Anyone else think Billy McConnell lost the plot a bit this weekend? In the interviews after races he seemed like he'd OD'd on RedBull or something

Have to feel for Jack Kennedy, how often do the modern racebikes break down?
For a new team to come so close to the title in their first season and have it snatched from them by a mechanical is tough.
Glen Richards knows the gods smiled on him, but fair play to the guy, he is both a decent skin and a class rider, and certainly raced for the title.
Would be nice to see Triumph take World Supersport seriously soon.

with team mates like Billy.........so finishing 3rd in the Championship is more important than the TEAM winning is it?.
It was one of the most selfish stupid things I have ever seen in a race, if Kennedy's bike had not broken Billy would have lost the Championship for the TEAM (who he is riding for next year).
Fantastic decision to stuff his team mate 3 corners from home.......bloody idiot.

Well done Glen, im a patriotic sorta fella and happy to see you bring the Triumph home again for the 2nd year,
Yes, a serious attempt by Triumph at WSS would be excellent, what about that young fella Lee Jackson on it, 600 ST winner, great stuff,

I switched off in disgust when Glen was not allowed to pick his bike up and carry on. That would have made for an interesting come back ride but once again this shambles of a championship has robbed the public of some entertainment.
