WSBK » Superstock class to be phased out?


For me, I don't care what the absolute speed of the bike is, any current production 1000 cc sports bike is plenty fast enough to go racing. I just want to see good grid numbers and the best riders. FI and MotoGP have shown us that the more cutting edge and sophisticated a machine becomes, the more they depend on the men with laptops in the pits and the less they depend on the skill and courage of the pilot. Anything which makes the machines cheaper and less complicated seems like a step in the right direction to me so I'm not against these proposals.

MotoGP » Ben Spies: The moment I decided to leave Yamaha


I really don't know why Ben is trying to stay in MotoGP, there is no racing, the pits are snobby, the grid is empty, only 2 riders have any chance of winning and the politics are horrendous. I'm sure he's made enough to retire so should have gone back to WSBK where there is a bit of passing and a rider can make the difference. I want him to do well, but on a Ducati? Dream on.

MotoGP » Valentino Rossi: Good feeling, bad weather...


If he comes around fourth in testing that'll be fine. He was rarely the fastest rider out there, but was always the most scrappy. As long as he is somewhere in touch with the leaders, there should be some fun! The danger is that he has huge target on his back for Dovi, if Dovi gets ahead of him in testing or racing Rossi's confidence will blow away in the breeze.

MotoGP » MotoGP riders respond to Marquez deal


"he wins difficult races when he is not the fastest on track" - yes, but he is one of the lightest which means that he can almost always out accelerate heavier riders. Having said that, I do think he is the great talent in Moto2 and deserves this ride. It will be interesting to see what the primary school bully gets when he comes up against the high school tough guys!
