MotoGP » 'Devastated' Crutchlow falls from podium on final lap

" I made a mistake and didn't finish the race, it's as simple as that, but I don't believe that it was my mistake." WTF? This is why I have trouble rooting for Crutchlow, it's your fault but it's not your fault? Last lap, halfway around and several seconds on JL99. It was your mistake Cal. I was impressed with CC35's speed. He sliced and diced his way through the pack and at one point looked like he was catching VR46. Not as bad as Edwards @ Assen in '06, but nevertheless a tough way to throw away a great result. At least there's a quick turnaround and Cal can put this behind him.

BSB » Shane Byrne crowned 2014 BSB champion

Despite the showdown, in the end the best guy won. Good for SB67 as he earned and deserved his fourth BSB Title. I'd like to see Shakey return to WSBK. He's of that caliber and on the mighty ZX10, formidable. I don't expect a move though. In many ways similar to Mladin in his run of AMA titles. Life's good in BSB, why leave? Bottom line, Byrne is fortunate enough to have a dream job making a living racing motorcycles. Must be nice. Congrats.

MotoGP » 'Happy' Rossi planning ‘soft’ race

The Yamaha's seem to be working quite well at Phillip Island. JL99's ultra smooth style fits the characteristics of the circuit well. VR46 owned this place prior to Stoner's incredible run. Vale is methodical in his preparation and setup. When the dust settles and assuming the weather cooperates, both these guy's should be standing on painted boxes. The question is, which boxes?

F1 » Lauda urges Mercedes to focus on drivers

Just watched the movie "Rush". Apparently from what I have read, a fairly accurate depiction of Niki Lauda and James Hunt and their battle for the 1976 F1 title. Good flick. Have a lot of respect for Lauda after all he endured. Dude is a strait shooter too, says what he means and means what he says. Definitely not out to win any popularity contests. I like it. As far as these modern day F1 driver's go, most of them act like a bunch of entitled, pampered diva girly men. Guy's, you get paid tens of millions of dollars to race the most incredible cars on earth, whilst globe trotting on G5's, STFU!

WSBK » Randy de Puniet to WSBK with Suzuki

I think this is a good move for all parties involved. First of all, Crescent Suzuki gets a solid proven veteran in RDP. Good character, good for the WSBK paddock and a hotie wife for the broadcast to pan to. RDP gets a great seat in WSBK. I know, the gixxer needs a revamp but with a little help for the factory, the bike can win. Randy gets a bike he can podium on and a young, aggressive teammate in AL22 to fuel his competitive juices. Sure RDP probably wanted the big show but why, to run midpack. Give him a season in the more friendly WSBK culture mixing it up. My guess is he'll be happy. After all, dude is getting paid to travel the globe and race motorcycles. Can't be all bad.
