I wouldn't go as far as to say Byrne is the best, but he has shown, & not for the first time, that he is as fast as any of them. As long as the Althea team can keep up with the factory teams development Byrne has as great a chance as anyone this season.

I know crashes happen, but what was to be gained pushing that hard trying to beat checas time in the previous session he was already comfortably within the top 20 for superpole and in that one brain out moment he has blown his whole weekend. Dumb.

Nitro etc will be crying in their sleep.

Whoever posted shakey is dumb for pushing to beat checa obviously hasnt raced or doesnt ride themselves, when your feeling good you just ride fast it doesnt feel risky it feels easy but at their speed its so easy to crash accidents just happen. Xuas crashed and wrecked his bikes 3 times in one day without hurting himself, its all about luck.

No.... Christ almighty not another Crash... What's going on with Shakey ? He's normally dead reliable and rarely crashes. Warm up is warm up, not qualifying for goodness sake. I can't believe that lads luck...
