Well, we know what the bike is capable of, so there should be no excuses!. If you haven't won at least one of the opening 2 races then your chances are slim!...testing doesn't bode too well, I know it is early days yet, but don't forget what Spies accomplished in testing last year, off the bat he was head and shoulders above the competition, you 'should' be doing the same if youe xpect to win, WSBK is DucatiLand, and you really have to be on your best id you expect to beat them. Good luck!...if I were a betting man I would put my money on your teammate or 4 other guys as potential odds on winners.

Go JT, I think he can do the business next year, and I can't wait for the day we have an all British podium in WSBK which is the greatest and most entertaining world championship in motorcycle racing (in my opinion)

Thanks alot FZ1 I just shot coffee out of my nose!!

Too true and too funny. :D

and Raw you're right - I can't figure out if Crash likes Toseland or hates him beyond reason. He looks like he's a member of a boy band.

I know Colin Edwards is an American, but surely he could make himself understood, so why would it be good to have a English speaking partner, can't be the team as they are an Italian Team, Wake up Toseland and get a life..............

Kinda arrogant of you James. Putting more pressure on yourself to perform may not be the smartest thing to do. WSBK has changed immensely since you left and you may be surprised at the current depth of talent since you left. your teammate Crutchlow is gonna beat ya as he has been riding the R1 for a full season in BSB and demolished most of the competition. I remeber the Hopper talkin trash too about how he was goona run at the front and challenge Spies and we all know what happened to him, pushed beyond his skills on a new bike to keep up with riders he thought were beneath him and just about crippled himself out of a career. Take your time, you got a few more years let to redeem yourself.
