He's getting less than a million euro a year to ride for Tech3. He'd get even less to ride for Yamaha's new B-team. Tech3 is as good as it gets at rounding up sponsorship money to afford talent. Yamaha has very little interest in speeding up their development ... more »

Not that I can think of. Totally unique set of circumstances tho. Between the Repsol connection and the fact that all of his "replacements" have not worked out. Simoncelli died. Stoner retired early. And Honda sorta gave up on Jack Miller too soon. From ... more »

As I suspected, the Zarco to Honda rumors were false. Honda offered too little money. KTM offered big money AND employment for Zarco’s entire staff in the box. Lorenzo better sign with Suzuki quick or that door is gonna close quickly. Iannone has finally ... more »

The close racing is not a result of the formula. It’s a result of the youth. They make many mistakes which keeps the races close/interesting.

Kawasaki has won 3 championships in a row. And was so dominant that they’ve been handicapped to allow for more parity. If that’s not a major indication of sandbagging, I dont know what is. Dorna doesnt want in-house factory teams in WSBK. They want factory ... more »

MarcVDS is rumored to have officially signed a 3 yr deal with Suzuki. Im guessing as a satellite. Doubt it’s a customer team deal. No word on if they will get Factory bikes. Zarco to Honda rumors are heating up. I still don’t believe it tho.

Kevin Lee was on twitter the night before his weigh-ins posting photos of tiramisu while openly admitting he still had a ways to go (19 lbs) on his weight cut. Brush up.

Im glad they stopped the fight when they did. McGregor was done cardio wise. And he was taking hits to the head. A fighter's "chin" only has so much life in it. And McGregor has a history of taking a shot so he can give one. At some point that will catch ... more »

"Legitimize his win"..... seriously? Nobody has to legitimize a win when they dominate someone that convincingly. And they would've rematched had Aldo kept his name up. But he didnt. He continued to lose fights and his stock has fallen. While at the ... more »

The only time McGregor's stamina are in question is when he's fighting out of his element. IE: the boxing match vs Mayweather or both fights versus Nate at 170 lbs. You think Conor gets gassed while fighting Nate at 155? I dont. I think he's hitting ... more »

Ummm.... go rewatch the 9th round. McGregor hit Mayweather with a body shot that hurt him and before he could go in for the kill, the ref jumped in for absolutely no reason. It possibly changed the outcome of the fight.

You cant call it a “fluke punch” when he literally called it out how it would go down, to the detail, well in advance, to anyone who would listen. Conor beat Max (while hurt). Conor destroyed Aldo & Eddie. Both legit. He doesn’t shy away from fights. ... more »

Yeah they set the limit to 24 bikes. It makes the grid spots valuable and forces OEMs to support the existing satellite teams. Which is important because teams like Gresini, Aspar, Tech3, etc are actually the backbone of the sport. They field riders ... more »

Agreed. Spreading the talent out will only help the sport. 17 factory bikes with a handful of legit championship contenders: MM / Honda #1 Rossi / Yamaha #1 Mav / Yamaha #2 Dovi / Ducati #1 Zarco / KTM #1 Lorenzo / Suzuki #1 And a VERY strong group of ... more »

Rumor is, Jack is getting serious consideration for the #2 Ducati. KTM is making a offer as well. That would be a massive domino effect. If Jack jumps him in the pecking order, Petrucci would have to decide if he is willing to stay at Pramac on the #3 ... more »

I like Floyd and what he brings to the table... but I’d much rather watch any number of potential Conor opponents: GSP @ 155 Nate 3 @ 155 Max 2 @ 145 RDA @ 155 Ortega @ 145 Khabib @ 155

It was good. Didn’t learn anything new except for how often he’s fought hurt. He absolutely refuses to miss a fight. And his chic is as crazy as he is. Pretty fun to watch.
