re: "Shane should try CRT or WSB."

shakey should stay where he's at. news flash, he's already been in both WSB and MotoGP. anybody remember all the "broken ankles" from everybody and their mum "jumping on the bandwagon" too quickly when GP500 changed over a decade ago...?

To have Shakey and Ellison on CRT bikes in my opinion is not smart at all.. the current structure of CRT machinary wont contest for a Championship, therefore it would make sense to combine efforts with Pedercini Team in WSBK to make a serious challenge to win or contest for a world championship.AS a combined effort will keep cost down and bring two great minds together!!! just saying..

That is a nice idea @joel, but Paul Bird is a man with very strong opinions and a very big personality which could make a partnership with Pedercini difficult.

Unfortunately Paul Bird has said that his plans for the second CRT involving developing a new bike - so whoever gets on that second bike will face a long hard slog.

Shakey is a brilliant BSB rider but WSBK and MotoGP have never been the same natural fit for him. The British tracks have more in common with road racing where a tempered bravery is called for. The world series tracks with more run off are safer and allow for and require a "nerve end" riding style, on the edge all the time. I think Shakey also gets lifted and inspired by the british fans who appreciate him. Stay in BSB Shakey and get home to the kids sunday night!
