Yes - he'll bounce back, but over the last few seasons he seems to have been either getting worse at setup or more sensitive and less able to ride through problems.

Considering the amount of data that the team have and the experience level of Kiyo and his crew I find his floundering / inconsistency baffling.

Being a Kiyo fan can be hella frustrating. I cant understand how a rider can be so utterly ordinary one moment and a world beater the next time round! Would anyone be really surprised if he pulled off a double win at Thruxton?

No kidding Doc. Kiyo is an enigma wrapped up in a mystery. He's a bit like the British weather. If you don't like his riding now, wait for the next race. Normally they say that consistency wins championships, but not (it would seem) in Kiyo's case.

I still don't understand why Kiyo didn't pit for tyres in the first race. He was going nowhere on wets but a change of tyres would have enabled him to put in a fast lap to get him up the grid for the second race. Or did I miss something?

Kiyo not here this weekend!!!

I honestly think he has a body double who stands in for him when he isn't quite feeling it. He'll be casual in the first half of season then go hell for leather in the second half of the season
