BSB » Brookes vows to prove he can be a ‘champion’

Vilas46: so consistente like Shaky, but 4sure Brookes deserve one better Yamaha r1 i hope he get a new model in 2015 and above all i just is bike have the same level of Power of the Kawasakis and BMW... Brookes had to go mad a lot of times just to try to keep up with the Top riders this year...
Sorry Vilas, but Brookes was well beaten by his team-mate, and it is Tommy Bridewell who deserves the new, improved R1. Brookes has had many great opportunities, but has failed to deliver what he promised.

BSB » Brookes vows to prove he can be a ‘champion’

"Josh Brookes says he is determined to prove he can be a British Superbike Champion in 2015 after disappointing end to his 2014 campaign." Sadly, his achievements never match his promises. He was "determined" to rock the world on the Tyco bike, but left the team without coming up with the goods,saying the bike wasn't quick enough. (Josh Waters took over the Tyco ride and has been performing well as a rookie on the same bike.) Moving to SMR Milwaukee Yamaha, Brookes was again talking himself up, and "determined" to take the fight to top three, but ended up ( as I predicted ) behind his team-mate, Bridewell. And JB was equally "determined" to go to WSB, but Team Managers saw through his bluster and he got no offers for a WSB ride. Sure, he's a good rider, very quick on his day, but it's a shame his mouth rides better than his arce.

BSB » ‘Emotional’ Bridewell beats Brookes to BSB ‘bronze’

Firstly, may I blow a raspberry at those who registered "disagree" at the start of the season when I posted that Bridewell would be giving Brookes a hard time before seasons end. After a racing sabbatical following Ollie's death, Tommy fished 2013 strongly and continued to improve through 2014, finishing 3rd in the championship behind two 3- and 4- time BSB Champions. And while Tommy was showing real improvements in form, Brookes continued to show that his mouth races faster than his arce. Shaun Muir must be on the edge of a dilemma. He must have already realised that he has re-signed the wrong rider. If he doesn't do everything within his power to keep Tommy in his team he will surely regret allowing him to slip through his fingers.

BSB » Brookes vows to prove he can be a ‘champion’

exloko: Tetley, sorry but in general terms Brooks are able to go beyond than Bridewell, probably is better than Bridewell, since Bridewell change team last year from Hallsall Kwak to Milwaake Yamaha i (and i think im not the only) expect a little bit more from him, as everyone expects from Brookes after his change from Suzi to Yamaha, .
Sorry exloco, but Bridewell started the season as number 2 rider while Brookes had number 1 rider status. But Bridewell finished ahead of Brookes in Championship. Brookes has reached a plateau, while Bridewell beat him and is still improving as a rider. I agree with you that Jellyson will continue as a front runner- I just wish he was 2 metres braver when going for an overtake.

BSB » Kiyonari: I’d wake up and remember my bad mistake…

Lady Luck is a fickle mistress. Kiyo had an off in practice and broke his collarbone. Shakey had an off in Race One but escaped injury. That's racing. The last three races were promising to be thrill-a-minute between Kiyo and Shakey but sadly it was not to happen. Either one of them would have been a worthy and popular champion. With Kiyo already signed for 2015 on a BMW, but Shakey's intentions not yet announced, the Japanese Gentleman may yet find himself clearing a space in his cabinet for another BSB Championship Trophy . 2014 has been a great BSB year. Roll on 2015.

MotoGP » Rossi rolls back years with ‘Island victory

Hogboy: ... and Smith gets his 1st podium in 2 years. Not sure if was because of his talent or because Iannone, Pedrosa, Marquez, Bradl, A. Esargaro, Crutchlow and P. Espargaro DNF'd. Thoughts?
On this particular day, Brad was talented enough to stay on his bike to the end while for others their ambitions outweighed their talents. Please don't de-value Brad's success because he prevailed where other didn't.

MotoGP » Valentino Rossi: It’s personal!

Now, more than ever before, the race results will be influenced by grid positions and who gets out of the first corner first. On current form, if If Lorenzo gets into the lead he'll be hard to catch, but only a fool would discount VR's determination, as CS learned at the corkscrew. I have to say that it looks like Dani has become a little demoralised by MM's runaway success, and is unlikely to finish ahead of the Yam riders. It is going to be an exciting competition for 2nd in the championship and I think we'll have to wait until the flag drops at the final race to see who has prevailed.
