BSB » Hopkins heads off title fighters in FP2


Remember, this is where JH21 put the Rizla Suzuki prototype on pole. John goes fast at Assen. Man's track. I believe John needs 2014 to get back up to speed. Let's don't kid ourselves, Hopper has as much or more racecraft than the guys in the showdown. He has success at the pinnacle of the world stage, MotoGP. Philip Neill and the powers that be would be wise to retain John Hopkins services in 2015. Have a successful weekend @ Assen JH21.

MotoGP » Victorious Valentino Rossi 'at the best of my career'


VR46 looked like Rossi circa 2004. As mentioned, the way Vale countered immediately was key and the acceleration the M1 displayed in those moves was encouraging for the Yamaha garage. You have to figure the home race provided a little extra adrenaline for the goat, but the way Vale is presently riding, another win could very well come this year. Phillip Island? VR46, too legit to quit.

WSBK » Giugliano: Always a risk riding at 150%


@Joeski "No doubt he is fast and many teams would pay big bucks for a fast rider....slow smooth riders don't win....look at Haslam..good in his day but never fast and rarely wins...Nicky Hayden is the same...guintoli too....these are not winning riders although all really good....." The only problem with your logic is NH69 is a former MotoGP champion and his resume speaks for itself. You really can't group a world champion in with a bunch guys that aren't, well, world champion.

MotoGP » Scott Redding to Marc VDS Honda


Good for SR45, he got his wish, the coveted factory spec Honda. I would like to see Scott succeed in the new endeavor but I have a few questions. Marc VDS said they put the funding together at the last minute so unless they land a deep pocketed sponsor, wouldn't they be an under funded team? You have to have dough to compete at this level. Next, PE44 won twice as many races as Redding last year and is now on basically a factory spec M1. Pol is fighting for top five's at best. I realize the Honda is supposedly the better package but what makes everyone think Scott is going to be anymore of a factor than Espargaro or Bradl for that matter? Not hatin', I'd love to see a stacked grid but you gotta wonder.

MotoGP » Redding reacts to Gresini Aprilia deal


If SR45 was such a hot commodity, teams would be lining up to sign him. He's good, but not a generational talent. Scott has been in GP for five years. Last year he showed us something in Moto2 but he didn't close the deal. Bradl did win the Moto2 title and has shown flashes as well. Comparisons? I admire the kids swagger and confidence and hope he gets the seat he deserves. Scott is young, which is good. But does anyone seriously think if Scott was on a Repsol Honda now, he'd be doing what MM93 is? Scott, just don't start emulating CC35's self gloss. That act is tired.

MotoGP » Wet wizard Dovizioso has upper hand at Misano


Considering AD04's sole MotoGP win came in the driving rain, it's really no surprise Andrea's wet weather prowess puts him atop the time sheets. After all, rain is the great equalizer. It would be refreshing(no pun intended) if we had a full wet race. No doubt the rain could make things interesting and provide an opportunity for a surprise rostrum. To those who don't find an wet race to be exciting, try going fast, or in the case of professional motorcycle racers, REALLY fast, in the rain. Makes you truly appreciate the skill level these guys exhibit.

WSBK » Melandri denies WSBK title contender Guintoli


Sykes is in control. It wouldn't have mattered if MM33 pulled over, the champ would just rise to the occasion at the next race. Just like he did last year. Remember, TS66(1) lost a title by a half a point. You know that haunts him. If SG50 can't pass his own teammate(w/o taking him out), well then he doesn't deserve to win the race, or the championship for that matter.

WSBK » Giugliano: Always a risk riding at 150%


DG34 as well as CD7 are doing an admirable job getting the Panigale program turned around. Davide has a penchant for out qualifying his teammate but Chaz' smoother style seem to produce better results over the course of a race. I know this was the trendy saying circa 2005, but you cannot give more than 100%, less, but not more. Better than "at the end of the day" though.
