MotoGP » Redding: My aim is to beat Crutchlow


JedPB67:Do you remeber last season when he said he wanted to challenge Hayden? Well of the 10 races they both finished Redding won out over Hayden 5 times,
Hard facts huh? Conveniently left out the whole Hayden out for most of season and returns from surgery in less than top physical conditions and Hayden still beat him once or twice after that..... Look... Redding did good in his rookie year...do not spoil it by comparing him to an injured rider who was out or riding injured all of the year... it kind of takes away from his accomplishment...because personally "IF" Hayden was fit...Redding would not have beat him...my opinion but a valid one nonetheless since Hayden was in fact injured and out for many races and rode in less than top physical condition. But if that was the target...then he won I guess.....he beat an injured Hayden..... Marquez is next I guess...oh wait...I mean Cal...lets hope he gets injured too so Scott can win

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..

Beard9X "If open rule was really helping others, then Honda would be the first to exploit it." WELLLL...not true...Ducati was willing to surrender their proprietary software for all open bikes to access..... Honda was not...period!!! so even if they knew about the choice which apparently they were not even considering as possible...they simply would not give up their R&D to the competitor!! A sacrifice GiGi was willing to make....in the end the protest of Honda etc made a better situation for GiGi as Ducati did not have to surrender their proprietary software but still kept all their open advantages...not sure what good it was putting in a factory option for OPEN because in 2016 all rules change anyway regarding software and they (Ducati) have all the concessions of open but with better software..why not allow everyone to have it whether they can use it or not?..

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...

WSBK » Lowes leads British 1-2-3-4 as test begins


Would love to see Haslam up there again....Certainly the Honda was not the bike to win on....although Johnny was good/ok on it.. " It seems he lost something that is very hard to regain." Yea...a good bike...granted he should have won a few on the BMW but he was the first to put it on the podium and Rea or Melandri...whomever you blame did take him out of that win at Donington...... Hopefully he shows well on the Aprilia...looks good so far and he has not been this high up since his Suzuki and BMW days

PS... I think the Ducati looks dang good...The face did not change much or the intake but the rest looks like a big improvement...I noticed it right away...some are fooled by the exact same paint scheme...and cannot rally see the difference.... I will say though...maybe a cheeky stab at GiGi but that tail section (minus the exhaust) sure does look a tad bit reminiscent of the Aprilia....short and pointy!! Would love to know what that duct on the left side cools...a turbo charger maybe??? hehehe
