BSB » Brookes rules himself out of title hunt


Bridewell will be #1 rider at SMT next year, Brookes is leaving...lol Jokes aside he is improving but a little too late for a championship run with only 1 victory to his name. TBH I like Bridewell but he has underperformed this year IMHO. He had an excellent run last year at the end with the Yamaha ( and the Kawasaki too) but he has not improved on that at all...in fact he has less podiums this year but let's see because there are a few more races...yet to run

MotoGP » Loris Baz looking for a ride


Brain:
. What bunch of money to convert the bike are you talking about???? They do nothing but set up the bike to suit his style and weight distribution...but they have to do that for every single rider....Hell, with Camier already riding for them the probably have 80% of that resolved already regarding what a taller rider would want???the other 20% is rider preference TIME IS MONEY !!!!!!!! Poor comeback...set up is required for every rider...so still not sure what u r saying....time is money...I agree ...but name one rider that does not need a bike set up to race....he must be saving the team a whole lot....hell let us fire the chief mech...lol he is no longer needed....because no other rider needs bike set up except Baz

MotoGP » Loris Baz looking for a ride


......But you all might be right if he (Baz) had 4 or 5 wins to his name this year his situation might be different....on the best bike his best result is pole position....once??? Hell, don't get me wrong I like Baz but his results haven't made him a great standout....neither does Eugene but Eugene has more history and everyone knows about that Suzuki. On the best bike Laverty produced....on the best bike Baz has not....working on his third year...years ago it was normal for a rookie to spend 3 or more years getting up to the level of top guys...unfortunately the sport has moved on with more riders...showing the talent early...Spies, Marquez..both rookie world champs...then Rossi and a few others who won world championships in second year...Lorenzo was a title contender in second year...so it becomes clear that champions will be champion challengers early...so now riders are given less time to show and prove... Baz is a really good rider, my guess...he hasn't proved that without a dou

Brain:
Peter Light: One of the things that I love about bike racing is that it does not discriminate (gender, race, religion etc) and that everyone gets the same treatment if they want to have a go. Are we in danger of this changing?
Here is the deal, Baz is nothing special and the team decided that there are numerous riders who are at his talent level that will not require them to spend a bunch of money converting the bike to fit. If he had separated himself from other riders on track and shown he was a special talent, they would have taken him, but he hasnt. Business 101.

So the fact that some riders find other riders set up useless...is irrelevant to you. Years of data is great but what happens when the bike is new? Or the rider was different? The new rider requires different set up geometry etc. point is, the crew chief is paid regardless, no more or less because the rider is taller...his job is just to find a solution regardless of height or weight.

MotoGP » Loris Baz looking for a ride


Brain: Leon Camier is just another classic example of a long list of Brits who ......... His finishes in 4 full WSBK seasons are. 12th 7th 14 th 11th Leon was discarded because he is not very competitive on the world stage.
Results speak.. But Leon was dropped in favor of Laverty..he had no rides lined up because of the timing.... Not because he wasn't good enough. If he wasn't good enough he would not be receiving so many call ups for substitution... Let alone in motogp.... However a few wins would help his case...which he did in the EVO class..... Like Aleix in CRT... good enough but on lesser equipment...

MotoGP » Alvaro Bautista confirmed with Gresini Aprilia


RSMick:
Why do people believe Melandri could run up front? He couldn't on the Honda in 2010.
Well...he was a championship contender twice in this category...his decision to go to Kawasaki and spouting off against Honda lost him his ride...not his ability because we also saw what he did on the second rate Hayate Kawasaki team after Kawa pulled out of GP.... funny how people only remember 1 year!!! but the 6 before that are conveniently forgotten!!

MotoGP » Alvaro Bautista confirmed with Gresini Aprilia


RSMick: Not forgotten at all Joeski, ..... Can you remember his terrible first year on the Tech3 Yamaha in 03?.....yet always had top kit, so how do you expect him to come good in GP?
You are talking about the Yamaha that did not podium at all in 2003? With Checa and Biaggi.... I argue that he was on an inferior bike but a respectable team.... His worst year was 2010!... Bear in mind at that time the Honda had not won a title in 4 years either and they were a little lost trying figure out how to beat Yamaha.. But for whatever reason his return to Gresini did not bear fruit after a surprising year and above expectation performance on the Hayate!!! I am not sure the Ducati got into his head too much because his performance on the satellite Hayate the following year was beyond everyone's expectation.
