WSBK » Xaus targeting 'big highs' with Castrol Honda

Castrol Honda new boy Rubén Xaus is not remotely cowed by the struggles of his CBR1000RR predecessor Max Neukirchner - as he reveals that his goal is 'to be ahead of everybody' in the 2011 World Superbike Championship

Nah, your all wrong, Rubens has mellowed and if he can get the bike working for him will be right on the pace !!!

But then again there might be the odd spectacular prang should he get abit over enthusiastic.

I'd rather see Xuas pushing and (at times) crashing out than poking around at the back of the grid getting ready to be lapped. I hope Ruben really takes to this bike the way he did with his Ducati when he rode alongside Troy. There were some good rides on his part back in 2001.

That was Byrne's ride all day long, until Xaus effectively 'bought' it with sponsorship dollars. If Byrne is doing the business in BSB (as I expect him to) in 2011, and Xaus is his usual crash-happy self, then expect a swap-round come 2012...
