MotoGP » Smith: I’ve got to earn a good bike for 2016


Tech 3 is supposed to be an entry team for inducting riders into the class and seeing if they can make the grade and progress to factory kit. Cal stuck around for more than 2 years, and Edwards hung on a bit too, but generally all a rider can expect there are 2 years before moving on. There's simply too much talent coming through from the smaller classes now.

MotoGP » Crutchlow 'fell at turn one, nearly landed at turn two'


A crack to the knee doesn't have to be a major injury - hairlines fractures would still allow him to move normally unless there happened to be enough swelling to restrict joint mobility. It's an injury he might feel more acutely some time after the accident though. Must have been some impact to do that kind of damage, despite knee sliders and reinforced knee pads in the leathers.

WSBK » Sykes, Baz step up feud on social media


Yikes, those tweets from Sykes are just cringeworthy. Especially the one where he taunts Baz about his championship position. I don't remember Tom excelling in his first years in WSBK. And being upset because he couldn't win the championship off the back of team orders won't exactly win many fans. Far better for TS to just suck it up and get ready to raise his game to deal with a much tougher team mate next year.

MotoGP » Redding rides ‘very different’ RC213V


Not yet totally convinced about Scott. Tall, heavy rider (ie. not your ideal build for a Honda) and super-sensitive about set-up issues, which in the past have damaged his confidence and even wrecked whole seasons for him (2012). The great quality about Redding - and what gives him an edge over the other Brits in the class IMO - is his racecraft. But I'll be interested to see how well he manages to set the Honda up to his liking this year.
