WSBK » Bayliss to make sensational WSBK return!

I am more than surprised that people on here are talking about him winning.. have we all been watching motorcycle racing for only about 2 in this winter only? I have mad respect for Bayliss but in no way shape or form will he be competitive...I will be surprise/happy if he makes top 15...this is purely for nostalgia and for the fans, which I am loving by the way... you all realize that Biaggi just did a test for Aprilia and could barely run the times Haslam was doing and he also crashed and said there was a bit of rust and he needed the time to get into a rhythm...and that was just to make it around the circuit without falling off...NOT be fast...Biaggi retired as champ only 2 years ago....multiply that by 3 then add another year!!! and that is how long Bayliss has been away from world level racing....surely you all have not lost your minds over the winter???? GO BAYLISSTIC!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

WSBK » ‘Lots to improve’ but Torres impresses

Just thinking out loud but this lad was not only fast in one session almost immediately having missed most of the pre-season, but also he was faster in the last session... ahead of the former world Champion and just behind the elect of 2015... what I am wondering is how much faster?? when he actually gets some SBK racing experience!!! Simoncelli was immediately fast coming from 250's to the WSBK podium for Aprilia and I believe these GP boys (from that paddock) have a special grooming...they are doing quite well... Could we see a rookie champ because he is off to a dang good start?? ...hope he burns bright but doesn't burn out fast!!!

WSBK » Bayliss to make sensational WSBK return!

The tyres have evolved...the bikes are completely different especially this year....even in the rain...Troy has not faced the best at this level in 7 years...Bayliss will be happy just to finish...stop putting unnecessary pressure where Bayliss himself never intended....This is a great moment as many never get to see the greats or their favorite riders comeback after so many years!!! I am excited...and if by some miracle he gets into the top 10....then even better but not sitting expecting it because he was champ 7 years ago.....VERY UNREALISTIC!!! But I am dying to see him on that Ducati!!!!!!!!!!! Go TROY!!!!! This man is/was idol to many of those on this field right now!!! They will all be happy and humbled in his presence BUT they will race him like they would any other!! Maybe if he does well Biaggi may be tempted...he has not been gone too long...

MotoGP » FIRST LOOK: Ducati’s 2015 MotoGP machine

Beard9X: Joeski Can you tell me where exactly Ducati benefited from the ao called concessions? Fuel? At almost all tracks they did not need extra fuel due to the fact that Desmo engine does not need higher fuel for higher revs, therefore to produce more power. Tyre didn't help them either. It was only the engine development that helped them. The rest is just general allowance..
Are we really doing this? So.. you are asking me where they benefitted and you are also telling me where they benefitted in the same sentence...ok... I agree!!! PS...unlimited testing as well which means they could also develop and change the chassis with the changes to the engine simultaneously. The tyre did help them in qualifying starting closer to front....I thought they should have the same tyres as factory but hey...whatever..

WSBK » Phillip Island - Official testing results [Tuesday]

Braap: Both Alex and Niccolo's times are emphasised by the nature of PI. PI is a track where you can flow with the curves and use high corner speed so I think that PI times in general will be a bad predictor of how things are going to be.
Well it seems to me that last year they were 20 plus at this same circuit and if I am not mistaken they are racing against many of the same riders correct? This year they are in top 10..granted it is not the race...but regardless.. this is massive improvement or just a better rider...either way we can draw some definitive conclusions from this test...maybe not for the season as a whole but the EBR with Canepa is considerably faster than last year.....and for sure definitely better at Phillip Island...

WSBK » Lowes leads Rea in second WSBK test

Canepa in the top 10!!!! I knew he could persistently put that EBR in the top 15 but after 2 days testing...he improved into the top 10...albeit Guigliano and Guintoli are out of it but still....when did anyone on here think EBR would be top 10!!! Even the optimists figured points scorer but never anywhere capable of a top 10....I do not care that it is only testing, I know it is ONLY testing but the point EBR is in the top 10!! Who would have thought!! TBH...I am happy for the team even if they have not really turned a wheel in anger yet...this has got to raise that teams spirits after the debacle of last year!!!!!! and Jordi who???? (I kid...I know who he is) the kid looks like he has got it going on!! I do not think anyone suspected or even factored him into any equation where he would equal the front running pace...u saw what I did there?

MotoGP » Redding: My aim is to beat Crutchlow

Again...I say unto you.... Redding is not MM but neither are many riders on this field... Redding will not dominate anything as we are in the dark about the level of his kit and put simply... I do not personally believe he has the talent of MM. However, I believe he got the ride he deserved and has to now put up or shut up!! Personally speaking it will be 2016 (IMO) before he shows anything because of his handicap with a brand new team who have ZERO MotoGP experience. Redding's current position is understandable (kind of...he should at least be top 10...realistically) if disappointing... Bautista on Ohlins suspension would have been in the top 7 persistently...and I am sure Redding thought..."I will show Bautista how it is done on a factory bike"....Fact is he is on a better bike than what Bautista had and he did not realize how difficult that Honda was... period...much less on sub-par suspension...

WSBK » Rea quick despite focus on set-up

I am ok with any one of these top guys winning... I like them all...secretly I am pulling for Haslam a little more than most but if I had to bet, I would put money on Tom for the title...Rea will do well and challenge for the title and if he wins I will be very happy for him as well.... so basically I am probably the worst for predictions because it seems pretty open to me this year as Ducati is looking good, both ninja riders are looking good, Lowes will be strong and hopefully consistent and hopefully Sylvain will do something on that Honda.. WSBK will be interesting this year...looking to see what the rookies do as well...and Canepa on the EBR...
