WSBK » Crashes compound point-less weekend for Laverty, Lowes

LeisuresuitLarry: Unfortunately an all too familiar picture. One of the Lowes brothers once again picking a bike up out of the gravel.
Harsh in my opinion. Any racer will tell you that in the wet, it's more or less a lottery when you have to push in the wet. With Norge going down in both races as well, I'd be looking at how much harder they had to push on the zuki than the other bikes to stay near the pace. Just a thought.

WSBK » Guintoli: This is a gamble…

Aprilia don't care which rider wins the championship as long as they do so on an Aprilia. But with MM in the "TEAM" they are not going to do that unless Marco was the one needing Guinters help. As it's the other way round, there's not a chance. Marco's ego is and always was too big. Baz let Sykes through too remember. For me, it's Sykes, unless he falls. Marco on a single bike team is the pick of the crop, but bad news on a 2 bike team when he's behind.

MotoGP » Valentino Rossi talks Aragon accident

Stick a higher kerb on the outside of the corner, so if you run long you can pick the bike up and run over the kerb, but it will cost you time to get back on track, as you would need to slow to get back on track. Not a high one, but enough to cost you time. Works on the last corner at Indy. Remember the two ducatis having to jump the kerb, but both stayed on, and Sadly Smith overtook both of them on the run up to the line. Rossi made a mistake plain and simple. Anyone that races either has or will do the same, but nobody wants to see anybody getting hurt if it can be avoided.

MotoGP » Eugene Laverty: MotoGP talks with Aprilia, Suzuki, Ducati

Seems to me that Tom will take the bike by the scruff of the neck, kick it round the track and get the best from it by bullying the bike. Perhaps the will not work on a moto GP bike, though Marquez seems to be showing it little enough respect. Who knows what is going on behind the scenes contract wise. We only get the headlines. I would prefer to see Norge on a Suzuki unless Ducati are going for a complete revamp, which is a distinct possibility with Gigi.
