Shane Byrne hopes ‘normal service can resume’ at Cadwell Park for Be Wiser Ducati as he solely concentrates on collecting further Podium Points ahead of the MCE British Superbike championship Showdown.

The five-time BSB champion endured a difficult Thruxton round when tyre wear woes forced him to retire from race two having missed out on the podium in the opening race.

Byrne says despite the disappointment Thruxton came as a timely reminder to his Be Wiser Ducati team not to take anything for granted having previously stormed to four consecutive race wins before Thruxton and take the BSB championship lead.

“In some ways, it seems like Thruxton was months ago, I'm that keen to put what can only be described as a massive disappointment as far behind us as possible,” Byrne said. “I'm looking forward to getting to the next race now at Cadwell Park and hoping to resume some sort of normal service, and by that I mean winning.

“Thruxton actually taught us as a team a bit of a valuable lesson, one I'm very keen to put to good use this coming weekend. There are only two rounds left now to gain as many Podium Points as I can and I intend to grab as many as possible to put myself in the best possible position for the Showdown.”

Byrne currently heads up the BSB standings by 19 points from Leon Haslam while he also leads the JG Speedfit Kawasaki rider on Podium Points with 30 to Haslam’s 21.
