Is Neil blaming the riders? I thought it was the teams job
to give the riders bikes that are reliable & fit to win
races! It was funny when he said he got mad bcoz the
team was called Resultless on a Internet site, 2 flukey podiums
should make him happy then :)

Think TT came a little to soon this year for Cameron..Bruce can't keep just turning up to a meeting and expect to be competetive..He needs to do some of the spade work as well.. Can't see both of them being with the team next year..Seeley kicked both their asses at the Northwest 200.. Michael is making the bike work in BSB so where's the problem with the team.. Can't see one myself..Those boys should of had a great base setting from Camerons lap record in qualifying last year..

I can see Cam being there next year with TAS but sadly not Bruce. On his day there is no one to touch Bruce at least on a stocker but he did not seem to be on it this year. He is far from washed up though. Cam still has the desire but you can hardly blame him for the cautious approach this year. All that said, the TAS bikes did not look like they were handling at all well this year, you only have to look at the TV footage to see it.

Replacements? I think it will just be the one and the only one I can see jumping for it would be Amor.

I certainly hope not M Dunlop, at least until he gets that spoilt brat win or crash 'don't care if I die' mentality out of his system.

The fact that Cam cracked 202mph through Sulby on the GP bike shows he has it and this years bikes dont. The GP bike is quick, but for a ridearound setup for the TT it isn't that much faster than a well prepared superbike.
