MotoGP » Espargaro fuming after Redding clash

You've hit the nail on the head there Codger, how can Pol be upset with his apology on Twitter, he hung his washing out to dry there in the first place. Kids and social media eh, lol. It was a racing incident, get over it, it's part of riding an out of control machine at high speed in a big bunch of people vying for the same piece of track. Maybe Scott should've apologised sooner in person but Pol's such a drama queen (as we've just seen) I can see why he might have been waiting a bit. Anyway, by letting himself get wound up Scott's probably got the psychological advantage now.

F1 » Fernando Alonso to miss Australian Grand Prix

I had a nasty concussion when I was club bike racing in 1998, head butting the tarmac on a relatively slow corner. They wouldn't let me ride for a month because of lingering symptoms. Every time I thought I was OK I'd then get a relapse for no apparent reason, it was horrible. I was eventually given the all clear but even now I still get the odd momentary sharp headache at the point of impact. Head/concussion injuries are weird.

WSBK » PICS: Troy Bayliss brings ‘21’ back to WSBK

Troy battered everyone in BSB without knowing a single track before he got here. I was at his first ever test session at Snetterton when I was riding at a BEMSEE Friday test day. GSE had the circuit to themselves for an hour and Troy came in a second faster than Hodgson who'd been riding there for years (and 11-12 seconds faster than the fastest MRO Powerbike boys). Jaws were hitting the floor. Troy is a superhero, the only thing going against him is lack of time on a bike, and then we don't know how often he rides in his spare time so could be interesting. Looking forward to it, even if he is just gonna make up the numbers, but I just don't see him doing that!

MotoGP » Redding: My aim is to beat Crutchlow

Give the lad a break, as well as Miller, Redding hasn't used the electronics yet either. I think he's being realistic, Cal has to be the obvious target to begin with, Scott's target last year was an ex world champ on equal machinery. I bet MM didn't come into his rookie season without having ever ridden the RCV. Repsol have been grooming him since he was pretty much born, there's no way anyone could ride a bike like that from the word go without previous testing, no matter how talented.

MotoGP » Redding: I’m starting from scratch

Ummm, historically the way it works right, is that a rider comes up with a new groundbreaking style that trumps everything everyone already knew, then you have to learn it then develop it to beat it. Sheene beat everyone cos he got off the bike more, Roberts beat him cos he slid the back wheel, Spencer beat him cos he slid both wheels etc etc.... Jump a few decades... Rossi developed the Doctor's dangle or whatever it was that made him better, MM completely changed the racing lines to a way everyone thought previously was slow! Scott hasn't even started readjusting the bike or changed the electronics yet! Give him a break. What he is doing though is learning the style to equal MM, he then needs reinvent it to beat him. Even Rossi's having to do the same.

F1 » Magnussen admits snub ‘difficult to take’

It's hardly a snub, he's still driving for them, he could've been out on his ear and stuck in a budget team. Crash wrote 'snub' to sensationalise the headline, Kevin just said he was disappointed not to be competing but pleased to still be with McLaren. You never know RD may have fought to keep him, there's obviously a lot of Honda politics here we're just unlikely to find out what actually went down.

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.
Yep absolutely. I thought the rules regarding tyre quantities were written based on what was practical for Bridgestone to supply as well as levelling the field? If they had inters this problem wouldn't exist. 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.
