BSB » Wilson fourth on Gearlink Kawasaki BSB bow

Ben is just magic to watch. he makes the bike wriggle and squirm as if he were on a 70's superbike. His bike looked like it was trying to swap ends as he crossed the line for his fourth. I feel that he deserved a BSS title along the way, but I think it would be a bridge too far for a BSB title. Still a great racer, and you get the impression that a podium would mean more to him (and Gearlink) that to most other people.

RR » Dunlop targets 130mph Supersport lap at Isle of Man TT

Michael goes for the headline grabbing quotes, but the reason that many fans are frosty towards him is his lack of respect for the course. He's had a good run at it in his career so far, but we all know that the TT course deserves to be feared. People like Hutchinson, Ansty and Lougher would never come out with this sort of thing. They've seen fellow competitors and friends who have paid with their lives. Michael's father and Uncle have been killed at this game, so how come he still shoots his mouth off at any opportunity? He's a low class bloke.

MotoGP » Brivio: Suzuki not in talks with Pedrosa - yet

It's going to be interesting to see who goes where. Probably more interesting that the season ahead. Pedrosa has made a solid start to the season, but he (and Honda) will want to keep that going . Anything can happen to a rider, and injuries played more of a part in last year's championship that any other factor. You get the feeling that Marquez' luck will run out sooner or later, which would leave DP in pole position. That being the case, Honda would be very unlikely to release the World Champion. Which means more ****s than seats. Tricky.

BSB » Ellison confident of title challenge

James has too many off days to be a title contender. In an ordinary title arrangement, that is. With the shootout system, i think that he could come to grips and hit some winning form, which he definitely has, and challenge at the front. he's a trier and always something of a wildcard for any race win, which makes him likeable and an important competitor in BSB.

MotoGP » ‘The lap time difference was 0.3 second’

Could've been the last lap, bringing the rider into the pits. Or maybe Matt Roberts was riding it. Or me, for that matter. Maybe he meant 'It was 0.3 slower than we expected' - whatever it was they expected. The truth is, we'll never know the lap time difference between factory, satellite and these 'production' bikes until a specific experiment is done. I'd be surprised, shocked even, if a satellite bike was within 0.3 of the full-fat factory, never mind the production racer. Honda's design brief was - Slower than a satellite Honda, quicker than a satellite Ducati. Some race bike that! I think I'd be asking Honda for my money back on the basis of mis-information.
