Politics & Japes..Iberian style.
I don't blame Schwantz for not being humble and taking a swipe at Pedrosa & Puig, two of the most obvious beneficiaries of Dorna's bias towards Spanish riders in a World Championship that is little more than an extension of their national CEV series.
Four Spanish riders in MotoGP parc ferme..Kallio in 3rd on the Moto2 podium, the only non-Spaniard across all three classes to taste some champagne..
Revvin Kevin had a lengthy contract to promote Texas, signed off by overlord Ezpeleta in recognition of the work and money he raised to get that circuit built, only to be dropped without support when $ signs started flashing in the eyes of CotA owners.
They did exactly the same thing to Tavo Hellmund over the F1 promoters rights..and had to settle out of court.
Hellmund brought F1 to Texas..Schwantz did the same by bringing MotoGP and got royally fked over too.
The difference being that Kevin Schwantz is an ex-Champ and a legend within the sport whose credibility has taken an unwarranted battering over the affair, as can be attested to by the number of small minded comments from supposed bike racing fans on these pages.
The motorcycling fraternity ought to be ashamed over the way he's been treated, and Ezpelata and his tapas munching cronies spineless lack of solidarity in the name of a few bucks disgusts me.
While you're off on a name-dropping jolly to further line his already bulging pockets aboard your shiny freshly serviced Blade which I'll bet you never raised a spanner to, in true born again yuppie style..Wosi will be banging a new back tyre in the Bandit12, fettling the carbs to give perfect drive off the bottom and setting the Renthals to wheelie mode for his bank holday trip to Oulton.
That's after watching all of Jerez on the flat-screen in like minded company..where no doubt gallons of Strongbow will be consumed in perfect comfort as a starter.
As for your little tip..I'll pass on that thanks Shawno. Remind us how the last wager panned out with Crutchlow at Austin?
PS: Hedgey..you complete and utter dolt.
Stoner qualifies on pole by nearly 3 tenths, drops to 7th after an own-fault mistake and manages to rescue bottom step 15 seconds behind the winner..and you think that's a lesson?
Oooh the pain, the hurt..Marquez has replaced your hero and nobody bats a fkin eyelid?
Hahaha..give it up muppet. You been watching long?
