WSBK » WSS: Laverty: I've had no WSBK offers yet


I'm kind of torn on should the likes of Crutchlow/Laverty/etc give a go at Moto2. I agree it will most likely be dominated by Spanish & Italians, but how many of them will possess 600cc 4 stroke skill that Crutchlow/Laverty/etc will have. True its a big risk with it being a "new" class, but I would think these guys would be a really hot commodity for Moto2. Granted the paycheck in that new series may be a big let down and this is dissuading them. I could see a spot for Laverty opening up on Ten Kate, Checa's perhaps? Kiyo is most likely safe due to his being there at the graces of HRC. If Spies leaves to GP maybe a spot on Yamaha Italia for Crutchlow?

MotoGP » Edwards: Home advantage gone.


Why is Edwards even in MotoGP, surely he should leave. 5th in the championship is absolutely terrible, if he isn't winning the races he should just leave. That goes for everyone else, except for Rossi, Lorenzo, Stoner, and maybe Dovi and Pedrosa. Sorry, had to get a little sarcasm off my back. Truthfully, I hope we have a good race. Past experience at Laguna shows that typically the racers get spread out, with little fighting going on (minus of course last years Rossi/Stoner scuffle). This year though times are getting tighter and tighter. Tire rule or perhaps the 800cc forumla is starting to balance out between teams? Yamaha clearly are the big boys this year however. :)

WSBK » BMW back in the top ten with Xaus


Their so-so results certainly aren't due to poor rider choice, as both Xaus and Corser are racing winning WSBK riders. But in the a game such as this, where tenths of seconds separate the top 15, its just that little bit that is often missing. I really expected BMW to have picked up the pace by now, perhaps getting these guys consistently into the top 10. Hope they can so they will stick around and continue racing.

WSBK » Stigefelt hails Stiggy achievement


I am quite happy to see another outfit, especially a new one like Stiggy, come into WSBK and do well. Good on Leon, he has been doing superb this year. Hopkins needs to visit some Tibetan monk or something and get his mojo back, the guy just has bad luck. Their rider in supersport, West, not sure what's up with him, he started out fast and promising this year and has fell off the pace. But then again, everyone has fell off the pace that Laverty and Crutchlow put in, their in a world of their own in that class.

MotoGP » 'Bad day' for Elias as pressure mounts.


Yet another rider that hasn't clicked with the 800cc formula. Which is surprising as you would think he would given his small stature and similarity in build to Pedrosa. With Simoncelli taking for sure 1 seat, it will be interesting to watch DeAngelis and Elias battle for the last seat, if there will even be one at all for either. Moto2 could be calling their name and will probably be the best racing of them all next year. :)

MotoGP » Edwards tries Rossi, Lorenzo wheelbase.


Quote" hummmm..you just described all but 3 or 4 of the current riders in motogp. Not too many have won and not too many will. Posted by Pam" Bingo, everyone loves to criticize anyone that is not regularly on the podium or winning a race. MotoGP is the best of the best (the top 12-15 for the most part). But the truth is only a small handful are on the best bikes/teams and have the right combo to be at the front. If the conditions are right these guys could win at any time: Edwards, Capirossi, Vermi, Hayden, Dovi, Elias, DePuniet, JT, Melandri, all the classic mid-packer guys. But how often are the conditions perfect, not often. So does that mean we should kick these guys out of GP?
