WSBK » Pegram: Canepa at EBR is going to be a big help


Which American kit does Buell use only? They weren't shy about using Rotax engines in the 1125. And anyway, I'm sure Erik would prefer to race something he had built rather than buying a bike from someone else and building a team around that. That's not what he's there for. Any SBK races I've seen had EBR bikes out of the race in the very early stages with mechanical issues. It's a new team, a small team. Buell isn't yet a "factory" I don't believe. They're very much close to a privateer. They've only just started selling a bike that doesn't cost $40,000US.

MotoGP » MotoGP Star of the Year vote: 3rd


@Joeski, well I suppose as far as tires go, the open advantage was a double edged sword. It let you qualify well but the supersoft wouldn't hold up in a race, so all Ducati had left for the race was the extra fuel. Correct me if I'm wrong as I don't know whether they ran a supersoft in the race often. And in GP, qualifying isn't as important as it is, say, in F1. Hard to maintain track position if you're not fast enough, unlike in F1 where you can make your car very wide and hard to pass. As for comparisons to Rossi, Dovi did finish with more points and one position higher than Rossi in his second season on the Duc. To compare so well to the GOAT has to be a merit of its own.

MotoGP » MotoGP Star of the Year vote: 2nd


Lots of confused responses on here. Even Crash says this listing doesn't necessarily follow the championship results. IE: finishing 1st doesn't guarantee being 1st on this list, for the slower among us. And this is a popularity contest, and Vale seems to be more popular, or have a larger contingent on this site. It isn't a scientific poll. Go accept these facts and move on. And for people citing numbers like wins, poles, etc, you should also consider Rossi's age, his trouncing of his teammate, and the problematic seasons he's had. Even MM said he hopes he can emulate him when he's at this stage of his career. Competing against people 10 years younger in a very physically demanding sport isn't easy.
