binladin has had 1 finish in 8 races 7 dnf's and the race he finished he was 1 lap behind although he didnt start 2 races.

i think that ride should of gone somewhere else to be honest and i'd say that he is the only mediocre rider on the grid. i'd love a shot but i'd never get it lol

Only one podium finish in what must 10 years in BSB riding for top teams including Virgin Yamaha, Hydrex Honda, Stobbart Honda and MSS Kawasaki isn't much of a record is it? Of course he brings money to teams as no-one would employ him based on his track record!

My ears haven't seen a thing on Crash Net in all the years I've been here.

On a more serious note, if Mason wasn't a competent rider he'd have been rubbish on the Quay Honda too.

He wasn't.

I wouldn't even chuck rocks at Bin Liner ...
He's having to over-ride that Paginale to keep in touch simply because its not competitive.
That Smart's results are better is a testimony to his skill (mainly in the damp) too, not that bike's quality.

Gary is what he is, a top ten rider who on his day might get a podium. Does this mean he shouldn't have a ride in BSB? Not everyone in a 30+ field can be a winner. Doesn't mean they can't provide us fans great entertainment. BSB needs riders like Gary.

As already stated not all 30 riders on the grid will win the race, and that's what makes a race. Take away all those that can't win unless something happens to the front runners and what have you got ? a grid with only 7 bikes on !! Is that what you want to see, if your answer is yes then your watching the wrong sport. My only worry, and it always has been, is that I just hope MSVR don't ruin our fantastic domestic championship.
Time will tell.

Simple statistical fact. Weather levels the playing field with machinery but more importantly short comings in setup and engineering preparation and budget. Take a look at riders that finish better in poor conditions. Kind of cuts through all the bull of crash collective debate. Just for the record. 1. Rob mac '03 bike great 2. Rob mac 04 bike pants 3. Birdy DIY first gen blade.... Ask McWilliams ... 4, hydrex bike... Lol... 1 year old before the season started, like yes it was a 04 bike subjected to the famous second choice Dunlop tyre cartel.. Plus no wages...as per contract.. Bye bye house.. So... Where's the big money? Just for starts. Life in this sport at this level is business subjected to media propaganda that needs to love you and be stage managed (alex lowes) with lady lucky firmly on your side. Right place at the right time is everything. But what do I know? I just look at the real facts and make a educated point on the sport I have observed for 15 years rather than spue ou
