Part of the reason that this is coming in is that riders are resorting to silly diets to lose kilos. Now whilst that has probably been leaked to the press to bolster the case for the combined weight regulations, it is a valid issue.
Personally, I do feel that Scott Redding for one was severely disadvantaged this year. An there's a definite link between weights and costs. The overall weight mentioned seems generous for sure. There can be less money spent of some components which will make things a bit cheaper, especially for the lighter guys.
The weight certainly seemed to impact checa this year. Oh, and can anyone else foresee these midget jockeys unable to pick their bikes up after a spill? And will the marshalls need to beef up a bit? Manual handling regulations, anyone?
