WSBK » Golden Lion Leon roars to victory


Joe, as for other Americans... Riders like Spies are pretty rare. I don't think there's anyone that would have an immediate impact like he did, but with a season under their belt and good bike there's at least two or three guys from the AMA that could ride near the front every race. I consider Haslam to be the top Brit, but let's not forget he had prior experience at this level--even before last season (03 & 04). For anyone not named Spies, seat time and testing contributes enormously to success.

WSBK » Golden Lion Leon roars to victory


Joe, I disagree entirely. Spies needed to move on and I respect him for that. He needed to see how he stacks up against the worlds best (Rossi, Stoner, Lorenzo & Pedrosa) and he proved he was worthy to try. Had he chosen to play it safe with another year in WSBK--assuming he had a choice--I think he would have "lost" the respect of fans. Besides, anyone that wouldn't respect Spies as a rider after what he did in 2009, probably won't ever respect him. Let him test the waters in GP. If he can't cut it, he can come back to WSBK and reign again--much like Bayliss.

WSBK » Golden Lion Leon roars to victory


The idea of Rea going to GP comes from Wayne Gardner in his youtube review of last years WSBK bikes. His comment was largely based on Rea's excellent second half to 2009. It was so impressive that many picked him to win it all in 2010. So far that hasn't really come to fruition so Garnders idea of Rea to GP in 2011 has faded quickly. It's not impossible, but Rea will need to do a lot to move up. For now, he's going to be staying in WSBK. All that being said, I feel Rea & Haslam are the brightest young talents in WSBK. Both could win a WC here....though probably not this season for Rea. Haslam...he's already got a one hand on that 2010 trophey.
