BSB » 2016 BSB rider line-up so far

MrDonut: She's been treated more than equally in BSB. She's got a fast bike but can't ride it. End of. Sports are segregated for a reason in most cases, the demands of riding a bike fast are more easily physically handled my men once you get towards the top levels of competition. Even with equal skill she'd still get beaten by a man just due to the sheer physicality of riding a 200hp+ bike.
Regarding your final sentence, what about Dani Pedrosa? A 5 foot 1 inch, 51 kilo man that rides a 230 plus horsepower motorcycle capable of 220mph. I don't think being a man or a woman has anything to do with it, you complete jackass. It's about skill.

BSB » Mossey relishes chance to 'keep turning heads'

Braap: For me Luke did really well last season but 2016 will show if he is a front runner who will go on to greater things or one of the middle pack BSB also-rans. He's shown intention but Alex Lowes, Cal C and Jonny Rea et al set the template for how to get on in BSB so as far as I'm concerned the pressure this year is higher than last. I think he can do it but lets see how the cards fall.
Statistically speaking Mossey's debut season was more impressive than all of the riders you mentioned. Hopefully he can keep the momentum going through this season.

MotoGP » Lorenzo ditches HJC for Shark helmets

JedPB67:Even if they had, the products Lorenzo, Pedrosa and Marquez are using are on a whole new level comapred to what is sold off the shelves.
No they are not. Maybe a few novelty things like rear spoiler for particular track but the base model, construction and protection features are the same. And if I were the helmet company, I won't discriminate any rider paying for their helmet with a different helmet than the one I'd give for free to the endorsing riders.
You really think that Jorge Lorenzo was using exactly the same £250 HJC that anyone of us could buy off the shelves? Yeah, ok then.

MotoGP » Lorenzo ditches HJC for Shark helmets

vicente bianchini: HJC helmet was not working for Jorge, so best thing to do was look for another brand. A few years back also, HJC had to remodel the chin of the helmet, because of aerodynamics, somebody remembers that?
Are you thinking of Yamaha's request to HJC at the start of 2015 when they asked them to shave 5mm off the chin bar to allow Lorenzo to get lower behind the screen?
