WSBK » Sykes: I was 80 per cent certain I wouldn't ride...

The commentators even mentioned that the Aprilia bikes are smoother on their tyres. Tyre wear has been a problem for Kawasaki but its too early to judge if they've fixed it or not. The track was resurfaced which made it abrasive as well. Respect to all those riders who rode today through their injuries! They are clearly not soccer players - LOL :)

WSBK » Checa on pole for Ducati 1199 debut

I never said or thought that the Ducati V-twin's were going to dominate. What I meant is that the rules are always changing to accommodate the Ducati's. The WSBK rules don't just stipulate that if you have a 4 cylinder 1000cc or a 2 cylinder 1200cc then you can race! The rules keep changing (not necessarily in Ducati's favor either) regarding weight and electronics. The fact that this is always changing to keep it equal clearly means that a 4 cylinder bike is not in direct competition to a 2 cylinder unless there is more weight placed on the 2 cylinder and less modifications allowed. I myself don't have a problem with it because it looks really complicated. If Ducati are storming in to the front place too often then it's the bike that is penalized with more weight and not the rider who is given the credit. Then there are the posters on here who like to get personal. If you don't like someone else's opinion just "unlike" it on the post. Don't get personal. Keep it clean.

WSBK » Checa on pole for Ducati 1199 debut

@Who Says: That's a very mature response "mate"! I did not mean that WSBK is a 1000cc event, but when 99% of the manufacturers are producing and racing 4 cylinder 1000cc machines then why develope a 2 cylinder 1200cc? Ducati won the WSBK championship with their 999R so it is possible. You don't have to like my opinion but have the balls to register with your name if you want to throw out insults, otherwise read and respect my opinion. It may not be right but its my opinion. I still have huge respect for Checa to be able to ride that machine and put it on pole.

MotoGP » Nicky Hayden: Ducati need something big

Guys keep pushing Stoner into the picture! I agree he rode the Ducati better than anyone, even better than Rossi. However, the problem is that the Ducati never evolved much from 2007 whereas the Japanese duo morphed into the serious race winning machinery of today! Stoner won 10 races in 2007, 6 in 2008, 4 in 2009 and only 3 in 2010. Yes, at least Stoner won races and competed at the front. But Stoner also crashed more than the other riders. Not because of his own fault but because Ducati stagnated in their production. So bringing Stoner back will achieve very little. Ducati need a kick up the rear to produce a proper race contender :?

MotoGP » Hayden frank on Ducati performance

You deserve so much more Hayden! I don't think you'll ever get the factory Honda or Yamaha rides with all the other young talent out there and up and coming, but you definitely deserve more than a Ducati! Get onto a WSBK factory bike for 2014 and start enjoying racing again! You'll be amazing in that series and you'll have fun, and when you have fun you'll start winning again :)
