WSBK » Rea on top in Assen thriller


Most enjoyable and plenty going on. Tom let his emotions get the better of him and should've let that pass go by JR - that extra handful to regain position just messed up his chicane on a circuit with less than full grip off line. Some great performances for sure and fingers crossed it's looking like we might just be beginning to see what Nicky Hayden is going to bring to the party to. MVdM well received by the home crowd to despite his fall. WSBK is indeed on the climb once again. We are the winners today - roll on tomorrow!

MotoGP » Lorenzo shrugs off low grip to assume control


I think he is referring to that particular strength in which we have come to understand he excels in. He could've said 'Thats what I do best' and he would've been right to. King Kenny used to say slow in the slow corners and be fast in the fast corners, thats where it counts... JL's scientific approach and precision is confirmed by the stopwatch time and time again, most impressive and a man at the top of his game...

WSBK » Rea: All our preseason work paid off


Already making Sykes look very '2nd rider'. I actually feel quite embarrassed for him to be honest. A well entertaining race though and it's definitely looking like an interesting season. The Yamaha's will improve, as will the Milwaukee BMW's. As for the Honda's they to were looking good today. A more interesting season this year going by race 1.

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.
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 bi

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.
