WSBK » 2015 WSBK rider line-up so far


Pegram? Seriously? How about Josh Hayes and Canepa, that would be better IMHO. I'm not expecting much from Team EBR, but maybe a year of testing (racing) and the new rules will bring them a little more forward. I don't think there is another direction. Hoping they fair better than last year. More decent bikes in the series is always a good thing.

WSBK » Fabrizio to return to Red Devils Aprilia?


I suppose you are right there, the internet does show more negative than positive. It's like visiting a car (make/model) forum, people only post to complain or find answers to their problems. For the record, I'm a fan of Rea, Sykes, Melandri, Guinters, well heck, just about every rider out there. I do think some have had a silver spoon compared to others, but I know you and I could be given that silver spoon and not even qualify for the race, so props to them for getting it done. So what is your view on Fabrizio?

WSBK » Fabrizio to return to Red Devils Aprilia?


cfsteezy, Not so certain I agree with you. I think it is fair to say that other riders would perform just as well as Fab, and be younger. That being said, he has shown brilliance. I find him capable but unpredictable, and has too often just pulled into the pits when things aren't going well. Also, he can be a bit wreckless, but hey, these guys race motorcycles, so they're not exactly sane to begin with. I think you'll find the major gripe with hiring "older" riders is more directed at the frustration with the series, and the riders get dinged because they are forced to ride underpowered, underfunded bikes past their designed max. I'll still take a WSBK race over MotoGP most days when I want to be surprised by the podium, and see some good racing for more than a few laps. Back to topic, Fab is fine, but I still think he is being hired due to marketing more than anything else. Should be some fireworks on that team though!

WSBK » EXCLUSIVE: Loris Baz - Q&A Interview


Looked to me as though Baz slowed pace a little, Tom wasn't within striking distance, and Baz said "Ef it." Maybe he should have just pitted and showered. That would have been a nice statement I think. Here ya go team, I'm outta here. I also don't believe that Twitter and pints are a good match. No proof of course, just a hunch. I'm not a pro racer so I'll never know, but seems like a cool job to have, so long as you pad your savings and not your garage with toys because eventually it all falls down.

MotoGP » Barbera: Kawasaki 'fooled' us over MotoGP plans


Yeah, it really is too bad, you could have been fighting for 12ths instead of 15ths. Seriously, what difference does it make? Oh, wait, I forgot, MotoGP was running 2 classes simultaneously this year. Right. You could have been fighting for a make believe podium of the "also rans". Nope, they only had the top box for that "class". So again, what difference does it make? When Ducati is a backmarker in some races what chance does your team have? Fix MotoGP!!!

MotoGP » Marquez success fuels hunger for 'more titles'


Memory lane is a very scenic street. It should be a historical site. Thank goodness we pave new roads every now and again. Now I'm going to go in the lane marked "Only 4 riders allowed". That seems like a good road for me to take, oh wait, I've been predetermined to be a backmarker. As to MM, I don't think anyone doubts his greatness, but as mentioned, the fans are suffering as we perhaps feel robbed of true dog fights and title fights by the occassional surprise. Cream rises to the top, but now and then it goes sour. Seems as though MM could ride with any one of our legends, but sans a few corners of true grit from Rossi the race is more formality. Again I question, if these riders are the top riders in world, and this series reflects that (perhaps that is only a fan's interpretation and there in lies the problem?) then shouldn't we have more competitive bikes? Let's not look to the past so much, but look to the future. If YOU were designing a series, wouldn't you want
