MotoGP » ‘Best yet to come’ for Bradley Smith


Don-R:
lynx: I will be impressed if he beats Dovi's tech3 record.
Dovi? He's got some way to go before he even equals what Crutchlow did at Tech3. #35 scored 6 podiums over his second 2 years with the team compared to Brad's 2. Smith made a big leap this year, no doubt, but this is still so far the weakest line-up in terms of results that Tech3 have had for several seasons. Good luck to him, but I think Dovi's record is going to be safe for a while.
No arguments with the Dovi cvomparison, but Cal got his podiums when he didn't have the competition Smith has. No Dukes up there, Spies nightmare year, aliens injured etc etc. Smith was unlucky in that respect to come up against enough on form and fit aliens, plus emerging Dukes, to keep him away from the podium. He was also on a bike that JL and VR didn't do so well on the previous year even when it was the best Yamaha had to offer. Lots of variables.

MotoGP » MotoGP Star of the Year vote: 9th


Yossarian:
paisan: hes better than his brother. with good machine e would win races.
Pol his younger brother has a better record in 125 and Moto2 he's a world champion, he was rookie of the year in Motogp and he's won the Suzuka 8 hours, are you really sure Aleix is the better rider ?
Pol is probably the better rider, but after a bad season needs to live up to his billing in 2016. Aleix may well have the machinery advantage.

BSB » Honda Racing retains Linfoot, O'Halloran, Tinmouth


Given your comment I'm assuming you have never raced a bike? Done some track days? Well if you have the fastest of the fastest group are probably at best mid pack at club race level. Jenny would thrash most front running club racers. BSB is a different league. Faster than Jenny? Go for it. If you do you might just realise how quick she is. Faster riders available for that ride? Almost certainly, but anyone who can put lap times in like her is proper quick.

BSB » Honda Racing retains Linfoot, O'Halloran, Tinmouth


Abefan: Has anyone here heard of the phrase " Public relations"? Do you think possibly Honda know more about selling motorbikes ( even wee girly ones, tongue in cheek) than people on here? Check to see how many days Jenny did at Honda dealerships. Pedro has had twelve years on the best bike in motogp and hasn't been champ. Is the same bitching applies to him? ( actually by me it is but that's another story). If she is riding the same spec bike as Dan and ohalloran I'll eat a caravan.
Well said. Given it is a three bike team then arguably no-one is missing out on a full on superbike ride, because no doubt there aren't three superbikes in that team.

BSB » Honda Racing retains Linfoot, O'Halloran, Tinmouth


Braap: @SmokinHaddock Nobody's slagging Jenny off. By normal standards she's super fast, she's shown dedication and commitment to the sport and seems a thoroughly decent person. The problem is that previously her bike was always an unknown but when she got the ride with Honda, that excuse went away. As it stands she is consistently at the back of the field on an official bike. There are always mitigating factors (crew, electronics etc etc) but always being at the back on that bike isn't really what anyone is after. If I were Havier Beltram I would be asking for a little more.
Don't disgaree with you. It was just putting right the suggestion that a track day rider could get anywhere near any BSB rider. Some of these folks should try lining up on a grid with a natonal rider. You soon learn what talent and commitment is!

MotoGP » Official: Casey Stoner returns to Ducati


Codger: Hindsight is magical. The lad gave at least 10 hard reasons on why he left MotoGP, and has forgotten them all. ( for those who have forgotten those reasons as well, check them out. If memory serves it was around 10 days after he flatly denied that he was contemplating retirement. )
He hasn't returned to GPs. He has signed as a test rider. Probably get paid a shed load for having fun on a GP bike. No brainer really, just like going to spend time with his young family was also a smart move.
