MotoGP » Dovi: Open rules not behind Ducati podium


I am one of those who likes Moto GP for the innovations in engineering, after all, thats what this series was supposed to be. If you are looking for equality and performance indexing, WSBK is the series for you. Why turn Moto GP into a glorified SBK series. If more bikes on the podium happens, great, but i dont worry myself with it, i dont care. If 1 manufacturer wins every race by 10 seconds, so be it, i dont care. I can honestly say i have never walked away from a GP race disappointed, be it a duel to the line, or a 10 second win. In my opinion, Dorna will kill WSBK by going to EVO tech regs, and will kill GP if they dumb down GP to to take its place.

MotoGP » Moto2: Rabat talks Termas de Rio Hondo circuit


V4Poweeeer: It's flat as a pancake maybe just maybe the Yams won't be at to much of a disadvantage. Those hard braking zones aren't gonna be good for Yamaha either. Guess we cant call certain tracks bogey tracks when theres so many bogey tracos these days on the calendar.
Not to awful flat., pretty good climb up the back straight, then back down through turns 5-9.

BSB » Imperious Byrne wraps up Brands double


Yes i have, close racing doesnt hide the fact that the talent level is weak. AMA is the same way. If not for mechanical issues, Josh Hayes wins his 4th title in a row last year. I like Josh a lot, but that doesnt change the fact that a guy nearing 40 years old dominates, its not normal. Same way with Shakey and the BSB. Good racing , but an indictment on the talent level of the series.

BSB » Imperious Byrne wraps up Brands double


GranttheJock: @Brain I kind of struggle with your thinking here..... How can you say that the talent level is weak in BSB? Does a rider have to be 20 years old to have talent or be a race winner? What does that say for John McGuinness or Joey Dunlop? Or Rossi??? Ageism is as bad as racism....
I call it realism. Look, im not trying to hurt your national pride, but if you look at the line ups of this past weekends races, its fairly obvious that the series is overrun with retreads from decades gone by. There is riders in there 50's, 40's finishing at or near the top and most are in there mid 30's Sorry, but in the world of bike racing, you judge your series talent level by the amount of young talent who is moving on to the world scene. BSB has become the retirement home for riders with nowhere else to go.

BSB » Imperious Byrne wraps up Brands double


This guy is older than Methuselah, and no matter how many times he falls on his face in world competition, he can go back home and win his national series. I knew a couple of years ago how weak it was when a washed up Hopkins came within a gnat hair of winning it the first time he had ever even seen the tracks. Nothing against Shakey, but this is an indictment of just how weak national superbike series have become.

MotoGP » Dovi: Open rules not behind Ducati podium


Smoker: For those complaining about rules unfairly benefiting Ducati in MotoGP at the moment, or Twins vs. Fours in WSBK at any point in that series...I think that when 990cc 4-strokes were introduced into MotoGP, the 2-stroke displacement limit should have gone up to 990cc also. "smile"
LOL can you imagine ? After riding a 750 2 smoke, King Kenny said, "They dont pay me enough to ride that thing" just think of a 990 2 smoke. Talk about unrideable.

MotoGP » Dovi: Open rules not behind Ducati podium


Rowdy75: Two factors nullify Dovi's comment. No one knows how much fuel Ducati where running, but if it was anything over 21 litres then open class regs contributed to the podium. Even if they were running with the same amount of fuel as the factory class bikes, an open class soft tyre was used in qualifying, so again, that would have contributed to the podium placing.
The Factory bikes only get 20 litres this year, unless of course you are Ducati

MotoGP » Dovi: Open rules not behind Ducati podium


To start with, i dont scream at the top of my lungs over any sport. As far as all the regs you listed, i was against each and every one. For this series, im more of a run what brung kind of guy. I liked v 5's with 19000 rpm, i liked tire wars, i liked fuel guzzling engines that spat fire out the tailpipe and were tuned to last 65-75 kilometers. I will let my feeling be heard with each and every new reg, then go about my business. I will stay a fan until the day comes when performance records are talked about in past tense
