MotoGP » Kent, Lowes British wins unmatched since '77

MrSmart: Nationalism is a dangerously stupid sentiment.
Only if you disrespect riders of other nationalities. Isn't this part of what drives people to want to win? I think Brits have done a bloomin' good job of supporting riders of other nationalities over the last 37 years. We respect talented bike racers regardless, just look at how popular foreign racers are in BSB. But it doesn't half make a change to have some of our lads to cheer on again at the top levels of Moto3, 2 and GP.

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.
