BSB » Parkes confirms Milwaukee Yamaha BSB talks


I've always been a fan of Tommy Bridewell's but for me he has underperformed a little this season. The new professional and controlled TB seems to have lost some of the winning spark that Alex Lowes managed to retain. My heart would say keep Tommy but my head would say go for Broc. Broc's a great rider but I don't know if he's got Josh's aggression and you need that to survive in BSB. Time will tell.

WSBK » Baz: I am only nice to those who are nice to me


I'm actually OK with Loris' decision. The team can try and tell him what to do but ultimately it's his choice. Why should he give up a place so someone he doesn't like much? Why should he try and help someone who hasn't helped him to get something that he wants so much. It could be justifiable for the manufacturer's title, but not the riders. As it stands MM and LB's behaviour forced the riders to compete using their own results and skills but the only way to stop this bun fight is to ban team orders.

MotoGP » Rivals, manager, brother talk Laverty MotoGP move


@cfsteezy "i am worried about is the fact that Aleix espargaro runs with and beats the satelite hondas which have the 2014 factory engine" I think that's more to do with open class advantages and tyres than pure engine, next years production Honda will also have these advantages, personally I'm looking forward to what it can do. Correct me if I'm wrong but I think the big advantage that the factory bikes will have is the seamless shift (and of course DP and MM).

WSBK » Crutchlow on WSBK troubles, BSB strengths


I love BSB, the atmosphere, paddock and competition are top notch. I think SH has done a great job. For me there is problem though, the series needs more young hotshots or international stars. The days of Leon, Leon, Cal, Johnny and Tom are long gone and the only young gun we've had recently was Alex. There are far too many middling riders seeing out their careers. SH should focus on this and if possible learn from how the Catalonians do it for bringing up new riders.

MotoGP » Casey Stoner to test 2015 Honda, Michelins


@herewego It's interesting that Casey still gives rise to such debate and controversy. I think that his problem was that he simply didn't have a likeable media personality and furthermore didn't regard it as important. I guess it was partly the media aspect of it that soured MotoGP for him. As regards his talent, to say that 2 championships isn't much really is taking leave of reality, it's something that only very,very few riders have achieved at top level. The crucial thing about Casey's 2 however was that one was achieved on the Duke which his team mate was nowhere on. The result of swapping VR onto the Duke and CS onto the Honda make me question which of the 2 riders had the most raw talent. I often didn't warm to his character on screen (particularly after Laguna Seca)but I'm confident that if I met him in person when he was relaxed I'd like him just fine.

MotoGP » Casey Stoner to test 2015 Honda, Michelins


After 2 years Casey probably isn't bike fit and with a new talent like MM around I think that CS would have a pretty much vertical learning curve to get to the front again. It would all come down to motivation and how he handled the initial blow to his confidence. The problem with Casey is that he has achieved pretty much all there is to be achieved in MotoGP, earned more money than he can spend and then gone on to a more rounded family life. He would have to come back for the love of racing and the paddock and we all know how much he likes the BS in the paddock. He should continue with his new life and leave an incredible legacy intact, I'll miss him though, one of the few riders you could just watch race a lap and be entertained.
