RR » Guy Martin 'still wants to race' after Dundrod smash

GuzziHero: I think there is a wide perception (shared partly by myself), that the statement reads like a paid advertisement for AGV and Dainese.
I take your point, but if he is contracted to Dainese and AGV to wear and promote their products then I see it as doing what he's paid for, even though he not on the circuits to fly their flags. It's certainly no worse than those podium-placed racers who, when interviewed post-race come out with "I'd like to thank my sponsors " followed by a list of names which have nothing to do with bikes or racing. It's certainly no worse than those o0ther podium-placed racers who won't have their photo taken without a can of their sponsor's energy drink, and who we never see without being dressed head-to-toe in sponsor-badged leathers or casual clothing.
IGuzziHero, like everyone I am sure, wish Guy a speedy and full recovery.
Totally agree. He's an indispensable character.

WSBK » Yamaha confirms Crescent, Lowes, Guintoli for WSBK

While almost everyone on here is debating whether Crescent Yamaha or Kawasaki will be top in 2016, they are forgetting that the Panigale has come good and Chaz Davies knows how to get the best out of it. Kawasaki can't shake off their tyre problems. Ten-Kate are going backwards with that clunker Fireblade. The Aprilia's superiority faded with this season's new rules and the loss of Gigi. Crescent's WSBK experience is vast but slightly out-of-date, and it will be a learning year with the Yamaha. My money is on a great battle for the 2016 title between Rea and Davies.

WSBK » Yamaha confirms Crescent, Lowes, Guintoli for WSBK

Jimmy1Honda IS NOT involved at all. Ten Kate is a private outfit, albeit very professional.
Ten Kate are Honda's largest Dutch, and possibly European, dealer. On TV coverage of the Ten Kate pits, you often see a large man with a large moustache. He is Honda's head of European Sales. When Honda withdrew their works team from WSBK they still needed representation on the grid and because of Ten Kate's sucess in racing Hondas in the 600 category a deal was made with Ten Kate to fly Honda's flag in WSBK. Ten Kate very much have had a long and lucrative close association with Honda and they have preferrential links to the factory's competition department. Honda is VERY involved with the Ten Kate team.

WSBK » Yamaha confirms Crescent, Lowes, Guintoli for WSBK

AyrtonSenna: Hang on. The Ducati has only become competitive because the weight restriction has been relaxed the last 5 races. Lets allow the other bikes to have an extra 200 cc or their own electronics. But I think yamaha know they will cane the ducatis even if they had a 1500cc bike...
Hola Ayrton and Hang On Sloopy, How they came to be competitive is not the issue - the fact remains they ARE competitive now, and I reckon Chaz on his Panigale has a real opportunity to challenge for the Championship next year.

MotoGP » Cecchinello: I was nervous when I saw Jack behind Cal…

ianisme: being totally fair about it Miller was riding extremely well up to that point.
Largely due to the power delivery of his bike being less aggressive than the factory spec bikes.
ianisme:His bike should have been nowhere near the front. The fact that he was says a lot about his wet riding abilities.
Yes it does. It says he totally misjudged the wet conditions, which resulted in him crashing and taking out his team-mate. His team boss had anticpated that JM would do something stupid, and had warned him three times about it before the race. But JM ignored Cechinello. The lad thinks he knows better than his boss, but he proved that he doesn't. I hope this is a reality check for him

MotoGP » Riders comment on Kent’s proposed MotoGP jump

Moto2 pros and cons. Pro. stays with a team he's comfortable with. Con. he's done Moto2 before and didn't do well. Con. he's done Moto2 before, so little learning benefit. Con. without Moto2 success he won't get MotoGP offers. Conclusion. go to MotoGP. 2016 is a year of changes and chances.
Agreed. He could do a baby Marquez and go from the front of Moto3 to the back of Moto2 and no longer be on the radar. The risk is greater going to Moto2 than it is going to MotoGP. True. Another major Con for going to Moto2 with his current team is that the team would be rookies there with no experience of a Moto2 bike and that would place them at a severe disadvantage. That would make it very hard to do well, and may scupper his chances of being offered another MotoGP ride.
