    Aprilia's RSV4 does a clean sweep in the opening round at Philip Island, Australia. The first race went to the three Aprila's of Sylvain Guintoli, Eugene Laverty and Michel Fabrizio. It also saw Carlos Checa having a massive accident on his Ducati Panigale. He suffered a minor concussion as a result of the crash.

    In the second race, pole position Checa was not present due to the accident. The race started with Guintoli leading and he led till the penultimate lap, when Laverty made a clean pass on his teammate to take his first win of the season. Marco Melandri took third spot on his BMW. Out of six podiums of the two races, 5 were taken by Aprilia riders!

    That Yamaha R6 is completely missing the straight line speed to Kawasaki's ZX-6R ... Lowes is very competitive in other parts and missing out completely in the straight line because of the lack of speed

    A very interesting piece about how the winners of WSBK races have to slog to reach the pinnacle of their sport. The commitment and sacrifices. -

    BMW pleased with their testing at Jerez -

    Positive test for BMW Motorrad GoldBet at Jerez

    Chaz Davies

    "We accomplished a lot of work over the last two days, and it was a very productive test. We fully focused on working on the electronics and tested a lot of new strategies. It was really interesting and we came up with solutions that have a lot of potential. There is some more work needed but we have another test in a couple of weeks. I think all was very positive, everybody has worked well and I am reasonably happy."
    Marco Melandri

    "My recovery is proceeding well and according to plan. I am training in the pool and - carefully - in the gym. Overall, I am satisfied. Some movements that caused pain before the surgery are no longer a problem. I still have some bone pain, but that is normal after the operation. Now I have to work on fully recovering the joint and the muscle tone. Yesterday I had an ultrasound examination and a visit to Dr. Porcellini, and he was positive as well. Unfortunately I could not join the team for the tests but we are regularly in touch so I was constantly updated on how the tests proceeded and which solutions they were finding."
