BSB » Jenny Tinmouth back for BSB 2014


Surely a move to a cheaper class like BSS or even BSSt would be a good idea. If you want to properly race in BSB you need the bike but crucially also the suspension and electronics expertise, I don't she has any of these. Without that you may just end up looking worse than you are and that destroys your confidence. I do wish her all the best though because she's already shown her courage and determination simply by putting her front wheel on the grid and qualifying for the race.

MotoGP » BT Sport reveals MotoGP TV line-up


It's a shame they've included Melanie because it's rather obvious why they've included her and will make her look a bit silly. I still don't get why people get quite so worried about which commentators are chosen Steve and Charlie were just fine. For me the only thing I'm interested in is the camera work I can always turn the sound down. For what it's worth, I'm not so keen on Julian Ryder because of his endless quoting of obscure stats, name dropping and accountant's tone of voice. But I'm sure he'll do fine.

MotoGP » Aleix Espargaro - Q&A


For me the main thing is that there's hope that another bike will mix it with the untouchable four. All this open stuff isn't the solution to the problem it's just a sticking plaster. Fortunately the solution does exist and it's called Moto2, WSS, BSB, BSS and to a lesser extent WSBK. Really looking forward to the race at Qatar but looking forward even more to seeing the guys slug it out at the first BSB race at Brands, you just can't beat that smell of cheap burgers, two stroke and burnt rubber!

WSBK » Philip Marron, Eugene Lavery's Crew Chief - Q&A


@TalentFan I agree that BSB have got it right when it comes to technical level and with Superbikes I think that that's where it'll go. The problem in MotoGP is the power of the factories and in particular Honda, they just want to win and don't care if there's no racing. I'm happy to see that the open class advantages may actually allow those bikes to compete with and even beat the factory ones. I think that's taken Honda by surprise and I'm guessing that the factory2 class suggestion may have come from them. I think that once we've had a season where more than 4 bikes can win, Honda and Yamaha may find it very difficult to put the genie back in the bottle. You notice that nobody ever discusses changing regulations for WSS or Moto2 because they've basically got it right.
