WSBK » PICS: Guigliano slips off at Donington Park


I like Guigliano. He's a fighter. He's very fast. He's unpredictable and he's exciting to watch. He's already getting amongst the front men, while so many established names are fading at the back. Davide will learn how to stay on the bike, and when he does he will be a consistent front runner and podium finisher. It's possible to teach a fast rider to become safe, but almost impossible to teach a safe rider to become fast.

WSBK » Melandri slips further from WSBK title fight

Fullofit:
Tetley: Still no sign of Manu. Has Marco lost his reason for rushing to the finish line ?
Hmmm, now that you mention it ... she has been missing.
No boys. Keep waiting. Manuella is pregnant and resting at home. They posted a photo on twitter a few days ago. I was wondering about that at Assen too, bu then saw their tweet and it all made sense.
Ah, that explains her absence and might also explain the change in MM33's riding. Either way, I was right in suspecting that she was on Marco's mind.

WSBK » Melandri slips further from WSBK title fight


IE22: Aprilia go and replace a rider who won 9 races for them last season with this You reap what you sow
In Marco's defence, no doubt Marco was looking forward to racing for Gigi and it would be reasonable for him to be upset when he learned that the teams main asset had moved to Ducati. I wonder if Marco is on a one-year contract? If so I'd guess that Aprilia are already talking to other riders. Eugene did well on the Aprilia and could be a good choice, but he seems to be counting on the Suzuki seat.

AussieNSW: @Tetley Did you have your Earl Grey today?otherwise known in pommiland as "mash" I'm not sure if thats proper grammer.
Nice one, Bluey. Up here in the North " Brew" is used more commonly than "Mash", as in Guy Martin's " Big Brew" charitable venture. "Mash" generally refers to creamed potatoes. Maybe you were in London or the South when you encountered "Mash"? OR, maybe they realised your antipodean roots and decided not to say "Brew" in case you chose a Fosters or a Castlemaine fourX? The trouble with foreigners is they have a different word for everything.

WSBK » Supreme Sykes hails ‘best race’ of career


Baz is giving Tom a hard time and his clear intention is to beat the 2013 World Champion. Ironically, it may be Baz's performance that has motivated Tom out of the doldrums and back into contention. Meanwhile, Guintoli is consistently with the leaders while Melandri is up and down like a bride's nightie. Like I said a few days ago, it is unwise to discount Sylvain. Guigliano is getting faster and continues to be a threat, and is taking over Melandri's role as the man you don't want on your rear wheel. And the SmoulderBlade continues to be a flash-in-the-pan for Rea and a pain in the arris for Haslam. Bluddy brilliant racing.

Greavesit: Pirelli can't even match lap records in BSB that are 8 years old
It is so easy to say that, but you are forgetting that the spec of the BSB bikes themselves has been reigned in over the past 8 years and they are now running to much more restrictive rules, effectively the Evo rules which were at the back of the grid a year or so ago.. You could just as easily say that no-one has completed a faster lap on a GP bike than Barry Sheene's 137 mph lap average back in times long ago. As it is, it would be better to note that in BSB, Pirelli tyres rarely give problems, warm up quickly, appear to be consistent over race distance, and no team is favoured by suspiciously better-then-the-norm tyres. All of which is exactly what MotoGP needs. No I'm not a Pirelli fan, they don't suit my bike at all. But Bridgestones do.

[blockquoteEDIT by CRASH.NET! Grammar? It's EFFECT, not AFFECT! Grammar ? No, that's not grammar, that's just mis-spelling or an incomplete knowledge of English vocabulary resulting in inappropriate terminology. Grammar is poor punctuation, syntax, phonology, or etymology. It includes poor construction of sentences and other errors such as split infinitives e.g. " To boldly go". Crash! Before you correct someone, first you must be sure that you yourself are correct, not just THINK you're correct. Now can we get back to dissin motersickles ? ( Smiley Face )

Let's hope that extra testing is scheduled for 2015 so teams can find out how the Michelins behave and start to work developing new base settings to suit the 2016 season's bikes. And let's hope that the tyre spec is decided and frozen well before the start of the 2016 season. Dithering with different tyre specs as Bridgestone did at the start of 2014 would cause chaos and justifiable complaints from teams and riders.
