MotoGP » EXCLUSIVE: Wilco Zeelenberg - Q&A

It's interesting that he justifies MotoGP electronics development by the fact that they are now appearing on the latest R1, I mean how far from reality can you be? The R1 is a lovely toy but is specifically designed for the track - it's crippling to ride, will cost you more than a decent car and will be difficult to keep below any speed limit. More and more bikers are turning away from these rather ridiculous playthings and I've just sold my 1000cc sports bike because I was tired of aching wrists, endlessly unintentionally breaking the speed limit, expensive consumables and worse fuel consumption than my car. They forget to mention that as modern bikes get more 'sexy' and sophisticated they also become stupidly expensive.

BSB » Michael Rutter joins Gearlink Kawasaki for Brands Hatch

I'm a big fan of Gearlink, they're the kind of team that keep racing going. I'm thinking that this could be a good move because we know that the Kawa can be fast but hasn't shone in their hands so far and hopefully the experience and input from Michael Rutter will get the machine further up the grid. I always enjoy it when Gearlink do well anyway because you then have the added spectacle of watching Norma do her nut at the finish line!

MotoGP » Jerez II Moto2 test times - Thursday/Combined

Man, it's such a shame it rained. As it stands these times don't really mean much, Sam's time shows intent though and backs up his strong off season performance so as far as I'm concerned he's got to be a contender. I really like the way Sam goes about his racing, totally focussed and never settling for anything. Moto2 itself seems to have settled into a bit of a pattern though. Last season the most exciting races by far were Moto3 followed by MotoGP and then Moto2. Moto2 used to be riveting, maybe it needs a shake up so that everybody is in the same boat?

MotoGP » Moto2 COTA, Texas - Free Practice (2) Results

Man, that was a bad crash for Sam - I'm really pleased that he managed to walk (stagger) away from it. That man is tough! He's a world champion though so knows how to keep a bike on the road. I remember Anthony West saying that the Speed Up is far more finicky to set up and more of a 'threading the needle' chassis than the Kalex so I'm thinking that Sam may be the victim of this. The good thing is that he's got the speed to succeed and may go right to the top. It's great to have Brit shining so brightly. It's just a shame that Alex hasn't got the bike to show what he can do.
