WSBK » Haslam: The goal has to be to beat Biaggi!


Having seen chief title rival Max Biaggi close to within just three points of him in the standings last time out at Monza, Alstare Suzuki star Leon Haslam knows he needs to re-establish his 2010 World Superbike Championship supremacy at Kyalami this weekend

Hey Leon, I watched your father race and now watch you. I like you both but it seems to me that Biaggi is very determine this year! Good luch to you.

i posted a comment last week that i sensed a bit of pressure showing in Leon. ( i hope i'm wrong) but i don't think he should be worried too much about beating 1 specific rider. it was evident that the gsxr was the best bike on the grid from the start, but since then others have caught up . that makes for great racing. in F1 last year button flew away and only just made in over the line at the end. maybe it will be the same here. i hope that Leon can keep it together and be consistent. you don't have to win every race to become champion just stay on and get podiums while others around you throw it down the road in panic . thats how JT got his 2 championships !!!! :)

The championship is slowly looking as though it's going to come down to the top two(Leon and Max)though thing's can change pretty quickly, so yes i can understand Leon wanting to go and take point's off his nearest challenger.But at the same time it would be pretty easy to take your eye off the rest of the field and suddenly find there are another couple of challenger's for the title! So leon has to keep doing what he is doing, ride hard but most importantly enjoy his racing, then i believe thing's will continue to go as they have been(consistently well)and before you know it..He's a world champ!!

As good as Leon might be (and as nice a guy as he might be), he will always revert to his usual position. 2nd. He's a perenial nearly man. Came ever so close so many times but never won anything. I hope he changes this but somehow I don't think so. some guys are winners and some aren't. Crutchlow, Camier all winners. Haslam, E Laverty - nearly men. Sorry but true.

Leon might get his chance at Kyalami. Max's Ape didn't look too clever over the bumps at Monza and Kyalami is quite a bumpy circuit. Got a feeling the Yams might be in for more setup woes too.

Max had it to easy on Sunday,lucky though that Rae had a game of hide and seek and Cal took the Yam engine to the limits. The motogp derived Aprilia is damn fast(did it have the gear driven cams in it)and the only way any of the other manufactures can keep up with it is in it's slipstream.I think the championship will be between Leon and Max, hope the deciding factor isn't the points lost by Leon 11psi issue.Max can have good day's and bad days, when he does it's generally a double dose for him.I'm still favouring Leon because i think he will be more consistent than Max.
