WSBK » Melandri: Win in race two is fair compensation

I wished Melandri had both wins on the record book because he earned it...however I also see the team perspective.... BUT all this after huge claims from Aprilia that they would never impose team orders except to not take each other out... Melandri gave Guintoli race 1... And they still wanted him to give up race 2 as well?.... I have an issue with this because Guintoli needs to earn his title.... I have much respect for Guintoli but could never find honor or respect in a "gifted". Title.... Please note that I have much respect for Nicky Hayden's title because he was not given it...regardless of how low his win ratio was. He was much like Guintoli....consistent all year...only a couple wins but EARNED his title even after his teammate knocked him off.........

WSBK » Guintoli: This is a gamble…

He gave up race 1.. When he clearly dominated.... I understand when a teammate is holding up his partner and does not have the pace to win but is fighting...and IF his teammate is fighting for the title..... Back have no chance of the title but have no chance of the current race win and are just making it difficult for your teammate to move forward... That is a whole different story but to tell the faster team member to slow down and let him pass...does not sit well with me.... Again most people do not respect Nicky Hayden's title in 2006 but you know what!!!!! It was never gifted and he won it through consistency even after his teammate took him out in the penultimate round.... This is what Guintoli needed to do..fact is he just has not done enough to take the title... If Aprilia had made this team order thing clear from the start maybe we would not be disputing this. After Jerez..Aprilia should have made this public or at least sit down with Marco and told hi

WSBK » Melandri: Win in race two is fair compensation

Personally I think Guintoli should be happy Melandri gave him race 1. These guys are here to win not play second fiddle...and after a bad first half year...Melandri needs to pony up with wins...which he seems to be doing pretty well....I would have to say he is up for the title next year...if Aprilia holds on to him... This dude needs a consistent team...he has not really have that, since his entry into world super bikes.... BMW was his first chance but we all know now their level of support was less than true factory....

WSBK » Baz plays down Kawasaki team orders call

My big question do you stand on a podium top step and celebrate a victory that was given to you? Wasn't 1 gifted race victory not enough? The truth in my opinion is that as much as I like Guintoli, he has not done enough to win the title...his consistency was not quite so consistent ( see Nicky Hayden 2006 motogp title). However, I understand the team perspective and having a rider give up 4th place is not quite the same as having them give up a race win much less 2 we can all stop comparing Baz's 4th place surrender..whoo! Baz u gave up 4th wow! I am impressed. Truth be known, if Aprilia had not taken the stance of " no team orders" I could fault Melandri but if my memory serves me right...APRILIA said " no team orders" would be imposed on their riders....

WSBK » Giugliano: I don’t understand why I’m crashing so often

Guigliano will be fine...unfortunately he needs little more time... He has not had a consistent run on the same bike...much like Davies.... The dude has been switching back and forth each year. Let's see how next year pans out for him... With that said...I would also like to see Camier on the Panigale....would be interesting but I like Ducati's current line up and continuity may be their best bet....

MotoGP » Eugene Laverty talks Aspar Honda MotoGP move

It will be interesting to see where Miller and Laverty end up next year..and even race by's hard to predict because we have seen much hype sink and become nothing but we have also seen much hype shine through...I am sure even MM die-hard fans ever believed he would pick up the world title last year.... Many said he was hype... But I believe otherwise... Jack could be the same.... MM did say moto2 doesn't really give you an idea of what to expect in MGP because the bike is totally different with the electronics and set up and tyres and carbon brakes etc.... But the experience of racing, and growing as a racer is the biggest gain... So Jack might come in a do some stupid stuff initially...because he has not improved his race craft .... But he might be ridiculously fast though....

MotoGP » Aspar makes Eugene Laverty deal official

People will always argue against the superbike road to MotoGP... A good rider will be good... the rider that can adapt will be better. Spies was a dam good rookie and won a race in his second year...barely got beat by Stoner at Valencia... but it seems now his mentality was not so strong for this paddock but he made it to a factory bike which shows he had potential! Bayliss sucked on the Ducati but came into the last race of the year after winning the WSBK title and won on a Ducati!! We all talk trash now about Cal but his last 2 years at Tech 3 were pretty dang good... anyway...Eugene will be fine and I honestly do not know what to expect yet...this is a different animal to SBKs and he will need to learn...he knows most of the tracks from his 250 days and some on SBK.. I think he will do ok in first year!!
