Getting DORNA to move a race date to accommodate his wedding? Maybe he can talk to Audi about making a certain red bike faster?

A couple by KR too. His last not too long ago.

Nevertheless, I still think the Rossi/Stoner corkscrew is the most iconic event that I know of in road racing. I was at Loudon in the paddock. We were sitting in a motorhome watching the race. My son had just finished a perfect day aboard his CBR600RR.

At the moment of that pass, the whole paddock erupted in cheers and shrieks. They it did again after Rossi's T11 brake check. That was a big moment in anybodies book.
See I dont get that to me the best moments are like when stoner goes round the outside of lorenzo into turn 1.cutting corners and brake checkin not so much

Yes you get it. That was just not YOUR best moment...

Mind you I have always been a big Casey fan since he raced the satellite Honda. Vale had my adulation, but was not my favorite. I expected CS27 to dominate that day. But then the unbelievable happened... The fucking corkscrew! who would have guessed?

well maybe swimmer.

Laguna Seca should be paid to host MotoGP.

What I see is that this is just Marc's past coming back to haunt him.

Yes, he can ride the wheels off the thing.

Shit, he just proved he can ride the wheels off his team mate's bike at the same time.


He's young and invincible, and keeps getting away with some dumb shit. From what I can see, all the old timers are, in their own ways, trying to teach him before he learns the lesson the hard way, and collecting somebody else along the way too.

Memories of Simo are still fresh, and Marc has the making of a great champion.

Unless his luck runs out.

This article about Eugene Laverty's choices for 2014 also address the statuses of Hayden and Espargaro.

What is even more interesting is what I have been reading sure makes it look like Ben Spies will not be with Pramac Ducati next year. Maybe the rumors are true about his pending move to Suzuki?

I really like Laverty in WSBK. I think him and Nicky would make great teammates. I would hate to see him go to Ducati. I think he is smarter than that anyway. Let's hope.

Here's to hoping too, that the Ape is a good bike outta the box. They are strong in WSBK.

We should get a pretty fair comparison between the Ape and the Ducati, anyway, with Nicky switching over.

I still remember Nicky saying they don't pay Stoner enough after he first rode the D16. I would expect the Ape to be much more user friendly.

On the other hand, when Yonny Hernandez switched from the ART to the Pramac D16, recently, he raved that the D16 was the fastest, best bike he has ever ridden. I think he did an admirable job at Aragon, too.

A side link in the Laverty story had this new track being built. Its great to see more racetracks popping up around the world.

Circuit of Wales, Ebbw Vale: Work to start on £280m race circuit

Various tweets say Stoner likes the production races very much and it can be competitive with minor tweaks. Only noticeable differencies are a little lack of bhp and different engine breaking compared to RCV prototype. Interesting to see how it performs next season.

I'm not sure Dorna cares about that.

Might make for a nice Wales championship between that and the existing Anglesey circuit.

And, on a related note...

Aspar on Honda in 2014?
