MotoGP » Valentino Rossi: VR46 Academy keeps me young!


VR46 is to be congratulated and thanked for using his wealth, his knowledge, his experiences and his influence in helping younger riders to attain their potential. He clearly has no intention of taking the money and disappearing when his riding days are over. Unlike most riders of recent years, he won't just be making cash from personal appearances to promote spurious companies. He won't be making appearances just for the personal glory. He sets an unparallelled standard for others to aspire to, both in his riding and in his altruistic support of younger riders. It is just one of the aspects of true greatness which the GOAT has brought to the sport. We won't miss him. He's not going away.

BSB » Bridewell teases upcoming announcement


I'm anticipating that Tommy will land a BMW ride, likely with Philip Neill. TAS are reportedly in discussions with BMW and an announcement is expected in a couple of weeks, which is in line with Tommy's latest announcement. I hope so. He's earned it, he's young and he's getting faster and more determined. On a works or works supported BMW Tommy will be a regular podium visitor in 2015.

MotoGP » PICS: Vinales' Suzuki goes pop...


: re: "That's the Yoshimura effect. ( Pops - geddit ? )"
shamaroneyup, got it. now, the man whose services THEY need to get would be... (wait for it) (wait for it) ...Masao Furusawa.
I think they hired Filippo Preziosi, instead. " My way is the way, the only way, the only true way, will always be the way and no way will anyone stray from the way. And things will stay as they are." ( Smiley Face )

BSB » Bridewell teases upcoming announcement


JedPB67: It seems pretty strongly thought that he's going to join TAS, but I'll throw it out there, I think he's going to the WSB paddock in either WSB or WSS.
Maybe so, Lowes made a successful move from BSB to WSS and may have set a precedent. But in WSBK most of the top teams have already announced their riders. The best of the rest is the vacant seat alongside Leon Haslam in the Red Devils Roma Aprilia team, or as a long shot maybe he'll pip Camier to the sole MV ?

MotoGP » Lorenzo: Force riders to pit in the rain


custard: The real problem is that they don't have inters to choose from because Bridgestone can't keep up with the demand of producing those as well as all the other tyres. .
They still have to produce the same number of tyres, irrespective of tread compound and design. Everyone agrees the tyres are the problem in mixed conditions, so it is the tyres which should be altered, not the rules. The tyre manufacturers could supply cut slicks which make a decent Inter tyre, or Teams could be allowed to cut their own slicks. Bike changes should be at the riders discretion, with the team management deciding whether to kit the "wet" bike with wet tyres or cut slicks. Maybe 2016's supplier may have their own solution ?

MotoGP » Lorenzo: Force riders to pit in the rain


“I think if the white flag is waved and then all MotoGP riders have two laps to enter [the pits] it would be a good option” - Jorge Lorenzo. I think it is JLo who is waving the white flag. When the weather is iffy JLo surrenders. All the other riders know this and will use it against him. In those conditions other riders will crowd him, pressure him, spook him. He'll be wishing he had kept his weakness a secret. The solution is in his own head, not in a white flag and a compulsory pitstop.

MotoGP » Lorenzo: Force riders to pit in the rain


custard: And yep I did four seasons in SS400 and two as an F1 sidecar passenger, when you hit water on slicks it's virtually game over, which demonstrates the skills and iron balls these guys have.
Sidecar passenger - there lies madness ! There is no cure. I was on the IoM when Hewitt got a badly cut arm in sidecar race 1. He and Webster still won but he needed stitches immediately after the race. For Sidecar race 2, 2 days later, he broke his stitches as they were limiting his arm movement, and he and Webster won again. Barmy but magnificent.
