Dunlop in BSB?
The guy is of course very fast on a road course (read 'fearless') but I don't think he's short circuit potential.

Whenever I see him I can't help thinking that he's about 2 stone overweight- surely as a professional sportsman this is not good? That's another 14kg he's accelerating, stopping and turning.
He's also awful in front of the camera- just not media savvy at all.
A gifted rider, but I just don't see him as a complete package.

No need for a silly nick name, no need for so much yellow you look like a daffodil, no well rehearsed robotic corporate speeches just pure undiluted talent.
Exciting race, exciting rider. Mega win.

@@ JON whats with all this twaddle you post (no short circut potential)did you ever see him ride any?,i have, and hes bl00dy fast there too,he does not do many, any he does is more to test/set up bikes,but if he switched to s/ circuts, he would win those as well.

I think it's time we did without the Superbike class and ran only Superstock or the Evo class instead. Apart from cutting costs, it would show the real potential of these bikes rather than that of the quarter of a million pound "Fireblade" replicas that Honda currently runs in BSB.
