WSBK » ‘If’s and ‘but’s for Haslam at Phillip Island


You've really got to question the use of honda's own electronics package if it is causing as many problems as the riders are saying, not that I doubt them. Ten Kate have been championing the fire blade for years now with little or no help from Honda and now that they seem to be getting more assistance from the big h it is more of a hindrance than a help,

MotoGP » They said it: Sepang MotoGP test…


@ jamesk Race craft doesn't improve lap times but it can win a race. Just look at Laguna 08, Rossi knew that if stoner got a little gap on him he would run away with the race so every time stoner passed him he did everything he could to pass back straight away. If you are not the fastest then you just have to break the other riders rhythm to level the playing field and maybe force them to make an error.

MotoGP » Valentino Rossi: We can fight


@ mike Baylis and capirossi were quick on a trellis framed 990 with tyres which were manufactured to suit the bike, a completely different bike than the one used by stoner, Rossi, melandri, Hayden etc. It is an irrelevant comparison between trellis framed ducati's and what came after, stoner proved his ability by being able to win with the ducati on the carbon fibre bike but for most other riders its been a career wrecker. Hayden is stuck at ducati now and unless the Audi involvement brings things on quickly it will take a disaster or downpour to give ducati a chance of a podium.

MotoGP » Valentino Rossi: We can fight


It's good to see him getting back up to speed so soon after a relatively short time on the bike. As long as he's close to the guys in front in tests and qualifying then he can't be written off in the races. Let's just hope this season is injury free for all the riders so we have the chance of some season long battles to enjoy as race fans.

MotoGP » Marquez from Rossi by halftime at Sepang


@ pcuser271 Is that you casey ? Do you really believe that or is it just sour grapes ? Lets be a bit more realistic, 07 they got lucky and got the jump on the rest but also had the benefit of tyres produced to suit the bike. After that season others closed the gap and when the tyres were the same for everybody other manufacturers did a better job of building a bike to suit the tyres available. Check the results, casey's got worse each year after 07, and I'm not knocking him in the slightest as I would put the blame firmly at ducati's door, I personally think casey did a phenomenal job on a bike that was getting worse (compared to others) each year after 07.
