They don't show much of a rider if he is out front on his own - it doesn't make for interesting TV.

Well done Kuba - hopefully a win will come soon.

It is difficult to know why he hasn't already already claimed a few wins because his frequently excellent results in qualifying show he is a very fast rider - perhaps needs to work on setup on worn tyres and / or race fitness.

re: "They don't show much of a rider if he is out front on his own"

it depends on the rider it seems. if it were somebody more notable, i'm convinced they would've shown more. but now that i rewatch it, the slight seemed to be not so much with the cameras, as it was with the world feed commentary by green and martin. they definitely seemed to be focused on what was going on with biaggi and melandri (for obvious reasons) and of course haslam and camier (sykes) since it's a home round. also, many of these guys were the ones sporting the new cameras. iirc, the states haven't shown anything qualifying or practice related regarding WSBK since like laguna '01 (bostrom was riding L&M). so we here in the states had no clue during the race as to the fri/sat row. :( my kingdom for a eurosport feed.
