Re: 2019 R5 - 19th May - Shark Helmets Grand Prix de France

Quatararo cant be on a 2019
If you look at his front end it does not even have carbon forks
Morbidelli has got carbon forks so I’d say they are definitely on different models

Re: 2019 R5 - 19th May - Shark Helmets Grand Prix de France

One of the things I find hard to understand is why the satellite yamahas always seem to qualify better on last years bike than the factory riders did on the same bike last year Is it because quateraro has no previous experience so just rides it as there are no upgrades to try anyway Zarco performanc...

Re: WSBK 2019

Great ride by rea Almost as good by Bautista Theses 2 still way ahead of the others so I would assume rea has found something on the Kawasaki as well as it being a hard track for Bautista Will be interesting to se how they go today in the sprint BRIDEWELL did good considering he has not ridden with ...

Re: KTM better or worse

I have always been a fan of ktm since the early 80’s when racing mx And would hate to see the company go bust with throwing money into a project that shows no results Is it a coincidence the moto2 bike is now struggling with the new triumph engine It’s no good comparing them with aprilia, compare th...

Re: WSBK 2019

Tommy BRIDEWELL to replace laverty
Not good to break both wrists especially if it was a technical fault that caused it
Looking forward to see how he goes on a full sbk spec bike after a good showing at Oulton

Re: 2019 R4 - 5th May - Gran Premio Red Bull de España

Good race today even if it was dominated by marc Rins rode very good to come through for second, he just need better qualifying so we can see him fight with Marc Ktm disappointing again. Hearing about Zarco in the pits makes me think their relationship is about to go really bad unless ktm can make s...

Re: British superbike champion

Re: British superbike champion

I think it will be between Brookes and redding
And I think the showdown format will tip it towards redding as all he has to do is qualify for the showdown which is then on circuits he will have ridden on before

Re: WSBK 2019

Re: 2019 R2 Argentina 31 March Autódromo Termas de Río Hondo

Rules are rules I guess. But ithink its a poor decision for Freddie to refuse an interview to explain his reasons for the decision
Rossi is riding really well and I think he will be able to carry the good form to America.
Although I think maverick will see his results and let it effect him

Also says they are not expecting any cuts As for top speed. The highest speeds were all Ducati’s and as for Bautista being the slowest perhaps the other s...

Re: WSBK 2019

Bautista is riding really good, but anyone who can’t see the ducati is miles faster than any others can’t be watching the same races as me Ducati have done a excellent job in bringing a almost MotoGP spec bike to Wsbk and it’s caught all the others napping. But when rea was dominant the rules were c...

Re: 2018

Very disappointing to see all the Ktm struggling
Maybe they have taken to much on with being in all 3 classes
Really good race though and it was good to see luthi perform well after a bad year last year in MotoGP

Hopefully ktm will have enough improved chassis at the next round for all their riders

Re: WSBK 2019

Great to see ducati winning
Bmw looking good
Yamaha looking stronger
Disapointing to see Honda still struggling
Still think rea will be hard to beat once the season gets going
I would like to see the other Ducati’s nearer to the front

The ducati sure does look fast especially in a straight line
