Being acquainted with Mr Laverty's flight plans, I don't think he'll succeed. He's off to Italy on Tuesday, but I don't think he'll make it as far as Noale.

That would be the same site reporting that Ducati is to pull out of MotoGP for 2014 and take a sabbatical...

Krop,

I tried the Italian to English translation on my computer. It comes up with the image but no text.....

Was it THAT BAD that it couldn't be translated??

Guess certain colorful dialogue just doesn't convert to another language.

Wonder if Crutchlow can get it converted to true English?

I'm not sure Google has a bullshit to English translation mode.

SBK or Moto GP?

If Moto GP, what are they going to do with Spies?

I suspect Spies will race in WSBK next year.

Great race I'll add.
be careful what you wish for....Honda reasoning is that moto 3 should be relatively cheap.,so their engines reflect that philosphy.If people keep saying their engines are weak they might get offended and build some real engines,at a cost of course

That's exactly what they're going to do for next year. Full fat factory engine with only a few teams supplied, with Rins and Marquez on the bike. They will destroy KTM, then pull out of the class.

One of those two will have to go to Yamaha. Marc Marquez will be at Repsol for a while yet...

I'm guessing Dani is short timing right about now. Hell, they all are! The talent coming up through the ranks after Marquez is something to behold! A NEW evolution of Aliens is on the way!

No, but the waiting list is definitely getting stacked DEEP with talent!
