WSBK » Sykes brands Baz ‘immature and disrespectful’

Sykes has rarely performed as a team player in the kawasaki Team - when has he ever acknowledged contribution of his team mate ? Has he ever used the word 'we'? Quick to criticise his team mate when something went wrong, Baz must of got fed up with him and with the last ride of the season decided to stick up 2 fingers. Sykes lost the championship because he couldn't beat Guintoli. I hope he treats Rea with more respect next year. Bet Baz will be glad to be out of it.

MotoGP » Rossi rues time lost on opening laps

Liam48: He ride a good race, I agree he lost too much time behind Espargaro and Dovi. He was slowly catching the front two then he then lost 7 tenths lap after lap for a few laps as the tires went. It seem that Rossi prefers the harder tyre while Lorenzo prefers the softer and the softer was the better race tyre for today. Considering that Marquez is Marquez and Lorenzo is a bit if a Silverstone specialist and Rossi had never been that great at Silverstone, this was a great result. Fingers crossed he can close in the top two in Misano and the following races after that.
Er......Rossi got soundly beaten by his team mate today who looks like he's back to his 2012/3 form. Is Rossi only here to collect podiums - feels like it?!

MotoGP » I'd be faster on a Superbike, says Crutchlow

Crutchlow needs to learn some diplomacy and keep his mouth shut. He's not happy and the bike doesn't work for him unlike Dovi ~ but Ducati are still paying his wages and there is a long way in the season to go. If it's that bad, walk away from your contract and face the consequences. Cal could learn a few PR skills from Rossi and how he handled things whilst at Ducati.

MotoGP » I'd be faster on a Superbike, says Crutchlow

GuzziHero: Okay, well I'm not sticking up for Cal but one bike sums up how an uncommunicative and unpredictable bike can eat even the best riders alive:- RS3 Cube. Regis Laconi, 2002 WBSK runner-up Colin Edwards, double WSBK champion Noriyuki Haga, competitive SBK rider Shane Byrne, WSBK champ (and multiple times again after MotoGP) And none of them could make the bike work. Actually, I see a pattern... all of the above had their grounding on the arguably more forgiving Superbikes. Maybe that is the problem with Cal, too.
Shakey has been a multiple BSB champion. He's never been a WSBK champion.
