MotoGP » Nicky Hayden visits WSBK


since his WC win, he hasn't beaten a team mate over a season - the first rule, as we often hear. He'd be coming to WSB with alot to prove, as he seems to every year. I think he'd be a great addition to the series and pull some serious attention in the paddock, but I'm not sure the wnis would come forth. And the Honda WSB effort would be better avoided, that's for sure. He's had enough bike excuses in the last few years.

MotoGP » Flashback: Rossi, Marquez at Laguna Seca 2013


The whole issue has an air of personalities verses the rule book. You'd have to think that if it was other riders doing this, the authorities might've curtailed it. when we are looking at previous incidents for guidance, it seems that some of these practices weren't nipped in the bud and that there's an air of 'anything goes'. And by saying that 'this was comparable to that, maybe a bit tougher' ends up with compounding levels of recklessness. Track rules don't apply differently between the first corner and the last. We have to give these guys some leeway in their explanations, as English isn't their first language. But without splitting hairs, the practice of using other riders as a brake into a corner is going to end badly, and soon.

MotoGP » Espargaro: Looks like anything goes on last corner...


Rossi did protect his lead, but he didn't initiate contact. Did he hit reverse? He knew that it was risky, as he had no control over which part of his bike was hit. Could've been a speed sensor, a la Pedrosa! So maybe he played some percentages, but with a championship on the line, I can't see it. We need to see Marquez in the gravel with someone who can give him a pasting before anything is done. Surely the Pedrosa - Simoncelli incident made some precident, but as Pol says, last lap and the rules don't seem to apply!

RR » TT 2015: Dunlop ditches Yamaha for BMW!


you can't give the fireblade much credit, just the riders that honda gobble up, and the loyalty of the best teams. On any kind of level playing field, the fireblade is a bucket. The tt and suzuka are the least regulated motorcycle racing classes, and it's more about the wallet. QED, the fireblade is competitive. ask johnny rea or sylvan guintoli, to name two. anyway, isn't this story about yamaha & bmw?
