WSBK » Sykes: Baz proved a lot of people right at my expense…


@ theeagle & Gatofuji It has nothing to do with being upset about a team mate that beat him. This is EXACTLY what I, and a few others here, have been saying FROM RACE 1 IN PHILLIP ISLAND!!!! Tom, I am sure, has NO ISSUE being beaten, but from the opening race of the season he has been putting VERY sketchy, Melandri-esque passes on his own team mate, and a lot of us have said that he is going to take them both out and hurt Kawasaki's Rider and Manufacturer Title hopes. No points for a double DNF. It was stupid and it's been a long time coming. I like and support both riders (Granted, Sykes a little more), but I am first and foremost a Kawasaki fan..

MotoGP » Crutchlow 'so sorry' for Bradl


@ 990ccAl Don't forget, Dovi has been on the Ducati a whole season more than Cal... As has Crazy Joe. That makes a difference with a bike that is notoriously difficult. Also, Cal has had a rough start to the season. Bad crash in Texas, brake failures and mechanical failures... Not exactly confidence enspiring... I hope it gets better as I think he really does have what it takes...

WSBK » Rea hoping for Sepang MotoGP test advantage


Guys, the only thing slightly dated on the Honda is the engine, which has been beefed up a LITTLE this year. Otherwise, it's running latest spec suspension, HRC, MotoGP derived electronics, and swing arm. The bike needs more grunt, no doubt. But at Imola it proved it is NOT that bad... John McGuiness has proved that newer isn't necessarily better, saying they keep reverting ton2009 setup etc.

WSBK » Melandri heads Aprilia 1-2-3 in FP1


Im just happy to see the tight gap at the top! I think we are going to have GREAT racing this weekend! Nice to see Toni up there and comfortable. I think by qualifying Tom will come out tops and Baz will move ahead of the Ducatis. Just a feeling. The races are going to be epic though. The Ducatis will give them stick on the long flowing corners and drop a little on the straights, expect Tom to come good, either breaking way or coming on strong late on as he has been recently.

WSBK » WSBK leader Sykes set for Sepang bow


Spot on mate. As a LONG time fan, very rewarding to see. I hope we get Yamaha back, I hope BMW change their mind, Buel get up to speed, and Bimota continue the positive trend. I have given up hope of EVER seeing KTM joining or Triumph building a litre bike. A Yam, a NEW Honda, NEW FACTORY BACKED Suzuki, MV, Bimota, Buel, Kawa and Prilla would be quite fun to see

WSBK » WSBK leader Sykes set for Sepang bow

GSiebert:
1MoreRound: Wonder if we'll get another Bazooka vs. Tommy Gun battle on race day? Kind of hoping for it! Though I'm guessing the team is probably telling Loris to calm it down just a bit...
Lets hope not, it looks like Loris is the only rider fast and consistent enough to be a real threat for Syke's championship.
Team Green has it sorted, for sure. Looking around, I see Ducati which is improving but still not %100 "there" all the time, no BMW, you have Honda which is ANCIENT and only making moves at certain times, then Suzuki (see entry for Honda, but to an even lesser degree), and then there is Aprilia... Marco can't make it work (good job sacking Laverty!) and Guinters is not showing massive consistency... perhaps they have lost their edge in power now that they can't slap unlimited motors int he things. So yeah, it's a Kawasaki 1-2. Come the "Evo Era" things could get shook up but for now the Ninj

WSBK » Supreme Sykes hails ‘best race’ of career


@ JedPB67 Where did he complain about his team mate? Baz does have a habit of diving in quite scarily, which I am sure the team aren't always happy with, as, if they collide, they'll probably both be taken out of the race. Tom has shown he is more than happy to mix it with his team mate (and anyone else). What I do love, is how two years ago everyone (by that, I mean, all the haters) were on here saying how useless Tom was, what a one-lap-wonder he was, can't make tyres last a whole race, can't pass, once he gets passed he disappears, bla bla bla. NOW, he is the fastest guy as the race moves on, he scythes through the field with relative ease, and his hard braking style, which was so heavily criticised, is what is earning him those (CLEAN) passes. Great show Tom, Loris and Team Green.

WSBK » Sykes ‘frustrated’ not to have more wins


I dunno what you guys mean about the beard... I think it's kinda cool... in a.. farmer brown... kinda way... HAHA. He does seem to race harder when he has the facial fungus going. I have to be honest, reinmacre is 100% right. In both red flagged races Tom was catching at a serious rate, so I think Guinters is the one who's been lucky. And as Tom proved at Assen, anyone who thinks he can't pass, make tyres last and can only win from the front is dead wrong... He was way back and basically brushed off anyone around him like nothing. Go Tom!
