MotoGP » Poll: Can the Rossi/Ducati partnership work?


Partnership maybe can work but I doubt there will be much success this year. Ducati is easily 4-6 months behind the competition who aren't standing still waiting on them. I don't see them catching the moving targets of Honda or Yamaha this season. Which is rather ironic considering after they bomb the beginning of last season it was suppose to be a test year. But of course everything they tried they scrapped within a couple weeks/months and started over and now have started the season even further back than last year. It's very rare that a magic fix happens in the middle of the season.

MotoGP » Ben Spies ready to 'deliver' at Jerez


"Rawdawg Katie M Kate H8R all Americans, all Spies fans, that couldn't wait to stick their Knives into JT." @MD Zane "all Spies fans"?? Spies had NOTHING to do with JT getting the foot up his ass by some commentators. It should read "Edwards fans". It was JT who stole Colin's crew chief. I remember the article when Colin basically said there will be a wall, he will not help JT, and he's going to beat him like a rented mule. I remember all of the posts stating how Colin is acting like a baby, how JT was going to beat him like this and like that, how Colin should help JT, how Colin should apologize (yes apologize) to JT ,blah, blah, blah. Then Colin went out and whipped his ass something good and JT went pear shaped. Yeah, I guess some of you want act like it's Spies fault JT didn't get re-sign but c'mon he did crap and if any other team wanted to sign him they could have had him for a bag of chips. Get over it.

MotoGP » Ducati sold to Audi?


"Hayden (as a mid pack runner) was a strategic acquisition that helped open the North American market." @alaywa Open up?? Do you think Ducati has just started selling bikes in North America? Where do you think Ducati has been selling most of their bikes for the last upteen years? If Nicky Hayden walk down any street in the US besides his home town with "Nicky Hayden" across his forehead and across his back no one would know who he was. Why do you think Biaggi has a house in California and Rossi and the like love vactions here in the States? No one bothers them because no one knows who they are.

WSBK » 'Privateer' Rea riding on the edge


@see its not HRC see um yeah, we know that genius. Some are saying that if Ten Kate has any hope of winning a title in WSBK they need help from HRC. If you had a little historical perspective, you would know that when Rea resign with Ten Kate 2 years ago he said that he had hope to move up to MotoGP with Honda. "It's no secret that my ultimate ambition is to compete in GPs but I'll still only be 24 next season so I'm really happy to aim for the World Superbike title in 2011 and then hopefully take the next step forward after that within the Honda family."

MotoGP » Ducati sold to Audi?


MotoGP is a money pit and I can't see VAG continuing nor can I see Phillip Morris continue to foot a large chunk of the bill (but that's another story). And don't give me "increased sales" because Ducati's sales were going up long before Rossi was there and Ducati has contributed the increase in it's larger product offering. As billace already did the math, it's not like their increase were tens of thousands of bikes. This was a "prestige" or "trophy" buy. VAG wanted a motorcycle brand because BMW has bikes. But make no mistake, VAG isn't in it to LOSE money. I can easily see them pulling Ducati out of MotoGP and returning a full factory effort to WSBK. That way they can still build upon Ducati's heritage (which IS NOT in prototype racing) while not bleeding money. And I would think they would prefer to go head to head with BMW there.
