MotoGP » MotoGP Brno - Race Results


The Penny has finally dropped I have been following GP's since the Sheene/Roberts era and have maintained a strong interest throughout but after watching the MotoGP race today I finally had to admit to myself that the racing these days is just plain boring. Yes the riders are incredibly talented and yes the bikes are amazing but good racing this does not make. Much like F1, electronics are too dominant and unless the weather intervenes the results are predictable and all we are left with is a fast version of follow my leader. Watching Marquez is awe-inspiring and Rossi is still able to provide some interest after qualifying poorly and remains in my opinion the GOAT but apart from that it is dull. So, no more clogging up the sky box with endless sessions and races and late night viewing after the missus has gone to bed, I will simply catch up with the results and stick to BSB. At least you can appreciate the skill of the riders as they battle against misbehaving bikes and the results a

MotoGP » MotoGP Brno - Race Results


Tunde, why the hell would you take my comments as an attack on Lorenzo, he is incredibly talented. To be honest you make some valid comments, albeit in a somewhat infantile way, and the Doohan era wasnt good for the sport. I dont watch to support my favourite, what a sweet concept, I watch in the hope that there is close competitive racing rather than the drawn out procession that we witnessed today. As for being a VR fanboi, you are very much misguided my friend and why would you assume that I stuck Sheene's name in just for effect. I grew watching Sheene, Roberts, Rainey, Schwantz et all and have followed the sport since the mid 70's and whilst I do have a leaning towards Yamaha I have yet to don any specific rider shirts,hats or flags although I did have a John WIlliams replica helmet once if that counts??

Tunde: Since Sheene ? And only after THIS race have you accepted motogp is boring, dull, (insert soporific adjective).....keen watchers of this board often see such postings only for the poster to reveal themselves as part of the yellow haze. Why switch to BSB and not rallycross or motoX or speedway? Great "passing" , no electronics (an instant yellow haze give away btw). In today's infantalisation of everything, each race is supposed to be indescribably a classic one. So the question is if every race is a classic, what separates them ? Only favoritism of your favorite rider. In other words, you're really not a fan of the sport, just another poorly disguised VR fanboi(I've been a fan since Sheene phony). Even if what you post is true, boredom was epic when Doohan had Ukawa as a team mate. Didn't hear you then whining into your pot-noodle. Get over it. VR has a team mate that can slug it out with him, even on a bike he built. JL's immense talent is too often rubbished by th

WSBK » 2014 World Superbike entry list so far


Boosting the grids, why doesnt each manufacturer provide an EVO spec bike and support and Dorna pay for the logistics of shipping to each round. These 5-6 bikes could then be given to local wildcard riders with dealership support to try their hand against the WSBK regulars. That way Dorna could be see to be supporting the class, manufacturers would benefit from the publicity and data, TV coverage would have a new angle to cover and fans would get to see their local SBK riders. Might even uncover some fresh talent to boot
