WSS » Jacobsen snatches debut WSS win


@ professorx 1. We've seen many times that there is nothing wrong with the kawasaki's straight line speed 2. Stop banging on about it being an old bike, it may be old but that doesn't make it bad just well developed...... The Yamaha is even older and with the right rider is also still a winner. 3. You must have been watching a different race from everyone else if you didn't see that Kenan ruined his own race in the 1st lap, but he did manage to catch up with the lead riders and if he hadn't made the early mistakes then he and the bike clearly had the pace to fight for a win.

WSS » Sofuoglu stays top, Cluzel fractures leg


@ profx The fact he's Turkish has nothing to do with it, if he was a better option both on and off the bike then teams and sponsors would take him as far as he could go (some would say they have) . It also appears to be a common theme that ks's nearest rival each year "has 1/2 second on him" due to the bike and he overcomes this disadvantage or that is the reason he didn't win, time to face reality ......... he's a good 600 rider but that's as far as he can go, no shame in that as many have tried and failed in the 600 class but at the end of the day it's wsbk or MotoGP that riders really want to win , the rest is just a stepping stone to the big game.

WSS » Sofuoglu stays top, Cluzel fractures leg


ProfessorX: what a shame. Best of luck to Kenan, hope he rides his heart out and earns it when it counts. #UnderPressure ps. just read Kawasaki brought in some goods, it might have just saved them quite a bit. Considering how bad Kenan's bike has been for almost 2 years now, long over due.
This is an absolute travesty, as good as hands the title to KS on a silver platter (not that he deserves it) and to wish him "best of luck" is a bit of a joke because if he doesn't win it now he should just hang his leathers up for good.

WSS » Sofuoglu stays top, Cluzel fractures leg


ProfessorX:
reinmacre: How long does this guy, KS, plan to cherry pick WSS titles anyway? Time to put on your big boy pants and move to WSBK(again) or Moto2(again) or BSB....... Don't count your chickens too soon Kenan, PJJ could upset your "big fish in a little pond" title scenario.
His only shot is if Kawasaki picks him up, the KRT guys, cause hes not going there to play mid pack with Foret or Salom. The chances of KRT picking him up in the first place, nevermind giving him a fair shot, and dumping Sykes at the same time ... well, I don't see it happening. Kawasaki owe him a good bike in WSBK, at least for one year. But the chances of him getting a fair shot on the Kawasaki in WSBK are about the same as a Brit winning the MotoGP championship. Not anytime soon.
You're right there is no chance they'll drop Sykes (a successful wsbk rider) for KS (a 600ss specialist) and why would they, they want to win the championship.

WSS » Sofuoglu stays top, Cluzel fractures leg


@patrickd That's it exactly, an expert of the 600 class. And it is much easier to ride a 600 to the limit than a superbike/moto2 or MotoGP bike, he is not the god like hero that certain individuals make him out to be, more like the big fish in the small pond. It gets a bit monotonous "his bike is 1/2 sec down on his nearest rival" bs, he is and always has (in the 600ss class) been on one of or the best packages but if someone else wins its just down to his bike being better/faster/better supported by the factory, add to that his dirty/dangerous tactics in some races and it's easy to see why his achievements are tarnished in many people's eyes. And personally I'd rather be competing in the premier class than settling for being one of the best in the support class, after all 600ss is a feeder class and those that can step up to the next level do so.

MotoGP » Scott Redding signs for Pramac Ducati


I'm not sure all the negative comments directed at the Ducati are warranted any more, the gp15 is performing well and with better riders could be a regular podium contender. Even the current incarnation of the gp14 (.1,.2,.3 or whatever they are up to now) is out performing all expectations especially with the current riders on the machine so I don't think Redding is making a huge mistake signing a deal with pramac. He will be on a gp15 or better and with the changes for next year likely to bring the field closer together I think now is a good time to be bold and take chance.
