MotoGP » Restarted race ‘toughest of year’ for Kent

ElbowDown93: it's annoying when these guys keep on 'complimenting' Kent every single session
Well it's hard not to be complimentary when he leads practically every session! What should they do, ignore the fastest, most consistent guy in the championship? Beefs about commentary aside, I think Kent will have a point to prove at Silverstone. He really does need to reassert his authority on track, so I hope this time that the team give him the tools to do the job.

MotoGP » Moto3: Antonelli claims first win in shortened race

Challenger: Two races in a row that Leopard have ballsed up!
Quite right. The team are doing everything to lose Kent his championship lead. According to Kent himself, he requested a new soft tyre for the restart but was overruled. "The main problem today was the restart, in which we asked for a new soft tyre but didn't get it. So we had to run again with the used medium and lost too much in acceleration. Brno is a track that has a lot of hard acceleration points, especially the last uphill part. I was on the limit throughout the race but there were too many sections where I was overtaken and that's because I was having scary moments with a slipping rear wheel." Leopard really start listening to their rider and helping him win instead of throwing a spanner in the works. No wonder he's thinking of getting out and going to Pramac.

MotoGP » Bradley Smith signs Tech 3 deal

Tomco: And none of the knowitalls have come up with one serious suggestion of who could do better than BS on the Yamaha Tech3.
Well Yamaha thought they'd come up with one: Alex Rins. Smith's place was reportedly offered to Rins no less than 3 times over the summer break, so we might say that that #38 is fortunate that Rins declined, preferring to stay in Moto2 for a title challenge first. This time next year, however, I'd expect to see that move take place, hence the 1-yr-only extension for Smith. None of this is to discredit the job BS is doing on the Tech 3, but it's doubtful he figures in any of Yamaha's longer term plans.

MotoGP » LCR talks Castrol, Crutchlow, 2016...

Lodge: Would't be too difficult for him to do to Crutch what he did to Sykes over a season.
It would be next to impossible. A career superbike guy couldn't be expected to come in and overhaul a quick MotoGP rider with 5 years' experience in under one season. It's not realistic. Rea is a great rider though. He's got the makings of a multiple champion in the World Superbike series. But as far as MotoGP goes - no, that ship has already sailed. Too loyal to the wrong people for too long, unfortunately.

MotoGP » Crutchlow: We need more testing

Not forgetting in all of this that Bartholemy is also Redding's own personal manager. And being the diligent businessman that he is, I'm sure he will seek to place Scott where the long-term financial compensation is healthiest. Any good manager would do the same. And if there's a competitive motorcycle to be had into the bargain, then so much the better!

MotoGP » Crutchlow: We need more testing

MattyMKO745: Interesting is that Scott is in advanced talks with Pramac.. A lot will be known come Silverstone.. Deal could happen, considering how keen Ducati are to get him..
Except that Danny Kent apparently has a 3-yr deal on the table from Pramac. And Petrucci is said to be staying. The problem (and the fun thing) with Speedweek is that they tend to report every rumour and whisper doing the rounds, which means much of their reporting is based on conjecture rather than fact. All makes for an interesting silly season though.
