MotoGP » Loris Baz looking for a ride


Peter Light: Everyone is making good points above there are advantages if you are small and light and the current rules drive the kind of decisions that are being made. The thing that bothers me is that Aspar was ready to sign Baz based on results, and recommendation from poeple who he respects and trusts. This only changed when he found out how tall he was. One of the things that I love about bike racing is that it does not discriminate (gender, race, religion etc) and that everyone gets the same treatment if they want to have a go. Are we in danger of this changing?
Hmm, are you trying to be sarcastic and if not what have you been taking? :D Only reason why baz was even a candidate was Dornas golden hand shake towards Aspar if they took a French passport rider in further to boost the tv right sales. It definetely wasn't about the speed or results allthough the guy is a good level rider for SBK. Also in many other way case baz is against you principles.

MotoGP » Official: Jack Miller to MotoGP with Honda


Texas Roadhouse: So what is the point of Moto 2?
To provide the truly talented top 7-20 speed level riders of the world, that are not aliens and are lacking the political and marketing support of factories and dorna, a change to race on an absolutely highest and most even/competitive level agains other absolute top riders. A class where it is fully up to the rider (with a important support of crew chief) to beat the rest top class riders and where you as a rider is the piece which makes that 1-5 tenth difference/lap that puts you or separates you from the spotlight. The incredients in the series are extremely good for us spectators and have offered us very good racing, also outside top 5. I hope that MotoGP could also offer a lot more the good points of moto2 in the future and occupy absolute top riders of the whole world on a more even machinery (instead of present 10 absolute top and 10 pay riders, with too uneven machinery)

MotoGP » Official: Jack Miller to MotoGP with Honda


Mixed feelings on the site and also on my head. I'm not happy about the politics and business scraple that is going on especially on the second half of the grid. And sad that second half of the grid is not occupied by the fastest riders available in the world but more or less with the ones that makes most sense from cash flow side undepending on the rider speed. Seems as the open bikes will be ridden with a lot more 2 pack riders next year as on the second hand AE and Scott will get better bikes under them that tyey teuly deserve. Miller is talented that is shure but only within 2-3 years we will see if he has what it takes to run in MotoGP as it is absolutely shure that he wouldn't most likely have it even to run on front in Moto2 in first season. Hrc really believes in this kid this is shure. And from Jacks angle it would have peen pure stupidity to do anything else than to hop on HRc motogp train. You simply can't afford to lose a change when the best factory is calling you, and i

MotoGP » Eugene Laverty confirms MotoGP move


ProfessorX: Even though it's probably a pay raise, mentally, it will probably be harder than anything hes had to contend with in WSBK/WSS .
Hard to imagine a pay rise in motogp if he hasn't been paying for suzuki seat as well.. If he lands on Aspar or forward it is a100% pay ride as the remaining seats have been offered more or less for direct money. or in the best case about riding for free for the ones that have the speed (e.g Kallio) Laverty ain't coming in the series for riding skills as he is 5-10 option in the que but first to take the terms. If he lands in open Honda it will be a waste of seat and a lot less talented riders in open bikes next year, compared to this years (in ducati its pretty same who is there as half a second slower rider won't change the overall performance that much) Seems like that it is impossible to make racing more thight in MotoGP as every time bikes are getting closer (next year) more slower pay riders are coming in fill seats

MotoGP » Alvaro Bautista confirmed with Gresini Aprilia


Wasthatit: I would like to see Kallio get a chance on the second bike. Always thought he was a great prospect and may suit the MotoGP paddock better than Moto2.
Same thoughts and definetely would suit and prefer to ride MotoGP bikes instead of Moto2 bikes. I hope that he would get a change for 2 years on some competitive bike but most likely he won't be even close of getting Aprilia due to the marketing profile.. :( He brought the thing up on sunday interview, allthough very politely as he always does. ( they are in motogp to boost the sales and you won't boost any sport bike sales in Finland as the whole market doens't exist, as last year the most sold sport bike was s1000rr with less than 20pcs being sold). In Aspar "dog deal" that was offered the pay and other terms were below the belt, which is a real shame. :( italtrans is satisfactory for next year but I would still hoepe that there would be an opt out clause if a Motogp ride appears on the table

MotoGP » Scott Redding to Marc VDS Honda


Helena: It's good news for Scott and I'm looking forward to seeing him on this Honda. Maybe this can be a two rider Moto GP team and there can still be a bike for Mika Kallio?
It is a one bike Motogp team and there isn't even a slightest change for Mika getting a MotoGP ride under MVDS garage. Allready this Scott's bike is extremely expensive and high efford for the team so it would be also financially impossible to play out. Unfortunately it seems that Kallio has been once again left out from the Motogp paddoc and available bikes will be occupied by guys bringing in loads of money or with full support of factory and dorna (Best example Miller that will most likely take the step as a new golden boy and on the second hand he wouldn't have any competive open places even to go into in Moto2)

MotoGP » Scott Redding to Marc VDS Honda


cfsteezy: I wonder what the power differences between the 2015 open bike and reddings factory honda will be. Next year is lookin good for close racing. Faster open bikes, faster ducatis, faster aprilias. I hope Aspar gets proper motors to hang with the satelite boys cuz we all know they got duped this season. Espargaro proved what a factory engine can do on open software. Maybe the 2015 open honda will work well too
open honda can do it but the riders will be bottle necks next year.. Hayden is a question mark, but hopefully can recover and let his talents shine. Abraham and othel candidates, aoyama, Camier, Baz, Laverty, Miller won't be able to challenge into the bikes full potential level next year. Simply doesn't have that needed 3-5 tenths/ lap race pace compared to absolute top Motogp riders (and miller would be in learning mode). Kallio was offered a dog deal (rumour) and unfortunately didn't take it, really bad for racing and Mika's sake!

WSBK » Laverty frustrated with Jerez results return


V4Poweeeer: This isn't exactly club level racing and neither is the equipment. Not a good place to be right now trying to bargain a deal together for next season maybe if he was still on the Aprilia Laverty would have some bargaining potential but the Suzuki has shot any thought of that almost dead in its tracks.
And neither should be riders understanding about their equipment and the mistakes they are doing.. :) All in all I think the guy leart one new thing about his bike and starts this weekend which is good. It will be interesting to see where Eugene lands next year and how much we get rotation in wsbk in general..
