There's only 6 races left, but he's still got a chance of catching Haslam. Rea has really calmed down with his wild style but is still a joy to watch. He's also the best of the young guns by a comfortable margin (Haslam has too many seasons of top-flight racing to come into this category...)

Rea was a lot more relaxed this weekend, much more than in previous rounds. Hopefully Ten Kate will continue to give him a bike that is capable of running at the front.
Two good rides from him, another class Irish rider!

How refreshing to see a young rider really enjoying his racing and giving great honest interviews a credit to him and his team good luck for the rest of the season

Nice and humble, magnanimous in defeat. Just so much to like about this dude. Hopefully next year he can be given the equipment to truly perform. Perhaps some proper Honda help aswell. This year i can see him catching Haslam if he keeps the current form up.
Go REA!!! :)

If only some of the f*ckwits that come on here dragging up the nationality issue at every oppertunity could behave as Jonny does.....they do their countrymen a great disservice by undermining their achievements with ugly political/religious bigotry.....whether Jonny chooses to call himself British or Irish its entirely up to him, he seems happy with the former so why not respect his choice?

Btw..where are these rumours that Toseland will be at Ten Kate next year? personally i wouldnt mind that one bit. Rea and Toseland would be a good combo. Sorry Max...best thing for him is to secure the Yoshi Suzuki ride next year.

Anyone have any links for toseland to ten kate? thanks in advance

Rea rode superbly.

BUT its misleading to cite Rea led for 27 laps & Crutchlow for 9 as tho somehow Rea was better overall and a bit unlucky.

Crutchlow was smart in staying close but not pressing Rea so hard they got into place swapping and lost speed. The pair of them were so far ahead in both races third was a differnt post code.

Both good. Both smart.
