Cal Crutchlow To Join Ducati MotoGP

Thu, 01 Aug 2013 00:00:00 -0700

Reports are coming in from Europe stating in 2014 Cal Crutchlow will be once again teaming up with Andrea Dovizioso, this time on the unruly and uncompetitive Ducati Desmosedici. This despite his current Yamaha Tech 3 team receiving financial assistance from the factory to give Crutchlow a significant pay increase, something Yamaha boss Lin Jarvis said was “unusual.” The deal is set to be officially announced Friday. While the Yamaha offer was alluring, the former World Supersport champion has been putting in strong performances this season — securing a pole position and occasionally beating factory riders Valentino Rossi and Jorge Lorenzo — which has prompted him to demand a factory Yamaha M1 by 2015.

NASCAR Star Greg Biffle Also Plays On Two Wheels – Video

Thu, 25 Jul 2013 00:00:00 -0700

I’ll admit, as a fan of road racing (both two- and four-wheeled), I’ve never really understood the allure of NASCAR. I know that series runs on a few road courses throughout the year, but the racing never attracted my attention. As such, I dismissed many of the drivers, too.
