WSBK » Sykes perplexed by dramatic tyre drop-off


maybe he meant he wasn't expecting the tires to fall off a cliff, which they did. Honestly? Have you forgotten his level of experience? Tom has been a professional road racer for a very, very long time now. I'm serious, have a look back to when he first had an outing on a WSBK or even a MotoGP bike as I think he might've had a few rides on the Suzuki early on. As one of the other posters mentioned, this reeks of desperation. I feel for him I really do and I wish I knew more about the changes that have been made (to the bikes) this year that have upset him so much as he's been floundering from the off. Unfortunately for him this year Johhny Rea has a decent bike and is clearly head and shoulders above the whole field - except perhaps Chaz who is looking very good to. When Tom appeared on camera at the end of the race I remembered what a large part he has played in reducing my enjoyment in WSBK - they need more personalities in there - desperately!

WSBK » Sykes perplexed by dramatic tyre drop-off


Ho

ProfessorX:
RCV5: “I wasn't expecting the tyres to drop off' - Kinda weird in that virtually everyone else, including millions of viewers around the world were... Tom is slowly making us think he's been sitting in the best seat in the house for the last few years and might not actually be as good as he had us thinking he might've been I'm sorry to say...
maybe he meant he wasn't expecting the tires to fall off a cliff, which they did. I would wager those tires were pretty hazardous to be on by the end of the race. Sykes needs to do full race sims on his tires, needs to get his head around what to expect. Put in the time, start making solid calculations about pace and setup. Truly understand the risks and the benefits.

MotoGP » Pol Espargaro signs new Yamaha deal


PunkySic: Everyone commenting on how Pol was a moto2 champion and bradders didn't even win a race.. Did any of you folks pay attention to just HOW BAD the tech3 bike was back then? Bradley outrode its potential and that's why he got his Tech3 ride.
At last - somebody else that remembers how far behind that Yamaha actually was in development compared to the others at the time Bradley Smith was riding it - Tech3 and Yamaha knew it, and Bradley Smith rode it like a demon week in week out without much complaint either! Result - Tech3 ride. I hope he get's his extension from Tech3, he's done very well in such a strong field.

MotoGP » Lorenzo mocks ‘crisis’ after record pole


Give the guy a break fellas - he was very realistic in his mentioning that tomorrow you may be at the back. He's just made the personal breakthrough that he knows he badly needs and should be allowed to relish it and share that emotion. Dovi may well prove to be in this more than you currently imagine if he can get a decent first few laps in. Either way here's to a great day! And SURELY Honda must be seriously looking at some support - not competition for MM? Stoner could provide that and get a real deal for 2016 surely? If not they are idiots.
