There's another episode of the Paddock Pass Podcast out, and this one is a corker. WorldSBK commentator and Paddock Pass Podcast regular Steve English sat down with Jensen Beeler of Asphalt & Rubber to go over the state of WorldSBk at the US round of World Superbikes at Laguna Seca.

In a fascinating and wide-ranging conversation, Steve and Jensen cover the present state of the World Superbike series, and where it is going in the future. They start off in Phillip Island, and the expectations of the season at the opening round of the year, then go on to discuss how all that has changed over the course of the first half of the season.

Kawasaki Part Ways With Tom Sykes In WorldSBK

Kawasaki Part Ways With Tom Sykes In WorldSBK

18/07/2018, International, Motorcycling, Moto GP, Article # 27317935

Tom Sykes is to part ways with Kawasaki in the WorldSBK championship. The 2013 WorldSBK champion is to leave the team and manufacturer with which he had virtually all of his success in the series. 

Sykes' departure has been coming for some time. The Yorkshireman has been increasingly unhappy in the team ever since Jonathan Rea joined Kawasaki. Since Rea arrived, development of the bike has been moving away from Sykes and towards Rea, understandably, given just how dominant Rea has been on the ZX-10R, winning three titles in a row and on his way to a fourth.

Pedrosa's MotoGP career may have been blessed with the HRC golden ticket, but racing, regulations and broken bones have (mostly) conspired against him

Dani Pedrosa was once king of the Sachsenring. He won the 250 race in 2004 and 2005, then a hat-trick of MotoGP victories in 2010, 2011 and 2012, before Marc Márquez came along.

But that’s another story. Today we are talking about Pedrosa, MotoGP’s pint-sized perennial performer who, last Thursday, announced his retirement.

Pedrosa has broken a few records and many more bones during a long career during which he’s never quite lifted the MotoGP crown. But if you think he’s just been unlucky, you don’t know the half of it.
