RR » Dunlop confirms roads exit from BMW Motorrad


I can understand the BMW shift here. Honda probably felt the same way at the end of 2013. MD is a Heck of a rider, but the manufacturer will not get any coverage or enough feedback for their efforts, and it really isn't worth it for them. Guy Martin is the antithesis of that. No wins (yet), but he'll commend the team, bike and tyres when he wins. MD will skulk off and hint that it's him and nothing else. A position of sorts, but he'll end up scraping the barrel for a ride. Also if Guy wins on this bike, the after effects will be hard to estimate.

BSB » Brookes vows to prove he can be a ‘champion’


Bridewell has got third, but at no stage was he a title contender. We know that the yamaha was a mile off this year, yet Josh won races on it. Josh left a second rate suzuki bike behind this year, and we were able to clearly see what a hound it is at bsb. The yamaha might not hit the ground running next season, but the shootout will allow for it to be a title contender at end.

WSBK » Baz plays down Kawasaki team orders call


Baz not only toe-ed the line, but took the moral highground from Sykes, who has been whiney and ****y about his teammate throughout the season. To the extent that I would rather he didn't win the title this season. I'm a big kwaw fan and was delighted about last year, but Baz is the man this time around! Such a cool bloke. Tom should be glad that Baz is changing classes.

BSB » Brookes opts to stay in BSB for 2015


depends on how much development the new bike needs. Maybe it's less of an issue with the bsb regulations as they are? I like Josh a lot and he gives 10 10ths all the time, which is why he's been off a few times this year. But we've seen how far back the Suzuki is without him, which gives a good measure of his ability. A worthy competitor.

MotoGP » Lorenzo: I never regret anything in life


The championship needs a firing-on-all-cyclinders Jorge. I was never a fan in the early days of his career, but he stood up to Rossi and won, and for that he deserves great respect. He has humility now also, and his verdict on MM here is honest and gracious. We'd all like to see someone really take it to MM, and i don't see anyone in the world being able to do that that JL.

MotoGP » Loris Baz looking for a ride


If Baz can't get a seat after a superb wing-man role this season, there's some severely poor people choosing riders this year. His mistake in crashing and knocking TS off was way avoerblown, and the points he has kept off the Aprilia duo are still overlooked, especially by TS. No Honda WSB next year? I reckon Baz is easily among the top six riders in wsb, and deserving of a seat on a competitive bike. He's probably the most exciting rider in the paddock this year, and knows how to score points with it.
