RR » Former TT star Shaun Harris 'critical' in hospital


I'm amazed and slightly bemused that he went back to any type of racing. His crash was so serious on the Island that anyone else would've parked it. I feel sorry for him, and especially his family, but it comes across as kind of reckless. When you're in a high speed road racing accident, you should (in a split second) make a pact that if you see the other side of this, you're staying out.

WSBK » Lowes’ focus turns to Thailand after first round issues


When you have two bites at each track in WSB, you need to have something to show for the weekend. His teammate gave the bike a good introduction, and you feel that Alex is already on the back foot here. He had many similar weekends last season, which were attributed to the Suzuki. Alex could be considered lucky to be in the team that he's with, and he needs some podiums this year, as well as show that he's able to gather useful points when things aren't going his way.

MotoGP » Crutchlow talks electronics, Redding, Marquez


SR is faster than CC. And the reason he'll stay around is that he's seen as someone who might cope with MM in the future. Their Moto2 careers didn't quite synchronise, but if Pol has another year like last, I could see the factory Yamaha team giving Scott some serious consideration. This interview is a love letter to honda, pleading for some assistance. Which he won't get, especially when the Repsol team is in the mire. It would appear that Ducati are the best factory for giving support to the second string teams. When things are tough for the factory boys, Honda and Yamaha go into lock down.

MotoGP » Redding: I was just getting faster and faster!


Very positive noises thus far, but get some points on the board and then we'll be talking. If Scott keeps his head down, Dovi is looking quite wobbly, and ducati have the form to give riders a chance at the top table. If nicky and Scott continue as they've started (I know it's only March), the disgrace that was Honda's 2015 customer bike will be blazingly clear. They should be reimbursing the teams.

MotoGP » EXCLUSIVE: Cal Crutchlow - Q&A


" I'm sure they'll pass the stuff on to us" - you are? It's lucky that you have got a hobo look, as it might make you less conspicuous when you're going through the bins at the back of the Repsol garage. Bigging up the greatness of the Ducati is kind of ironic given his failure at the top table. His move to Honda could hardly have been worse timed, with hindsight. he's got the pray that the Honda comes out of the traps blazing, or else his season will slide into mediocrity like in 2015. HRC really don't care after the contract has been signed, as we've seen with the whole 'customer bike' palarva. I reckon he'll be third-placed brit this year, which will be the beginning of the end for Cal in this class.
