WSBK » Canepa, Pegram form new EBR line-up

shamarone: re: "Cannepa I'm thrilled about!" don't be, that's just your desire for "superman". re: "This should really show us what the bike can do" it will be further demonstration of how powerful and all encompassing my Law of NATCORK actually is.
No, not Superman, just an actual rider that is young and hungry. Someone that knows the tracks and the "program" of WSBK. And as to your NATCORK, while I don't completely disagree, I think you are looking at things differently than some of us. Many of us are simply looking for progress, and not expecting miracles in the form of podiums. You have some decent info and perspective, but mindreading may be a stretch.

WSBK » Canepa, Pegram form new EBR line-up

locky: When you lads are finished throwing the insults about, the EBR saga deserves some analysis, but looking from our side of the fence we cannot know the true potential or true problems with the bike, its hard to imagine a company the size of Hero simply ploughing endless amounts of money to look like chumps trailing around at the back of the field. The nationalist American craving for results might blind some-but Erik Buell is a bright lad and we should hope the bike can be developed into a front runner-that said last years results were really little short of pathetic and the bike looked woefully slow. Canepa may give us a better picture of the bikes potential, but the bike actually reminds me of a bike Harley built many years ago for road racing which was quite simply far too heavy and big from the get-go to ever be developed into a winning racebike-was it called an XR1000? Some Harley buff on here can correct me-but to sum up-so far so bad-must try harder to avoid bl

WSBK » Canepa, Pegram form new EBR line-up

I never understood why May wasn't faster than Yates. Heck, on weight alone (not to mention age) he should have been at least 10 seconds ahead by mid race point. Led me to believe that the bike wasn't being pushed hard enough (by him) or that the bike was being ridden at its level by both riders, and was just a poor performer. Pegram, while I understand outperformed both of these riders, is still a poor choice in my book for a rider, but hey, maybe he'll bring something good to the team. It would be nice to see EBR rise to the points for at least half of the races. Cannepa I'm thrilled about! This should really show us what the bike can do. He may crash after a few laps pushing too hard (for what the bike can handle) but at least he will set some benchmarks. Or, as mentioned above, maybe he'll be riding right next to Larry, showing us the bike has definite low limits. I hope for the benchmarks. As to American riders, well, we have so few known good ones right now I don't think

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?
