WSBK » Haslam has 'hazy' memories of 'awesome' Laguna Seca


"specially revised schedule", I.e. a blatant shameless cash grab to try and make more people buy tickets for Saturday. I couldn't make it that day anyway, and now knowing my money will only be good for one race on sunday I won't be going at all. What about all the people that were presold more expensive Sunday tickets who now get to enjoy your specially revised schedule? Great business plan you greedy a*holes, your plan to kill WSBK is getting off to a great start.

RR » Cummins completes Milwaukee Yamaha line-up


Don't know why TAS was worried with the publicity stunt that is Josh Brookes so much. Cummins is a full scheduled road rider who still has pace but hasn't had a healthy season since the crash at the Verandah in 2010. The incident at the NW200 this year wasn't his fault and he's shown more guts than I ever could through all of it. I'm a Suzuki guy but good luck to him next to William.

RR » Guy Martin to remain with Tyco Suzuki


"The 31 year old TV star...." Wow sounds like this article was written by Michael Dunlop! Martin has an impressive tally of road racing results at the Ulster, Southern 100, and Scarborough, but I don't think he'll get the respect from his peers until after a TT win. As for Tyco, I hope they're not too concerned over the publicity stunt that is Brookes riding the TT to forget about returning Cummins. He has the speed, everyone knows that, he just needs to be healthy for the first time in three years.

MotoGP » Magneti Marelli in four-year MotoGP ECU deal


My reaction to this is mixed. As a top flight category I am philosophically opposed to corralling teams under spec equipment, but I've seen just how much modern electronics have tamed the premier class in the last 5-10 years. It's gotten to the point where if your electronics package malfunctions then the rider has almost zero control over the bike (Hayden in Portugal comes to mind). Electronics have neutered the premier class to the point where someone like Pedrosa has become dominant sheerly because he weighs under 120lbs. Twenty years ago a guy like Pedrosa would have never made it out of 250s because he just didn't have the mass to control the bike because it was left up to the rider. Now his weight has had the inverse effect and made him one of the riders to beat because of modern electronics. In the past this was nothing to be ashamed of. Angel Nieto made a career out of 50-125cc racing, he was brilliant at it, but his body just wasn't really made for 500cc premier class ridin
