WSBK » Bayliss back for Thailand, better prepared


Absolutely the best news. Troy has always been my favorite rider in WSB. Even at his age I think he'll show the young'ns a thing or two. But what woud be even better is to see him race the entire season. However, if that won't happen I'll take this next race. Another great reason to watch. I'm sure the ratings will take a boost as well. Good on'ye Troy make us proud.

MotoGP » ‘The GP15 is a real Ducati’


Gigi is the key for the Ducati turnaround and Rossi is one of the main reasons or causes to make the change.Haters won't give him credit but Rossi showed them that they were going in the wrong direction his first year there then convinced them to change direction. Rossi noted that he would have stayed with Ducati if he were younger cause he could have continued to help them improve and get back to winning ways but at his age he knew he didn't have the time to wait. It would have been interesting to see Rossi and Gigi work together as that would have been great but sometimes the moon/stars don't line up right. If Ducati is as good as many are speculating the season will be quite interesting.

MotoGP » Rossi ready to go: 'It will be a good season'


Foul that makes no sense so if Rossi losses the championship and comes in second place, say he loses the top spot by a couple of points, that means he'll never win it. Acutally in that scenario don't you think that means he has even more chance in 2016. Don't you think that the teams/riders that are on the top this year will be contenders for the same spots in 2016? I think the proposed rules don't change enough in 2016 to change the top order by much.

MotoGP » MotoGP: 'Never go back to 800cc'


Niki no need to bring back 990 as they can accomplish this with the current 1000 cc bikes just turn off all the electronics and let the skill of the rider determine who's better. It won't happen because most if not all the manufacturers in Motogp want to use electronics to eventually include parts of these electronics in production bikes for riders that have no skill. And to justify their ever increasing prices on their motorbikes.

Back the train up, did Gigi say that if they win a race (or multiple races) or place a couple of more times they only loose the added fuel and softer tire only? And that they'd still be able to use 12 engines or whatever the # is and continue developing the engine. That should be the first thing they lose if they start winning because it's the most important. In my opinion if they win a race or start getting podiums consistantly they should lose engine, fuel and tire advantages because they are then competitive with the other two factories. I know if I were Honda or Yamaha I wouldn't stand for that.

WSBK » Bayliss ‘excited’ by Thai level playing field


Great choice to have Bayliss in the next race for marketing but also as he's had input into the bike's development. Plus he can give better input to improve the bike then Fores can because of Bayliss' experience. Plus given time to get into racing shape and getting up to speed on the bike I think Bayliss can be competitive. I wouldn't be surprised if he gets a top 5 in this race. Given a few more races I wouldn't doubt he could compete for wins (assuming the bike is competitive enough).

MotoGP » Rossi ready to go: 'It will be a good season'


The haters and skeptics before the first race has even started have written Rossi off from winning this year or winning the championship. While I agree with others it won't be easy due to the testing gap between the Honda/Ducati and Yamaha but it's only testing and that doesn't determine the championship. If Yamaha can improve on the bike's weaknesses compared to it's competition and Rossi improves his starts and race endings I think he has a shot of winning races and even winning the Championship. Not saying he will but he just as good a chance as Marquez and Lorenzo. The Ducati's can add a wrinkle in the script so that should be interesting.

MotoGP » Rossi ready to go: 'It will be a good season'


Yes if you mean that Marquez is Rossi's enemy but really isn't Lorenzo being Rossi's teammate his first enemy. Vice-versa that Rossi is Lorenzo's enemy but granted Honda or Marquez is an enemy of both Yamaha factory riders. But it also appears that the Ducati boys will also be their enemies.

ValeRoy: The only thing that matters is winning enough races and consistency just in case he wishes to get that 10th title. Its a hard task ahead but I think Vale and Jorge...they should try adopting "The enemy of my enemy is my friend".

MotoGP » Rossi: It was a difficult day for me


What's more important is that he was less than a 10th from his teammate. I'm sure as the race rolls around Rossi will be okay to compete. Have to give props to Gigi and his crew for turning the Ducati around as the numbers that Dovi is getting is very promising for them. If this continues it won't just be Honda and Yamaha up front. As this still just testing we can't say they're back to challenging the top two marks yet until we see it an entire race or two. Could be good news for the season.
