Great stuff.

This guy should still be in WSB. A great 1st year with 3 wins, good reasons for a poorer 2nd. He should have been given another chance.

Hopefully he'll move on for 2011, but where?

Congrats to Kiyo he did what he had to do and raced the guys in front of him.

Damned shame for Tommy Hill tho, spoiled the end for the spectators IMHO.

Do not like the final race 'shoot out' BS.

Congrats, but BSB is his level - doesn't make as many errors as he used to, but too inconsistent for WSB.

The rumour is he had a chance of the Parkalgar ride - that would have been interesting!

BSB is his level ?

This guy still has the talent to do well in WSBK. He knows all the curcuits now, is more confident all round (English has improved, looks like a man and not a boy now). I think he deserves another shot at Worlds, but there aren't any decent rides left unless Biaggi retires ????

He's too good for SuperSport - that's for up and comers like Gino Rea, Crutchlow, Sam Lowes, Lascorz etc... Kiyo is an established Superbike rider. If WSS is all that is available at world level then I'd stay with HMPlant in BSB thanks...

Blimey Al - that's impressive.

I was against the shoot out idea at the start and with the old points system we would still have had the same last round for championship situation. Camier was dominant last year and no system would have changed it.

Kiyo rode great to win all 3 and it was a rider error by Tommy that cost him. That's racing.

Compared to the boring boring Motogp races this year, BSB is light years ahead. Think the one bike rule is a bit naff though - perhaps this need relaxing.
