    slate.com: Why BMW drivers are jerks to cyclists

    TED Talks Two young scientists break down plastics with bacteria
    Once it's created, plastic (almost) never dies. While in 12th grade Miranda Wang and Jeanny Yao went in search of a new bacteria to biodegrade plastic -- specifically by breaking down phthalates, a harmful plasticizer. They found*

    WorldSBK Moscow 2013
    The break between R1 and R2 at Imola marked the halfway point in the 2013 WorldSBK season. The Manufacturer order did not change with Aprilia P1, Kawasaki P2(after R1), BMW P3, Honda P4, Suzuki P5 and Ducati P6. The overall standings may not have changed but the points margins did. Moscow moved up several slots on the SBK calendar. How teams fair here will have much to do with how the season finishes.

    Aprilia 289 points

    Rather than by the dominance of Emperor Biaggi, Aprilias hold on the Manufacturer lead has been the result of hard riding by several riders. Going to Moscow my question was would democracy work for Aprilia? Guintoli, currently number 2 in the riders hunt, may have made that question mute by crashing his bicycle. One would assume this would result in the team focussing on Laverty, number 3 in the rider standings, to take the team home and capture the Manufacturer Championship.

    Whomever assumes the lead rider slot, Aprilia must settle on one if they are going to take the manufacturers title. They have entertained by letting the Aprilia *riders duel amongst themselves. They have done this near the top and thus holding other riders and teams down in the process. All but the rider and team that is becoming the arch nemesis of the field. They must find a way to deal with that threat quickly.

    Kawasaki 259 points

    In the first seven rounds Sykes has taken 6 poles and turned them into 10 podium finishes with 5 wins in that lot. In these cases he has been able to win the race to turn 3 on the first lap and in turn has left others fighting for position while he manages his bike to the flag. Sykes and his Z-10 are improving race after race. *In the past riders could challenge him and have him run his tyres off. Improvements to the Z10 have made this harder to do but he has not been challenged seriously of late to verify that the problem has been solved.

    BMW 237 points

    Qualifying

    One simple word that sums up BMWs problems. Yes we have been treated to explanations about chassis and electronic problems; yet five years into WSBK BMW still has not figured out how to qualify. Melandri averaged P6.0 and Davies P9.4 for qualifying in the first half of the season yet finished P3.8 and P5.1. In too many races this gap between qualifying rust and race finish has been filled by Aprilia riders and kept Melandri and Davies from running down Sykes. When they are able to get ahead of that lot they have scored well. Third is not the position BMW was expecting this season. Sort out qualifying and that will change.

    Honda 138 points

    Haslam is back and Rea has been riding strongly in the last races. Haslam being gone did not help but the real problem for Honda is the bike. The Honda is dueling with an Epee while Aprilia, BMW and Suzuki are armed with rapiers and cutlases. Rea has been able to chase Sykes but has not had the power or handling to deal a real blow to him in a duel. *Honda will be a factor in the balance of the season but not in the way they hoped for.

    Suzuki 122 points

    Suzuki lost ground to Honda between the R1 and R2 at Imola because Rea was able to pull ahead of the the knot behind Sykes. I expect the other teams to sort that out and throw Honda back into Suzukis lap. In turn I expect them to dispatch Honda and take P4 in the final standings.

    This is a key season for the FIXI Crescent Team behind the paddock wall They continue to sort themselves out very nicely. Suzuki will focus on I four development. The commitment to the configuration for MotoGP will have trickle down benefits that may start showing in the end of this season.

    Ducati 96 points

    A star crossed season for DucAudi. Checa has qualified P8.1 in the rounds he participated in but finishes behind in P9.4. Teammate Badovini qualifies P12.4 and finishes P10.1. Midfield but far behind where one would expect for the manufacturer that has dominated much of the history of WSBK.

    Sykes takes the Friday provisional pole with a 1:35.567 (2012 pole - Checa with a 1:35.222). Melandri is in P3 with Aprilia support rider Guigliano splitting the two.

    Checa turned in a solid performance for the day finishing in P4. Did DucAudi find enough in the Imola tests to move them back up the charts? The Moscow track is narrow and leans to the technical side which traditionally favors Ducati.

    Camier was able to push his Suzuki P6 in front of Rea and his Honda P7. If he can keep the black side down he should do well this weekend; however that has been a challenge for him this year.

    Guintoli is struggling back in P14 with his shoulder injury. This looks like a weekend for him to salvage whatever points he may for his Rider Championship hopes.

    BMW

    Davies turned in a P7 in FP1 only to fall to P10 in Q1. I continue to wonder if he is being sacrificed for race set up experiments. He needs to qualify better in Superpole in order to help the team keep others from scoring points or be in position to take over if Melandri falters.

    Melandri is a provisional P3, down from P1 in the practice session. This is very encouraging; however his top speeds raise a question mark. He turned green for many of his timed laps, meaning he was the fastest rider on in the speed trap. He turned 307.8 kph compared to Sykes 303.0 for their respective best laps. With both on row one top speed would help win the race to turn 3. The concern comes in when the current handling history is taken into account. Melandri has complained about handling through the corners. He has not been able to carry speed through the corners thus has relied on the S1000RR top speed capabilities to make up for what he lacks in cornering speed.

    I will be back tonight with team press releases. The BMW comments may take some interpriting.

    F1 Live timing remains my favorite data screen in large part because it gives you gap to the leader and the gap to the next driver. This makes tracking duels develop much easier. The SBK Live Timing data screen is a very close second.

    With a larger screen the SBK parade of dots around the track might be of more use ( you can view it and the data screen); however with a netbook it is totally worthless. The live race notes on the F1 site are excellent.

    Sunday, 21 July | Race Update - Moscow 2013 WorldSBK

    From: WorldSBK.com

    Marco Melandri (BMW Motorrad Goldbet) is back on the top step of the podium after an epic race 1 that was hard to imagine before the lights went off. Melandri's third win in the season means a big step up in the points for the Italian, who is now 32 points away from new Championship leader Sylvain Guintoli (Aprilia Racing Team).

    Constantly changing weather conditions and several DNFs played a huge factor in today's first race, with 2013 flag-to-flag rules that came into place. The Italian, along with several other riders in the top positions, pulled in for a tyre change at the end of lap 20 as the rain got heavier, making almost impossible to ride on slick compounds. Thanks to a formidable pit-stop performed by his crew, Melandri closed the gap on the leader and team mate Chaz Davies, eventually getting on first position and pulling away to cross the line a lonely winner. Davies, on the other hand, led the race for the most part, showing great skills on both dry and mixed conditions.

    Ayrton Badovini (Team Ducati Alstare) brought the 1199 Panigale R to a long-awaited first podium finish, thanks to an impressive performance in the last part of the race. The former STK1000 Champion found himself at ease on soaked wet conditions, to edge out from the top-3 Jonathan Rea (Pata Honda World Superbike) while entering the penultimate lap.

    Sylvain Guintoli (Aprilia Racing Team) put in another heroic performance today by finishing sixth behind Michel Fabrizio (Red Devils Aprilia), despite the dislocated right collarbone and a big moment in the first half of the race.

    Tom Sykes' (Kawasaki Racing Team) second technical problem of the weekend resulted in a no-score for the Brit, as his bike stopped and got on fire during the fourth lap. A big number of crashes took place and involved Carlos Checa (Team Ducati Alstare), Jules Cluzel (FIXI Crescent Suzuki), Davide Giugliano (Althea Racing Aprilia), Eugene Laverty (Aprilia Racing Team), Leon Haslam (Pata Honda World Superbike), Lorenzo Savadori (Team Pedercini Kawasaki) and Vittorio Iannuzzo (Grillini Dentalmatic BMW)
