MotoGP » Pedrosa out of Assen, Aoyama in at Repsol Honda

The race in Assen is always on Saturday because of tradition. The early TT races were also held on Saturdays because back then the authorities wouldn't allow any sort of motor activities on Sundays due to religious reasons. And since then it has just stayed that way even though religion has nothing to do with it anymore. I think it's pretty cool, a reminder of why this is the track with the most history on the calendar.

WSBK » Honda suffers pointless weekend

I do not think the blame lies entirely with Ten Kate. They have a long service record with Hondas and managed to make every bike competitive. Look at BMW, their bike is winning almost every domestic championship yet in SBK they can barely get a top 10 at the moment. To me it seems clear SBK is just incredibly competitive at the moment. You've got the big teams from Aprillia, Yamaha and Ducati, and then Kawasaki is getting up to speed with the new bike as well. With all that competition it's no wonder a few teams are falling back.
