So pleased to hear Jonathan is back to being 100% fit. I have been a fan of his since his B.S.B. days and have always known he had good things ahead of him. If there is one rider out there that you can guarantee will give his all on race day, it is Jonathan Rea and I am looking forward to watching him do exactly that on Sunday! Go Jonny, Go Jonny, Go Jonny, Go Jonny, GO GO GO !!!

@ Realistic Fan - For God's sake, such negativity is depressing!! What do you want? You are the type that would make derogatory remarks if a rider like Jonny, didn't make any effort and just hung back instead of going for it and trying as hard as he could !! Racing is about trying to win - at all costs sometimes, so give J.R. some praise for doing exactly that! Can you imagine if riders thought "OOh, I might fall off if I go a bit faster", or "Better keep away from that group in front,I might not be able to cope with them and er, might fall off"!!!!!!!!!!!!! "I'll just stay at the back, out of any trouble"!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Jonny was fast in both races at Assen last year, winning each one. No crashes there. Even if he does come off, if he can, he will get back on and can pass riders like a knife through butter!!!!

Crikey, i think @TDS has a crush!

Yes he is fast, yes he crashes some of the time, no he doesn't crash ALL of the time - are we all agreed on that?!

He is an exciting rider, and I hope he manages to find a balance this season between going fast and crashing. He is pushing a bike which is not necessarily top-step material, and in order to make it look as fast as he does, he has to push hard.
