MotoGP » Smith’s ankle ‘a four to six month injury’

It's a real shame that Bradley seems to draw the trolling remarks on this site. He is simply a world class racer who is taking all opportunities offered to him. At a personal level he is always polite and respectful and on track is always hard working and fast. If you think someone else should have his ride, fair enough - even though Herve P disagrees with you, but do you really think that a rider who has speed and self belief should relinquish his ride because of an armchair expert's opinion?? He's doing fine at the moment but I still think he will make that breakthrough.

F1 » Silverstone boss: F1 not as exciting as it should be

I still don't understand why F1 fans seem so keen on pit stops - be it for fuel or tyres - this just means that if you want to get in front of someone on track you just ask the little men with laptops in the pits to arrange it so that your car gets ahead by a bit of pitstop jiggery pokery. I far prefer the bike way which is that if you want to get ahead of someone then you have to pass them - isn't that called racing?

MotoGP » Rossi: The championship is still very long!

I don't get the hysteria about the world championship going on here, we're only 3 races in and I would say that MM is in general still the faster man on the day. I agree that Vale's done well and most importantly been part of some incredible racing but I would still put MM as the favourite. We're also forgetting that Dovi is only 6 points down on an improving Duc. Remember how hard Rossi had to fight to beat Dovi in the first race when the Yamaha was sorted and the Duc had no racing under its belt? It's his best chance for years but lets leave it until Japan before talking about world championships. I'd love to see him win it though.

WSBK » Fabrizio returns to Ducati machinery for Imola

When a team needs a replacement to stand-in for an injured rider I do wish that they'd be more brave with their choice. The stand-in isn't going to do anything for the championship so you may as well take a punt from one of the national series or support series. Why not give Andrew Reid or Kyle Ryde a call? I just don't think that Michel has got that desperation any more and you can be sure that someone like Andrew or Kyle would do something interesting with that bike!

MotoGP » Rossi: Marquez made a mistake

It's a shame that people are making this out to be some kind of grudge match or that one rider or the other was stupid or dangerous. As far as I could see it was a racing incident but came about because both MM and VR are supremely able, motivated and aggressive riders. Neither of them seem excessively put out by what happened. The important thing was that it was an absolute belter of a race with the great drama of the chase being topped off with 2 riders at their peak sorting it out at the end. MM is a real phenomenon but I can't help feeling that all's right with the world if VR wins - absolutely loved the race!
