WSBK » Downbeat Sykes admits to Kawasaki struggles


Have you all been watching WSBK for the last 4 years...someone on here talk about Sykes only looked good because he had Baz as a teammate!!! Really dudes?? and was he fighting his teammate for the title?? I thought he won against all the other manufacturers as well....just an idea, but the guy who battled for the title for the last 3 years does not need excuses ...everyone should be able to see 1. Rea is currently doing better 2. Sykes is struggling The latter cannot possibly be because of talent as we know what he is capable of and he is not just losing to his faster teammate but to a few other riders....he obviously has an issue with set up and that may be because of the new rules or the new bike not suiting his needs or style and he and team need to figure it out or suffer his worst season in the last 3 years.

MotoGP » Second fastest Crutchlow still unsure


EdOz: It seems Crash.net has let the intern proof read the text again... and Crutchlow is a World Superbike Champion, not Supersport.
We all make mistakes brother...even you...it's all good... but Cal wished he was a Superbike Champion on the same bike that Spies won on the year before..... he did some amazing fast laps but only managed 2 or 3 wins the whole year...he had a double which was good at Imola..I believe, but that's it. This was the reason people did not understand what he did to deserve a seat at Tech 3....

MotoGP » Ninth place Rossi ‘a lot more satisfied’


cont'd.... The Open bike they passed to FWD Racing was allowed as it was a private team not a factory effort and all the private teams were permitted in the Open class to provide parity against the full resource factories. Yamaha simply caught Honda out as Honda "thought" they had to build a production racer. Yamaha without the same resources read between the lines and realized that they could effectively use an older prototype...not of current factory spec (already made so no more major costs...and apply the standard ECU and be well in the rules...Honda was furious! mostly because they did not think of it first!! so their Proddy racer was a flop...but look at the bike they got this year....much better and would have probably done some damage last year...

MotoGP » Ninth place Rossi ‘a lot more satisfied’


separated: Do people even bother to read the rules? Honda and Yamaha could have chosen to go Open like Ducati, but they chose not to. The Open category was made to be a cheap and competitive alternative to Honda and Yamaha's factory route. They lose out in qualifying because they chose not to go Open? They have 2-4 liters less fuel? They have less engines and can't develop them? Tough.
Actually, I used to argue the same point, that would make us both wrong!!!! Honda could not go Open class nor Yamaha because they had wins in the 2013 season. Only factory bikes without a win in the previous 2013 (prior to 2014) season could qualify for open concessions. Ducati had no wins and so they qualified if they so choose as well as all the new manufacturers who also would not have wins in the 2013 season. This was the defining factor of the rule so Honda and Yamaha did not qualify. The Open bike they passed to FWD Racing was allowed as it was a private team not factory ef

MotoGP » Moto2: Lowes wins Zarco battle to stay on top with record time


I am real happy for Sam.... now he might be the exception but everyone (in general) always talk smack about production racers will never compete at this level because they did come through moto3/125s etc etc...well we know Cal is doing pretty good even though many slate him...but I am real happy that Sam is putting down his name in rubber on this field...Supersport World Champion doing the business....with that said, hopefully the race is the same, with him challenging at the front... I like Tito and I wish him all the best but I have some coin on Sam this season (mostly because he is doing the same at multiple different tracks that require different technique and strengths...this to me, means a well rounded rider) and I expect Zarco is going to be a handful for them both!!!!

WSBK » Unstoppable Rea doubles up in Thailand


Do not get me wrong... I rate Rea but what is disturbing is the dudes on here writing off Tom Sykes as if he only won because he was on a Playstation... I mean these people on here use popularity and mistake it for talent... 4 years ago it was all love for Tom Sykes now all of a sudden he has no talent even though he was the one fighting for and winning (2013) the title in the last 3 years!!!????? The fact that you no longer like him does not mean he is not a top rider with talent so please stop all the BS...you all sound like little kids... Please remember that Kawasaki was not always the best bike and look what he achieved after 20 years of nothingness for Kawasaki!! Again GO Johnny...I am happy for you! but tell these disillusioned fan boys to chillax!!

WSBK » Unstoppable Rea doubles up in Thailand


Mysticmeg: Tutt tut ! Joeski, those guys would school rea at nothing, reas way better, people tend to under estimate the x moto champs bike talent. In all the classes hes run in ,he won in very quickly, and hes destroyed all his team mates at honda, aoyama last 250 gp champ, rea made him look stupid when team mates,by 1 /2 seconds every lap, and it looks like hes going to do the same to the other kawasaki riders, its a sign of talent,give him the proper tools,and he will use them better. Be would destroy those guys in moto 2 all day long
Two different opinions which is fine...I believe he would eventually come good and do much better than Cal but I believe he would have a harder time initially than those moto2 boys if on the same equipment mostly due to lack of GP experience and different tracks etc...I do not think it would be because of talent. Just an opinion

MotoGP » ‘The GP15 is a real Ducati’


GiGi is hired and paid by Ducati and therefore every work he does and ideas he now comes up with hence forth as I am certain was signed into documents are intellectual property of subsidiary company Ducati owned by VW. Hence the Ducati ideas and products henceforth developed by GiGi are Ducati products owned by VW. If I were to buy Ducati and claim ownership but never change the technical staff (or change the lead engineer to another better qualified Italian engineer)...or never change the way they conducted operations or never move their base of operation...would it still be a Ducati???? would it still be an Italian bike? or American? IMHO the GP15 Ducati is still a ducati...this is MotoGP and technology and designs change... I do not give a crap if they had to change the desmo or V config engine...Stamp Ducati on the side of the idea made in that Italian factory and it is as it says.... They are here to win...bottomline
