MotoGP » Bradley Smith - Q&A


I mention how long I have been watching the sport because it is relevant. I can't can't recall a single incident of a world championship motorcycle team deliberately breaking the technical rules for almost as long as there has been a championship. That is relevant and a valid argument. Just saying "it must happen" without a single example being given is a pretty poor response. Instead of hitting the disagree button, how about giving some examples of it happening, ever, in the history of the FIM championships. That is 1949 onwards and thousands of teams and riders in multiple classes. Are you all saying that they have got away with it for over 60 years and so every single win and championship won is suspect? Bradley will be asked the same thing by the FIM. Where is his proof. He will end up apologizing.

MotoGP » Bradley Smith - Q&A


The examples of cheating being given are not world class events. Of course you had 350cc engines in the 250 class a club level. Other dodgy practices went on all the time in lesser scrutinized events. But we are talking about MotoGP and Moto2. Please give me an example of somebody even being accused of cheating and then the scrutineers not giving the OK at world level. I bet not a single "expert" on here can quote one in the history of the World Championship. In Moto2 the engines pass scrutiny and are then sealed. So how do you get past that? No answers? Didn't think so! If the bike gets a podium position then it is weighed after parc ferme. Unless the mechanics are magicians they can't do much there. So where do these miraculous cheats occur? I stand by what I said, there is no cheating and has never been in World Motorcycle racing as far as I can remember which is a lot longer than most of you have been alive.

MotoGP » Bradley Smith - Q&A


Ian, as a fan of Motorcycle racing for nearly 50 years I find you comment ignorant, rude and just plain wrong. In one paragraph you have accused all of the top mechanics and bike designers, as well as the crew chiefs and team owners, of cheating. Yu have accused Dorna and the FIM of being incompetant. How do they get these cheats past scrutineering each race meeting? How do they fool the seals on the engines and the weighing of the bikes? How, in all the years I have been following the sport, have they managed to do this? I can't recall anybody, apart from a rider who cleaned his grid spot, been brought before the authorities on a charge of cheating. A single incidence in almost 50 years! I suggest you start watching a different sport. I suggest Professional Wrestling, that is never rigged!

MotoGP » Bryan Staring gets Gresini MotoGP ride


Compare those who win the Aussie championship with BSB winners. I know which one produces world champs. Bayliss only managed 2nd in Supersport and then 3rd and 2nd in the Superbikes. So he was never an Aussie champ but won BSB on his second attempt. Troy Corser won the Aussie championship which got him a ride in the AMA championship which he won before moving to WSBK. Curtain won the Proddies, Supersport and Superbikes before going overseas. He won the Aussie FX championship this year. Andrew Pitt won the Aussie Supersport and came 2nd in the Superbikse before going oveseas. Vermeulan only came 8th in the Aussie Superbikes but he was the first privateer. It was enough for Barry Sheene to organise his rides in the BSB Superstock and Supersports where he came 4th and 5th and was snapped up by Ten Kate.

MotoGP » Bryan Staring gets Gresini MotoGP ride


Here we go, comparing riders of different classes and claiming one is better than another. Once again the crash.net experts know more than the people whose job it is to spend the millions of dollars of sponsorship money and run a MotoGP team. What they looked at are his results when racing against bikes of similar performance, i.e the STK1000. His race craft is second to none and his ability to ride around bike issues are what stand out of this STK1000 season. He is a nice bloke who tries hard on whatever machinery he is given. He more than qualifies for this chance and it has nothing to do with him being Australian. Since when has any Australian been given assistance by the F.I.M? When an Aussie gets a ride they are guaranteed to have earned it.
