Suzuki is the current National Superbike Championship winning bike in America and Britain. Their all new generation (above) 2005 GSXR1000 will spearhead Alstare Suzuki's return to World Superbike next season. Newly signed former SBK champ Troy Corser riding the old '04 bike bested the reigning WSBK champs Ducati Corse new 2005 factory Superbikesa at last month's winter tests.

British Superbike Championship winner
Alstare Suzuki Confirms Return to World Superbike in 2005

Team Suzuki Press Office, Dec 11, 2004: Team Alstare Suzuki Corona Extra is aiming for World Superbike Championship victory next year with two new riders and a brand new generation 2005 GSX-R1000 Suzuki.
After several seasons in World Supersport, the Francis Batta-managed squad has signed Australian Troy Corser and Japan’s Yukio Kagayama for their return to the prestigious class

Corser, who set the fastest time during three days of testing at Valencia in Spain recently! - on a 2003-model GSX-R1000 against the latest bikes - can’t wait to race the Alstare-prepared 2005 machine. He said: "I am really looking forward to my new challenge with Team Alstare in 2005. For many years I have been impressed with their skilful set-up and structure, their professionalism and now I am working with them.

"I cannot wait to get my leg over the 2005 GSX-R1000 Suzuki. It is a fabulous looking machine and, as it is bound to be an improvement over the previous model, I am sure that I will be able to do the business with it. After all, the previous bike managed to win several AMA titles in America and also the British Superbike Championship, so we know it’s a great bike.

”I am very happy to have a couple of my old mechanics from 2000 and 2001 with me in the team and feel that we now have the complete package to win the title. I know the 2005 GSX-R1000 is an all-new bike and we will all have to get used to it, but I am not looking at 2005 as ! a learning year with the bike - I am looking to take the title!

”After the past couple of years, it’s hard for me to explain how fired up I am about 2005 and the prospects ahead. I know I have the ability to win and, with the tremendous support of Francis Batta and the whole Alstare team, I expect to be holding the trophy at the end of the year."

Kagayama, who raced his Rizla GSX-R1000 Suzuki into third place in this season’s British Superbike Championship, is also excited about his new challenge. He said: "I am very happy to be competing in the World Superbike Championship, which is the most prestigious race series for production bikes. Above all, I feel very happy and lucky to be in Team Alstare led by Mr Francis Batta. His team is very professional, full of experience and is always one of the strongest teams in the paddock. I am looking forward to working with them and feel sure that my previous experience will be to the team’s advantage.

”I am very excited about riding the 2005 Suzuki GSX-R1000. The! GSX-R1000 has always been a highly competitive bike as proved in the winning of numerous titles in the USA and British Superbike Championships. I believe that the all-new 2005 GSX-R1000 will be more competitive than the previous bike and, with it, I feel sure I can fulfil the expectations of Team Alstare and all the fans who support me.

”My team-mate Troy-San won the World Superbike Championship in 1996 and he is a great rider and fierce competitor. I will do my best to match his ability, but my goal is to beat him and bring the world title to Alstare!"

Francis Batta, who will run the team with support from Suzuki’s European distributor, Suzuki International Europe, said: “"All of us at Alstare are delighted to be back in the World Superbike Championship and there is a real buzz of excitement about our prospects next year.“We are all very happy to have former World Superbike Champion Troy Corser riding for us and his wealth of experience is ! going to be a tremendous asset to the team.

“Yukio Kagayama is new to us, but we have heard many good things about him so we are looking forward to starting our relationship. He is a character and much liked by the fans and I think he and Troy are going to be a great combination. Yukio will have to learn most of the circuits, but I am sure he is going to push hard right from the start.

”The new GSX-R1000 Suzuki has only been seen in a couple of bike shows but it has already caused a great deal of interest worldwide. The pre vious bike was good enough to win both the British and American Superbike Championships this year and the new bike promises to be even better.

“We at Alstare are doing all the work on the GSX-R1000 ourselves and we have taken on extra staff to make sure our bike will be in the best possible shape and condition for Troy and Yukio. Now we are waiting for the Championship to begin and the winning to start!"

Oh my god!... Supermodels get naked in Brazil!
The 2005 Pirelli Calendar

Images for editorial review use curtesy Pirelli

On November 18th 2004, at the Copacabana Fort in Rio de Janeiro, was the world premiere of the Pirelli 2005 Calendar, the most exclusive world event for beauty lovers, fashion followers and photography connoisseurs.

Shot by world-renowned French photographer Patrick Demarchelier, the 2005 Pirelli Calendar chose the spectacular setting of Rio de Janeiro, the metropolis that, as Naomi Campbell says (appearing for the third time in the "The Cal") "reflects the Brazilian people's energetic and positive spirit".

17 year old supermodels get loose in Rio de Jenerio for Pirelli.
Demarchelier has grasped and assimilated the spirit of Brazil: 'O espirito do Brazil' is in fact the title chosen for the backstage film and of Rio de Janeiro, a city dominated by strong contrasts, required a masterly use of light to express strong contrasts and obtain striking portraits, black and white only

The black and white photographs investigate the most mysterious aspects of the models seeking out the invisible source of their allure: alongside the already mentioned Naomi Campbell (Victoria's Secret, America's Next Top Model) are Filippa Hamilton and Isabeli Fontana (already chosen by Bruce Weber for the 2003 edition), Adriana Lima (the current featured model for Victoria's Secret and Maybeline cosmetics), Diana Dondoe, Erin Wasson, Euguenia Volodina, Julia Stegner, Liliane Ferrarezi, Marija Vujovic, Michelle Buswell, "Valentina" and Valeria Bohm.

A truly an international cast with three Brazilians, two Americans, one Russian, one Montenegrin, one Romanian, one Swede and one German, ranging in age from a just turned 17 to the legerndary Naomi Campbell in her mid 30's. For the inside story on the very sexy, and very nude calendar go to Pirelli 2005.

Hot Chicks that Kick Ass
Jessica Beil: Blade Trinity

Jessica Beil makes her first appearance in the third and final installment of Blade Trinity as Abagail, the hottest kick ass member of a group of vampire slayers known as the Nightstalkers who come to the aid of Blade star Wesley Snipes.

For years, Blade has fought against the vampires in the cover of night, but now he must join forces with a clan of human vampire hunters he never knew existed, The Nightstalkers. Together with Abigail Jessica Biel, (Texas Chainsaw Massacre) and Hannibal Ryan Reynolds, two deftly trained Nightstalkers, Blade follows a trail of blood to the an ancient creature that is also hunting him … the original vampire, Dracula.

Right: Abagail's weapon of choice is a very deadly crossbow with phosporous tipped arrow heads guaranteed to give blood sucking vampire a hot flash!

somewhat naked in Gear.

Back in the late 1990's Jessica was the teen darling of the WB Chanel's sickly sweet drama 7th Heaven. But when she turned 18 Jessica shed her good girl image and clothes by posing nearly nude in Gear magazine to break her contract and get off the show so she could persue more mature and sexy movie rolls. We are glad she did.

International Motorcycle Show at Long Beach Brings out The Monsters

Long Beach , CA - December 4-6th - The search for the coolest Monster in North America continued with round three at the Cycle World International Motorcycle Show's Southern California round. The competition was the fiercest yet, with amazing Monsters from Southern California, Arizona, and Nevada. Also on display at this show was the Desmo Chopper by MotoCreations. This bike drew huge crowds of Ducatisti, Harley, and other riders.

All the entrants at Long Beach had excellent Monsters, making judging a difficult challenge. So, Ducati recruited some professionals for the task. The celebrity panel of judges included Eric Bostrom from the Parts Unlimited Ducati Austin AMA team, Doug Polen the 2-time World Superbike Champion. The experts awarded 1st place to Bill Johnson from Mesa, Arizona for his turbocharged 1996 Monster 900. Bill's bike makes 112 HP at the rear wheel with the forced induction system. Aside from the chrome appearance, the bike features a ceramic coated spaghetti pipe exhaust manifold which is a work of art itself. When asked what the favorite part of his Monster was, Bill said, "I'm torn between the turbocharger system or the chrome finish." This is exactly what the judges concluded as well.

2nd place went to Las Vegas resident, Keith Myers and his 1999 Ducati Monster 900S. Keith's bike was visually stunning and had the performance to back it up. With the Ferracci 12:1 pistons, 39mm flatside carbs, and a host of other goodies, Keith says he has no trouble keeping up with just about any other bike on the road. And he rides this beautiful machine regularly too; it is not a trailer queen.

Alvin Egerer's "Terminator" 1995 Monster 900 placed third in the show. Alvin's bike has already graced the pages of magazines with its unique tail section and paintwork. The 916 swingarm and forks are a nice touch too. Ultimately, the fans loved the vintage look of John Pace's Monster, awarding it the "People's Choice" for Long Beach. John's bike brought people back to the early days of Ducati with this historic paint scheme and custom under seat exhaust. But looks aren't all that's important, the bike also has a 944cc kit and 12:1 compression pistons.

Charlie Morey
Former Cycle News and Dirt Rider magazine editor Charlie Morey and I go back a long ways... to covering the Florida Winter AMA Series together as motojournalists in the early 1970s in the era of imortilalized motocross legends like "Rokon Don " Kudawski, "Tony D" Distefano and Gary Bailey.

Charlie stepped into my editorial position at Cycle News East in 1973, and made to the move to California with managing editor Jack Mangus when CN East and West combined in 1976. Charlie left Cycle News in 1983 to join Peterson's new Dirt Rider magazine as managing editor. Charlie remained at the helm of Dirt Rider for nealy 20 year's until Peterson sold out to FHM Publictions and all the high paid management staff were let go to increase profits.

The last 5 years have seen Charlie relax and return to his long time passion of art and landscape photography.
Still living in Sherman Oaks, CA, with a hard working a supporting wife to pay the mortgage, Chalie now has the change to share his beautiful photography with the rest of the world at select galleries, Art Shows and exhibits in the Los Angels area and on his website. He recently was awarded an exclusive grant to photograph Yellowstone National Park, and we are proud to own examples of his beautiful fall landscape pictures from his home in New England, and city scapes of Los Angeles. - Jim Gianatsis

Charlie and his photography are currently featured in the December issue of Valley Magazine and online at

World Superbike Winter Testing at Valencia

Valencia, Spain
13-14 December 2004

COLD AND WET SHROUDS VALENCIA TESTS. A strong contingent of 2005 SBK and Supersport Championship contenders, attending an unofficial test at Valencia on 13 and 14 December, found their plans to test their new machines somewhat hampered by the cold and generally wet weather conditions. After a first day blighted by early rains, and the wet track taking time to dry, many of the teams’ hopes were pinned on better weather on day two. Another day of early wet conditions, and a track that held water all day in the single digit temperatures, meant that most teams finished their sessions early, looking to early season tests in 2005 to complete their planned improvements. Valuable wet weather information was nonetheless gathered for official tyre supplier, Pirelli.

PITT TAKES SECOND HELPINGS. 2005 Yamaha signing Andrew Pitt had his second test on the YZF-R1, having spent three sun-kissed days at Valencia in mid November. With new suspension, slipper clutch and engine mapping modifications to test, Pitt worked through the days but was not able to try out all the new parts for his official Yamaha. He set a best time approaching the 1’40s bracket.

MORE NEW YAMAHA INTEREST. Yamaha power has shown to be the choice of the DFX Racing team this year, the former Ducati runners having their first combined tests with three riders, Jose Luis Cardoso, Marco Borciani and Miguel Praia. With ultimate fastest times from the test proving to be near meaningless in the poor weather conditions, local rider Cardoso nevertheless set competitive times while long term DFX employee Borciani and 2004 rookie Praia needed time may need time to make the transition to four-cylinder power, after their Ducati seasons in 2004.

DUCATI STILL FAST. Despite the absence of the official Fila Ducati squad from this unofficial test session, one Ducati rider put his name right in with the best – Lorenzo Lanzi. The 2004 factory Supersport rider makes the jump to Superbike in 2005, and at Valencia was running his Scuderia Caracchi 999 hard to set a 1’40.0 lap time. Affected by the weather as much as any other, Lanzi had an off on day one, saving his best lap for day two.

WALKER TESTING SUSPENSION. The PSG-1 Kawasaki team of Chris Walker and Mauro Sanchini doggedly lapped Valencia, as Walker attempted to overcome some issues of rear end performance on his 2005 machine. He tried different rear shocks and swingarms on his ZX-10, as he searched for a useable set-up to take to the next tests.

Hanging out with
Patrick Demarchelier

Ducati Corse has announced that its US-based Factory Team has chosen to use Dunlop tyres for the 2005 and 2006 AMA Superbike championships.

The agreement means that the Parts Unlimited Ducati Austin pairing of Eric Bostrom and new signing Neil Hodgson will race their factory Ducati 999R machines on Dunlop tyres in the 11-round/18-race series.

Neil Hodgson will get his first chance to test the 2005 “package” at the Ducati Corse development tests organised at Jerez de la Frontera (Spain) on December 16-17. Both riders will then continue their preparation for the new season at Daytona from January 3-5.

Ducati Corse also expressed its gratitude to Michelin, the team’s partner for 2004, for their valuable collaboration which culminated in Eric Bostrom’s pole position at Daytona, two second places at Fontana and a win at Pike's Peak.
