WSBK » Sylvain Guintoli clinches 2014 WSBK title


Always liked Guinters even back in his MGP days but earlier this season it appeared he wasn't willing to push hard enough to win. But can't blame him for his strategy as it worked. Nice master class weekend to win the Championship. As others have noted that he's a nice guy and deserved the championship no matter how you look at. Better late than never to push it and he did. Nice Job!!! Can't understand why Aprilia wouldn't keep him. Will Aprilia factory team be out of the championship next year? If as the commentator's noted that Guintoli will be with Honda next year and I also heard them say that Baz will be going to Yamaha so that means they'll be back in WSB. As the rules will be changing to reduce costs and make the bikes more similar it should be an interesting 2015 season. A little early to think about next season, but again Congrats Guinters.

MotoGP » Rossi: Mistake to leave Yamaha over No.1 status


Yearby let's consider Rossi's flaws, I'd say they're very little. Yes when he was younger he'd have the silly antics after a win. While some found that annoying I thought he was being playful and really playing to his fans. As he's gotten older he's stopped that. In terms of riding, I guess he's usually slow to get to the top spot in practice and qualifying and that at times put's him into second or worse rows on the grid making a challenge for a win tougher. I know that some people said he didn't push as hard as he could especially during his Ducati days and his return to Yamaha last year. I think that was just being smart in not pushing until he was confident in himself and the bike to ride it even closer to the edge. While haters won't admit it, I think that Rossi is just as good as Marquez and Jlo as he's modified his style to push a bit harder. I think Rossi can morph a bit more and hopefully with a little more development by Yamaha he'll be fighting for wins more often.

MotoGP » Rossi: Sepang podium long time coming


Agree that longevity is one benefit of coming in second in the championship. But while I get your point that it's not winning the championship but runner up is showing in this season to your team and other fellow competitors that while someone (Marquez) may have had a great season you (in second) at least were able to fend off all other racers. The other more important benefit for a racer like Rossi is to build on that confidence and get that feeling he can compete with the young guns and especially with the top young gun on a regular basis. If he takes that into next season in the way I know he could it should be very exciting.

MotoGP » Rossi: Sepang podium long time coming


Almost an unbelievable race for Rossi. And while it's disappointing to see him lose it was great to see him challenging for the win upto the last couple of laps when you can see his tires were toast. It's telling when you can see the Honda has a little extra on the straights and it allows Marquez to ride it sideways with no negative effect. The haters would say things like, Oh he's over the hill and should retire they said, Oh he can't hang with young guns they said, Oh he can't beat his own teammate they said.Glad to see Rossi put the haters in their place. As others have said, Rossi deserves second place in the championship this year and if he did just a little better he'd have even more wins. But for me I'm happy to see him challenging consistently for wins as that shows me he's ready to win more often. I'm sure Marquez is thinking I had to only worry about Lorenzo but really it's Rossi I have to worry about. Hopefully, Rossi and Yamaha can improve just a bit more then we'll se

MotoGP » Valentino Rossi wins dramatic Australian MotoGP


Herewego, I agree this had to be the most exciting races for me this season. Partly because Rossi started back in sixth or so and made his way to the front to battle with Jlo for awhile but mainly because of all the drama with drops. Not saying seeing riders crash is a good thing which it isn't and thankfully none of the riders who crashed got hurt. But having them drop out did add intrigue into who got what place down the line.

BJR you miss the point. There is no doubt that Honda was/is the best bike out there and no doubt that Marquez has been amazing. But you have to give the Yam boys credit for pushing harder and Yamaha team credit for improving their bikes a bit. Yes a couple of races would have had different results if Marquez or Pedrosa didn't crash or get hit but that's racing. Just like when the Yamaha guys crash that makes it easier for the Honda guys, get it.
