MotoGP » Eugene Laverty evaluating MotoGP options


I don't understand why EL58 would want to go from championship contender to just another guy in MotoGP. So let's say Eugene get's the Pramac Ducat ride, what kind of results does he expect to garner on this bike? Compared to I'm sure a great seat in WSBK where he could contend for a championship. Dude is pushing thirty. Time to start thinking about winning yourself a title.

BSB » John Hopkins back on top in Donington FP2


I must say, it has taken longer than expected for JH21 to get up to speed. Truth is, Hopper took a year+ off. Bad news is Hopkins will not make the showdown. Good news is the last four venues are world class circuits where John should do well and has in the past. Fast today @ Donington, on pole riding the MotoGP Rizla suzook in '07 @ Assen. Silverstone, Brands Hatch. Both fast and fantastic tracks that should suit the GSXR's strengths. Finish strong Mr. Hopkins. Nothing better than momentum going into 2015.

WSBK » Rea pins hopes on Honda engine upgrade


I would like to see JR65 leapfrog both LB76 & SG50 and finish second in the championship. Johnny deserves some good fortune after that gnarly crash in the oil that broke his femur last year. Much like Suzuki, Honda, as well as Yamaha for that matter, need to nut up and commit to the production based series. After all, it's the most entertaining championship going.

MotoGP » Home roar for Redding, builds Factory case


“I just want to get on a Factory bike [next year] and see what I can do,” said Redding. “If I was finishing as the second Open Honda they [Honda] are not going to want me on the Factory bike. End of story. " No NH69, no problem. Prior to getting punted and re injuring his wrist at Lemans, Nick was posting better results. SR45 should have set that as a goal. Hope he gets his wish and lands a full spec RCV. Seriously, Scott will in all likelihood produce results similar to those before him on the non Repsol full spec Honda. The occasional podium., top fives, etc. He has youth on his side as well. However, been in GP for five years though with nothing that really makes him a "standout". Not true? Why the heck didn't LCR, with their new London based, deep pocketed sponsor, sign Redding? Young, charming, BRITISH. Baffling, to say the least.

MotoGP » Rainey to help run American road racing


DMG has been pathetic. Anemic schedule, minimal factory participation, no television coverage. With regards to television coverage, motorcycle road racing is such a niche sport in the US. The general public in America will watch the most embarrassing dumbed down reality tv ad nauseam. These same people will flip onto a roadrace and go, " I think this is the jerk that almost hit me lane splitting in my morning commute." On the other hand, AMA Supercross is visually extreme and can capture more peoples attention. Same reason extreme sports(Dew Tour, Redbull, etc) are popular. This is the biggest challenge for tv coverage for AMA roadracing. If the AMA could return to the way it was in early 2k, then KRAVE might be on to something.

WSBK » I expect significant improvements, says Laverty


I believe the present GSXR platform can still cut the mustard. These days it seems most of the R&D is dedicated to the electronics package and it is here where the Crescent team is lacking. The chassis is solid and EL58 commented on how well the bike handles. You don't win @ P.I. unless you have a bike that is both fast and handles well. Now that Suzuki is making it's return to MotoGP, there should be a trickle down to the GSXR line up soon. Until then, Suzuki Motor Company has to commit to the WSBK effort via the electronics program, IMHO.

MotoGP » ‘Disappointed’ Crutchlow consoled by pace, fans


"But it's nice to feel that [support] because at the moment if they'd all turned around and booed me I'd be in a worse place than I am now. But got a great reception. No doubt about that. Hopefully next year we can come back and give them something to really cheer about.” "Worse place than I am now". How so? You mean as a highly paid motorcycle racer? Geez, now I can relate. I'm not crazy about my "job" either. Ah, the entitled. Keep talking Cal.
