WSBK » Haslam already lapping faster on Aprilia than Honda


Truthfully, it is not just the fact that he is faster that I am impressed with because let us be honest the Aprilia was one of the top bikes of 2014 and faster than all...period. What is drawing my attention to Leon is that he is doing the faster time on the supposed "EVO" or modified "EVO" spec bike, known to have less electronics and power(?) and topping his own times on the Honda superbike in less than 2 days!!!....focusing on the fact that he is also doing this on a new (to him) bike compared to a bike that he was on for almost 2 years....minus all his injury time!!!! I think that speaks volume to his potential and the ability that many believed he somehow lost. I had hope the Honda would suit him but he is not Johnny Rea and neither was anyone else!!! He was good on the Suzuki and OK on the BMW...I hope the Aprilia brings him back to his 2010 status!!!

WSBK » de Puniet getting up to speed on Suzuki


jlav: don't expect to see him up front as this is a second rate team with a rider well known as a crasher.
Glass half full? or half empty? You seem to be the latter....DePuniet is new to the class and his team is trying. Suzuki has not put forth the effort IMHO but whether you are his fan or not, the more competitive riders the better.... I simply wish him well as I do for all the others participating in my favorite sport.... but not you...hey..its cool...opinions are like a**holes, everybody has one..... and you are certainly free to splurt your crap when you feel like!! Please do not take offense...it's just, I get tired of the bad fortune-telling from so called fans of the sport!

WSBK » de Puniet getting up to speed on Suzuki


Second rate team? not bad...race winners and multiple podiums in 3 years.. Riders like Laverty and BSB champion Lowes and Camier all rode/riding for this team... seems like a top growing team IMHO!! but that is just an opinion! If Suzuki gets its thumb out and give them a base bike to work with, they will be very good.... PS you do realize that they are not even a factory team right? All tuning is done in house...I think Yoshimura only supply/builds the engines but the team tunes them... I personally do not like how Denning conducts business but the team is good and improving.... I wish them well....hope Suzuki steps up their ivolvement as I also wish Honda steps up theirs with Pata Honda!!

WSBK » Haslam already lapping faster on Aprilia than Honda


JedPB67:
RyanJG: Leon has already proven in one day of testing that Guinters won't be retaining his world title next year.
A bit early to imply that Haslam is going to win the championship. If you base your predictions on testing .....
Easy killer..u read too far into the statement....Leon proved how crappy the Honda is/was by lapping faster on an "EVO" Aprilia than on the Honda SBK. Does not bode well for Guintoli on a Honda aiming to retain the title was the point NOT that Leon will win the title... that was never mentioned.... just the bench mark of how much Haslam improved having left the Honda and the question of how much Guintoli will underperform having left the Aprilia... PS faster in 2 days than he ever was in 2 days on Honda on a close to EVO spec....

MotoGP » Deficit to top 'unacceptable' says Redding


@Nate44 Based on the article, he expected more as well. I do not see the excuses you mentioned...at least not here, he admitted to being off and underperforming and also that he could not figure out why, just that he was not able to use the power so while he was comfortable on the bike (minus a few needed changes for his height and weight) he was not able to use the bike to its full potential... I was a little disappointed too as I expected more. Especially since Petrucci jumped off a crap bike and hopped onto a better one and was straight away impressive... I expected this from Redding as well and I think he expected that too! With that said the fact that he was faster on his slow OPEN bike definitely points to a technical issue i.e. set up, which most likely in large part stems from an inexperienced team also. He has the ability, now he and team need to learn how to use that tool...

MotoGP » Valencia MotoGP test times - Wednesday (Final)


Agreed with Realist... if we are going to bag on Suzuki in 10th then what about everyone else behind them???? The bike is new and had major reliability over the race weekend. The engine was detuned for DePuniet to ensure reliability so IF Aleix is running the same detuned engine he is doing great...no seamless, low power, and Aleix already stated they have aerodynamic problems probably because of his height but Suzuki will work on this!! In all, this is a good start for them with a lot of issues and development yet to iron out. Petrucci is also impressing me a bit...I understand that this is merely testing and pushing for the fastest time was not a priority but it is interesting nonetheless to see Danilo in 7th ahead of Crutchlow and Redding who are on supposedly better equipment. With that said he could have used the soft tyre not available to Crutchlow and Redding...but Redding is seeing that the factory Honda is not an automatic top 6...it still has to be ridden and his team have a

MotoGP » Rossi gives thumbs-up to new chassis, swing-arm


Rossi will always be my rider... I respect all these guys but once he leaves MotoGP will continue but a big part will be missing!! I am hoping for a 10th title and he has all my support and belief.... however, I will not come on here and argue and put other riders down and talk smack when I know stuff happens and the biggest example of that was JL in 2014!! Look at how he ended 2013, I would even argue the possibility of a 2013 title for JL had he not incurred the injury... I was for sure that Marc would have a hard time taking the title again but alas...history shows how it started for arguably the fastest rider of 2013 who slowed up the whole field to implement strategy in Valencia last year... no one could challenge him in Valencia last year..also DP at the end of 2012 was fantastic and look how 2013 ended for him... Anyway...I expect Rossi to be good next year...I am really hoping for a title challenge...

MotoGP » Melandri: We know we are late…


Please do not tell me Aprilia is was testing using the ART in CRT etc blah blah blah... Aprilia gave some parts to some teams that wanted to race they barely got the support but they did get a lot of promises. With that said in retrospect Aprilia could have been much further if they took the ART project more seriously. They could have had more data and more riders gunning for their seats but it seems MotoGP was a later thought, thinking they would follow Kawasaki and just do WSBK, once they realize that the WSBK crowds were dwindling and that MotoGP was regaining dominance in promotion and viewership with DORNA's plan...now MotoGP became a priority particularly since they can now check the TITLE blocks in WSBK!!!

MotoGP » Melandri: We know we are late…


I think Marco's position will be dependent on his performance next year particularly in reference to Alvaro.... he looks a little tentative right now but Marco is a big rolling rock..."slightly slow to go but when he goes he gets rolling" I think Aprilia will still look to replace only 1 guy for 2016 and it might depend on who is the star or not so star performer. They will snag up a young upcomer. Rins? Tito? Hell if Smith loses his Tech 3 they may draw for him or if he does well/ok he may opt to go since there is really no movement in Yamaha for him...with Pol getting the preference of any possible factory seat. Or if Cal keeps it up he may be on his 4th bike in 4 years...lol just a little jab there.... I say this because 2016, Aprilia will still be so young and need that rider experience/input for development...Suzuki has been testing/experimenting for 3 years..Aprilia just barely made up their minds 3 months ago....

MotoGP » Valencia MotoGP test times - Wednesday (Final)


Supermario: The result looks like 2015 season will be same as 2014 with Honda and Yamaha dominate whole season. It's a little bit disappointed for Ducati for being still behind both Japanese Bikes.
It's OK man...the factory Ducati's are not at the remainder of the test. Danilo is on the Pramac (older model) and he is top 7...Ducati did not have their 2015 machine ready (which we all knew since they announced it) so not a fair comparison at this moment... anyway, I have always expect 2016 to be the year Ducati mounts a title challenge since 2015 will be a whole new design by GiGi (I expect a win or two) but they will have to work out the issues with that model first as well..
