Could Provecs be all the team needed to push the bike over the brink?

Not gonna read too much into the post season test, but looking promising, specially as Tom's so relaxed and upbeat. CAN'T WAIT FOR THE NEW SEASON!

GO TOM 66!!!

Now that Yamaha left, my suport is with Kawasaki, hope the green team can do a great season with Juan and specially Sykes.

Hope that Hooper#21 be great too with Suzuki.

Good ol' Sykesy! It's a good thing Kawi didn't let him go last season - they almost did! Nothing would make me happier than to see the long-suffering green bike riding up front and winning races regularly. Go Green (and go Hopper!)

really din expect that much from Sykes. But hes always been impressive when racing alone (Qualifyings)... Hope he develops overtaking potential as well becz d bikes got power. I have some expectatns from Lascorz as last time he was hurt n coudnt test much. dont forget he used to give laverty some good competition in WSS.

I really want Tom to do well and I hope that the team do well this year however i would add that the kwak hasnt struggled to put in quick laps this year... the problem lies in the fact that it shreds tires and loses pace over 30 laps... I really really hope that they get this addressed this year as god knows Toms got the ability

Great for the Grinner/Joan/Kawii

They are addressing the problems from this seasons competition...tire wear over the course of the race.

Now they can compete for more podiums and top fives next year.

cant wait!

That time being in the top 5 in QP for the same track a month ago shows you that CRT can certainly be a success in GP. Just something to mull over.

Grinner is a front end rider and is fast when the front tyre is new(niall mackenzie was similar) then gradually works his way backwards,and its not confined to the Kwak,he was the same on the R1.Hopefully he is not too old to modify his riding style and be fast all race.
