RR » Wayne Gardner demands immediate TT ban

I have nothing but the utmost respect for people who participate in "real" road races like the Isle of Man. I think it's refreshing to see a venue where people can freely use their own judgment when it comes to deciding whether or not to participate in a dangerous activity. The whole world is rapidly becoming a nanny state where we are presumed to be child-like idiots who are incapable of thinking for ourselves. If your going to ban the I.O.M. then you should ban BASE jumping and other extreme sports. Using that logic you can also ban people driving on the old 'Ring because a few people get killed every year. I hope the I.O.M. continues for many years to come.

F1 » Schumacher blames media for Monaco 2006 furore

Ducx , I have to disagree with you when you said all the great champions did stuff like that. Intentionally running people off the road may have started with people like Senna , but that doesn't make it right. Champions from the era before Senna , Prost etc. didn't do it. Schumacher's intentional "crash" at Monaco would have gotten anyone else banned from the race. The FIA (Ferrari's Invisible Ally) played favorites. Dirty driving as exhibited by people like Senna and Schumacher will always mar their accomplishments.

F1 » Windsor confident of luring 'future champion' Busch to USF1

As an American , I'd like to see the team get a car to the grid next year even if it's at the back. There are some very promising young American drivers that could be paired with someone with F1 experience. Kyle Busch would be my last choice as a driver (Danica Patrick and Marco Andretti are also 2 drivers I wouldn't pick). He may be a gifted and "natural" driver but he's an oval track racer. There's no way in hell he would succeed in F1. As someone else pointed out, why would he leave his multi-million dollar NASCAR team for the back of the grid?

MotoGP » Doctors identify Stoner illness?

I want to see all of you macho, man-it-up types ride a GP bike competitively with even "mild" anemia. "Anemia goes undetected in many people, and symptoms can be small and vague. The signs and symptoms can be related to the anaemia itself, or the underlying cause. Most commonly, people with anemia report non-specific symptoms of a feeling of weakness, or fatigue, general malaise and sometimes poor concentration. They may also report shortness of breath, dyspnea, on exertion."

WSBK » Spies: I know what I want to do next year

I saw an interview with Colin Edwards on Speed Channel on Sunday. He said that his Yamaha is " 92% to 95% " of the Fiat Yamaha bikes. In other words , it's not all that competitive. I can't see Ben moving to Moto GP for a second-class ride. Edwards also mentioned that along with no chance for a good factory ride , the fact that Rossi , Stoner , Lorenzo , and Mini-Me are at the top of their game might make Ben think one more year in WSBK is not such a bad idea.
