I have the feeling that while Ben is the benchmark currently, the other teams are getting better but surpassing Mr. Spies will be a tall order. The last part of the season will be a good one with a bit more parity to keep things interesting.

Jonathan really is an old head on young shoulders. He's very serious and professional in his approach to racing (not unlike Spies) and he's also blindingly quick. If Rea had the amount of experience that Spies has I'm sure he would be a serious threat in any championship he cares to enter. I think Honda are going to nurture this kid and take him to a title in some class.

I'm definitely a fan of Johnny Rea and have been for some time now and it's great to see how he is developing in the TK Superbike team if nothing else to show everyone how lame (once again - yawn...) old Carlos Checa is and come to think of it unfortunately Kyonari as well. After his brands double he should be well on a roll by now but seems to be another of the Japanese one or two track wonders we have seen over the decades with only one or two exceptional (it has to be said) exceptions. Carlos has somehow ($'s and connections I guess) been saved from the bullet more times than I can actually remember throughout his career when there are far superior riders(like Jamie Stauffer)being missed.
