WSBK » 2014 WSBK rule changes, EVO class announced


It might make the grids bigger but the factory teams and top riders will be looking even more to quit WSBK and move to MotoGP. J.Rea and Melandri are just 2 of the names trying to make the switch before WSBK becomes a glorified production class, while up and coming riders like Sam Lowes are now likely to skip World Superbikes altogether and move straight to Moto2. Seems to me that dis-incentivising factory teams from competing, and drawing top riders away from the championship is all to the greater benefit of MotoGP rather than WSBK.

MotoGP » Crutchlow eyeing podium, talks Indy circuit changes


I'm surprised that Yamaha have upgraded Cal with the same fuel tank and seat unit that the works bikes have. Apart from the slightly different swing arm and electronics it's very nearly full works spec now (at least until the seamless shift arrives). Once he'd signed for Ducati I didn't expect to see him get the upgrades. I guess it shows how keen Yamaha are to try and hold back the Hondas in the second half of the season.
