WSBK » Sykes seeks momentum for 2016 fightback

It was plain to see that Sykes was hostile to Rea at the start of the year, and regretfully Tom let himself become absorbed in his own torment. He put some agressive moves on Jonny and it is to Jonny's credit that he was not goaded, he did not retaliate and he just got on with the job and piled up the points. Several times during the season Tom voiced complaints about this and that until he had convinced himself that he was being treated unfairly. I have to say that Rea did not rise to argue and kept his cool and his concentration. Tom needs a fresh attitude for next year. He can't rely on Jonny falling off as his motivation.

MotoGP » Rossi accuses Marquez of helping Lorenzo

Think back to the Rossi versus Gibernau races and remember VR later admitting that he and Sete had been friends but VR decided that he needed to find an opportunity to break that friendship to help him win the championship. When the opportunity to break the friendship arose VR played it cleverly. Sete was wrong-footed. It puzzled him because he thought he was blameless and it unsettled him. VR went on to win the championship and Sete never won another MotoGP. What VR said then, and what he has just said, was said for a reason, and that is to divert MM's and JLo's focus, and to give VR an advantage. He has laid upon them another factor to worry about while he himself concentrates on getting every possible advantage on- and off-track. VR knows that the media will now concentrate like vultures on MM and JLo's every move and that being under such intense scrutiny will increase the pressure on them. Brilliant psychology from VR.

MotoGP » Kent ‘frustrated’ at missing title chance

I don't think the 6-spot penalty was a major critical factor in Danny's race as the slipstream effect alone can make up several places on the straight for a decent rider on a decent bike. What really surprised me was to see Danny scrapping for places in the leading group, risking a spill to gain a place which was bound to be quickly taken away by anyone (or any two) close enough to get a tow from him. Maybe he was aiming to get to the front and win by 8 seconds or so like he did earlier in the year? With all that was at stake at the start of this race, I expected that Danny would easily make it onto the tail of the leading group and stay safe in that position until those in front of him had tired themselves swapping places. He has done that before, playing the waiting game, saving his tyres, then using what he had saved for a break on the last two laps. I think that using those proven tactics would have seen him wearing the crown on Sunday.

MotoGP » MotoGP 2016: Rider line-up

ElbowDown93: If there are no "OPEN BIKES" next year then......What will teams that are regularly at the back of the grid be called ,just the customer teams ??? what will their bikes be refered to from next year on(the slowcoach bikes)? If their is no "OPEN CATEGORY CHAMPIONSHIP" next year then what will be theses teams playing for ?....... and with Aprilia bringing new bikes next year it'll become more difficult for the customer teams to score points ... There will be 16 bikes ( Factory and Satelites only, no satelites for aprilia and suzuki)....
Factory Teams with Factory bikes and Customer Teams with Customer bikes seems a plausible option ?

MotoGP » Lorenzo: I'm the fastest, bad luck is costing me

Dutch69Camaro: To me it is pretty Obvious: Lorenzo chose to run the front winglets like the Ducati's...this helped him when the track was wet to put some extra pressure on the front tire but came to bite him when the track started drying! Nothing to do with bad luck, just a gamble that turned out bad
If that is in fact what he's referring to (gamble on the winglets destroyed the tires) then it is in fact bad luck that the gamble didn't pay off and not necessarily his riding. It is very possible that his tires were the worse due to those winglets and not his riding. He does make a lot of excuses and takes little blame. But this time he might be justified... Just saying... WLF!!!!
Yes, it’s possible the winglets were the problem, but VR’s tyres looked shredded just as badly. Every rider gambles on set-up. Some get it right, some get it wrong. That's experience and good judgement, not luck.
