Whilst Pirelli might be telling the some truths i would just like to highlight to those that might not be into bike racing a lie within their tale. The whole never in 100 years has anything like this happened. Well last year at Monza race 1 was cancelled and then race 2 was called off. Here's the thing, yes the conditions were unusual but to have a wet tyre delaminate after a lap....well. So they turned up at Monza with a crap tyre and yet Pirelli had actually designed a tyre for just this sort of conditions for the North West 200 as the weather is patchy at best in NI and the speeds at this road race are well over 200mph at point. This is not the only time Pirelli have f'd up in WSBK either...stories of tyres being left in a container for a year in Australia... imagine how many heat cycles they went through before actually getting on the bikes They seem to be blaming everyone except themselves...had they taken some responsiblity for any of this i may have found their statement easi
