WSBK » Sykes critical of van der Mark pass in race one

re: "The move was too agressive." I'm going to allow it. look, everybody gets 1 "freebie". now if I caught him doing that repeatedly throughout the weekend...? that would be different. tom wouldn't have even gotten the chance to say anything, VDM would've had my BOOT in his a$$ long before grinner got the words out. if it's any consolation, VDM got it wrong at the bottom of lukey in race 2 and took a digger, so maybe karma gave him what was coming to him...? that's one way of looking it for those who fancy paying attention. sleep well tom, you're objection is noted, it's now a matter of public record should mike exhibit the behaviour again.

WSBK » Sykes critical of van der Mark pass in race one

after reviewing the tape. VDM was on a flyer. he had actually set fastest lap just before that so he had his tail up. and considering PI have acknowledged the nature of Doohan and designed the outside with PLENTY of high speed runoff, I keep with my original ruling that there was no threat, there was no "undue jeopardy". they were both drag racing and testing to see who could hold throttle the longest, but at the end of the day Mike had the inside. whether he chooses to bend it in earlier or not it's his call so "racing incident". sorry Tom. (note grinner, you may just wanna work on getting your head around phillip island...? honestly, I'm baffled (and I don't baffle easy) that you don't like a classic circuit that everybody in the ASBK, WSBK, and GP paddocks seem to LOVE. that's almost like someone not liking Assen...? just sayin' bro, it's weird)

WSBK » Sykes critical of van der Mark pass in race one

re: "Kawasaki's Tom Sykes has hit out at World Superbike rookie Michael van der Mark after a pass by the Pata Honda rider left him with no option but to run off the track in race one at Phillip Island." s1's checking the replay as the initial impression of the pass was that it occurred somewhere other than T1. original thoughts though were fairplay to VDM as he did have the inside.

MotoGP » Dovizioso: GP15 ready to race in Qatar

re: "damn shame ducati haven't got a test rider of Hondas capabilities" I wouldn't sweat that. only someone "baby young" to grandprix would think that stoner's association matters. stoner playing test rider is a relatively NEW phenomena for HRC. bikes like the 213 (and the V5 211, and NSR before that) had already long been sorted by Japanese test riders (think Okada) in the controlled environment of Motegi well before they ever started employing us "round eyes". since historically they've never needed it, as far as I'm concerned, the use of Stoner for testing in the past 2 years is equally for marketing benefits. someone in Japan recognized his status a "controversial figure" and said hey, lets use that to dupe the unsuspecting masses. admittedly a very "western" approach for a Japanese company, but fairplay.

MotoGP » Ducati: GP15 decision after Qatar test

re: "But the big news is that the understeer issue that has taunted Ducati's designers for years looks to have been solved." Q: So how did they do it? re: “It's difficult to explain and also something that we understand, we learned, and I think it's better not to tell everybody!” Dall'Igna smiled" A: "trial and error". they are on they're 3rd or 4th frame.
