MotoGP » Smith to KTM means Pol’s seat safer at Tech 3

Will Martin: So Pol is in the Yamaha Junior Team (Tech3) to bring on talent for the factory team... Don't get me be my choice too, but Pol must be pissed off at not getting a look in!
I like P.Espargaro, but when you comapre what he's done to what Ben Spies did for Tech 3 after only ever competing in 4 Grand Prix before making his full time switch to GP racing. Spies scored a pole and 2 podiums in his one year there, Espargaro has a best of 1x 4th (at Le Mans) again, in his first year.

MotoGP » Ducati: MotoGP winglets here to stay

Harryx: These shovels can never be considered a safe technology on a bike. Bike racing is to close to allow such dangerous protrusions. It is in contradiction with safety.
Handle bars with brake/clutch pullers are protruding from the bike and can cause serious injury to another rider during a crash, same as exhaust, foot pegs. You reckon these should be banned, to?
I understand what you're saying, but those are necessary operational controls and equipment of the motorcycle, the wings are not. Personally I don't believe they're a safety issue, but I'd like to see them banned for the sake of cost i.e. wind tunnel testing that will inevitably follow in future years.

MotoGP » Crutchlow: Bike didn't know where it was

Oli: Cal Crutchlow with an excuse? OH MY GOD, I never saw that coming. Honest. Complete shock.
A similar thing happened to Colin Edwards a few years ago at Catalunya (I think), when he was riding for Tech3. If I remember correctly the electronis glitched and put itself into wet mode or it got lost, similar to Crutchlow, and he had the TC kicking in half way down the straight whilst bolt upright.

WSBK » Buriram - Free practice results (2)

Tomco: Wasnt sure about VDM but it would appear hes the real deal. If I were him Id be off to MotopGP next season, possibly with Tech3 if Espargaro doesnt improve.
More likely to go to Rins if P.Espargaro doesn't improve. Hard to think van der Mark used to be pottering around (in GP terms) at the back of the 125 grid on the Lambretta machine. Great to see how much he's come on.
