WSBK » Giugliano: I don’t understand why I’m crashing so often

Guigliano is Fast with a capital F. He is Brave with a capital B. He is not afraid of close racing. He is full of self-confidence and not afraid to challenge the fastest riders on the best bikes. And fortunately, when he falls off he doesn't injure himself badly. The trouble is, the Duc is not an easy bike to ride, and when it lets go it is gone. It's limit is a knife edge, not a gradual transition. It is not "friendly" enough to give the rider a hope of "saving" the fall. Where other bikes give their riders a warning and a chance of recovery, the Duc just spits them off. I have no doubts in Guigliano's quality or capabilities. I think that on an Aprilia ( assuming they stay in WSBK with good factory support ) he would be a regular front-runner and podium visitor. Similar to Biaggi but with less moods and more friends.

MotoGP » Rossi: Fight for second ‘getting interesting’

R6Ryder: I know many of you'all thought VR would never have a shot at beating dani and or Lorenzo ever again! With that said I think if he was still 28. He would be fighting with mm for the title IMO
He don't need to be 28. If Yamaha would as good as they are now in the begining of the season MM wouldn't lead the championship by that far.
True that. He is riding well. At times I think he accepts that MM is faster. .
I agree, but would amend to- VR46 accepts that MM "on his Honda " is "usually" faster - but just for now. While Jlo and Dani are sticking with their personal riding styles, VR46 is watching, learning, and calculating how his style can be refined to match, and then beat, MM. VR is still motivated to beat the competition and his ability to adapt can be seen at each race. The old dog is still learning new tricks.

MotoGP » Rossi: Fight for second ‘getting interesting’

Tetley: The race for Championship second place is becoming as exciting as a big lass and a tub of swarfega. And that's a good thing.
Hmm A big lass and swarfega.......I just need to sit down for a moment!!!
I've been getting a lot of disagrees for my posting. If I have upset anyone they have my sincere apologies. Maybe I should just have written "The race for Championship second place is becoming exciting. And that's a good thing"

BSB » Kiyonari ‘thinking about title every day’

Kiyo, along with Jason O'Halloran was at Steve Parrish's M.A.D. show at Scunthorpe and I had a few words with him. He is far more relaxed these days as he has his family here in UK with him. Always modest, when I suggested "Champion" to him he smiled and said "Maybe" with a twinkle in his eyes. Silverstone is a high speed circuit and Kiyo's BMW seems a faster bike than Shakey's, so I'm expecting success for Kiyo there. Mind you, Brands Hatch is in Shakey country so the advantage will swing to him there, although his advantage will be less on the fast GP circuit than it would have been on the mickey-mouse Indy version. Call it Shoot-out, call it Show-down, call it manufactured circus, but it is producing some exciting close racing as the season climaxes. May the best man win.

MotoGP » Valentino Rossi talks Aragon accident

MotoMarc: I'd suggest very low curbs on the corners followed with a little tarmac ( allow rider correction then return to the track)
Sounds well worth a try, with the curbs progressively corrugated as in my earlier comment.
then the shredded tire runoff material.
Not quite so sure about shredded tyre, but I can't pinpoint why. Would the shredded tyre be Slick, full wet, or intermediate compound ? (Smiley Face).

MotoGP » Valentino Rossi discharges himself from hospital

( continued ), reply to mrfill maybe a solution would be to have the track edge approaching a corner to be progressively ridged, similar to corner apexes, but flat instead of banked ( if you see what I mean ), with blacktop beyond ? Or have the area beyond the track edge painted, but alternating stripes and tarmac, so there is a slight, but predictable lesser grip ? Or simply use the same surface as the track, but apply time penalties commensurate with the offence. I'm sure there are better alternatives to Astroturf, but they are not in what has been tried before, they are in what new solutions can be employed.
