Troy Bayliss talks about his 3rd place at Jerez
"…It’s very nice to be on the podium, and I love getting points, which is what it’s all about, and it’s great to be 3rd in the championship, but I want to be on a higher step before too long…".

The whole Bayliss family flew off to Seville and by the time we got into the motorhome it was around midnight and we were all pretty shattered, but it was very nice to wake up at the circuit. Thursday was the normal PR day, a few interviews and we always get off to a Ducati thing everywhere we go, which is ok by me. This week was a Ducati club dinner where we met a lot of people. We all knew that this was going to be a big weekend and I was feeling pretty positive, I thought we were on for a half decent result. Meanwhile, the kids had their rollerblades with them, and it didn’t take them long to hook up with a few other kids in the paddock. They were all cutting loose having a good time.

On Friday I managed to lay the bike down after around five laps or so. I put that down to a dirty track, as a few of the other guys went down around the same time. I just ran back to the pits, jumped on another bike, and it went alright by the end. I was pretty well up in every session and everything was going good. Then in final qualifying, I was lying around 10th as we’d been playing around with our race tyres, when we finally put a good tyre in and, bang, I hit the top with my best lap I’ve ever done around Jerez. I managed to get out on track again with another fast tyre, and I was fastest again in the first split, but I tucked the front and lost that lap. It was very nice to be on the front row even if Loris did bump me off pole right at the end.

Me and Loris had a bit of a coming together on the sighting lap of the race. As we went off I practised the start, then a couple of corners later I looked behind me and everyone was way behind. So I went down the straight in 4th gear, off the racing line, holding my brake on to warm them up, at around 160k’s to let the others catch me up. I think someone was following me, then as he moved to one side, Loris was unsighted and he clipped the back of me. He hit my right leg and now (Monday), from my backside to down to my knee it’s black with bruising. I think we were really lucky as it could have been a lot, lot worse for both of us.

From the start I guess I was still a bit flustered, thinking about what could have happened, and it took me a few laps to settle things down. At the end of the race my lap times were still pretty good, as good as the guy in front of me, but by then there was a gap that I just couldn’t make up. So I just brought it home for the podium. It’s very nice to be on the podium, and I love getting points, which is what it’s all about, and it’s great to be 3rd in the championship, but I want to be on a higher step before too long.
In the post race interview I said I was a bit bored in the race, and I hope nobody takes this the wrong way, but when you are just riding around all by yourself, it makes it a very long race, just watching your pit board counting down the laps. We’ve stayed on here for a test on Tuesday as the engineers have got a few things we want to try out, then when I get home I’m off to Holland, so I’ll be busy when I get back. Right now, it’s dinner time with the team, so I’m gone…
Take it easy, …Troy Bayliss

Los Angeles, California, USA (Monday , May 12th) – Now in its 12 year, our Performance Machine sponsored Los Angeles Calendar Motorcyle Show produced by FastDates.com publisher Gianatsis Design Associates has grown to become the biggest and best Custom and HiPerformance Streetbike Show in America. Held on the 3rd weekend of July at the Queen Mary Event Park on the edge of the Pacific Ocean in exciting downtown Long Beach, we weren't content to sit on our hands when we could make the best Bike Show in America even better. Joining our associate sponsors Corona Beer, Recycler.com / Cycle Buys, Trader Publications / Cycle Trader, Iron Works magazine for Harley enthusiasts and BikerNet.com will be The Los Angeles Times, one of America's leading and largrest newspapers assisting with pre event publicity and post event coverage. The Speed Chanel's premier American motorcycle series American Thunder will also be dedicating an entire program to the Calendar Bike Show as they do every year.

Exciting new activities added to this year's streetbike extravaganza include the RussBrown.com sponsored MotoMaster SuperMotard National, assured to be the biggest SuperMoto event ever held in America with participation by major factory race teams and world famous riders. Riders expect to appear include World and National roadrace and motocross stars like Jeremy McGrath, Kevin Schwantz, Scott Russell, Jeff Ward, Michell Bayle and others. The tight stadium style track at the Queen Mary is guaranteed to challenge the riders and assures spectators close and exciting handlebar clashing action. The MotoMaster National Championship Series is sponsored by Primedia's Sport Rider and Dirt Rider magazine who will also be covering the weekend's racing action.

A favorite attraction at past Calendar Bike Shows, our West Coast Horsepower Dyno Shootout by Jardine Headers returns this year sponsored and produced by America's premier performance exhaust system manufactuer for sportbikes and V-twin motorcycles. Bike builders and owners will be able to roll their 2-wheeled rockets up on the Jardine dyno in front of hundreds of spectators and prove just how much horsepower their bikes really produce.

Another new attraction this year will be the Jim's Machine Burnout Contest. Taking place on the front straight of the SuperMoto track each afternoon during race intermission, this is the chance for exhibitionists to show how much smoke they can make in destroying a rear tire to the cheers of admiring fans. The folks at Jim's Machine promise to award trophys for this eye watering / ear shattering mayhem that are as unique as the Burnout Contest participants themselves.

On Saturday we will be hosting the Iron Works magazine Olive Crest Charity Ride to the LA Calendar Motorccyle Show. Endorsed and funded in part buy the state, Olive Crest is the biggest orpanange and shelter sytem forabused children and families in Southern California.

Chicks who Rock, and Roll
Danica Patrick

One of the fastest women in racing ever, right up there with former World Rally champion Michelle Mouton and our own SBK World Supersport and now 250 MotoGP star Katja Poensgen, is 21-year old Danica Patrick featured this month in a sexy
4-page interview and pictorial in FHM magazine.

This petite 100 lb brunette bombshell is kicking ass in CART racing Indy cars this season, after signing a 3 year contract with Team Rahal last season to race in 400 hp Toyota Atlantic cars. Butformer 3-time National Go Cart Champ Danica was so quick, team owner Bobby Rahal has moved her up to the premier American single seater series where last month at the Mexico City round of the series she turned the quickest race times and moving up to 3rd place to challenge the leaders before the race ended.

What's just as exciting as her driving skills and the ability to wrestle an 800hp race car that leaves most men twice her size weak in the knees, is the fact this sexy brunette has no problem stripping down to sexy bikinis for her fans to admire her even more.

It was just Ducati's 3rd MotoGP but Loris Capirossi (center) and Troy Bayliss (left) put their Desmosedici's 1-2 on the pole. It had to be an embarassment for veteran the GP teams of Yamaha, Suzuki, Kawasaki and Proton.

MotoGP World Championship, Spanish Grand Prix Round 3

Ducati's brilliant Capirossi and Bayliss dominate Qualifying taking 1-2 on the Pole!
But Doctor Rossi Turns Up the Heat
on his rivals with a win in Spain

Jerez, Spain, Sunday May 11th: A partisan crowd of 130,000 had to be disappointed with the early departures of their Spanish heroes Sete Gibernau (Telefonica Movistar Honda RC211V) and Carlos Checa (Yamaha) in the first half of the race. But no one could begrudge Valentino Rossi (Repsol Honda RC211V) his second win of the season in the searing conditions that saw the track temperature at 41 degrees. Rossi won in style with a stand-up wheelie across the line while second-placed Max Biaggi (Camel Pramac Pons RC211V) and Troy Bayliss (Ducati) celebrated their second and third places respectively.

Final Qualifying Saturday May 10th
Ducati Marlboro Team riders Loris Capirossi and Troy Bayliss continue to astound the world with the performance of the Desmosedici, the pair taking first and second in this afternoon’s sun-baked final qualifier at Jerez. The pair dominated the final five minutes of the session, Bayliss moving into pole position first, Capirossi just 0.131 seconds behind, but the Italian went even better on his final run, lapping 0.01 seconds faster than his team-mate to score Ducati’s first-ever pole position in GP racing’s premier class. Capirossi's final lap time of 1:.41.983 shatterd by nearly a second Honda World Champion Valentino Rossi's 2002 season lap record at Jerez of 1:42.920

This phenomenal performance continues the Ducati team’s remarkable run of results during the earliest stages of its MotoGP adventure – the Desmosedici scored its first podium at the season-opening Japanese GP, its first front-row start in South Africa and also led both races. And today was the first ime since 1975 with Franco Inarella on an MV Agusta that an Italian Bike and Rider have been on the pole of a open class GP.

“It’s difficult to find the proper words for this,” said Ducati Corse CEO Claudio Domenicali. “This is our first race in Europe, and getting first and second on the grid is a result for the whole team, for everyone at Ducati. Everyone from the riders to the mechanics to the engineers at the factory has done something very special today. For sure the race is a different story, I think we still need more practice and more knowledge with this bike, we’re still on the learning curve.”

Bayliss (12) leads teamate Capirossi on the opening lap followed by Biaggi and Giberneau.

Doctor Valentino Proves Invincible in the Race
The 27-lap MotoGP race began with a mad rush into the uphill right-hand turn one and it was Troy Bayliss (Ducati) who rocketed into the lead as the pack bumped and bored its way around the first circuit of the 4.423km track. His team-mate Loris Capirossi collided with him on the back straight and came off better in the altercation. He grabbed the lead.

But Rossi was already sizing up his Italian rival Capirossi having hoisted himself from seventh to second by the end of the first lap. Rossi’s ability to carve his way through the chaos of the opening lap gave him the impetus he needed to stalk Capirossi and then dive inside him at the final left-hand hairpin on lap four. And then he was gone.

Lap after lap he piled on the agony for his pursuers putting anything between two and four tenths of a second into the gap between his number 46 machine and the RC211V of his erstwhile antagonist Max Biaggi. Biaggi could easily maintain the second place he grabbed on lap six but he could make no impression on the rampaging Rossi.

The Doctor performed open heart surgery on his rivals once things sorted out after the start.

With Biaggi out of Bayliss’ range in second and Bayliss similarly clear of the rest of the field, the action was concentrated on fourth place and beyond. It eventually went to Tohru Ukawa (Camel Pramac Pons RC211)
from Alex Barros (Yamaha) but not without a huge fight from the inspired rookie Makoto Tamada (Pramac Honda RC211V) along the way. Rossi, who set a newrace lap record of 1m 42.788s on lap five on his way to GP win number 52, now has a tally of five wins at this happy Spanish hunting ground.

“I’m happy,” he said. “The biggest problem everyone had was traction and we knew we had to work on making the bike controllable even with large amounts of wheelspin. I had a bad start but I didn’t want anyone to get away and so I had to make a lot of places up before I got behind Capirossi. I had a bit more speed than him and that was it.”

Max Biaggi (Camel Pramac Pons RC211V) was more relieved than happy at securing a solid points haul when he was in danger of coming away with little or nothing in the early qualifying stages.

“I’m happy with this after the qualifying troubles,” he said. “On Friday I was down in 12th, then I was on the front row on Saturday and now today a podium. Everyone dreams of winning and riding with the number one plate but in these conditions you take what you can get. I had a lot of fun overtaking other riders in the early laps but it was quite lonely towards the end.”

Things got better as the race wore on for Tohru Ukawa (Camel Pramac Pons RC211) who wasted a front row grid slot with a sluggish start and then couldn’t push through the field until after mid-race distance.
“The bike was not giving me enough confidence to push at the start,” said the Japanese star. “Then as the race went on things actually got better and I could make up places, but it was too late to make decent progress. Maybe there’s a small problem with me too, I seem to take too long to get into a
rhythm at the moment.”

For Sete Gibernau (Telefonica Movistar Honda RC211V) it was all a case of what might have been. “It was a real shame,” said the Spaniard. “When I was chasing Valentino the front end let go. I didn’t want to settle for second in front of this great crowd but I still have to adapt to this bike. We’re staying to test tomorrow and hopefully I’ll arrive at Le Mans with another chance of winning.”

Makoto Tamada (Pramac Honda RC211V) made his rookie tag look faintly ridiculous as he stormed to sixth in only his third MotoGP race and his first visit to Jerez. “I’m very satisfied,” he said. “A day like this really pumps up the motivation. This is what we need to move forward and I’m really looking to the Le Mans race although we need to remember not to get carried away with this result.”

Nicky Hayden (Respsol Honda RC211V) went out on lap nine. “My start wasn’t great,” he said. “Then I caught a good group and got into a rhythm before the engine felt a little slower. Then I fell off and I’m disappointed because I knew I was going to finish higher. I’m aching a bit now as it was a pretty
fast fall.”

Rossi leads the points standings after three races with 70, Biaggi is second on 56 points with Bayliss on 40 and Gibernau with 38.

Our own Fast Dates Calendar Girl Nicki Lane, Miss Reading wins Miss Great Britain 2003
5/16 -The final of Miss Great Britain 2003 took place last night at Tantra in London before a sell out crowd. The title Miss Great Britain 2003 was won by Reading beauty Nicki Lane.
Miss Great Britain Reading, Nicki simply dazzled on stage and her stunning good looks and sparkling personality made her the Judges favorite.
More to follow.

Miss SBK Fast Dates World Superbike girl Nicki Lane attempts to retake her
Miss Great Britain title!

Nicki writes from the British Isles- "Hello Guys! How`s things in the colonies? All's fine here in London where I'm getting ready for the 2003 Miss Great Britain Pageant on May 16th. It spans a weekend. Taking place in a very swanky private members club called the Elyseum.

All us girls will be staying at the Royal Horseguards Hotel. Hope I'm not sharing with another model as I will never get in the bathroom. Friday consists of press calls, photo sets, hair and makeup practice and rehersels. Saturday much the same, but the real pageant is on the night with filming for TV. Unfortunately in this country we don`t do talent sections ( it's a shame as I am sure I`d have the male judges votes with a couple of naked backflips!!!)

Speaking of being naked, I look forward to coming back to California in July for World Superbike and The LA Calendar Motorcycle Show, so I can take up my favourite hobby of naked sunbathing once again to avoid unsightly tan lines ha ha!! I'll see you all soon! Cheers!" -Nicki Lane, Miss Great Britain 2001.

Nicki is featured on the cover of the upcoming 2004 Fast Dates Calendar with World Superbike Champion Colin Edwards' works Honda RC51 photographed at last year's Laguna Seca SBK round.

2003 AMA Chevy Trucks US Superbike Championship
Rounds 6 & 7 – Road Atlanta, Braselton, Georgia, USA
May 17-18, Event preview


The 2003 AMA Chevy Trucks US Superbike Championship heads to Georgia this weekend for the third of this season’s double-header Superbike rounds at the Road Atlanta circuit in Braselton, with Australian Mat Mladin eyeing another pair of race wins.

Mladin, a three-times American AMA Superbike champion, has made a sensational start to his 2003 season, winning four of the five Superbike rounds and leads the championship by 24-points from Yoshimura Suzuki teammate Aaron Yates as they head into the weekend’s sixth and seventh rounds of the series.

Mladin took out the double race win at Road Atlanta in 2000 and made it three wins at the Georgian circuit with another race win in 2001. Earlier this year, Mladin, along with a number of other AMA competitors, tested at Road Atlanta and came away with the fastest time recorded at the three-day test showing his liking for the 4.087km (2.54miles), 12-turn layout.

“We’re looking forward to the race that’s for sure and hopeful we can continue on with winning some races,” said Mladin. “I like the race track. It’s got a lot of different aspects about it that makes it interesting. It’s a good event where the fans get right into it, so it’s always nice to do well there.”

“As for the weekend, we have to go there and play smart, win a couple of races and extend the points gap. With thirteen races remaining, there is a huge amount of the season left to go. At the moment we have a full race worth of points break over fourth place in the championship and it would be nice to leave Atlanta with that same margin over second place.”

The Atlanta round will also mark the first of a hectic four-round schedule that will see Mladin and his fellow competitors criss-cross America before returning to California in July.

“After this round, we’ll be on the road for a couple of months living out of the motorhome, for the upcoming rounds at Pikes Peak (Colorado), Road America (Wisconsin) and Brainerd (Minnesota), before heading back to California for the combined World Superbike / AMA round at Laguna Seca on July 13. It’ll be good fun, it allows us to get out and see a bit of the country as well as giving us some different training routines as we prepare for each of those particular rounds. It’s a time of the year that I actually look forward to.”

Qualifying for this weekend’s double header round begins on Friday, with final qualifying scheduled for Saturday morning followed by the opening 28-lap Superbike national on Saturday afternoon. The second of the 28-lap Big Kahuna Superbike races takes place on Sunday afternoon.

The MotoGP TV race coverage from Jerez this week featured a forward looking live lipstick camera mounted on the top tailpiece of Valentio Rossi's winning Repsol factory Honda. The race view was definetly interesting as we watched Valentino diving the bike into corners and passing other riders like we were riding with him on the passenger's seat.. But the best shot came when race leader Rossi cane out of the last corner on the last lap, stood up on his feet on the saddle of the bike and poped a near verticle wheelie and proceeded to wheelie the RC211 down the front straight and across the finish line. This is the picture from that camera of Rossi standing on the rear tailpiece fairing, looking up between his legs at his chest and head as he wheelies the bike Cool.
