MotoGP » 2015 MotoGP rider line-up so far


cfsteezy: Aspar boot Hiroshi Aoyama and give Camier a honda. Aoyama is fast but not consistant as late. If it was my money i would secure Camier for 2015 Aspar team before he signs for a SBK team. I think camier has proven his potential and is a talent that shouldnt be passed up.
I'm a big Camier fan, but he hasn't ever proved his potential on a GP bike, he's never even ridden one, it's a completely different ball game to riding an EVO Superbike or a developing MV, although they were impressive rides. Aoyama, being Japanese, brings Honda backing with him and Honda money...Camier doesn't. Currently Aoyama is the better choice for 2015, but hopefully Camier can impress at Indy and Brno.

Jakel: I can't see Eugene Laverty getting a seat in MotoGP. He's not been too hot in WSBK. Aprilia dropped him and kept Guintoli. EL seems to have better PR than results.
Aprilia replaced Laverty with Melandri, if you believe the current whispers around the place they're starting to regret it. Furthermore E.Laverty is in talks with 3 teams in MotoGP - Suzuki, Pramac and Aprilia - he is still very good friends with the head of racing at Aprilia and they know what he is capable of in both performance and development of a bike, so don't be too surprised in E.Lav does land a GP ride for 2015.

MotoGP » 2015 MotoGP rider line-up so far


TrueFan: Although there are some good riders in Moto2, apart from Rabat (who has decided to stay another year), there are no obvious stand-out performers...some promise, some capable old hands, but no young guns.
You're kidding, right? A class rookie wins a Moto2 GP in his second event in dry conditions and THAT doesn't get classed as stand out? How about the other 2 class rookies who have taken to the podium in L.Salom and Folger? Personally I think this is the best and most impressive year for 'young guns' in Moto2.

WSBK » Tom Sykes top at Portimao WSBK test


Since the start of the 2004 season there have been 183 MotoGP races, of those only 3 have been won by riders to have come throught the WSB paddock - Bayliss, Vermuelen and Spies. Also since the start of '08 there have been only 7 grand prix winners, just 5 of them have won more than once in that time. The numbers say stay in SBK Sykes!

WSBK » Tom Sykes top at Portimao WSBK test


Garry: I'm an avid bike fan wsbk is the place to watch a great competition . Motogp is in a sorry state there are only going to be 1 of 4 winners, Sykes would be insane to go to motogp. Unless he can get a works yam or honda, that would never happen.
I should have elborated more on my statement. When I said he wouldn't be able to cut it I meant for the reasons @Garry has mentioned, in that he wouldn't be able to get his hands on a competitive machine.
