WSBK » Carl Fogarty wins ‘I’m A Celebrity…’


In his autobiography , Foggy reveals that when he was racing he made a conscious decision and effort to appear cold, serious and unsociable to his rivals. He also made predictions which acted as self-motivation because he had to achieve them to avoid ridicule. When he focuses on a task he stays focused and will not give in until it is completed. As he was in racing, so he was in the jungle. And it worked. And he won.

MotoGP » Marc Marquez moving to Andorra?


I spent a few days in Andorra in May 2013, en route to the Spanish MotoGP. It is a popular ski and Winter sports resort, but even in May it was windy and bitterly cold. And almost every shop stinks of tobacco smoke. I certainly do not plan to visit there again, so I hope Marc finds the place more enjoyable than I did. Of course, he'll have a fast car and a helipad, so the warmth and beauty of Catalonia will only be an hour or so away and I expect he'll just use Andorra as a dormitory.

MotoGP » 2016 MotoGP ECU to be ‘equal, easy, safe’


Brain: I have done the research, and like i said, BSB has not come close to producing the talent the AMA Superbike series produced , making it the premier national series for decades. They are both a joke at the moment, hopefully the new regime will turn the AMA around.
I will say this one last time, when you started this conversation your topic was "the AMA series, the best on the planet" and that was the opinion I challenged. In your subsequent postings you changed the topic to comparing riders talent and you continue so to do in your latest posting. You seem determined to make an argument about something, even if it is something I haven’t an interest in, and now you make provocative statements such as calling BSB a joke, despite obviously having no actual experience of it. But I’m not going to satisfy your appetite by being led into your changing choice of topics. That’s all I intend to say to you, but doubtless you’ll want to drag it out ad infinitum.

MotoGP » 2016 MotoGP ECU to be ‘equal, easy, safe’


Post them up, we will compare accomplishments on the world stage. Maccau ,IOM etc are fun to watch, and the riders have brass cajones, BUT lets not kid ourselves, the best riders in the world dont have to play in the death races to scratch out a living on a motorbike. Oh, and if we are discounting Australians, scratch Bayliss from the list of talent that BSB produced.
No. Do your own research. Nobody said Bayliss was a BSB graduate. I'm not going to be goaded into a tit-for-tat like we have seen here in recent times. I've made my points where I see you are wrong or ill-informed. You've moved the goalposts to divert from your initial biased statement i.e. AMA was the best series on the planet. Be satisfied. Leave it at that. Move on. That's what I'm doing. Resistance is futile ( Vogon voice ).

Tetley your comment was "stupidest" when you say it attracts intern’l riders and Aus with Japan being nearer. most are failed int'l riders,
Kiyonari, Morais, Richards, McConnell, Brookes, Jacobsen, Guintoli, Baz all came from their own National series to BSB. None were “failures” when they came. Japan is nearer home for four of them. Bridewell? He’s a rising star and an exciting rider IMHO.
Palmer is no diff to Dorna about money e.g. placing Haga in a team that didn't really want him), do you think MSV would stay with Eurosport if BT offered £8m a year?
That's all irrelevant to this debate. Palmer has improved the tracks. The racing is fast, close and sporting irrespective of who broadcasts it.
Look at the Italian and Jap championships
Neither excite me. Look at the entry list for Macau- thronged with Brit riders (all recent winners are Brits) and it is on Japan and Aus’s doorstep.

RSMick: Tetley your my hero, how do you deduce I'm having a stress attack?,
Now that is a far more considered response, with a bit of wit included. I can tell you're a bit off-kilter when I post "It has certainly improved since Palmer's lot took over, but even back in the days of Hizzy, Plater, and Reynolds it was a super series to watch." and you reply " That's the most stupid posting etc-" or words to that effect. However, it's off-season, and we're all needing rehab for "no racing" withdrawal symptoms. ( Smiley Face ).

Brain: No, when this conversation started, i said "AMA Superbike was head and shoulders the best National series on the planet "
That was the statement I disagreed with. THEN in a later post you moved the goalposts to
I said i judged a series worth with the talent it produces or produced. How is that changing the topic..
In your first posting you were talking about the AMA's status on the world scene. In your subsequent posting you changed the topic to comparing riders. Q.E.D. And you continue so to do in your latest posting
There is no comparison in the talent that has come out of BSB compared to the AMA.
You are side-stepping the fact that the AMA series was tediously dominated for year after year by Matt Mladin, an AUSTRALIAN ! You don't know much about BSB or the many WSS and WSBK, World Endurance, Macau and TT champions who started there, do you? So please don’t diss what you don’t know.
