Sep 27, 2019

Description:

MotoGP sensation Fabio Quartararo is coy on reigning Motocross of Nations champions Team France being able to seal a sixth consecutive title this weekend at TT Circuit Assen. The 21 year old Frenchman, who has climbed the MotoGP podium four times in his debut season, is a keen motocrosser and fan of MXGP and believes the odds are high against Gautier Paulin, Jordi Tixier and Maxime Renaux hoisting the Chamberlain trophy for the seventh time since 2001. The 73rd edition of the ‘MXoN’ is taking place on the temporary sandy track constructed across the famous Assen asphalt in northern Holland: the first visit to the country since 2004. “I think it will be difficult for them,” the Petronas Yamaha Sepang […]

Evolution or Revolution

Aug 28, 2019

Description:

WorldSBK got back to some form of action at the weekend with a two-day test in Portimao. I really do feel the extra long summer break is still one of the most detrimental aspects of the series at the moment but it would seem to be just a reflection of the fact that no one wants to hold a race in late July or August. It was always a tradition under the previous Italian ‘administration’ that most of August was cleared in the calendar as the country all but closes down for the month. However, since Dorna took control the slot in the calendar at the end of July/beginning of August has disappeared. Some say it is to avoid a […]

Squaring Off

Jul 31, 2019

Description:

When a sportsman is operating at the peak of his powers, holding off opposition at arm’s length, it’s natural he will dive into the art of mind games and verbal sparring. 2019 has been another year marked by Marc Marquez’s on the edge riding, eye-catching saves and daredevil overtakes. But he has added two new strings to his bow for his attempt at winning a sixth premier class title. Leading from the front, dictating the pace is one. Not only that; the reigning world champion has been as calculating and relentless with his verbal digs as at any point in his career, taking glee in dictating psychology from his dealings with the media. As OTOR contributor David Emmett coined it […]

How do you know when it’s the rider who is making is the difference and when it’s the bike? It always amazes me how many people profess to being able to recognise this subtle nuance of elite level motorcycle racing, based purely on how fast the whole package goes in a straight line. Back at the opening round of the 2007 MotoGP World Championship in Qatar, Casey Stoner stunned the world with his debut victory for Ducati, muscling the notorious Desmosedici around 80% of the circuit well enough to stay on the back wheel of Valentino Rossi’s Yamaha and make use of his bike’s 12km/h top speed advantage over the M1 on the straight – pretty much the only place […]
