  1. Gibernau To Test Ducati At Mugello In June
    From Kropotkin Thinks One of the more notable paddock visitors at the Grand Prix at Barcelona was former MotoGP hero Sete Gibernau. Hardly surprising, as the Barcelona circuit is right in Gibernau's backyard, and the Spaniard still has a lot of friends in the paddock. What was more interesting was the length of time Gibernau spent talking to engineers and team managers. The Spaniard even dropped a couple of casual hints that he could possibly be interested in getting back into MotoGP in some capacity, should the opportunity arise. It seems that behind these
  2. Spies To Replace Capirossi At Donington
    From Kropotkin Thinks The Montmélo circuit at Barcelona seems to be hexed for Loris Capirossi. After his terrifying first-corner crash there in 2006, which ended his chances of taking the MotoGP title that year, 2008 was only a little kinder. During this year's race, the Italian was sent flying into the gravel by Alex de Angelis, fracturing a bone in his right hand. Unlike 2006, however, Capirossi's injury means that the Suzuki veteran will be forced to miss at least the British Grand Prix at Donington in 10 days' time. Capirossi's ill fortune has
  3. Pre-race MotoGP Test Schedule At Indianapolis Motor Speedway
    From Kropotkin Thinks As Indianapolis is a new track this year, the MotoGP riders will get to test at the track before the actual race takes place in September. The date for this test has been announced as July 1st and 2nd. The MotoGP schedule for this period is already intensely busy, with the British Grand Prix at Donington on June 22nd, followed 6 days later by the Dutch TT at Assen on June 28th. The teams will have just two days to pack up and fly out to Indianapolis, where they will

  5. 2008 Catalunya Post-Race Testing - Day 1
    From Kropotkin Thinks Testing was rather eventful, with Casey Stoner setting the fastest time on the new carbon-fiber frame Ducati Desmosedici GP9, the bike scheduled to race next year. Both Nicky Hayden and Dani Pedrosa switched back and forth between the steel-valve Honda RC212V and the new pneumatic valve engine, but Pedrosa had a nasty highside on cold tires, and was forced to retire. Testing of the bike will now be down to Nicky Hayden for tomorrow. Hayden was 4/10ths quicker on the new bike than on the old bike during the race
  6. 2008 Catalunya MotoGP Race Report - Leading From The Front
    From Kropotkin Thinks Ask a dozen riders what their favorite race was, and you'll get a dozen different answers. But as different as those answers may be, in the end, they divide out into two camps. On the one hand, there are the Racers, the riders who love nothing more than to battle with their rivals all race long, only to pass them in the final corner and go on to take the win. On the other, there are the Winners, the riders who only care about getting away from the pack and
