Yep alex and sam lowes are the real deal, I wish them all the best. Though it seems Alex has had bit more misfortune than sam over the last year with his rides but its like his SETON ride be the first for him to show what he is capable of.

I'm not being sexist or anything but does Jenny Tinmouth really deserve a WSS chance?BSS cup is alot different to racing Lascorz,Laverty and "Sofa-glue".Their is more capable and more deserving (based on performances)riders in BSS.Where is "Hutchy" or Glen Richards for example.All credit to Jenny for what she is doing in BSS cup but this is a level too far.

No doubt Jack Burnicle will be saying things like "she's doing ever so well", "I know she really enjoys her racing" and "she's trying ever so hard" if she gets anywhere enar the points.

I reckon Jenny T has been improving alot recently and a front spot in BSS cup is not to be sniffed at. She did great in 125's and is fastest lady at the IOM TT, I'll certainly be cheering her on.

She works on her own bikes doesn't ask for any consideration and races hard - go Jenny!

Go Jenny!
Although I think she may struggle at this level I think it will be the machinary and not her ability that let her down.
Wild cards at a british round should be fild by British riders in my opinion. To me this is a chance for British riders to show what they can do up against the worlds best. Riders like Kio had there chance.

cruchynuts i think most of the bss paddock would like to be there but by what i hear its around 5k for a wild card entry and not sure if that include tyres petrol etc... if im wrong please correct me.

so as you can imagine people like gns and came prob think its worth stumping up the entry fee as they will get some great covered at the home round. i hope the bss boys do well think they are capable as after the top 5/6 it isnt that strong,could see a few of them upsetting the big boys

shame we wont see others from bss in there like gowla,richards, reckon theyd mix it up with the big boys to

I agree with the comment that it will be machinery rather than rider that lets down Jenny Tinmouth. Given the way Europsort's coverage works we don't see much of her on the TV, but her TT performances were impressive.

I was at Knockhill and she rode a really good race in appalling conditions, finishing 19th overall and proably would have made a few more places if the race had gone on a few more laps as was planned.

Good to see a big turnout in WSS as well, after last year this years series hasn't been as impressive with Yamaha pulling out and such a small grid

I also agree Jenny could struggle....but given that she will get more coverage on TV (for her sponsors) lets all hope that someone !!! can get her a couple of good fast engines for Silverstone....

Are you reading this Simon Buckmaster ? The PR will do you a world of good. :D
