Max Neukirchner's 2010 World Superbike season goes from bad to worse as two accidents prevent him from finishing either race at Brno.

Rea didn't suffer a horrendous accident last year (although that's quite surprising given the way he rode! :) ).

Hope Max gets his confidence back, if he does he'll be a weapon. I personally think it was a bad choice to move to a new team and new bike after that accident. I think he needed some familiarity in order to help rebuild his confidence. Sticking with Suzuki would have been the best choice, since he was already familiar with that bike and team.

Now he's having to learn a new team, a new bike, and try to rebuild his confidence. Would be better to eliminate some of those things from the equation, but too late for that. I just hope he gets it sorted.

I think its best for Max and for Ten Kate to part at the end of the season if things dont change. I dont think Max is a washed out racer just yet, just that the Honda purely and simply doesnt suit his style. He could most likely be in the Yoshimura Suzuki which would do him a world of confidence. Meanwhile, Id love to see James Toseland back at Ten Kate. Haters say what you like, but i just think that sorta bike may well be what Toseland needs to get back to the top......i hope it comes true next season.....

A great pity but I don't think that Max has been able to overcome the mental effects of his "biggy" last year.

I wish Max the best of luck but maybe it's bye bye Mr. Neukirchner time and not just from Ten Kate.
