WSBK » Hopkins defies the odds for WSBK pole

Any rider that can make a comeback like this, is a hero. If you don't like Hopper then you are a mug, and you cannot call yourself a fan of motorcycle racing. I couldn't care less if he is from the USA or Timbuktu, so long as he keeps riding like this then he has my vote. As for Suzuki, if they are thinking of sending Hopper to MotoGP, then they better repay his loyalty with a bike that can win.

WSBK » de Puniet considering WSBK switch?

1/ WSBK is a world series - MotoGP is a spanish series with a couple of USA races and a few odd tracks here and there 2/ There are only 6 bikes in MotoGP that can win, 2 Yamahas and 4 Hondas, next year it looks like there will be only 4 3/ If you are good enough you can fight for the podium in WSBK. Doesn't matter how good you are in MotoGP you will be fighting for scraps.

MotoGP » Stoner: Too early for title talk

Rossi rides as fast as is needed to safely secure the championship never anything more. His last corner passes, like the one on Sete, were never a 'fight to the finish', just the show. Rossi always said as much in his post race interviews. 'I did ...... and then I push ....." The only time I can recall where he went outside his safety zone was at Phillip Island in 2009. Stoner was no threat so why was Rossi riding his nuts off to try to beat Stoner? Because Stoner had beaten Rossi at the holiest of holies, Mugello, Rossi's track, Stoner knew it, Rossi knew it, and it was payback time. Did Rossi tell the press, no way, he plays the press like a fiddle. They were still dribbling about Laguna 2008 which was a nothing event. Those days are gone. If Rossi wants to join the boys at the front, it is a whole new ballgame. To quote Rossi "For me, first now Dani, but especially Stoner and Lorenzo, are faster than us, and faster than me, are in better shape, and they ride in a better way." Tha

MotoGP » Stoner: Lorenzo, Pedrosa are faster

"Rossi won the championship his first year on a Yamaha, which was known as the dog of the paddock. " Oh! too funny. Rossi's 2004 "dog of the paddock" featured a completely new engine design. This is when Yamaha introduced the now famous crossplane big bang configuration. It was a rocket out of the box, and Rossi posted the fastest time in pre season testing at Catalunya. Please try to at least post something that resembles reality.

MotoGP » Stoner: Lorenzo, Pedrosa are faster

@ Lctanner "This afternoon we were just a one lap wonder." Casey Stoner not happy with his race pace. Struggling to make hard tyre work. From Matt Birt on twitter Hmmm now where have i heard that before !!!!!!!!! You have heard it in the title of this thread. That is what Stoner is saying, that he cannot run low times and that he put in a desperate at the end. Is English not your first language, or is it just too difficult to understand when he says "Then on the next soft tyre we had one lap to find some pace and we managed front row". Perhaps it is an insulting innuendo and you are trying to imply that he is a one lap wonder historically. Since you are a Rossi fan let me ask you a question. If Stoner is a one lap wonder, yet head to head against Rossi since 2006 to current the score is Stoner 46 and Rossi 41, what does that make Rossi?
