MotoGP » Aoyama blasts testing rules that penalise rookies

This is one of those chicken or the egg scenario's. Which would you rather have, seat time on the bike, or track time on the tracks your going to race on? The 250 guys have all raced most of these tracks before, Spies has a teeny bit more seat time than them on the new bike, Electronics, brakes and tires. Spies is a bit of a whiz at picking up new tracks quickly so that has obviously played to his strengths thus far. They are all on new rubber(to them), they are all new to the Carbon Brakes, and Electronics so that is an equalizer. In one weeks time we will know for sure who has adapted best.

WSBK » Haslam: I want more wins now!

Leon had almost as fruitful a start last season, so that is no surprise, That he has adapted to the new Suzuki so rapidly, & gotten the Flapping knees under control in the off season is yet another. He was the only one that had anything for Biaggi over the whole race weekend at Portimao and that took some doing! Biaggi and the Aprilia are truly looking like an overdog after this weekend. Can't expect Ducati to sit by & watch this happen so I would Expect to see Haga in Full form at Valencia. The question is, will it be enough? The Aprilia & Suzuki are loaded for bear & it just might be a new day in WSBK??? Crutchlow looks good & Camier is reaping the benefits of Aprilia power.

WSBK » Toseland praises Yamaha, laments injury

This is a classic mathematical example of motorcycle racing. Bike+Rider=Results. You can seldom substitute one component for another and have an equal or superior result without also modifying or replacing the other component to re-balance the equation. Last Season Tom sykes was bashed for failing to live up to Ben's speed on equal equipment. Now James and Cal are both trying to get that same balance Ben found. And anyone foolish enough to think that Yamaha just "threw the baby out with the bathwater", (2010 R1 being the baby) get real. Yamaha builds some of the best (if not the best) road-racing machines in the world. The riders and teams are just trying to find the setup that works.
