Video: Casey Stoner Talks…
First Troy Bayliss, then Max Biaggi. Now it’s the turn of Casey Stoner to make a racing legends’ comeback this year, riding for the Musashi Honda squad at the infamous Suzuka 8hr sweat-fest on the 26th July. Love him or loathe him, you can’t deny Stoner’s unrivalled speed on... Read more
44T Jackanory: When ambition outweighs talent…
The British Superbike circus rolled into Scotland this weekend. I should have been racing in the Ducati TriOptions Cup but was shafted so far up the botty by a ‘sponsor’, that all you could see was this guy’s toenails dangling between my cheeks. Instead, I endured Knockhill’s action on... Read more
Brembo Z04 Review
Power is nothing without control, so says the old Pirelli slogan. Power is also immaterial if you can’t stop the bastard. Braking is an overlooked aspect when it comes to modifying and upgrading, with many choosing to spend big bucks on hunting horsepower, snazzy suspension or, even worse, anodised... Read more
Ducati TriOptions Cup: Rd3 Donington Park
The glitz and glamour of being a support race at World Superbikes? Yeah, something like that. A rumbling horde of 899s rolled into to Donington Park for a Bank Holiday weekend of Ducati TriOptions Cup action, although the action started long before circuit activity. With organisers keen to clamp... Read more
Ten Minutes With…John McGuinness
He’s not quite the proverbial housewives’ pin-up favourite but there isn’t a bad word spoken about John McGuinness. Morecambe’s finest lines-up with Honda for a millionth successive year and is fighting fit ahead of the season – in the run-up to last year’s TT, McGuinness badly damaged his wrist... Read more
Ducati TriOptions Cup: Rd2 Oulton Park
I’m almost certain a dog poo sandwich seasoned with semtex and barbed wire would have been tastier than the weekend I’ve endured. The second round of the Ducati TriOptions Cup rolled into Oulton Park alongside British Superbikes and, while it was generally a good meeting for my P&H Motorcycles/Carl... Read more
Project 2015: The Finale
Actually, although the project has ended, 2015 has only just begun. After an epic first round of British Superbikes at Donington to whet the racing appetite, the BSB circus rolls into Brands Hatch for round two next weekend, which also means the first instalment of the 2015 Ducati TriOptions...

Casey Stoner to race Suzuka 8hr
We don’t really do race news but this is a gargantuan newsflash: Casey Stoner will make his racing comeback for Honda at the Suzuki 8hr in July. Love him or loath him, having (arguably) the world’s fastest man on two wheels competing again is blockbuster stuff for motorcycling –... Read more
MV Agusta F4 RC
Holy fuckeroni. This new MV Agusta F4 RC is stunning: a pure racing homologation special with little regard for road etiquette, allowing MV Agusta to compete in World Superbikes with a rolling melange of exotic materials to showcase technology. Sadly, only 250 RCs will make production. And it’ll cost... Read more
Bruce Anstey and the Yamaha YZR500
Bruce Anstey doesn’t look like the fastest man ever to lap the Isle of Man TT. The Kiwi currently resembles more of a Seasick Steve wannabe than your stereotypical racer, beard wildly out of control, yet the laidback Anstey doesn’t mess about for a 45-year-old. 44Teeth caught up with... Read more
2015 Isle of Man TT Press Launch
In just 72 days, the first riders will be tearing down Glencrutchery Road for the start of the 2015 Isle of Man TT. 44Teeth were present over on Mona’s Isle for this year’s press launch of the world’s most iconic motorsport event and after chatting to all the stars,... Read more
Project 2015: Part Three
Whoa, whoa, whoa: the sudden realisation that there is less than a month until we start racing has suddenly dawned, suddenly. The first round of the 2015 Ducati TriOptions Cup joins the British Superbike circus at Brands Hatch on the 17th-19th April and I’m beginning to applaud the decision... Read more
