The blog is back!

Sorry for the delay everyone, but I had a surprise surgery to have my appendix removed. I’ll be putting up some interesting news from Europe this weekend, and I was really happy to see Bayliss tear it up last week. Stay tuned!

Sorry to people ordering Giudici leathers.  I’ll get the order in next week. For anyone else feel free to email me at wrichards@worldmarketsolutoins.com and I’ll get your oder in.

Giudici Sizing Worksheet

There has been a lot of interest in the one-piece racing leathers and people are asking me about sizing. See the sizing chart below and email me your numbers and I’ll send you back your size. These suits allow a fit closer to a custom suit compared to an off the rack suit. I guess some of you already know this and have heard of them before based on the emails I’m receiving 🙂 I plan to make an order within the next month and have suits here by April at the latest. Thanks! click here to download a pdf version giudici-sizing.pdf

1st Ducati 1098R Oboard Video

ducati-1098-launch-300.jpgThe guys over at visordown.com have the first fast onboard lap video of the 1098R in action.  The word “missile” was used over and over to describe the bike.  Also, reported as “the first production bike that feels like a race bike”. With 99 ft lbs of torque and eight traction control settings, it will take a brave wrist to keep the throttle pegged throughout a corner.  I guess that’s why Casey Stoner schooled all the old-school boys with his electronic trickery.  The Nintendo, Sega, Play Station generation will think nothing about this I’m sure.  See the first ride impression on their site as well.

Pedrosa Surgery – Out for an unconfirmed period time!

1.28.07 according to superbikeplanet

Dani Pedrosa.

Repsol Honda rider Dani Pedrosa, who crashed at the Sepang test yesterday, January 23, went into the USP Institut Universitari Dexeus de Barcelona hospital straight from an overnight flight from Malaysia. Upon arrival and after the relevant diagnostic tests it was confirmed, by the team of doctors directed by Dr. Xavier Mir, Head of the Hand Surgery and Microsurgery Unit, that Pedrosa has; “a fractured second metacarpal on his right hand with three diaphysary fragments, which are the bones found in the middle section of the metacarpian.”

The operation, which began at 14:00, consisted of, according to the statement made by Dr. Mir himself; “First reducing the fracture and then fixing the fracture with a seven holed titanium plate”.

Dr. Xavier Mir later said that the operation proceeded without any untoward happening and was completed according to plan, he also indicated that if there are no post-operation complications, “the recovery of the hand`s functions will start within the next 72 hours”.

Finally the surgeon emphasised the fact that; “Just when the rider will rejoin training and his usual sporting activities is unknown since in this type of case it is surprising how quickly top level professional sportsmen recover their abilities compared to the minimum period of the 6 weeks that are needed by most patients with the same kind of injury”.

Pedrosa should be allowed to leave the hospital tomorrow Thursday, 24th January at 12.30, and so that is when the press are invited to the press conference which the rider Dani Pedrosa himself will attend, he will be accompanied by Dr. Xavier Mir, Jefe de la Unidad de Cirugía y Microcirugía de la Mano de USP Institut Universitari Dexeus.
