Calendar Kitten and Tiger Woods' mistress Jamie Jungers
makes her first Appearance in Fast Dates 2010

January 1st - As we revealed here last month, Las Vegas based model and our 2010 Fast Dates Calendar Kitten Jamie Jungers was the 4th girl to be revealed to have had an affair with billion dollar golfing sports icon Tiger Woods!
Jamie looks surprisingly similar to Tiger's wife Elin, and may just have been the perfect out-of-town play girl replacement for Tiger while wife Elin was left home pregnant and tending to the babies.

Tiger Woods likes scoring on and off the gold course.

Jamie Jungers is revealing that her affair with Tiger Woods lasted two years. Jungers, a beautiful 26-year old blonde model from Las Vegas, has made a deal to tell her story to a British newspaper. Jungers' affair with the golfer fit the pattern of Tiger's extra-marital dalliances, with the relationship spanning two years but contact sporadic. Jungers is a look alike for Woods' wife Elin. Jungers met Tiger in Las Vegas and their romantic hookups took place in several different cities, with Tiger arranging for him to meet her.

Fast Dates Calendar photographer Jim Gianatsis met model Jamie at the 2008 Miller Motorsports, USA, World Superbike race where we hired and photographed her with 3 other models that weekend for the new 2010 Fast Dates World Superbike Calendar. Jamie is featured in 6 photos in the Calendar.

Look for our exclusive Fast Dates Calendar pictures of Jamie in the New York Post newspaper beginning on Sunday December 6th going out to 700,000 readers and on the website.

MV Agust F4

MV Agusta's 's Exciting New 2010 F4 1000cc Superbike,
Brutale 990cc and 1190cc Naked Sportbikes
Jan 1st - The new MV Agusta F4, a motorcycle that from the day of its introduction has been judged as the most beautiful motorcycle in the world. The F4 defines beauty. The new F4 is not an evolution of the previous motorcycle, but it is a new project that has been studied down to the last nut and bolt, from the first to the last curve of the bodywork. No mass produced street motorcycle can boast as many accolades as the MV Agusta F4, which is the absolute reference for performance, speed and raw beauty.

The F4 is the synthesis of Italian craftsmanship, no compromise design principles and the application of the most technologically advanced materials in a single motorcycle. The F4 is a pure two-wheeled work of art. Every single component has been studied down to the finest detail and has been redesigned and/or relocated with the aim of gaining an ultra-solid, light weight and perfectly balanced motorcycle.

The ergonomics are completely new, meticulously calculated with a single objective in mind: to help the rider utilize the increased performance when riding at the limit. With its advanced technology and extraordinary performance, the F4 defines the new standard for supersport motorcycles.

MV Agusta Brutale 1090Brutale 1090R in Red / Metalic Silver

2010 BRUTALE 1090RR / 990R

Introduction – The top model in the new Brutale range is the 1090RR, an extreme motorcycle with racing components that satisfies those who seek high performance in a fascinating and elegant motorcycle. 38 Rider Word titles and 37 Constructor championships in MV Agusta's history are reflected in this project, designed without compromise and above all the new Brutale follows the new "Made in MV" philosophy which stands for total quality in a project entirely designed and developed internally.

MV Agusta takes a generational step forward with the creation of the new Brutale 990R. The new Brutale has preserved the significant style features of previous versions and is recognisable at a glance. However the Brutale is new in 85% of its components, improving its looks, its performance and its ease of use. Many of these parts have been designed and crafted by MV Agusta, rather than sourced from market suppliers, improving precision and functionality and highlighting the "Made in MV" concept.

James Parker's RADD Front Suspension System
An exciting and inovative design. The only problem is the RADD system takes the place of the large front mounted radiator cooling systemused in current sportbikes and racebikes. Two smaller radiators would need to be fitted on both sides of the RADD suspension without widening the bikes front profile.

New 2009-2010 World Superbike and Motocourse Yearbooks

If you are a real roadracing enthusiast, here's the next step in your library collection, the official 2009-2010 season roadracing annuals from SBK World Superbike and Motocourse. Both annuals are beautiful covetable quality books providing exciting race-by-race coverage in story and spectacular photography of the just completed 2009 Championships, along with rider and bike features, and a preview of the upcoming 2010 season.

The Motocourse Annual covers both MotoGP and World Superbike, as well as the Superbike Championships in top countries like Britain and the USA. While the Superbike Yearbook only covers World Superbike, it is our favorite of the two as it includes technical photo features of all the top factory bikes, a feature of the new World Champion which this past 2009 season was American Ben Spies, and it has great articles by World Superbike Press officer Julian Thomas.

Teen Supermodels Go Topless in the new 2010 Pirelli Calendar
January 1st 2010 - The 2010 Pirelli Calendar, now in its 37th edition, was presented to the press and to guests and collectors from around the world, at its global premiere in London. The much-awaited appointment with 'The Cal', a cult object for over 40 years, was held this year at Old Billingsgate, the suggestive late 19th century building on the banks of the Thames, where from 1875 to 1982 it housed the capital city's fish market.

Following China, immortalized by Patrick Demarchelier in the 2008 edition, and Botswana shot by Peter Beard a year later, 2010 is the year of Brazil and of American photographer Terry Richardson, the celebrated "enfant terrible" known for his provocative and outrageous approach.

Pirelli Calendar 2010Photographer Terry Richards with Pirelli's 11 teen supermodels photographed in Barbados

The 2010 edition is a clear expression and Terry Richardson is its interpreter: he portrays figures without frills, removed from complicated and artificial contexts set by fashion trends. The setting has no showy backgrounds or schemes, in line with the photographer's simplicity and focus on the essential. "A great photographer," says Richardson, "captures the moment - that's why I shoot without extra equipment and without assistants. My technique is the absence of technique: the lens is my eye, my charisma, my ability to capture moments of truth, whatever they may be, picture angles, use of color, light, scenery - these have always been the essential aspects of my photographic art."

In the 30 images that scan the months of 2010, Terry Richardson depicts a return to a playful, pure Eros. Through his lens he runs after fantasies and provokes, but with a simplicity that sculpts and captures the sunniest side of femininity. He portrays a woman who is captivating because she is natural, who plays with stereotypes in order to undo them, who makes irony the only veil she covers herself with. This is a return to the natural, authentic atmospheres and images of the '60s and '70s. It is a clear homage to the Calendar's origins, a throwback to the first editions by Robert Freeman (1964), Brian Duffy (1965) and Harry Peccinotti (1968 and 1969).

Rosie HuntingtonRosie Huntington-Whitley

The calendar features 11 different barely legal teen supermodels Catherine McNeil, Abbey Lee Kershaw, Miranda Kerr, Eniko Mihalik, Marloes Horst, Lily Cole, Daisy Lowe, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Georgina Stojilijkovic, Gracie Carvalho and Ana Beatriz Barros.

The Pirelli Calendar is distributed primarily in Europe as a gift to corporate and industry friends. It's production budget is usually close to $1 million dollars to photograph, design and print just 10,000 copies. It has never been offered for sale to the general public. And because of the current sexual harassment lawsuit mentality in America, U.S. Pirelli has very limited distribution, if any, of The Calendar in the USA. However, you can find boot leg copies of the 2010 Pirelli Calendar from Europe on selling for between $200-300.

Paris Vogue 2010 Calendar
For those of us who can't afford to score a copy of the 2010 Pirelli Calendar, we recommend the complimentary 2010 Paris Vogue Calendar which is included free with the January 2010 issue of Vogue magazine ($10.95) found on most major news stands. The Vogue Calendar is much more artistic and creative than Pirelli's, and the fact it is published by the world's largest women's fashion magazine makes it socially acceptable to hang up almost anywhere despite the nudity.

Interestingly enough, this year's Pirelli Calendar photographer Terry Richardson also shot last's year's 2009 Paris Vogue Calendar. The Vogue Calendars's pictures are much more artistic, sexy and creatively styled, thanks to the magazine's editorial staff helping with the shoots, while this year's Richardson photographed 2010 Pirelli Calendar looks much less creative and pre-planed in its shoots.

Davide Tardozzi
New Team Manager at BMW Motorrad Motorsport World Superbike

Munich/Stephanskirchen, 07January 2010. - BMW Motorrad Motorsport is restructuring its team management in the Superbike World Championship. Davide Tardozzi (50) has been appointed to a senior position at Team BMW Motorrad Motorsport with immediate effect. The Italian will head up team management and operational control at the race tracks in the Superbike World Championship.

Up to now, Rainer Bumel (43) has been responsible for engineering, team management and team organisation in his capacity as BMW Motorrad Motorsport Project Manager in the Superbike World Championship. Bumel will continue as Head of Project Management and Project Management Engineering.
The collaboration between BMW Motorrad Motorsport and Tardozzi is part of a package of measures aimed at optimising the competitiveness of BMW Motorrad Motorsport in the Superbike World Championship. In his role as Team Manager, Tardozzi will look after the operational management of the team at races and tests, act as an interface between the team and the promoters and organisers of the Superbike World Championship, and provide a link to suppliers.

"I am delighted finally to be able to announce our partnership with Davide Tardozzi," said BMW Motorrad Motorsport Director Berthold Hauser. "The new structure ensures that the team will be well set up for the future. Team management and team organisation are important areas in which we can see further potential for improvement. The key here is to approach every situation in a structured and target-led way. This applies to both general processes and tactical decisions with a direct influence over performance. With his many years of experience in the sport, Davide will play a decisive role here. At the same time, the restructuring will allow Rainer Bumel to fully focus on the core areas of overall project management and engineering."

Tardozzi said: "I imagine a lot of people will be surprised to hear of my decision to join BMW. However, for me the decision was simple. I had offers from MotoGP, but my heart is in the Superbike World Championship and I feel at home here. BMW Motorrad Motorsport is a young and hungry team, and that gives me the challenge I have been looking for. I'm looking forward to working behind the scenes to the benefit of the team. I know that I can fulfil this role at BMW. Of course, already knowing our riders Troy and Ruben well makes my job easier.2010 will be a tough year, as there are many good riders and teams in the Superbike World Championship. Nevertheless, I firmly believe that BMW can take a big step forward over the coming year."

Tardozzi rode in motorcycle races himself from 1984 to 1992. In his first two seasons he competed in the 250 cc World Championship and later moved to the Superbike class. He finished third in the 1988 Superbike World Championship after racking up five race wins, and in 1991 he secured the European Superbike Championship title. Tardozzi has remained involved - and continued to enjoy success - in motorcycle racing since bringing the curtain down on his career as a rider. Since 1995, as a team principal, he has won a total of nine manufacturers' titles and eight riders' titles in the Superbike World Championship.

Warning Contains Nudity

 Bologna (Italy), Thursday 7th January 2010 - Just a few days before the 2010 Superbike season officially gets going with testing at Portimao from 22nd January, the Ducati Xerox Team confirms that it has undergone some significant internal reorganization.

With Noriyuki Haga and Michel Fabrizio both back on board their Ducati 1198s for 2010, a series of structural changes within Ducati have allowed for a certain degree of reorganization within the Ducati Xerox team.
Ernesto Marinelli is the newly appointed Ducati Xerox Team manager, and so stepping into Marinelli's shoes as technical manager of the squad is Marco Lozej who will also have the role of track engineer for Michel Fabrizio. With Ducati since 2000, Marco has most recently been responsible for  the GP development team.

Japanese rider Haga also has a new track engineer in the shape of Luca Ferraccioli, who returns to the Borgo-Panigale factory after a four year stint as race engineer with the British GSE Racing outfit. Working alongside Luca, in the role of electronics engineer to Noriyuki, will be Marco Frigerio who moves from the factory MotoGP team to the Superbike side for the coming season.  The final change on Haga' s side is the appointment of a new tyre technician, Massimo Meneghin.
The final addition to the "new-look" team is Una Conway, Irish and in Italy for more than a decade, who comes on board as Team Coordinator and Hospitality Assistant.
“2010 will be a little different but I am extremely confident as well as optimisticâ€, commented Ernesto Marinelli, the Ducati Xerox Team Manager.

Despite the important reorganization within the team, in reality most of the new members have already been working in Ducati for some time. Both Marco Lozej and Luca Ferraccioli have worked in Ducati for years and have a wealth of experience as well as great technical ability and personality. 2010 once again represents a new challenge - we have faced many over the years and in most cases we have come out victorious. We will be doing our very best to take another title this year; our riders are in great shape and the entire team is more motivated than ever. We’re all impatient to get back on track and are looking forward to the Portimao test.

Stop by Pro Italia Motors, Glendale CA on Saturday afernoon, January 2nd 2010, as Musician and Disk Jockey Steve Jones takes delivery of his newly customized Ducati. Steve here to see his bike for the first time as well as John Morena and Bill Oberman, the craftsmen. Pro Italia fans will remember John and Bill from their beautful Sport Classic that Pro Italia has had on display in the shop and up at the Laguan Seca MotoGP. Be there to see their latest creation before it rides off into the sunset. They'll have some refresments for the event.

And then Steve will be on stage later than night at the Roxy on the Sunset Strip in Hollywood , CA,with the rest of the Ducati All-Stars. The band is made up of Ducati enthusiasts who will be getting together to kick out the jams. The band is made up of Steve Jones - guitar (Sex Pistols), Jason Bonham - drums (Led Zeppelin 2008), Steve Stevens - guitar (Billy Idol), Billy Morrison - guitar & vocals (Camp Freddy & Circus Diablo), Mark McGrath - Vocals (Sugar Ray), Chris Wyse - bass (The Cult), Donovan Leitch - vocals (Camp Freddy & son of legendary singer Donovan Leitch) and Franky Perez - vocals (Scars on Broadway)

Get tickets via Ticketmaster while they are still in existance. There will be "first come - first serve" Ducati exclusive parking in the front of the club. Free motorcycle parking will be available on the west side. Again, ACT!

Metric OEM exports’ falloff reaches 100,000-plus motorcycles
Powersports Business
December 31, 2009- Metric manufacturers shipped at least 100,000 fewer motorcycles to the United States in a recent three-month period compared to a year ago, according to the Japan Automobile Manufacturers Association (JAMA).

The latest sign of the significant export decrease came from November data. JAMA members, which include Honda, Yamaha, Suzuki and Kawasaki, shipped 5,553 motorcycles to the United States in November, a 84 percent drop from the year-ago month.

In the past three months, JAMA members have sent 15,812 motorcycles to the United States. In comparison, that number topped 118,000 in the prior year.

Export falloffs also have occurred in Canada. Exports there in November fell 67.5 percent to 875.

Roger Edmondson to Leave AMA Pro Racing
DAYTONA BEACH, FL December 30, 2009
- Roger Edmondson will be leaving his position as Chairman, Managing Member and Chief Executive Officer of AMA Pro Racing effective January 1, 2010.

Edmondson, a pioneer in motorcycle racing and one of the original Managing Members of the AMA Pro Racing organization (actualy owned by the Daytona Motorsports Group), will be leaving to deal with some unforeseen health issues that necessitate his full attention.

"Roger's health is first and foremost in our minds," said David Atlas, Chief Operating Officer, AMA Pro Racing. "Roger's significant, multi-decade contribution to motorcycle racing is well known but nothing is more important than his health."

Zemke to Jordan Suzuki
Jan 1st, 2009 - It appears fan favorite Jake Zemke will have a ride for 2010 after all. And a good one at that. With who? Jordan Suzuki.

You heard it here first! Reputable sources tell us that Aaron Yates has re-signed to ride the No. 23 machine while his teammate on the No. 54 Jordan Motorsports bike will be Zemke, with previous rider Geoff May no longer on the team. This comes as somewhat of a surprise considering the relationship the team has had with May. Regardless, they are getting a talented and always popular rider in Zemke.

The 2008 Formula Xtreme Champion has a host of AMA Pro Racing wins to his name, though most on a 600cc machine, including five in FX and one in Supersport during his championship season. He does have three Superbike wins to his credit, two coming for Erion Honda at Brainerd International Raceway and Mid-Ohio, while the other was for the factory Honda squad at Miller Motorsports Park aboard the previous generation CBR1000RR in the midst of the Mladin-Spies era, proving to be one of the only riders to break their dominate win streak. This is important as out source tells us Zemke will be riding in American Superbike on a Suzuki GSX-R1000. Also of note, Zemke has a Daytona 200 win to his name, coming in ’06 for the Erion team.

The Paso Robles, California native makes the switch to Suzuki after nine years aboard Hondas, something that could prove to be challenging for the versatile rider. Though with a team as solid as the Gemini-run Jordan group behind him, one would think the 34-year-old veteran will quickly be on pace.

No word yet if National Guard has re-upped as the title sponsor of the team or if Zemke will run under Jordan colors.

to Bring Formula One to Streets of Rome

Dec 20th - Bernie Ecclestone has agreed a deal that will see Formula 1 come to Rome's streets, says course planner Maurizio Flammini, founder and producer of SBK World Superike

Bernie Ecclestone has agreed a deal which would see Formula 1 race on the streets of Rome, according to course planner Maurizio Flammini.
