MotoGP » Jorge Lorenzo makes 2012 predictions


1st post thumbs down reason. Lorenzo to win this year. Not a fan but he is a better racer than stoner, maybe not a faster outright rider but stronger in a battle. If you look at the times from the 1st test casey maybe had the outright fastest lap but jlo had more consistently quick laps than him and 1 quick lap may get you on pole but it doesn't win the race. Other riders may challenge in the odd race but I think it will be these two who are fighting for the title.

WSBK » Josh Brookes to substitute for John Hopkins


@ bsbisgoodforyou So everybody else got it wrong and Josh (it's never my fault) Brookes is determined to clear his name, have I got it now? Let's just imagine for a second he's telling the truth, what was he doing going into that corner at full race pace on the sighting lap when there were quite clearly slower riders ahead of him? It's not like he was trying to make a pass on somebody!

WSBK » Josh Brookes to substitute for John Hopkins


@ sparky62. & bsbisgoodforyou I've double checked just to be sure and after investigation the official findings were that " no mechanical defects were found" and the rider had pumped the brakes for no apparent reason. Not sure but if the scrutineers or hm plant mechanics couldn't find a fault then I'm guessing there was no mechanical fault, purely rider error. These are the facts but no doubt i'll get more 'disagree' than 'agree' comments.

WSBK » Josh Brookes to substitute for John Hopkins


@ tetley How dare you disrespect an aussie, next you'll be saying that other aussie isn't the greatest rider ever to have graced the the world of racing. Totally agree with you! However if Brookes could do 1 thing that would help more than any other it would be that when he makes a big mistake (and he will), he holds his hands up and admits it was his fault instead of the usual b.s. excuses.

WSBK » Josh Brookes to substitute for John Hopkins


@ sparky62 I do follow racing and if you check you'll find that the bike was repaired for racing before it was examined and the only evidence used was computer data from the bike and verbal statements from rider and technicians, this showed that he braked at normal place for racing lap but pumped the brakes which caused him to go out of control. But this was on a sighting lap which is why it was so dangerous, he simply shouldn't have been at race pace on a sighting lap and should have been more aware of others around him, which is why he got a suspended ban.
