Cal, trully talented riders are able to do more than just ride fast. You've demonstrated your ability to ride fast all season. Portugal was your time to demonstrate your intellegence and self discipline. You did it in style mate and the people sitting at home will realise you've now matured, which might allow you to become WSBK and maybe even MotoGP World Champion one day. Keep it up - Calzone. :D

@ Calzone...I agree with you here. I too think he will go on to be a superstar. He just seems to have it all and the testing times from Valencia show that he will be in the mix in 2010.

I'm just glad that as a supporter of all our british superstars, Cal has managed to stick two fingers up at all those who came on here at the begining of the year and slagged him off for being arrogant and big headed and said he was sh**e. Arrogant and big headed he maybe, but what a way too prove your own self belief. Well done Cal and good luck to you and all the other brits for 2010. Bring it on !!!!! :) :)

Well done to Cal for a great effort all year and He will no doubt be within the top 3 all next year. I just cant help but think if it has been the bike, I cant remember Cal ever being on a bad bike or even the best bike on the grid.

Yeah you gotta give Cal props. Very dominate performance indeed. The Brits are certainly going to be very well represented in 2010. They have a handful of guys who are going to be on the sharp end right off the bat. I may be a Yank (Texan first) but am of English, Irish descent and kinda of have a soft spot for riders from the UK. I mean geezzz, Rae, Crutchlow, Toseland, Haslam, Camier. Wow!!! Very possible to have all UK podiums. We should have a Brit standing up there for most every race. Yamaha was smart to go out and get Cal. One thing for sure Haga, Fabrizio and Biaggia have a long row to hoe. On paper this should be a championship for the ages. Bunch of fast guys. Go Cal !!!!!!

Agreed. 2010 could possibly be the one of the best and closest seasons ever in WSB. So many potential winners. You have the old school up against the young guns. Let's not forget Vermeulen too who is a class rider and Guintoli. There won't be any one rider that is dominant, it will all be down to consistency.
Can't wait!
