WSBK » Rea staying in WSBK with Honda?


@ TalentFan You seem to forget Dovi graduated to Repsol from the Jir Scot Honda. Of course, it was a long time ago. I think he was the last before Spies who did it. But your theory is right, it's very hard to get a factory ride for a satellite rider. It's only possible to do it with outstanding results - and a good timing is needed, because there aren't often free seats at factory teams.

WSBK » Rea staying in WSBK with Honda?


Will he ever be in MotoGP? If he wants, maybe he should accept riding a CRT or production machine. Every year the best riders of Moto2 move up, and they take the 'factory' -as the article says- bikes. And there is another thing which is never mentioned. Crutchlow, Smith, Redding and likely Michael Laverty will be in MotoGP next year. Eugene wants to move too. That's five British riders. There are six Spanish riders at the moment. A lot people used to say 'another Spanish rider', now they could say 'another British rider' as well.

WSBK » Turkish double delight for Laverty


Great weekend by Eugene, until Sunday it didn't seem he will be so commanding. But it wasn't good to see a grid being so slim. Without the wild-cards it would have been only 13 riders. Maybe only 86 and 79 spectators in race one and two, but how many thousands in the Supersport race? This round is likely the only place where the Supersport had more attention than Superbike.

WSBK » Elias to Red Devils Aprilia, Fabrizio to Honda?


@ rdc If Fabrizio is peaked and he doesn't deserve the ride, what do you say about Elias? Fabrizio is the most experienced rider in WSB field (by the number of races), and he has results a lot of others not. In 2009 he was the only one who challenged Spies and Haga regularly. Since then he was on the podium with every team he raced for. But the teams didn't keep him. Of course he is inconsistent, but in a championship like this, in a satellite team sometimes you can fight for the podium, and the next time you can't get higher then 10th.
