Punching above his weight for sure, but to be honest the competition is crap this year.
Great to see Rutter at the sharp end, I hope Easton strings some results together because he is the one who should win the championship.
i'd be surprised if Hill is at the top of the pile after a few more rounds, the pressure will get to him. I sure hope someone more deserved wins the title!

are you having a laugh. This year is much more cometitive than last year. There is no one dominant rider and we have already had multiple race winners. Hill is certainly not punching above his weight, with Worx & Relentless showing that the GSXR is a real contender. Then we have the ducatis back on form, the hondas with blistering pace, the kwaks giving a good show. what more do you want Jim? close racing and excitement not enough? go watch F1!!

Well I too think Hill is out of his depth!
Done nowt in past apart from R6 cup :) Mind you I think my missus could win on that Works Suzuki.
So before all you Tommy Hill lovers start off, wait till a few more races then we shall see him in the true position. not in the top 4

Hi there, as Tommy,s mechanic i can honestly say i have never heard such a load of old rubbish by ott and his mate,have you been watching the same races as the rest of us ? Tommy has been nothing but brilliant on our bike,yes he has made a couple of mistakes but that,s racing as they say. I think you will only see Tommy grow from strength to strength as he has done all year, it has been a fantastic championship up to now with as many as any one of the top 6 riders could win a race. It won,t be long before we see Stuart Easton on the top spot.Yukio will soon be back to top form and pushing his team mate up the front. hope you all enjoy the resr of the season. :)

I find it difficult to understand why Tommy attracts so much criticism. He made a mistake at Cadwell in the first race and held his hands up to it, yet bounced back to take second in the next one. He's ridden well this year and has a healthy lead in the c/ship. Lets not forget the horrific injuries he endured not that long ago.

Criticism................ I guess because he comes over as arrogant and not a fans favorite? Also I suppose because the better riders like Rutter, Walker, Harris to name just a few were overlooked for that coveted ride. I don't know? just a thought.

Whilst Rutter is riding as well as he ever has, Walker and Harris were surely never seriously in the frame for this ride.
Arrogant or not and he certainly wasn't the twice i have met him, he's still leading the c/ship.

Fair enough OTT

You've won the Troll of the day award so you can fkoff now and leave the forum to people with an interest in racing, not in posturing and coming the cnut.

Phil you're spot on with those observations but you can't reason with people who are too stupid to do more than take the pyss.
