WSBK » EXCLUSIVE Toseland: I didn't fail in MotoGP

After losing his Tech 3 Yamaha ride to 2009 World Superbike Champion Ben Spies, James Toseland will return to WSBK in 2010 - but he is adamant that he did not fail in the premier class, and suggests he has unfinished business there that he would one day like to complete

The headline made me laugh when I saw it :)

You failed JT, that's why you lost your job. Did you expect that being a backmarker would be good enough?

You probably also crashed more than Randy De Puniet, which is not something to be proud of.

Lets see your a$$ get kicked in WSB next season...

Crash really do seem to like standing poor old JT up so everybody can pile in and knock him back down again don't they?

I would never knock a guy for striving to be the best.....even if you fail to reach that goal, to try in itself is an achievement most of us aren't worthy of.

He correctly says that the talent level in depth is much higher than WSB, well it was when you entered motogp JT but, I think you will also find the talent level in WSB is better than it was when you moved on and you have a nasty shock coming to you matey boy. WSB is not going to be as easy as you think it is Mr Toseland.

Why all the hate, guys? From what i can see, james appears to be being honest in this interview and telling it like it is. Yes, he didn't have a great two years, but there were reasons. He's still britain's top rider currently competing, so why not cut him a bit of slack, eh? Besides, i'd like to see how many of you so-called 'experts' could win two wsbk championships.

Correct, it's better to try and fail than never try at all - in which answers the debate, he did try and he did fail. Over two seasons he finished in the lower half of the field, nuff said.
