MotoGP » Michael Laverty ‘relishing' Aprilia opportunity

ProfessorX: I guess the schedules do not conflict at all? and it's legal to risk it in two classes, and be in the "premier" class? he better not get injured. But I guess there are no expectations at the back of the grid.
There is one round that conflicts between BSB and MotoGP. The Brands Hatch end of season triple header is the same weekend as the Australian GP. I guess which one he attends depends on if he reaches the shoot out for BSB. There is no legal reason he can't race in multiple championships. The main reason it doesn't happen is related to sponsorship and team owners not wanting the rider to injure themselves elsewhere rather than rules from the organisers.

MotoGP » What did you think of BT Sport's MotoGP coverage?

I primarily watched the BBC coverage before last year and BT's offering is much better in my opinion. Not 10/10 but a solid 8. I would have rated the BBC as a 6. The good points: 1) No Charlie Cox 2) No searching the BBC website / red button to find Moto 2 and 3 3) The App is great with the on demand videos and alternative cameras during the race. On board with Marquez after he has made a slow start is awesome. 4) No Charlie Cox 5) Neil Hodgson and Gavin Emmett are great 6) Moto GP Tonight is a fun little show, sure it could be improved but I'm happy to see an hour long show about bike racing on a week night. I worry we will lose it when they are showing European football on a Tuesday night. 7) Most importantly No Charlie Cox

MotoGP » MotoGP Qatar - Free Practice (1) Results

Mark53: Good to see Jack Miller flailing away at the bottom with the s**t bikes. How did he get that ride anyway? Did his dad or someone show up with a pile of cash and give it to LCR or what? It's criminal that he's on the LCR Honda and a former world champ riding that crappy, now sponsor-less, Honda. Miller runs up in Moto3 and he gets a MotoGP ride, really? Then there is Scott Reading.....
One rider is the future and one is the past... It would be criminal if Honda were pushing the 33 year old who last won a race 9 years ago over the guy who is 20 and won 6 races last year.

MotoGP » Six things to look out for in MotoGP 2015

Codger: 7......Ducati to fight for podiums. 8......Dovi's first win.
For any of the Factory open bikes to have a chance of winning a race they need to fluke a enough dry podiums so they lose their "bonus" tyres and can use the harder compounds like Yamaha and Honda. The soft tyres wont allow them to keep up the pace for full race distance The new tyres in 2016 are probably the best chance of seeing ducati win a race.

MotoGP » Ducati GP15 set for Sepang II debut?

mrlong: I'm sure I read something at the start of last season that they would have a new bike/ significant updates about 4/ 5 races in. If they're waiting till Sepang 2 its not leaving much time if it turnsout to be another dog.
The 4-5 races thing was when they would start making changes to the 2014 bikes. These changes resulted in the 14.1 and 14.2 bikes Dovi and Ianone were riding.
