No backing off for Byrne

“Thruxton ticked some boxes in terms of winning the most races, but I can't rest on my laurels” – Shane Byrne.
Defending MCE British Superbike Champion Shane Byrne will be pushing as hard as ever for race wins in this weekend's Bank Holiday Monday round.

Victorious in three out of the four races this year, including a double last time at Thruxton, the PBM Kawasaki star has now won more races than any rider in BSB history.

The Englishman also holds an early 15-point cushion over Alex Lowes, although BSB's Showdown title format means nothing will be decided until the end of the season.

Nevertheless, Byrne won't be backing off: “Thruxton ticked some boxes in terms of winning the most races, but I can't rest on my laurels and with the chance of a fourth title we will be aiming for even more wins at Oulton Park!”

Can't help the feeling that Shakey is going to be unstoppable and will certainly be leading the points into the showdown (when it becomes much more of a sprint lottery). I think others may well take wins and podiums off him, but Shakey's going to be consistently up there you'd have to say.

I like Shakey, he always comes across as a decent bloke, so it was very interesting listening to the interview with Tony Carter at the weekend on Eurosport. Shakey said how he felt BSB 'was a level playing field' whilst openly admitting they had been taking part in illegal testing off season. Perhaps things are only level when Paul Bird is holding the spirit level....
