MotoGP » Lowes: Watching them ride away hard to take


I honestly thought Sam rode really well all weekend. He got the best from what he had at his disposal, can't ask much more from him. That race (in those conditions) was only ever going to be won by a Kalex rider, that was obvious from very early on. I would like to see him given a crack on a bike that he can fight for the Moto2 title with. The competition is going to be very strong next year, I would say stronger than this year but on a level playing field I reckon Sam would have a realistic chance.

MotoGP » Scott Redding signs for Pramac Ducati


I'm aware Redding bashing can be something of a national pastime on here and for whatever reasons I suspect he probably jumped before he was pushed (from Marc VDS).....and he couldn't really have picked a worse weekend to state he was a better rider than Petrucci! .....but I do also think there is quite a bit of truth in what he said this weekend. The 2015 Honda has been a difficult bike and I'm sure it must not have gone down well behind closed doors when their reigning world champion ditched it for last years model. Doesn't look as though the satellite riders were given that option, which is a shame. This years Desmo has generally been much stronger than of recent years and if the Pramac ride does come with factory support then this could just work out? I genuinely believe Scott is a much better rider than we have seen this year but one more year like 2015 and he'll be out of the GP paddock, he has to make this opportunity work.

MotoGP » Moto3 Silverstone - Race Results


It is disappointing Kent's victory seems to have been buried in this site, I actually had a job to find this! It was a stellar ride from him today and it was good to see so many soggy Brits hanging around to watch and cheer him on. If he manages to nail the big one (although it's looking very promising nothing is guaranteed in this sport) then he deserves some serious coverage IMHO and not just from within the motor racing press. I somehow doubt this will happen though...

MotoGP » Lowes bolstered by ‘solid’ Brno showing


Tomco: Still maintain Sam Lowes is at a disadvantage compared to the best Kalex bikes. Hes having to ride it that bit harder just to keep up especially over a race distance.
Few would disagree with that (except perhaps some of the 'experts' on here!), compare him to the other Speed Up riders and he's been on a different planet all year. Brno was a hell of ride from him, if that was on inferior equipment to the top Kalex riders (which most believe to be the case) then it was even more impressive.

MotoGP » Pramac confirms three-year MotoGP offer for Kent


Rexxy: Kents single season in moto2 was mediocre....moto2 may be a kalex cup right now but it still creams out the best riders for motogp....first he needs to find out if he can be competitive on a moto2 bike....
He was on a hiding to nothing on that Mistral, getting off the thing was the best thing he could have done, no one has done anything on it before him or since so it's very hard to gauge much from his year in Moto2 in my view. Regarding the Pramac offer, nobody knows what else he has been offered, if it's a top Moto2 ride then I agree he should probably go there, if not then he has to seriously consider this offer. Three years though...
