Roadracing World Young Guns 2022: Blake Davis

RoadRacing World - Sat, 2022-04-09 09:58

Roadracing World started this exclusive special feature recognizing the most promising young road racers as an answer to pessimists who claimed America had no new, up-and-coming young racers. This edition of the Roadracing World Young Gun Awards marks the 26th consecutive year of showcasing an abundance of new talent.

Roadracing World Young Guns have won:

FIM MotoGP and FIM Superbike races and World Championships;

MotoAmerica and AMA Pro races and Championships, including 11 AMA Pro Superbike Championships;

A KTM RC Cup World Final race;

The Daytona 200 (11 times);

WERA National Endurance Championships and WERA National Challenge Championships;

ASRA/Formula USA Grand National and CCS National Championships;

AMA Road Racing Grand Championships and Horizon Awards;

USGPRU National Championships;

Many regional and local titles.

The competition has continually become more intense as more – and younger—racers with higher levels of accomplishment are nominated, and the level of achievement required to make the grade keeps getting tougher.

We’ve spent the last several months accepting nominations and evaluating road racers between the ages of 10 and 18 (as of the start of the 2022 season) who have, at a minimum, won Expert-level road races and/or Championships or had outstanding results as an Amateur/Novice. Most of the riders included here have done far more than the minimum.

The young riders recognized here are the most promising young road racers in North America. All have earned the title of Roadracing World Young Gun.

We will feature one Young Gun per day, presenting them in alphabetical order.

MotoGP Analysis: Comparing 2022 MotoGP Racebikes, In The April Issue

Featured In the April 2022 issue of Roadracing World: 

 

MotoGP Editor Mat Oxley gets up-close and personal with the machines from each of the manufacturers competing in the MotoGP World Championship. From aerodynamics to ergonomics, from electronics to hydraulics (as in lowering devices), Oxley details the differences in each, laying out each factory’s route to what it hopes is World Domination!

MotoGP Analysis: Tech Wars Never End, By Mat Oxley

(Excerpt)

 APRILIA
MotoGP’s ALL-ROUNDER? This could be the year that the RS-GP fights for race wins.

EXPERT OPINION
Romano Albesiano, Aprilia Technical Director: “The bike is good at flowing circuits where the average speed is quite high, like Silverstone, because we have good aerodynamic characteristics, which help us…”

 

DUCATI
Will Eight Ducatis Mean Domination? Incredibly, Ducatis fill one-third of the 2022 grid!

EXPERT OPINION
Gigi Dall’Igna, Ducati Corse General Manager: “Having eight bikes on the grid is also important from a technical point of view, because we can collect more data. And it’s important for our new riders because we can start these new talents with our bike.”

Davide Barana, Ducati Corse Technical Director: “Our bike is a result of the work we’ve done since 2015, when we changed the bike completely, every single part. Now it’s no longer the red beast of the past that’s impossible to ride, unless you have a very special rider…”

 

HONDA
Will the newest RC213V be one bike for all? All New For 2022

EXPERT OPINION
Takeo Yokoyama, HRC Technical Director: “This year’s bike is a big redesign, because when you are winning it’s more difficult to make a radical change and when you are losing it’s easier to make a radical change…”

 

KTM
Time for a comeback: KTM had a poor 2021 and needs to bounce back in 2022

EXPERT OPINION
Sebastian Risse, KTM MotoGP Project Manager: “You have to reinvent yourself a bit, so the results dipped down, then you start getting some better results again, the bike goes up step by step and you move forward…”

 

SUZUKI
MotoGP’s finest handler. But the GSX-RR needs more than that to regain the crown.

EXPERT OPINION
Frankie Carchedi, Joan Mir’s Crew Chief: “In qualifying you need to really exploit the rear tire and finish it in two or three laps. Our problem is that when we do use the tire more aggressively, we do exactly the same lap time, so we’re not exploiting the extra grip. But the signs are positive…”

 

YAMAHA
Champs Under Pressure: Yamaha won the 2021 World Championship but has struggled during pre-season testing.

EXPERT OPINION
Diego Gubellini, Fabio Quartararo’s Crew Chief: “Now in MotoGP you have to work mostly on the electronics and the tires and especially the tires because they are the connection between the rider and the asphalt…”
