James Toseland, Yamaha Sterilgarda World Superbike Team (DNF,DNF):

'Unfortunately we had a technical issue in race one when I felt I could have challenged for the podium. Once again in race two...I had the pace to go for the podium. It just seems that luck isn't with me at the moment.'

So there you go. Would have been a double podium but for bad luck!

there you go fans JT career success is owed to his luck and not by his talent..LOL

well atleast i wouldn't blame him for crashing twice as he pushes himself to get a decent result. eventually to get team to sign him on the decent bike.. not that his not on the decent bike right now, but from what i read from one of JT's fans in MCN that JT deserved a decent ride for next year.. lol funny!

Well done to Cal for making up his poor race finish in race one with a podium in race two. Massimo team-manager is right not to even mention Toseland's name in the press release. Well I predicted that Cal will beat Toseland and has done so in a way that Yamaha ousted him from the team for next year well done to the Yamaha management on that right decision IMO.

Crutchlow: only non-Ducati rider to podium at the weekend.

Toseland: only regular factory rider not making it into Superpole and only rider to double DNF at the weekend, posting up his sixth race crash of the year.

Says it all really. Please close the door on your way out Mr T.

To be fair to JT the bike did break down in race 1 after he had fought his way up into the top 8 (?) and was still going forward.
Still don't understand what was going on in superpole tho' for him to end up 17th......he sat in the garage for a long time when he should have been out trying to ensure his position was safe to get thro' to the next round...????
Cal has really outshone him this season,that's got to have been hard to take, the bike has been problematic for sure, but overall JT has failed to live up to the hype & expectation.
