It's not often a tyre rolls up and genuinely raises eyebrows. But Michelin’s Pilot Road 3, launched at the start of 2011, did just that. It immediately earned a reputation for great wet grip, excellent ride quality and masking the deficiencies of tired or poor quality suspension. It has become, deservedly, one of the UK’s best-selling tyres.
This is because the PR3 introduced razor-thin cuts in the tread, called sipes. Sipes have been around for years on car tyres, helping slice through water and letting the rubber contact the road beneath. But technical issues when using them on round-profile bike tyres lead to overheating and durability problems. In many ways it’s the same problems racers have using wet race tyres on a dry track – the best tread pattern and compound for shifting water will quickly overheat and wear out in the dry.

Well, if a picture can be worth a thousand words then how about 126 ft lbs of torque. Our friends at Motus Motorcycles have published a dyno run from the MST and MST-R bikes showing the ground pounding torque numbers laid down by their V4 powered bikes. Pretty impressive to say the least. Click the image below for the full sized version.

Americans Nicky Hayden, Colin Edwards and Josh Herrin were joined by European MotoGP™ trio Marc Marquez, Valentino Rossi and Bradley Smith to preview the Red Bull Grand Prix of the Americas on Thursday, with Edwards taking the opportunity to announce his retirement at the end of 2014.
Edwards has been riding professionally for 22 years and has been in MotoGP™ since 2003, notching up 12 podiums along the way, having come into the World Championship as World Superbike champion. Announcing his decision in the Circuit of the Americas media center the Texan native joked, “I’m still racing this year though!”
Marc Marquez came storming out of the gate this weekend to end up winning this past weekend's race with his teammate Dani Pedrosa following him in for second place. Andrea Dovizioso followed shortly thereafter for a third place finish on his Ducati. Lorenzo continued to with his streak of poor luck by jumping the start and the resulting slow penalty lap left him in tenth place overall.

Aprilia Racing Team's Marco Melandri and Sylvain Guintoli had a positive end of the second round by finishing third and fourth respectively in Race 2. Italain rider Melandri was in contention for the win in the last laps, after a good recovery from the third row on the grid and an intense battle in the early stages. Melandri tried a last lap manoeuvre on Sykes for the win, eventually running wide and finishing third behind other KRT rider Loris Baz.
