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.

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.

WSBK » EBR scores first points but with Pegram


I applaud EBR for giving this a go, when KTM are too chicken, BMW too cheap and plenty of others talk-the-talk, but that is all. We've seen ane enormous multi-national (pertronas) make a hash of this too, whilst not even producing a road bike. EBR have jumped in at the deep end and kudos to them for getting some points on the board. Their unconventional approach to some features is interesting technically and will help them establish an identity. What would you prefer? An aprillia engine in their own chassis? (Norton, anyone?) These guys are heros to me for really testing themselves and their products. Harley Davidson all but killed them, and here we are a couple of years later with their own bikes scoring WSB points!

WSBK » Frustrated Rea: I feel we’ve made zero progress


"Loyalist attitude" Not your fault, but in Northern Ireland, this has some different connotations....! Johnny needs some big reward from Honda for his time there, though. Probably the most talented rider in the paddock, but a long way off a title shot. It's an embarrassing lack of effort from the world's biggest motorcycle company. If it's not a factory spec. RCV for next season, Johnny, do one. Having said that, I'm sure he didn't make a move for the hound that Honda have provided Hayden, Redding et al. with this season. Woof!

MotoGP » Crutchlow calm as erratic engine ruins race


A big problemfor Cal is that Iannone and Dovi are making a fist of it. He is not. Everyone knows that luck comes and goes, but Cal's qualifying performance here was an embarrassment. Either he man's up and starts to behave like he wants it, or Ducati should do the decent thing and cut him loose. Within his two year contract, I reckon that Gigi will have the Ducati finishing in the top five every time. Cal has maybe turned his volume control down to try and still be in the team for that, but there's nothing to commend him this year.
