Hayden's Best Showing This Season at Catalunya

Posted in Motorsports by Me on June 15, 2009

So Nicky Hayden hasn’t been doing as well as I had hoped this year. Right now he’s in 19th place, mostly due to a crappy first few races involving crashes or various sorts. That Duc’ just wasn’t gelling with him. This weekend at Catalunya, though, Hayden pulled out 10th place after starting in the back of the pack and passing several other riders. Good job!

I’ve read in a few places that Hayden’s career in MotoGP is probably over after this year and he will move to World Superbike in 2010. I would be totally okay with that, since I am starting to become more of a fan of WorldSBK as my knowledge of the motorcycle racing world matures. I do hope he can do well in the rest of this MotoGP season, though, just because he’s a swell guy and I want to see an American do well.

In First Place: Team Agni

Posted in Motorsports by Me on June 12, 2009

Rob Barber, riding Team Agni’s electric GSX-R600, won the first TTXGP at the Isle of Man. He was followed by Thomas Schoenfelder riding for XXL, and Mark Buckley on Brammo’s Enertia TTR. Congratulations Team Agni!

Seven teams competed in the race after the rest failed to qualify or broke down during the race. In the end the race was a little anticlimactic, but I suppose that is to be expected with new technology. Hopefully we’ll see this race again next year with stronger and more teams.

TTXGP Online Broadcast

I am not totally positive that this will work, but this is the best source I have been able to find for a broadcast of the TTXGP. ITV4 in the UK is broadcasting the race at 10:45 GMT. Hopefully they will be webcasting it, too.

(Note: ITV4’s webcast requires Silverlight. Sorry.)
