I don't know what's underlying this, other than his results being less then everyone hoped.
But I do feel hell of a sorry for Gowler that its come to this.

Sadly I think the pressure is high in BSB due to lack of money and eventually it effects everyone.

Hope that all parties here are fair and they reach an amicable and happy conclusion.

Yeah I guess it's a dangerous sport you need to be 100% focused your risking your life as well as others, there def is pressure even though half these lads pay for the pleasure

Do hope he gets his head right he's a bloody quick rider with very good potential, hopefully he'll be back firing at donny

I don't think WFR have done a good enough job for all 3 riders this year having had some good results last year against full spec bikes you would off thought now being on a level playing field they should be up at the thick end and all 3 riders are finishing in simaler positions so that tells me that's the level of the bike not the riders.it will not help that WFR will not be racing in bsb next year they could be trying to save some money! But good luck to mr Gowland I hope you get sorted soon could world super sport be the place for him next year? Because lets face it he did beat Sam Lowes the odd time in 2010 running himself on a shoe string

why blame wfr when its described as personal issues?
and as for the bikes being not up to the same spec as the established teams, Alex has just taken pole at Cadwell, why not praise wfr for giving 3 young (inexperienced) riders a chance, rather than go for a estabished name which surely would short cut the learning the team would go through when they have moved up to the premier class?
independant people who choose to spend a huge sum's of their money in our sport should surely be supported and praised, without them what would we be watching?
It seems Graham has some problems to screw his head to the point he decides he can't ride, one of the essential requirements to be a winner in any sport is self belief, to believe you can beat anyone and nothing will stop you, if racing a superbike in a championship only second to wsb, and a chance to show just how good you are isn't enough motivation to overcome any difficulties, then.......well it must be a very difficult problem and its really

must be a big problem for him and thats really upsetting.
The motorcycle family should support Graham and the team,it cant be easy for them either, I'm sure most of them regard Graham as a close mate.
