WSBK » Toseland predicts British rout at Silverstone


If JT lowered himself to teach piano I doubt you could afford the lessons or would put enough effort into the instrument to make it worth his while! Likewise if he gave out riding lessons you would learn so much that you would probably forget much more than you remembered. It's all well and good to sit on your couch and criticize riders who are so good that it takes a few other exceptional riders to show them up, I bet you couldn't finish within 15 seconds of him in a 3 lap race, I know I couldn't. He was a deserved champ both times he took the WSBK crown, a pity he didn't adapt well to Moto GP

WSBK » Xaus ‘positive’ despite fall from third


@Greg I agree that they could have made a better selection than Xaus, but if not for Corser the bike would still be much harder to ride competitively than it is, Corser has spent a lot of time working on getting the settings as good as they currently are. Guys like Rea inherited a bike that has been ridden in this competition since 2004, with all the data that has been collected since then it's not that surprising that the hondas finish stronger than the BMWs do, in fact given how little time BMW have spent on the track (not much since the early 70's or maybe even earlier) they are doing extremely well.

MotoGP » Ben Spies celebrates first MotoGP podium


I agree that Ben isn't the most animated rider during post race interviews, but I like to think of that as being the most underrated of emotions not usually experienced by Americans ie humility, he has it, he knows it, he doesn't feel the need to get in everyone's face with it...NICE and very refreshing, no matter where you hail from, I was impressed with this quality of his last year (we Kiwis don't get AMA Superbikes televised, sadly, so he was relatively new to me last year, except for his wild card rides...) and I am still impressed with his manners this year, much better than george's Rossi wannabe hype...so fake!! yes celebrate by all means but keep it real! Ben will make his mark here

WSBK » ten Kate: We have a dream line-up


I would have thought that had they signed Vermeullen they would have had a stronger line up than this, he almost took the title in his first year of superbikes, was just plagued by some very bad luck at the end of the season and he almost took the title the year Corser won it with Suzuki. I just don't understand why he went to MotoGP with Suzuki when they were never going to win a title or even come close to properly contesting for it, then he signs with Kawasaki for superbikes when they don't have a bike that's up to the challenge either, he should sack his management team, and he should have returned with Ducati last year when Tardozzi wanted to sign him, their bike is competitive...

MotoGP » Rossi: I was ready and waiting.


Cont'd Ago's 1973 title came from the untimely demise of Kim Newcome, see "Love, loss and speed", due to the cost of a few hay bales being denied by a stiff necked Silverstone official - too taller price to pay. Rossi has managed to take his low times on the chin and come back fighting, no one has done this since Doohan, and maybe had his injuries not been so bad, he would have returned. Love him or hate him you have to look at all Rossi has achieved in MotoGP so far and realise, as people (hopefully)did in Hailwood's day(s), that we are lucky to live in an age when a great graces our favourite stage. Stop focusing on his demise and enjoy the now, it won't happen for a long, long time...

MotoGP » Rossi: I was ready and waiting.


Rossi left Honda because they would not pay him what he thought he was worth, this is after winning the last 500 crown and the first 2 4stroke crowns. At this stage Honda were of the opinion that it was the bike, not the rider that had triumphed. Rossi then humbled Honda by being the first rider to win back to back GPs on 2 different brands (as highlighted by previous posters). From here Vale has rewritten motorcycle Grand Prix history and love him or hate him he has proven by results - the ultimate B.S. detector - that He IS THE MAN and you can't argue with facts! Ago didn't face such quality opposition, if he had he would have won maybe half of the GPs he did.
