The Loss of Luis Salom, and the failures of the Sport

Luis Salom has passed and we offer our sympathies.  I am afraid that his death is the result of handshakes, and back scratching between powerful people in Spain. Specifically, the operators of the track and Dorna and the FIM.  Drama sells tickets, drama means more fans watch, so when riders are wild, like Simoncelli was,…

Rossi and Fans 2016.. Crying Toddlers

Boooohoohoo waaahhhaa….. lol    Casey stoner has hit the nail on the head in his recent tweet.  Stoner says that Rossi has a great opportunity to address his fans and suggest that they respect his competition. Rossi of course being the emotional toddler of the MotoGp paddock will do no such thing.  He still has…

WSBK Sepang 2016 Qualifiying

  WSBK Sepang Malaysia 2016 Q1 showed that Tom Sykes was going to be very fast in Q2 but I could not have guessed that he would set a new track record with his impressive 2:02 time.   Up until the last 1:32 I was so very surprised to see Nicky Hayden in the top position. …

The Best and Favorite Underdogs… of MotoGP and WSBK

Having been a fan of MotoGP for 25 years, I have developed a taste for a certain kind of bike pilot.  Some riders come off as rude or stuck on themselves.  For me that is a turn off, and I don’t care for the off track attitude so I don’t root for them on the…

  Warm up’s have just finished…. It is time for this rounds predictions.  So far this season my predictions have been right on for each race.. however, this time I will not take a risk.  The order will most likely be like qualification Rossi, Lorenzo and Marquez.  The competition is so close, I expect each…

Reaction to Lorenzo’s announcement..

Yes, I wrote the previous article that Jorge was leaving and that Rossi had pushed him out… by playing a psychological game with Lorenzo, a game which he won. See “Rossi has done it again….” I have been sitting on this story for a couple of days now, as I wanted to really take my…

WSBK Assen 2016 race 2: a wet strategy

As always forgive my grammar and typing errors.. it is after all 5am in California and I haven’t slept a wink.  I wish our editor was awake to check this… but its not the case. You can check the race results at WSBK’s website.  I would rather focus on the circumstances surrounding the tire changes…

World Supersport Assen 2016 Spolier!

  Final Edit The WSS series Assen 2016, has stopped from a red flag due to rain.  The American PJ Jacobsen crashed within seconds of the red flag, and not knowing that he could restart, he spent much too much time walking around and wasting time with the track marshals.  His crew had to come…

WSBK Assen 2016 Race 1. Wow!! Result
