MotoGP » Rossi salvages sixth after costly excursion


The comments about the Rolling Stones and Rossi have value. I don't doubt that he is the big draw. I've mentioned the merchandise. But what is that doing for MotoGP today? Nothing. I can't believe that the people who are turning up to see him are feeling anything but short changed. There'd be more value in him running on a CRT, as his teammate wouldn't be handing his ass to him week-in, week-out. I've been watching MotoGP for a couple of decades, and Rossi has been a (if not the) stand-out rider in that time. But we didn't see Schwantz and Doohan doing a greatest-hits-tour run around. If MotoGP is still trading on Rossi memories, then it is definitely up the creek.

MotoGP » Rossi salvages sixth after costly excursion


Rossi has been rubbish for Jlo, Yamaha and MotoGP this year. He starts every weekend with a guaranteed minimum 4th place finish on account of the way the equipment is dispersed in MotoGP. That might not be his fault, but that's the reality. So when he rolls in 6th, or even 4th, people are entitled to have a pop, because his attitude is one of complacency. This follows on from his riding without any heart on the Ducati - unforgivable. People pay alot of money to watch, not to mention the merchandise.

WSBK » Guintoli: I haven't been at 100 per cent...


Eugene's win-it-or-bin-it approach probably frustrates manufacturers more than anything. Eugene was a nightmare mid-season, when the decision was probably made. He knew that and improved his game no-end, as do most riders when they're looking for a job. Guinters' injury really took the wind out of his sails, but his performance and Magny Cours was very gutsy. For me, Aprilia have a very strong line up that they should be happy to stick with. BMW are the wrecker for Eugene here.

BSB » Easton confirms BSB return with PBM in 2014


Yep, someone ran a Moto2 bike at the TT a couple of years back, and there were 2-stroke pattons in the f1 race before that. I understand that there are diffferent regulations for Superbike and F1 classes. Although a superbike is going to be eligible for the F1, the reverse isn't neccessarily true. the TT is great, but it does lack in interesting machinery. The MV 675 was a revelation this year with its distinctiveness, and as it's a time trial, you have a bit more time to distinguish between the bikes.
