Re: World SBK in 2021

I really don’t understand people’s obsession with having a go at rea What evidence has there been to say he asked for a review And if he did why does that affect what type of person he is Only thing I have seen is him talking to his crew chief which no one but them know what was discussed And I am s...

Re: Silly Season

Maybe they knew Petronius was pulling out and the spec of the bike on offer wasn’t good No idea what a B spec bike is but it doesn’t sound as good as a A spec bike which also doesn’t sound as good as 2022 factory spec Why would they turn down the chance of being a world champion in superbikes earnin...

Re: The Strange Case Of Maverick Vinales

There is always 2 sides to every story I am sure he will tell his soon ( or his dad will) As for Yamaha supplying inferior bikes to morbidelli I am sure it is the same as last year when he had wins and finished well in the championship As for the factory bikes Fabio from what I remember reading has ...

Re: The Strange Case Of Maverick Vinales

Having watched a video posted on Facebook I can’t see why over revving is a problem Sure he does hit the limiter but I’ve seen worse when riders do burnouts after finishing a race He is clearly upset over something and is taking it out on the bike However if I was Yamaha I would be more concerned wi...

What is happening Aprilia

Surely senior management at aprilia can’t be happy with how the racing team is being run Is it purely a money issue or just plain bad management Why don’t they just let gressini run the whole show As if getting turned down by good riders isn’t bad enough they can’t even decide which rider from their...

Re: WSBK in 2020

Rea has proved he is a great rider and with a new Kawasaki next year could be on for a 7th I would love to see the new m1000rr from bmw being far more competitive so it keeps them in the championship for years to come. As for Davies I think it’s time for a change in the championship line up with mor...

Re: MotoGP Rnd 10 Gran Premio Michelin® de Aragón

None of the Ducati’s look like they cam mount a challenge Dovi can’t afford to let the gap to the championship lead get bigger especially at a track where last year they were strong because of the power of the duke I think whoever picks the right tyres for the race will win. So maybe another new win...

There isn’t a racer around who would not of done what zarco did If you have the power to get by use it ( I don’t believe anyone would roll off the throttle when you have a chance to pass) Zarco was clearly in front of morbidelli so why didn’t morbidelli see him and slow down, or was he trying to be ...

This year will be a year for consistency
If Dovi can’t take advantage with Marc Marquez being out then maybe ducati need to replace him
Managing tyres is good but there are 2 very fast yamahas looking to show who is best
