Person above: It's only in the last few years that it has been uncommon to see riders lapped in the race. In 2005 with Battaini and in 2006 with Cardoso, lapping was more common. It is due to the strength of the whole of the grid now that lapping is uncommon. Neither Yoshikawa nor Akiyoshi are bad, in a WSBK race both would probably be able to keep up with some of the regulars. I look for to the duel of the test riders at Catalunya.
