WSBK » Phillip Island confirms 2016 WSBK date


Great to hear that PI is confirmed for 2016. But why is there such a gap from August to mid/late Sept without any races that can't be good for the championship interest. I understand having a holiday but seriously that's a bit much lads get back to work. Someone in scheduling should be fired for that. Also, with such a runaway points lead and this lack of races I'm sure most have written this season off as there is not much reason to continue watching. I don't believe I'll be saying this but Motogp has been getting better over the past few years since Rossi's return to Yamaha while WSB since Biaggi's departure has been going down hill rapidly and not in a good way. Is Dorna trying to kill this series?

MotoGP » Hayden: Rossi factor will be something special


Good points by Hayden about this upcoming race. But to discuss a bit about him. I've never been a big fan of his going back to his AMA days as I never thought he was that talented. Yes talented for a national series or even for WSB but never for Motogp. But all that said, it's been a bit sad seeing him wallow on the back end of the grid. I know he's stated that he enjoys the prestige of being in Motogp (and probably doesn't mind the paycheck) but still think he should go to WSB or back to U.S. national series. Going home would be great to give that newly revised series a little more star power it lacks. He's got to realize his time in Motogp is nearing the end, he should have a talk with Edwards.

MotoGP » Rossi: There will be a lot of pressure on me


I think there is some validity to V6's analysis of Rossi's development prowess on the Yam and it's benefits to Jlo. And to Hansie's point I think as both are successful at this track it will be close and to the article's point that this adds pressure to Rossi being home that's a no duh! As long as Lorenzo doesn't get a special edge treatment tire and baring an over enthusiastic young Spaniard making a mess or other unforeseen mechanical/tire issue I think Rossi has a good chance of winning. Rossi enjoys the pressure and enjoys performing well in front of the home crowd. Hope for a good clean and enjoyable race. Go Rossi!!!

MotoGP » Rossi: There will be a lot of pressure on me


Frontbrake while I appreciate your enthusiasm there are too many races left for Rossi to just sit back to pick up 2nd and 3rd places. The more he can win and finish in front of Jlo the better for his chances at #7 or #10 depending on how you count it. Also Jim, I don't think Jlo is that fragile mentally but if Rossi wins at tracks Jlo has a usual advantage then that will eat into his confidence. But all that said if Rossi can pick up another 5 to 10 points that will definitely be gooood for Champiooonship.

MotoGP » MotoGP Silverstone - Race Results


Joe I guess Kevin Schwantz is eating the statement you noted below I saw an interview with at the beginning of last year with Kevin Schwantz, somebody asked him if Rossi could still ge competitive. He said no, he might get a podium or two before he retires but he'll certsinly never win another race. I guess Kevin was jealous or narrow-minded in his view of Rossi and his abilities. I guess he bought into all the hater ideas that came to a boil when Rossi had his bad experience at Ducati and slow recovery when he returned to Yamaha. Rossi has shut up many a detractor, nicely done Vale keep up the good work!
