    If he can manage his tires a little better he can put it on the podium. Even the announcers were talking about his lighting up his rear on exits.

    Maverick is showing great maturity for such a young rider. And surgical like precision. Rossi seemed happier for the kid than his 2nd place finish.

    Alex Marquez high side was very scary, the bike flicked so violently in mid air it almost took off his head. In real time i thought he was really hurt. Big brother was pushing too hard and lost a potential win and now no points.

    Good job by Cal too.
    Moto 3 was..... well the usual hornet nest of madness!

    Right now the best candidate is MV...As far as Rossi being happy about MV's win, I think it is a combination of that and the fact that Whore-Gay is having a hard time on the Duc!

    He had the hard rear on for a reason, and only slowed in the last couple laps when he gave up the chase for 4th. According to him in an interview I just read, he says he can manage the hard rear, smoking it all the way to the end!

    If you watched him in Moto2 the last couple years, he was a master of tire management, and the more experience he gets on the M1 with the Michelin's, the more I think that'll be the case. Watch out for him as the season progresses...

    Since I'm about 6'2" tall, I will admit, I find the Panigale to be pretty dang comfortable. Now, I haven't ridden anywhere close to 500 miles​ on it, but the last test ride I did do on the 1299, was about 45 minutes and it was comfortable, even on the freeway.

    BSB this weekend and some hope for Honda


    Honda Racing’s Jason O’Halloran is confident of showing a marked improvement with the new CBR1000RR Fireblade at Brands Hatch this weekend after a positive test at Mallory Park.
    The Louth-based squad faced a baptism of fire with the all-new machine at Donington Park, struggling to break into the top ten as they suffered issues with the new electronic throttle connection.
    In dire need of track time, they headed to their local circuit Cadwell Park for an afternoon test session last week, where the team continued to struggle and were significantly off the pace.
    However, a breakthrough since then has seen O’Halloran regain the feeling with his bike that saw him fighting at the front in 2016. After making some major changes back at Louth, the team took to the track at Mallory Park on Wednesday with both O’Halloran and Linfoot pleased with the progress made.
    "After the initial tests this year and the first round I think it's fair to say we have been frustrated, the team, myself and the new blade are capable of much more than two tenth place finishes,” O’Halloran confessed.
    “After Donington we went to Cadwell for a half day test, where I struggled again and that’s at a place I absolutely love riding. We knew we had to make some changes.
    “I won’t pin-point exactly what, but we made a big change in the direction we were heading and in a quick test at Mallory Park, we confirmed that was the correct thing to do. I felt comfortable on the bike again and really enjoyed riding it. BSB is never easy, it’s easy a competitive championship but I’m sure we will be back at the front and fighting where we should be this weekend. “*

    However everyone else has been making changes, Haslam has a different engine set up and Byrne on the Ducati are back in action, in fact Byrne set the fastes time yesterday .... I'll keep posting updates

    Why is it that it's a brand new bike, then they had to make major changes to it? Should have just stuck with what was working, aka, the "old" bike. I can't imagine how much money was dumped into the purchase of the new bike, then all the labor and parts thrown at it to bring it to the level of the previous bike...

    Laguna is small and slow compared to COTA.

    John is BSB being broadcast on BeIn Tv? I can't find it here in the states. You get some great racing on the other side of the pond.

    BSB is broadcast on Eurosport for free as is WSB and the Workd Endurance Races, which is coming from Le Mans today, plus they show bike racing from Oliver's Mount, etc .... Oh and some stuff from Oz

    Live BSB & Endurance racing today ... spoilt for choice

    Eurosport is meant for Brits but here's a link to the main page, in the menu there's an option to download the app and purchase a subscription which is about $35 but includes live streaming of their events

    http://uk.eurosportplayer.com/promo/...iXYaAiz98P8HAQ

    Motors TV do some great bike racing too

    Laguna Seca may be short and slow but it made for interesting racing and you could follow the track, not corners by numbers

    It seems you need a UK VPN to access Eurosport in the USA

    The Endurance racing was going flat out last night, 2 hrs in and things were taking shape, the works Honda team were 20 laps down after an electrical fault, the non EWC Honda private teams were running stock engines and still running well, although in the usual place down the field ..still 24 hrs is a long race

    The end of the 2nd hour saw the 3rd BMW high side at the same corner as one of the others

    Yamaha are running away with it

    Yes, his younger brother

    Yamahas first win since 2009

    The degree of concentration required to race around the same circuit in constantly changing conditions take a special mentality, the tyre changes and gassing up is something to behold, tyres changed at both ends in 6 seconds, then everyone stands back as the gas is put in, full tank in 5 seconds, the riders are poised to jump on ...very disciplined team work a lesson HRC should get the MotoGP teams to practice

    Here's a promo Yamaha vid that shows the pit stop

    It's crazy when you look at the world record for a tire change pit stop in F1 is less than 2 seconds...of course they don't refuel anymore...so much more going on when pitting a motorcycle.

    They also don't have to undo the nut, pull the front wheel spindle through, then deal with the discs when putting the front wheel in, line the spindle up and put the nut on without cross threading it

    Guy Martin lost a TT because they crossed the back wheel nut up at the first tyre change at the end of lap 2, when he came in at the end of lap 4 it took nearly 2 minutes to get the back wheel out ...

    Ducati Consider Lorenzo Resignation, Promote Spanish Press

    Ducati Consider Lorenzo Resignation
    ADVERTISEMENT



    Jorge Lorenzo may leave the Ducati team later this year, the Spanish press reported.

    Ducati Consider Lorenzo Resignation – The information comes after the bad performances of Jorge Lorenzo with Ducati. The highest ranked place the rider had on the grid was 18th in the championship with five points and is the worst man to compete with a Ducati motorcycle this year, being beaten even by all satellite riders, from Reale Avintia Racing (Hector Barberá, Loris Baz) , The Pull & Bear Aspar Team (Karel Abraham and Alvaro Bautista) and the OCTO Pramac Racing men (Scott Redding and Danilo Petrucci).

    The news report that Jorge Lorenzo, despite the words of encouragement of Gigi Dall’Igna, general manager of the team, is in the sights of the anger Ducati leaders. The performance this year and the way he reacted after falling on the first corner at the Termas de Río Hondo, pushing the Desmosedici to the ground, already in the gravel, did not fall well in the bosom of the Italians.

    The big problem is the adaptation of the #99 to the Italian motorcycle. Dovizioso, his team-mate with the same machine was fast and in good shape in Qatar … but he has far more experience with the Desmosedici, while Lorenzo has a long way to go with his new GP17.

    Farewell Jorge Lorenzo is the option the Spanish newspapers are predicting, but it is certain that this would imply the payment of a damn compensation to the Mallorcan. Still this means that this is an option still on the table.

    The 11th place in Qatar and the fall in Argentina left, put the Ducati racing team on the verge of a nervous breakdown. The plan would be to wait three or four months to see how the Spanish evolves. If the results continue in this way, Ducati can even advance with the dismissal of the 2015 champion, having already elected Casey Stoner as a great substitute.

    If the departure of the Spaniard from Ducati looks unlikely, Stoner’s full-time entry into the team seems almost impossible.

    In any case, one thing is certain: Lorenzo’s performance at the Ducati has defrauded expectations.

    Hopefully those who were lucky enough to attend the race this weekend will post up some pics and their experience soon. Either way, great race but feels like we were robbed a little, due to the (not to be mentioned at this time) incident. Was really impressed with JZ and was hoping to see a little more from him dicing it up. Both the Moto2 and Moto3 races were pretty good too and also with some race changing incidents. Now we wait for the next round but in the mean time, next weekend will be WSBK!
