WSBK » Rea: More damage than expected in wrist

How can you guys possibly state that the rider is poor? He is always faster than his team mate, and even in his rookie 2009 season teaming up with Carlos Checa and Kyo, Rea didn't look bad. I am not saying Rea is the next big thing in WSBK racing or will amaze everyone if he would head to GPs, but I sincerely doubt Rea is poor. He *might* be a a lesser development rider, but the blade is for sure lacking development, because Neukirchner lat year or Xaus this year are not supposed to be at the end of the field.

WSBK » Rea: More damage than expected in wrist

1. An isle of man superbike, bsb-spec bike, or any other domestic superbike is not the same as a WSBK spec bike, regardless of what is being said. Let's make that clear. Even though the blade may perform well in other championships, it is a comparison that can not be made. 2. Ten Kate might be a little dealership, but their honda dealership activity has little to do with their racing activity. They are very competent in what they do. 3. Although Ten Kate is striclty seen not a full factory effort, they do receive a whole bunch of factory support, even though they might not always willingly admit. Nevertheless, I do not think it is because of the riders that the blade is performing poorly. Considering the age of the blade, I think development is reaching the limit.

WSBK » Checa, Ducati pull clear with ‘double double’

@SP3: It doesn't matter, that's why I said "not to take anything away from Carlos". The guy is riding hard, good, and fair. However, we have to put this in the right context and nuance things right. People mention him being on a private team with a private bike, while the other top riders such as the aprilia are factory efforts, suggesting that Carlos has inferior equipment. Fact is that he is not on an inferior bike, just a different one, which puts "private bike" very much into another perspective in this case. Maxime Berger is the right example of running a private ducati, with no factory support.
