrying about what the next guy is doing. Certainly if Tom's problems continue then he and Kawasaki will have to take a look at what is or is not happening to figure a solution...but for now he is working on it and the next few rounds will determine the issue because NOBODY had an answer for Rea today and PI is not a known Sykes' circuit...so lets see what the next rounds bring...

WSBK » Rea displays title credentials with ‘perfect’ double


"Tom looked a sore looser after the race and on the podium but that's only my observations! " Of course he does....he wants to be first! TBH you see sore loser...I see disappointed racer who knows he is capable of better. Typically guys that are happy with 3rd place are usually 4th or worse (do you think Haslam is happy?? considering where he has been for the last 5 years...hell yes...if he was third he would be happy...at least for now until the novelty wears off) and when they get third they are ecstatic...guys that win often cannot/will not be happy with 3rd. Tom is just not getting the Ninja working right now and yes! on equal kit he also realizes that he is being out-performed by his teammate...so he is visibly not happy...did you expect something different from the former champ and title challenger for the last 3 years in a row???

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...
