MotoGP » MotoGP ‘not far’ from 2016 agreement

The concession class is quite advantageous now but hopefully the point is to get the teams (Suzuki and APE) up to speed quickly, have them get those podiums and then immediately into the the regular Factory class. With the progress Ducati are making, I wouldn't be surprised if Ducati changes to factory class before half the season. I'm sure they will get the podiums sooner than later. Does anyone know if this years podiums count to 2015? If not they should. Suzuki and APE don't seem that far off either, and with some luck they might also find themselves in parc ferme sooner than later. Ideally they both get enough podiums to automatically move them to Factory Option before season end. Ironically, with all the millions of dollars these teams spend, they only go about a second and half quicker than superbikes at given circuits.

MotoGP » Ben Spies: There’s one kid who could cut it…

Ben makes valid points if not obvious ones. However, one point I strongly disagree with is saying Dorna should start a series in the States. It's not Dorna's responsibility to bring up AMERICAN riders, it's America's responsibility to do so. If no one in the states has that drive and business motivation to create a good series in the states, the lack of riders from the US will continue. There's no one to blame, to create a successful series is massive amounts of dedication, money and time. It wouldn't be overnight thing. Problem is greed and arrogance. Both in Canada and US. The main series' are all run by the old guard, old farts who can't let go of "their days" and still run the sport like it's 1993.

WSBK » Loris Baz - Q&A

I agree with the top comments. Baz is the most cool headed rider out there. He is never overly aggressive. In fact, in my mind, he is not aggressive enough. He almost always has the out right pace. Great responses in the interview, I really hope the crash doesn't get to his head much. He's taking way too much slack for it from the media.

WSBK » WSBK Imola - Race results (2)

Very impressive by Rea with that dinosaur of a bike, especially on a fast track. Also impressed at the CBR's trap speeds, they definitely did good on the bike over the winter. Now I gotta wait 7 days to watch the full races. Also impressed with if Bimota was able to compete with points, they would have placed first of the Evo bikes in Race 2 with Badovini and Iddon would have placed 2nd in race one. They need to sell them bikes quick! Next year they should be able to compete right up there as it seems their chassis and electronics hit the ground running.

MotoGP » Suzuki wraps up Austin test, top Open pace

Hopper, did you see his gut? He's got a pity ride in BSB right now, if he makes good, great, but he's definitely not the right guy to be in MotoGP. I think Showa/Nissin/Honda would want to retain Bautista because he's doing great work for them. Hayden doesn't seem to have the raw pace anymore, Redding is already faster than him. I'm afraid Hayden's days are limited in MotoGP although maybe he'll get a test. IMO if Suzuki is fielding two riders. Depending on how E.Laverty does on it in 6 weeks, he should be one of the riders. I'm betting RdP has in his contract at least 1 year as a rider, so that would be on OK pair, but Suzuki should also seek young blood as well, Tito Rabat perhaps.
