No, lets be fair the bikes good but so is the rider, there is a lack of competition in the series. The bikes are there just a few good riders missing I said before it wont surprise me to seem him unbeaten to the end of the season.

If it's all the bike why is he so much faster than his teammate? Why isn't Chris Walker doing better? Why isn't Tom Sykes doing better? The bike is good but it's only Camier and Spies who are making the most of it.

Big Bang Engine was develop for balance not to be the fastest in the circuit. some engine are very fast in straights but it compromises its speed in acceleration in exiting the curves. but with the Big Bang engine although you are not fast in straights but you have the speed or pace in straights, and well balance in acceleration in exiting the corners, hard breaking, agility, and a big plus in Big Bang Engine, it handles the tire efficiently so it wont used up fast compare to other engine configuration. now if you question why did only camier and spies was able to excel and the other not. I might conclude it has to do with the geometry of the bike and its traction control, that suits them.

I dont think Ellison is having much luck but there have always been days and tracks where he is up there and others where it just hasnt happened im sure Colin Wright would tell you why. To be fair to Sykes he is no slouch but Spies would appear to be a bit special and as for Walker well hes on the back slope getting what he can who can blame him.

Well done Leon, the triple was fantastic. It will be a while before anyone can match that.

Unfortunatly there doesn't seem to be a great deal of competition within BSB but even if there was Leon would still be at the top fighting. Hopefully he will have a choice of where to go and what bike to ride next year.

Big Bang engine is promising Engine in Racing, if not I dont think Rossi, Lorenzo, Edwards be good if their bike is as good as in Honda or ducati. If you can see in MOTOGP in terms of contructors Yamaha is at the Top. So their bike is really Good. and Now in British Superbike, and very competitive as well in world Superbike. Give sykes a credit look at the other manufacturers racer they are already 2 or more season with their bike and sykes is only several months with it. dont compare sykes to spies. he has a seasoned crew chief chief that knows Spies well. So in terms of setting the bike up Spies has an advantage compare to Sykes.

I like Camier. He is a decent solid rider, but no way is he as good as his new records are suggesting. I wouldn't see he's in the top 10 of best BSB riders ever.

It's a combination of various factors.

1. The R1 is the class of the field.
2. There isn't a huge amount of competition. All last years front runners went off to do WSS/WSB
3. Guintlolli got taken out early in the season. Who knows how close the fight would have been, but it's pretty certain, based on his early pace he would have taken a number of wins this year, reducing Camiers total.

If Camier is THAT good why did he get spanked left and right by Byrne last year?
