@tv boy - Their road tires are nothing like the ones they bring to a track. But if I was in a track day I would get them. Bridgestone tires are very consistent and allow riders to push almost as hard on the end of the race, as they do in the beginning. All Motogp riders like them, all that they are asking is for better/faster warm up and more range of temperatures, like for cold mornings.
Bridgestone has been unlucky this year with extreme cold weather in some tracks, like Assen. I think it was one of the coldest that Assen ever provided.

This might help Elias as he can't get heat into his tyres... but about time Bridgestone have woken up they should have done this at the beginning of the season

@tv boy

I'd love to see a tyre war again, but I'd hate to hear riders complain that someone else has won because he had better tyres. Now that Rossi is not the top gun and is getting beaten consistently, **** would fly week in week out.

This was due to happen sooner or later. I didnt really think that Bridgestone would go for it this season. Good decision. Otherwise they would probably have to pack their bags.

No luck for Elias: his alleged problem is getting hit in the rear tyre, but Bridgestone will be bringing a 3rd front tire. It maybe will help Rossi with the front end of his Ducati, though. And if it doesn't, they'll bring back the midnight specials just for him.
