WSS » Cluzel: Sofuoglu has trained how to hit bikes and not crash


@ alicihat The so-called racing authorities you mention (Brits - French - Spaniards)........ You are aware that it is almost entirely run by Spaniards I assume ?!?! The Brits and French have little or no input into what happens other than on the track . You seem to have exceptional access to technical details of the machinery and an unhealthy view of several nationalities and their apparent discrimination based on racers country of origin, do you really think if he was that good he would be passed over just because he is from Turkey ? As I've said before , he is a good racer (sometimes a little over aggressive) but just unable to successfully step up to the next level.

WSS » Cluzel: Sofuoglu has trained how to hit bikes and not crash


@ profx Name has nothing to do with it, did you even watch moto2 last season ? Lowes took a big risk going to a team than runs the least favoured speed up chassis and struggled but got the best out of what he had and this year has been rewarded by getting some of the changes he was asking for. As for KS he had his chances to break away from ss600 and didn't do well enough to merit a better team picking him up and is unlikely to get another. You mention KRT, Tom Sykes went to WSBK with (pbm) Kawasaki when the bike was nowhere in the championship and performed well and so was rewarded with a bit of loyalty and when they came out with the current bike he re-payed them for this with a fight for and then the championship. You don't have to be winning or on the best package to earn your place you just need to be getting the best out of the package available to you which raises your own and the teams profile, which outwith ss600 KS seems to be unable to do.

"Best of the best on 600" He's only been on top for so long because it is seen as a feeder class and those that can, move on to bigger ang better things, which KS has tried but ended up back where he is. I don't think anybody would argue that he is a good rider but if people like Cal Crutchlow or Jonathan Rae had hung around in the 600s as long as KS has he wouldn't be a multiple champion with a record amount of wins in the class.

ProfessorX:
realfan: The pata bike being no slouch last year had a lot to do with the rider (vdm) , who in case you hadn't noticed is looking very good on the superbike early on in his rookie season (on a bike that is far from the best on the grid). You seem to have an issue with the Lowes brothers for some reason, are you actually just using them as the benchmark to measure other riders like Kenan against ? Shame he's not quite at that level yet.
probably had more to do with Honda's marketing department. vdm was not the only pata rider running fast that year.
Can you please explain how a marketing department won the championship and not the rider on the bike ?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?
