You’ve seen it racing on the track between 2003 and 2006 and now the time has come for it to be seen on the streets. No, it’s not Jay (although he’s riding), it’s the new Ducati Desmosedici RR that he just bought and has the pleasure of presenting to us today.
Take the short time and go through Jay’s brief history on Ducati bikes and then enjoy CEO’s Michael Lock presentation and the full test run I was talking about earlier. What a great bike! It really does miracles in the right hands of this “58 year old guy”.
Competition riders, especially the ones who dedicate their lives to motocross, ride either for the joy of winning and if that never happens, at least they had a great time doing what they know best. What I know is that the adrenaline rush pushes them to the highest culms of success and the ones that reach that point often say that they ride to be remembered.
Such a motocross rider is Brad Lackey, one of the first racers in the United States. His career unreeled in the 1970s and 1980s (...) > Full story
We are witnessing what seems to be an overall improvement in the racing performance of the recently-entered motorcycle pilot and this can only be a good thing, but not necesarily with good results.
As Michael Schumacher seems not to be afraid of anything, his confidence increases and meets the bad side of racing on two wheels instead of four. During the second run of the German Superbike Championship, the famous racer was the protagonist of a slip that fortunately didn’t had any consequences and allowed him to finish the race.
On the track of Nurburgring Schumi slipped in the 11th lap when he situated on the seventeenth position. Even though it suffered no injuries and the bike wasn’t heavily damaged, the former Formula 1 champion confesses:
“It’s been a shame because I was enjoying. I braked too early with the front and I ended the steering. Race one had gone very well and finished on the 22th position.”
And this is how the former Ferrari rider checks its second fall. The first had taken place on the same bike, a Honda CBR1000RR, on the track of Oschersleben.
Michael Schumacher is into motorcycling more than everybody expected it to be. Here it is taking photos with pilots on the circuit of Bresse a few days ago and then doing a few statements before it gets rolling on to the circuit. Go Schumi!
After all that talk about how Michael Schumacher started racing motorcycles we now show you this video of the Formula 1 seven times world champion riding the KTM SuperDuke and getting of it with a big smile on its face. This short film was made in Misano, Italy at the Schumi KTM race so the occasion couldn’t have been better.
Among the current pilots, the most suitable to inaugurate the Indianapolis track, which will host the Red Bull Indianapolis GP of the 2008 MotoGP World Championship, was Nicky Hayden. Born in Kentucky, America’s national pride who has earned his first premier league title in 2006 didn’t wanted to miss the opportunity of being the first to cross the gates of the new Indy dedicated to MotoGP and so it didn’t.
Even more, he has done it in the true American early style (...) > Full story
Ok, let’s see how we ended up writing this news. There was first the hearing, the denial, the polemics and then the confirmation, but it was all worth it. Michael Schumacher loves the two wheels almost as it does with the four so the Seven Times World Champion in Formula 1 has finally proved it its first official Superbike race.

Did you go at the movie Easy Rider when it was rolling back in 1969? Starring Dennis Hopper, Peter Fonda and Jack Nicholson, the movie captures the journey across America of two motorcyclists in total freedom. Also famous due to its soundtrack called Born to be Wild, composed and interpreted in the late sixties by Steppenwolf, the movie had a lot to do with the rebel attitude that characterizes the period.

Valentino Rossi will continue being the image of Dainesse for 2008 only that the motorcycle clothing producer intends on widening its audience and it so brings Alessia Piovan alongside the MotoGP racer in a concept entitled “Dainesse Lifestyle”.
There is an entire campaign going on, but this new partnership promises to make Dainesse even more desired among motorcycle riders and not only. This is where the young cinema star enters the scene.
Photographer Toni Thorimbert intended on catching scenes of daily life activities and it so brings the products even closer to your heart. The idea was perfect considering the fact that if Valentino would have been on its wheels, we’ll be all looking at the bike, not the riding equipment. We can only guess what game they are playing.
