WSBK » Sykes: I wasn’t prepared to gamble


If we can look at the podium, at the riders who pushed that bit harder and benefited were those with little to lose. In fact. it puts their heads above the parapet for next season, and with at least one less manufacturer-supported team, seats are at an even greater premium. Tom might just've had that feeling that things weren't going his way this weekend, especially after the superpole debacle, so he brought it home both races and kept well in touch. The championship is simmering along nicely, I think we can all agree.

MotoGP » Pedrosa reveals complete collarbone fracture


I didn't initially like Dani when he came along to MotoGP. But he seems like the most level headed of them all. I dislike Puig in his corner, but I think Dani would enjoy winning the title more than anyone else, and for that reason I hope it happens for him this year. The pressure and expectation does seem to have got him to this point, though, and I'm sure it's now-or-never. It could be the first interesting title run-in since 2006.

WSBK » BMW announces WSBK withdrawal


Perhaps being naive, I'm not sure of the impact of this. WSB is likely to reduce costs by reducing complexity and the scope of allowed modifications. So if they're still making and updating the S1000RR, what's the difference to us? If the class gets closer to Superstock regulations, we might see all manufacturers represented and make access to the world stage more achievable. Also, hasn't every manufacturer 'withdrawn' from WSB at some stage over the last 10 years? I think so, but I could be corrected.

BSB » Josh Brookes - Q&A


Quite a straight shooting interview there! He'll not be getting a Honda ride anytime soon, and if you want to win a TT, that's your best chance. I was very critical and angry when josh first appeared on the bsb scene for the reasons he has mentioned, but it's good to see that he hasn't forgotten them. When he hit Simon Andrews, I was particularly peeved. Life goes on, though. Good on yer, Josh!
