MotoGP » Crutchlow wraps up 'top satellite' title in tough race

Wow people love to hate... Cal did a stellar job this year. And I agree with a previous poster that his results tailed off after his Ducati announcement. Firstly, it was expected that the satellite bike would become less competitive as the year rolled on, secondly, he is signed to a factory team next year, why risk serious injury when you're already signed? Also, I feel he did the right thing moving. Tech 3 / Yamaha had pretty-much signed Pol before Cal's announcement, and they were not gonna get rid of Smith, so he needed to make a move. Good luck Cal, I hope Ducati start a major revamp of the bike and move FORWARD for once!

WSBK » Laverty: Melandri is a dirty rider…

I too am a fan of Melandri (and Sykes (most of all), Laverty, Rea, Giugliano, Elias, Guinters, Davies, Aitchison....) They're all great to watch. Marco, in my viewm still brings something the sport truely needs, a hungry, aggressive attitude. THAT SAID, I feel he often takes it too far. He is dirty, no denying it. The block pass has it's place... IN LAST LAP FIGHTS, but he often goes beyond a block pass and risks taking himself and other riders out.

MotoGP » Aoyama tight-lipped on Aspar MotoGP rumours

@ V4Poweer Again, I have said this many times before. Johnny is the ONLY rider to be semi-competitive on the Honda. He won ONE race this year and crashed a few times trying (in vain) to get a podium. Haslam... INJURED. Xaus... Crashes galore. Neukirchner... BOWLING A BIKE. Fabrizio (who knows the tracks, competition and tyres). NOWHERE! Hiro came from a series where they run Bridgestones (Which Rossi, after testing the R1 after his broken leg, statet that Bridgestones and Pirellis are the major difference between the two series), to ride a PIG of a bike, on tyres he didn't know... Let's not forget that before Simoncelli's fatal accident (RIP Marco), Hiro, on a satellite spec bike, had lead Marco for much of the season. The guy has talent, just needs a bike he clicks with.

WSBK » Baz back on track at Jerez

@ pcxmac I disagree. Let's not forget he's young. Relatively inexperienced. I don't think Kawasaki would intentionally slow him down as that would hurt their chances of manufacturer's title which I don't doubt they would love to take. Baz was much more consistent this year. I think we will see an even stronger showing from him next year.
