MotoGP » Valencia MotoGP test times - Monday (Final)


Seeing Melandri on that list for Aprilia I guess means he's the 2nd Aprilia factory rider. Unless he's been asked to help as a test rider but if he was they'd note him as a test rider like they did with the 3rd Aprilia rider. In terms of test times it's awfully early to make any sense of them. I guess for new riders coming in you can get a little idea of how they compare to their teammates but these results may change as they get more testing in next year.

MotoGP » Rossi: My bad luck is called 'Marc Marquez'!


Great job by Marquez and while it would have been nice to see Rossi win this last race at least he was competitive until the last few laps where Marquez started pulling away. I knew Rossi would do better but earlier this season Marquez had the bike advantage without a doubt and even a mental advantage over all riders. Second half of the season Rossi, JL and DP started eating away at bit but by that time the championship was basically already won. Good job on Rossi passing DP and keeping JL behind him till the end of the season. You have to realize that after the disastrous start Jlo came on strong once his confidence came back. Without a doubt it won't be easy for Rossi next season as Marquez is on a high and will continue to improve and JL and DP will want to show that they are still top riders in the class. Plus you have to figure that Ducati will start keeping in races longer and therefore be more competitive.

MotoGP » Final 2015 MotoGP rider line-up


Without any word from PBM it's likely their out of MGP. Aprilia at this time is the only team to have one seat open eventhough Crash speculates it will be Melandri I think they'd be better suited with a different rider. Not that it would happen but it would be fantastic to see them get Biaggi to ride the bike for 1 - 2 years but just like Bayliss will stay retired I think the same for Biaggi. Why not throw Guinters a bone for winning the WSB championship? But like others why settle for 10th or lower in MGP when you can challenge in WSB.

WSBK » Aprilia boss celebrates WSBK titles as MotoGP beckons


It would be ashame if Aprilia pulled out of WSB for Motogp which more than likely they'll just be grid fillers. Plus a company that isn't selling enough of it's RSV4s from it's showrooms. It should rethink it's strategy. If you put enough effort and win another championship (i.e. 2 in a row and could be 4 in 6 yrs) could help with sales. Even going to a factory supported team may not be enough to beat Kawi, Honda and a hungry Ducati effort. Also isn't it nice that Aprilia is giving Melandri who doesn't listen to team orders, rides dangerously and didn't win the championship a spot on the Aprilia Motogp team while they're essentially be booting it's WSB Champion out the door. Nice.
