Go Shakey!!

Easily a title contender this year, one of the faster riders in BSB history. Never really gets going on the world stage but will be tough to beat this year.

How could anyone possibly hit the disagee button on the last comment?? Only the most blinkered of people could ever believe he isn't a contender.. Winner?? Not sure.. But contender?? Absolutely.. Why hit a button?? Why not debate the point it's what forums are for??

@BikeRaceGuru I shouldn't worry too much about ridiculous disagrees and provokative views on, I think it is a site that attracts a lot of trolls and people just out to provoke people - they are best ignored. The riders that seem to bring out the children are Rossi, Shakey and JT.

Either way, to get back on topic, Shakey, definite contender and full on rider. He's one of the few riders who gives it everything he's got, regardless of bike. See you at Brands!

Ive known this guy from school, and he was riding like a looney then... he has matured a fair bit and 2 BSB titles is proof of his pedigree... he didnt start racing until late, and he has achieved more than others who started way younger... so give him some credit!!
