SBK World Superbike Championship, Losial Qatar, Season Finale Round 12 of 12

THIS MAKES 54 WORLD CHAMPIONSHIPS FOR APRILIA AND 104 FOR THE PIAGGIO GROUP
Sylvain Guintoli Is 2014 World SBK Superbike Champion on his Aprilia RSV4
Aprila Doubles Its Triumph as Manufacturer World Champion

 
Losail, Qatar, November 2nd 2014 - It is a triumph, a double world championship win that was unimaginable just a few races ago. On the Losail track in Qatar Sylvain Guintoli completed a comeback that will go down in Superbike history and with two brilliant and undisputable wins in the two night races on the desert circuit he overtook Tom Sykes, earning the World Champion crown for the first time in his career.
 
Aprilia doubles the celebration by becoming the Manufacturer World Champion for the third consecutive year, reaffirming the undisputed technical superiority of the RSV4, the Italian bike that has rooted the best competition in the world since its rookie year in World SBK (2009), winning 7 World titles (three Rider and four Manufacturer). This world championship combination (Rider and Manufacturer) is the third one for the Aprilia RSV4 after sweeping the competition in 2010 and 2012 with Max Biaggi.

The night races in Losail were the culmination of a comeback that seemed impossible. After the American round at Laguna Seca the advantage Sykes (Kawasaki) had built up over Guintoli was 44 points, a huge gap with just three rounds left in the season. Since then the RSV4 and its riders were on the comeback trail, proving to be unbeatable. At Jerez and Magny-Cours Aprilia dominated the races winning three times with Melandri (and Guintoli second each time) and once with Guintoli (and Melandri second). These were extremely significant points that allowed Aprilia to catch up and overtake Kawasaki in the Manufacturer World Championship and Guintoli to turn up at the Qatar round trailing Sykes by just 12 points.

Ducati 11299 Panigale

New 2014 Ducati 1299 Panigale, 1199R 15 Superbikes announced
EICMA, Italy, November 3rd 2014 - Ducati found that "lost mid-range torque" with its current Superquadro1199 motor. It just took an 87cc displacement increase with a bigger bore to bring back the previous generation longer stroke Testastretta motor's torque curve that Ducati fans loved and missed with the Superquadro. The new generation Superquadro short stoke engine was specifically designed for racing and peak power, and as such, the engine's architecture won't allow it to return return to a longer stroke. But the Superquadro short stroke engine design does allow it to have a larger bore up from 112 to 116mmm, hence the new larger 1285cc displacement was the next best option for the new 1299 Panigale engine - though Ducati doesn't admit to the reason at their EICMA Press introduction other than it was to "keep up with the competitors".

Named Ducati Testastretta DVT, Desmodromic Variable Timing, Ducati's new Desmodromic engine is the first in the world with variable timing on both inlet and exhaust camshafts, leading the way for a whole new generation of such engines.

MotoGP World Championship, Valencia Round 18 of 18

Marquez Ends a Historical 2014 MotoGP Season at Valencia
Valencia Grand Prix, Circuito Ricardo Tormo, Spain, Sunday Nov 9th 2015
- Double MotoGP World Champion Marc Marquez (Repsol Honda RC213V) scored his 13th victory of 2014 at the Gran Premio de la Comunit at Valenciana at the Ricardo Tormo Circuit, today, to become the most successful rider over the course of a premier-class season. The Spanish phenomenon took the record from another Repsol Honda rider, Mick Doohan, who won 12 races during the 1997 500cc World Championship. Movistar Yamaha MotoGP’s Valentino Rossi secured a superb second place under difficult conditions during the 2014 season finale.

Earlier in the day Marquez had been boosted by the superb Moto3 World Championship achieved by his younger brother Alex Marquez (Estrella Galicia 0,0 Honda NSF250RW), which makes the pair the first siblings to win Grand Prix world titles since the dawn of motorcycle Grand Prix racing in 1949.

Jorge Lorenzo Aragon MotoGP action photo Marquez slides inside of early race leader Andrea Iannone who qualified in 2ndm and passed Rossi on the opening lap to lead for two laps on the Parmac Ducati before falling back and eventually retiring.

Starting from pole in what began as a dry race, Rossi took off as soon as the lights dimmed and arrived at the first corner in second place behind compatriot Andrea Iannone. Followed closely by Marc Marquez, the nine-time World Champion was quick to find a strong pace, but as soon as the first lap was finished white flags were waving, signaling rain and allowing riders to come into the pits to change bikes.

Marquez's record-breaking MotoGP ride was nerve-wracking in the extreme, with light drizzle falling after half-distance which had several riders enter the pits to change to their number-two bikes fitted with rain tyres. Marquez - who had made his way into the lead from third place at the end of the first lap - saw his lap times drop several seconds as the rainfall reduced grip. But he bravely and correctly decided to continue on slicks, despite a fall at the recent Aragon Grand Prix, where he had come to grief on a dampened track while using slicks.

Rossi didn’t let the changeable conditions slow him down and set a fastest lap of 1’32.437 on lap five. As things closed up at the front, fans were thoroughly entertained with a heated battle between Rossi, Marquez and Iannone. Sparks were flying from Rossi’s bike on lap 12 as Dani Pedrosa started to get into the mix. Six laps later rain threatened again, allowing the Doctor to reel in Marquez. Rossi kept his head down, but as the track dried again he came just short and finished in a deserved second place, 3.516 seconds behind the front man.

All this time he was under serious pressure from Valentino Rossi (Yamaha) who doggedly chased the youngster until the track started drying out and Marquez increased his pace again to beat the Italian by 3.5 seconds, with team-mate Dani Pedrosa (Repsol Honda RC213V) crossing the line in third place. The pair's Valencia results were enough to win Repsol Honda the team's title for the second consecutive year. Honda had already won the MotoGP Constructors World Championship, for the fourth consecutive time.

Teammate Lorenzo had an unlucky end to the 2014 season. Starting from fourth on the grid, he soon got caught up in a fight with rival Pedrosa. The Movistar Yamaha rider looked to be the stronger of the two until drops of rain began to fall and he took a few laps to get a feel for the situation, falling back to seventh.

As the track started to dry Lorenzo regained confidence and rose to fifth, having retaken Cal Crutchlow and Andrea Dovizioso by lap nine. Four laps later the Spaniard arrived at the back of Iannone’s bike and won a hard battle with him before continuing his hunt for Pedrosa in third, until rain once again disrupted the race. Lorenzo struggled to get the bike stopped in the uncertain conditions and dropped down the order. He decided to come into the pits on lap 20 to switch to his wet bike and rejoined the race in 14th place. Unfortunately the gamble didn’t pay off. He dropped back to 21st and was forced to retire with five laps remaining as the conditions remained dry.

Marquez's 19th career MotoGP win - and his 45th in total across three categories - is the culmination of another astonishing season from the 21-year-old who last year became the youngest rider to win the premier-class title and this year the youngest rider to win the world's most important motorcycling prize twice in succession.

Pedrosa's third-place result was a great return to form after DNFs at the last two events. The former 125 and 250 World Champion once again raced hard throughout, battling his way through from fifth place at the end of the first lap and then resisting the temptation to call into the pits for rain tyres. Although he eventually lost touch with the front two, he continued to run a fast pace in the treacherous conditions.

Stefan Bradl (LCR Honda RC213V) had a difficult final race with Honda. He started well but struggled with grip on the damp track and didn't want to risk a fall in his last ride with the LCR team. The former Moto2 World Champion ended the race in eighth place, just behind the Yamahas of Pol and Aleix Espargaro.

Marc Marquez, Repsol Honda: race winner - “I am so pleased, especially for my brother! It is a very happy day, even more than in Motegi when I was crowned champion. Today Alex took the Moto3 title that he deserved, and to cap it off I was able to close the year with a victory here in Valencia. I congratulate my brother for his season, because both him and Honda have done a great job this year! Now it's time to celebrate in the way that the occasion deserves, because it will be difficult to repeat another season like this. During today's race I was reminded of Aragon, because it was raining and there was a moment in which I considered whether or not to change the bike. In the end we stayed calm and today we were successful with our strategy. It was an ordeal which I enjoyed but suffered a bit at times! Thanks to the whole team for all their efforts this season!”

Valentino Rossi, 2nd, Movistar Yamaha - “I’m happy, because I finished this very positive season for me and my team with a great race and a good result here in Valencia. For me it’s a great achievement to take the pole position and to finish in second place, especially because this race was very difficult and the conditions were very dangerous. I tried to stay concentrated and not to make a mistake. It’s a bit of a shame that I started to suffer a little bit on the right side of the tyre, because I wasn’t so far from Marc, but it still has been a good season. We got second in the championship, a lot of podiums and two victories. Now, we have to work to be even better next year. My bad luck is called Marc Marquez, because without him I can win the championship and a lot of races. He did a fantastic job and won a lot of races. It’s a great pleasure to fight with him, but we are not so far and we never give up and try to come closer. Especially on Tuesday, but also tomorrow we will start working for next season. I am very close to 300 points, but Marquez won a lot more races than me, so me and my team need to improve the Yamaha to try and stay closer during the whole season. The test is important because we have a lot of new stuff to test for next year, so it will be interesting.”


Dani Pedrosa, Repsol Honda: 3r
d - “It has not been my best season and obviously I'm not satisfied, but you have to take the positives from the situation because we learned a lot this year. Over the next few days we have some testing and we will try to get the best out of the bike for the next test, which comes in February. Today's race was difficult. It rained a lot in some areas of the track and it was very hard to keep upright because at other parts of the track it was dry. We had to take risks and also be careful at the same time. On the other hand, we finished on the podium and that's good because we hadn’t taken points at the previous two races.”

On Any Sunday, The Next Chapter - Movie Review
      In today's extensive coverage of motorcycling on TV and the internet, On Any Sunday - The Next Chapter was somewhat disappointing. The original On Any Sunday released in 1971 served as a primer aimed at us enthusiasts back in that day who knew very little about the other exciting segments of the motorcycle sport like dirt track, ice racing and desert racing. On Any Sunday - The Next Chapter, is just a less ambitious and somewhat boring repetitive sequel covering much of the same old stuff. It misses the mark of where much of our motorccyle sport has evolved since then.

And now 45 years later, for all us older and much more knowledgable enthusiasts who are the only people searching out to see On Any Sunday - The Next Chapter, it showed us that nothing was new. Really? There were no insights, technical advancement features (OK there was an electric race bike shown running up Pikes Peak).

There was no real race drama or much informative commentary by producer Dana Brown, the son of original On Any Sunday producer Bruce Brown.

We didn't need to see a return to the same AMA dirt track, Amateur Ice Racing, Speedway, Practice Track and Trail Riding scenes already covered in the first movie.The brief interviews with James Stewart, Mark Marquez, Roland Sands, etc. It made made little sense.

Why the trip to the Bonneville Salt Flats with a couple of privateers on stock bikes which broke down. I'd have loved to have seen a world record Streamliner attempt, or Leslie Porterfield on her turbo Hayabusa streetbike breaking 300mph. What about showing us instead, a 130+ mph race lap with Joey Dunlap at the Isle of Man TT on narrow 2-lane village streets and twisty mountain roads?

The Nitro Circus segment with Travas Pastrona and a few of his more dangerous jumps was cool, but much too short. The visit to Roland Sands' shop didn't even show his bikes, just actor Mickey Rourke saying "Bikes Are Cool." And we saw reruns of MotoGP TV race crashes we've all seen before. Frankly, much of the movie was boring.

Plus it totally ignored Supercross (the most popular form of motorcycle racing in America). World Superbikes and the sportbike segment which exploded over the last 40 years which has kept the Japanese and European bike manufacturers alive. And it ignored the huge Harley Biker craze the last 50 years with scenes like Sturgis and Daytona. And the current Cafe Racer bike movement. And what about the around the world bike trips with actors Ewan McGregor, David Beckham, or the Edelweiss World Tours, etc.?

Red Bull's involvement helped to finance the movie, but it also limited what they covered in the movie. Obviously they didn't want to feature Monster Energy sponsored Supercross, Monster sponsored MotoGP Champion riders like Valentino Rossi and Jorge Lorenzo, or beer drinking Harley riders, World Superbike where Red Bull is not involved, and Monster sponsored Isle of Man TT , etc.

Why rehash the same small 5% off-road market segment that was already covered in the first movie 45 years ago, and ignore the huge 95% of the street bike sport that has evolved since then wth its huge fan base, which would have made The Next Chapter current and profitable. - by Jim Gianatsis, Editor

Edelweiss World Tours, Tour of the Pyrenees on FastDates.com

Edelweiss Motorcycle Tour of the Pyrenees
By Jim Gianatsis / photos by Jim Gianatsis

Barcelona, Spain, June 2014 - For me, there's no more beautiful, educational and exciting place in the world to visit than Western Europe. And to visit parts of it on a world class motorcycle on perfect riding roads without traffic, unencumbered by baggage, with experienced tour guides who know all the best roads and places to stop, is nothing short of nirvana.

This is the definition of an Edelweiss Bike Travel tour. And while they have a tour catalog chock full of motorcycle tours taking place around the world from the far reaches of Africa and Asia, to Australia and America, every one of their European tours is on my bucket list. Especially when they partner their rides up with motorcycle manufacturers like BMW, Ducati and Triumph, with a Start and End point at the company's factory for a visit or at a World Superbike or MotoGP round.   Complete Story Here

World Superbike champion Sylvain Guintoli joins Pata Honda
 Monday Nov 3rd, 2014 - The 2014 World Superbike champion Sylvain Guintoli has signed an agreement to ride for the Pata Honda team alongside Michael van der Mark in the 2015 championship aboard Honda’s CBR1000RR Fireblade SP machine.
 
Guintoli is one of the most widely experienced riders in the World Superbike paddock and won the 2014 title in yesterday’s final round at the Losail International Circuit in Qatar. The French rider, who lives in the UK with his English wife Caroline and their four children, has also ridden at the highest level in MotoGP.
 
The 32-year-old has a total of nine World Superbike wins to his credit, five of which have come this season: at Phillip Island in Australia, Assen in the Netherlands, his home round of Magny-Cours in France last month, and a double race win in Qatar yesterday to end the season in some style. He boasts a total of 40 WSBK podium finishes.
 
Although the 2015 season will be Guintoli’s first ride for Honda, he has a strong historical relationship with the team’s title partner Pata, having ridden for a Pata-sponsored Ducati team in 2012, taking two race victories to finish seventh that season in the World Superbike standings.
 
The announcement of Guintoli’s appointment to the Pata Honda World Superbike team and his new partnership with 2014 World Supersport champion, Michael van der Mark, means that the team will bid farewell to both Jonathan Rea and Leon Haslam. The entire Pata Honda team and Honda Motor Europe offer their very best wishes to both riders in the future careers.

Yonny Hernandez contracts with Ducati to continue with the Pramac Racing Team in 2015 MotoGP World Championship
Oct 31st, 2014 - Ducati Corse is pleased to announce that it has signed an agreement with Yonny Hernandez that will tie the Colombian rider to Ducati for 2015, with an option for 2016.

Hernandez, born on July 25th 1988 in Medellín, made his MotoGP debut in 2012 and began his adventure with Ducati last year in the GP of Aragòn, as replacement for the injured Ben Spies on the Pramac Racing Team Desmosedici machine.

Confirmed by the team for 2014, Yonny has raced this season with a GP13 Factory bike, often showing good form in qualifying and the races: his best career result came last Sunday at Sepang, where he finished seventh. Hernandez currently lies fifteenth overall in the standings with 53 points.

Next year Yonny will continue to race for the Pramac Racing Team, and at the post-race tests in Valencia he will get a first chance to try out the Desmosedici GP14.2 with which he will take part in the 2015 season

Randy de Puniet joins Crescent Suzuki World Superbike for 2015.
Oct 14th 2014 - Crescent Suzuki is delighted to announce its completed rider line-up for the 2015 FIM Superbike World Championship as world-renowned competitor and current Suzuki MotoGP™ test rider Randy de Puniet joins the UK-based team alongside Alex Lowes.

A long-standing racer in Grand Prix, de Puniet has amassed 139 MotoGP race starts and five 250cc GP race wins during his 15 years on the world stage so far. During 2014, he has become instrumental to the development of Suzuki’s 2015 return to GP competition with the all-new GSX-RR.

The 33-year-old Frenchman will enter the World Superbike series full-time with his new Crescent Suzuki squad for the 2015 season but will also continue to test the Suzuki GP machine, with particular responsibility for matching the bike’s performance to MotoGP’s new 2016 tyre provider. De Puniet is very motivated for competitive action aboard the World Superbike specification GSX-R1000, after his successful second-place result as part of the Yoshimura team in the 2014 Suzuka 8 hour endurance race.  

Voltcom Crescent Suzuki will complete its last race of the 2014 season with current riders Eugene Laverty and Alex Lowes at the Losail International Circuit, in Qatar, on November 2nd, before beginning an extensive winter of testing and development with de Puniet and Lowes.

Randy de Puniet: “I’m so happy to be joining Crescent Suzuki for the Superbike World Championship because my target for 2015 was to get back to competing on the race track. Testing for the past year was ok but of course what I really want is to race! I really enjoyed racing in Suzuka this year - to race, to fight and to be on the podium is everything to me. I had the opportunity to join the Crescent team for next year and I’m really happy; my first priority was to stay with Suzuki because I want to stay within this family, and for me this is a new challenge – a new championship, new bike, new tyre, everything is different and I have many things to learn but I am ready for that and I’m very confident. I will be joining a very strong team with a lot of experience and I think the bike will be good next year. We have a good test plan for this winter and I think we will be ready for the first race in Phillip Island next year.”

Paul Denning – Team Manager: “We couldn’t be happier to have secured Randy’s agreement to compete in the 2015 World Superbike Championship on board our GSX-R1000. We needed a high quality rider to replace Eugene; Randy was the obvious choice, and we are very proud to have gained his trust and commitment to race with us next year.”

Terol to join
Althea Racing in 2015

Oct 10th - Spanish website Motoworld.es reported that Nicolas ‘Nico’ Terol, 26, will be soon signing a deal to race in World Superbike next year with team Althea Racing. The 2011 125cc World Champion would contest his rookie year in the series after 10 full seasons spent in the GP paddock.
