BSB » Kiyonari expresses shock at Japan tragedy


Every news item i watch and every report i read about what's happened in Japan make's me feel so sad at the amount of people that lost their lives and those who survived but have lost everything.If there's one country that can pull together and rebuild itself quickly then it's Japan.It's a terrible situation caused by an act of nature.That kind of makes you think about all the man made bullsh1t going on in the world caused by greed and ego and just how pointless it all is.

WSBK » Toseland hampered by lack of testing


If Toseland doesn't improve this season then i will agree with people by saying he's finished,that ain't going to happen though.This team was put together from scratch a few short months ago by which time most other teams had already begun testing and JT and his team mate lost a great deal of track time.When they did get the chance to test it was in mostly poor weather conditions.Toseland isn't the sort of rider to just ride around making up the numbers.Once he gets this bike sorted he will be somewhere up the front end of the field.

WSBK » Portimao - Combined times


I don't think Toseland is left to make up the numbers,he's in a new team that was only put together a couple of months ago and have had hardly any testing time at all compared to the other teams.Once he and the team get the bike sorted i think he will be fighting for the podium as the season goes on.Haslam did an 80 hour test on his BMW recently,Toseland has done a few days mostly in wet conditions and that's pretty much it.If the bike is any good then Toseland is more than able to stick it on the podium.

MotoGP » 'King' Kenny Roberts back on track in the UK


You're wrong by suggesting Crosby was brought into the British team in 1984 because the caliber of rider on offer to that team that year was not up to the job,what about Haslam,Sheene,McElnea,Marshall and Wayne Gradner to name a few ? And Gary Lingham was a better rider than his bikes would allow him to prove.Thats the part were i think you are wrong.The one area you are right about is the fact that the British team never had the machinery to match the US team in 84.And yes only in 1984 did the British team have riders from overseas as far as i can remember,Gardner and Crosby who both made their names and careers by riding in Britain before hand,nothing wrong with that either because both were fantastic riders and we loved watching them race and still hold them both in very high regard.Croz decided to race again in Britain for the last time before he retired for good and raced at a couple of BSB meetings that year and because of this he was invited to take part in the match races.

MotoGP » 'King' Kenny Roberts back on track in the UK


"Graham Crosby was drafted into the UK team because not enough Brits of the caliber needed AND with suitable machinery were available".Posted by The Truth WRONG !! The Transatlantic Trophy series was the common wealth v USA,Crosby was allowed to race as New Zealand is ruled by the British monarchy and therefore part of the common wealth.He only raced the Transatlantic series in 1984 if i remember correctly 2 years after retiring from international racing and this was just for fun and not a serious comeback by him,trouble was he was on a bag of sh1te 4 stroke at the time which wasn't competative.The top 5 yanks were all onboard factory 500s and Haslam was our only rider on a factory bike and he gave the yanks a bloody good run for their money,Sheene was on Mamola's year old Suzuki and still having trouble with it and all the other Brits were on production bikes.

MotoGP » PIC: Valentino Rossi’s first Ducati revealed


Any hint of yellow on that bike looks pretty naff to me,Nicky's bike looks better.Yellow number boards and black numbers would look better on it and on all of the bikes too if i'm honest,watching video of the old 500s the other day you could see the numbers so easily compared to now.Things change for whatever reasons but not always for the better.I wonder if for the Italian GP they wheel out either a pure yellow Duke for Rossi or a silver one (think Paul Smart back in the early 70s Imola 200 ).Either way it's going to be a bit odd seeing Vale on a Ducati for the first couple of races in what ever colour they paint it.

MotoGP » Fiat, Yamaha partnership officially over


Fiat leaving behind Yamaha,like we didn't see that was gonna happen several months ago ! Bound to be some sort of big sponsorship deal coming from Spain at some point,they have a world champ in the top class and Spain dominate the GP scene in one way or other,a company from his home country is bound to jump in and offer support now he's number one i would think.

MotoGP » Sheene and Hunt – When Playboys Ruled the World


"Poor old Pomgolians, having to resort to 30 something year old video for some national pride. Sigh..." Bob,Sheene was a one off in the world of motorcycle racing,never before had anyone in the sport used the media in such a way to promote motorcycle racing which largely overlooked the sport.Formula 1 was shown live on TV pretty much every race,motorcycling wasn't.It was only by accident the 79 500cc British GP was shown live in the first place and its still talked about today as one of the greatest races ever.Without a guy like Sheene bike racing would still be largely overlooked by TV companies.National pride? The whole world of motorcycle racing owes Barry Sheene a great deal for what he did for the sport not to mention the safety aspect,he invented the back protector amongst other things.Rossi is the main man now and in terms in terms of personality he will always be second to Sheene in that respect.Britain may not have produced another Sheene but then neither has anyone else.
