MotoGP » Crutchlow: It was a challenging day


@ Tomcol I have criticised a lot of the people on here before saying they KNOW the problem with the Ducati is the engine etc... The problem is now, I am starting to agree with them (MAYBE). As my previous post said, they have tried new chassis after new chassis to little or no effect. COULD it be that the engine (orientation? positioning?) could be the cause of lack of weight over the front? They need new thinking in the design department. I hope Gigi can bring that to the table. Maybe they should whip out a 2009 bike and let Dovi and Crutch have a few laps to compare?

WSBK » Sykes prepares for latest winter test at Aragon


And here we are, stuck in the inevitable wait until Feb 2014. I am so amped for next season, Baz will make HUGE strides as he did from last year to this. This should push Kawasaki into better contention for Manufacturers. Sykes just goes on and on showing the haters how wrong they were. I can only REALISTICALLY see Marco on the Aprilia worrying them at all. Maybe Guinters if he catches a break.

MotoGP » Crutchlow: It was a challenging day


GEEZ LOUIZE!!! Give the guy a break!!! For all the professional haters out there, PLEASE tell me what his options were??? Tech 3 have a deal with Smith for next year, they were ALREADY talking to Pol before Cal signed with Ducati. YAMAHA WANTED, AND WERE INSISTING ON, ESPARGARO!!! He has the Ducati, which, beforethe Rossi era (NOT blaming him), was winning races. It can win again. I do, however, think Ducati need to DRASTICALLY change the frame, or look at other issues, as we have heard MANY times (from Rossi, Nicky, and Dovi) that they tried a new frame, with little/no improvement/difference.

MotoGP » Hayden 'really happy' after Honda bow


@ yourname here What planet do you live on? I'm not slating Nicky, I like him a lot, but at age 20 (Which Scott is now) he wasn't even racing internationally. Redding is already a four time grand prix winner, 15 time grand prix podium finisher. Other than that there's not much to compare, granting their different rise to MotoGP (Nicky making a rapid ascent. I reckon they will be well matched. Scott will need some experience I think, but the kid is TALENT for sure.

WSBK » Camier: 'The day after they decided to sign Laverty'


I think the main thing the fans (and Leon) are upset about is that they had a "handshake agreement" before this happened. At the end of 2012, Paul Denning, in his own words, had a handshake agreement with Guintoli and when Guinters got a better offer, Denning went on and on about a handshake agreement being enough for him, and not honouring that is unacceptable. Now he's done the EXACT same thing to Leon. As for people saying Leon isn't up to WSBK, Sykes battled in 2009 on the championship winning Yamaha. More than likely due to not being treated evenly to Spies (as I have read in interviews with Sykes), but he came good. Leon, APPARENTLY, had the same issues at Aprilia... I think he's still worthy.

WSBK » Tom Sykes, Kawasaki – Q&A


I truly hope this is a long partnership! I have ALWAYS been a Kawasaki fan and have supported Sykes since he joined up. The peoples' bike with a nice guy. IF Sykes ever decides to jump ship to MotoGP, I sincerely hope it's with Kawasaki planning a return. He has shown he can lead the way on bike development with a strong team (Provec) behind the operation.
