"I don't think I did anything different in the crash"

should read:

“I don't think I did anything different in crashing"

I'm sorry Ruben is hurt and I hope he heals up quick, but this is getting a bit ridiculous. It surely doesn't matter how much personal sponsorship he brings with him when he keeps putting a whole bunch of parts in the rubbish skip at each meeting. It's what you'd call 'unsustainable consumption'.

Everyone likes Ruben but this just isn't working.

Was a horrible accident, lucky that nobody hit him. I was surprised that in the first 5-6 rounds of the year he never crash, but regularly he shows he hadn't forget it. WSB wouldn't be the same without him. Come back soon, Ruben!

Past his sell by date! Are his personal sponsors selling medical insurance? Not worth a seat at WSBK level, you could just about explain the crashes if he was up the sharp end, but he's crashing constantly while battling as an also ran

wow, get real, he is obviously not worth a TK honda, I don't understand how these 'personal backers' keep sponsoring him? Dodgy marketing department surely?!

rubens is a likeable eedjit,and he always finds new ways to chuck himself of a bike,but alas it dont matter what bike he rides ,he chucks them all at the scenery (a lot).this honda seems to be a shed tho? rubens ,rea and now lowes,seem to not understand why they crash "it just lets go",tk are a good big team,but they have got this bike all, wrong,the hm plant team dont seem to have similar problems,we will find out come silverstone if hm can run wsbk pace this year ,is it just the electronic package not set up right ?

Na,JR says the Blade is fully developed,there is no more areas to improve it,it doesnt seem to tolerate high corner entry speed,JR is slow on entry in to fast corners(guintoli came from behid to pass JR on the braking zone at the end of the straight at barber-on a ducati!!)combine that with a slow engine+a midfield position is the best you can expect..
