Re: Jake Dixon

Was the first one not a decent ride? Struggled last week but let's not forget how serious that wrist injury was last year

Re: World SBK in 2021

Had seen van der Mark was well over a second down in testing and my heart sank a little. Want to say and believe it's only testing but...........

Re: Will BMW deliver with Van Der Mark?

I really hope he does well, I like him and BMW although I'm fairly disappointed with their effort over the last two years. Poor effort with the top speed meaning Sykes, Reiterberger and Laverty really had no chance. I think van der Mark is a better rider than all three of them though

Re: Danny Kent

You're very welcome, do they do any road racing in Australia?

I know that Peter Hickman in that video ( briefly!!) raced in New Zealand a couple of years ago, including at the Cemetery Circuit which I think might be public roads

Re: Road racing 2021 - any good news anywhere?

I'm afraid not although I only keep up to speed with the NW200, TT and Ulster, I'm sure I read that one of the smaller events are hoping to run in the summer but I've read that a fair number are cancelled.

Re: ASBK Superbike championship

That is a real shame for everyone but in particular those of you in Australia. I take it the quarantine hotels in Melbourne are linked to the tennis?

My feelings are that there's a potential sting in the tail for Australasia with this virus.

Re: Danny Kent

Hopefully not a Gobert, he certainly rode in British Supertstock at the end of last year and got fairly strong as he went. I think he can do well but not so sure if the Suzuki can truly be a title contender.

He's on a last chance now, 27 and not a daft boy anymore. I wish him well

The world stage is missing strong American and Japanese riders, hopefully Beaubier, Gerloff and maybe Paasch a bit later can bring the US and A up to speed. On the Japanese note I'm intrigued to see how this lad Mizuno goes in BSB..........

Nagashima San

Reading on crash.net that he's taking a year out in 2021, not really any reason given. Shame, said it before that i like strong Japanese riders but Fingernails profile pic really doomed the last 3/4 of Testsuta's year.

He really got bashed about later on this year, hope we see him again all is ok

Although he gets a bad press I'd be surprised if Puig was the sole contributor to the outcome. Lots of people under a lot of pressure ( for various reasons)mean a high...

Sorry, but I think pointing the finger at one person or group of people is being naive.

Re: Will Marquez become the greatest racer of all Time?

Is it unthinkable that next year or a year later we could see Marquez retiring before Rossi does? Doubt it, even next year if he can't come back I'd expect at least one attempt at it in the years after This year has shown that the competition is fairly close to each other and its also shown that th...

Re: Racing circuit pantheon

Really hoping Portimao gets added to the GP calendar regularly! Knowing how the cameras flatten somewhere like Brno, I bet those up and downhills have really got some gradient, would be great to see in person. Looks like a lovely part of the world too. The Algarve is lovely most of the year round. ...

Re: Performance enhancing substances

I think the sentence handed to Iannone is ridiculous.

Sure the defence he offered was total bullshit, but the advantages of using such substances in motorcycling must be minimal compared to proper athletic sports eg cycling, running etc.
Do they not take this into account for sentencing?
