It's brilliant that the racing is so close and anyone can win, Max will try even though he doesn't look bothered sometimes, this is what bike racing is all about keep up the chase it's anyone's title

@Stoo

I assume in "fairer" you mean that Max's Aprilia doesnt have such a massive advantage anymore?

Get a grip.....the Aprilia is not the best handling bike by a long shot and if it has ALWAYS been soooo much better then why do no other teams use them in WSBK or BSB? Only Max can win on the thing and that is because he is WORLD CLASS!

Get over yourself Biaggi hater. Boring.

Gaz, you numpty...get it right and stop trolling.

I'm not a Biaggi hater, far from it, I love the competition and fight he brings. Fairer wasn't directed at Aprilia/Biaggi, more that it's anyone's game at the moment. The BMWs and Kwaka's have come to full race maturity. Something that everyone wants to see.

Errr and as for your facts about other teams not using the Aprilia in BSB and WSBK... think you'll find there's Splitlath in BSB and ParkinGo in WSBK.

I meant factory teams.

Splitlath, yeah they have won loads of racers and gotten on the podium and Chaz isnt doing that well either.

The RSV4 is no way the best bike on the grid and the BMW produced more BHP.

@ Gaz

If you give me your home address I'll post you back your dummy that you spat from your pram.
The points being made are that this season it appears winners can be on many brands of bike - BMW, Kawasaki, Honda, Aprilia & Ducati. No one has a clear advantage - some have top speed but not the best handling, some have great handling but not outright speed, others suffer premature tyre wear. It's mostly track dependant and is giving us great racing.
I, and many others, am enjoying what I believe will be the best WSBK season for years. We just need to lose the fan boy numpties like you off Crash.net now

The aprilia has been caught up performance wise by bmw looking at the streight line speed anyway, its the bmw thats looking like the package to have whereas its been the factory aprilias In the last few years, kwaks looking good too! Makes for an awesome championship

max seem to require longer time compared to his competition to set his bike up, many a times he does good only on Sunday, he gotta need to qualify better, cos if anyone knows how to start off the grid, its biaggi and pedrosa. perhaps its the new crew and him not having best working together...yet.

Max says "There are more contenders for the podium and staying up front has become more and more difficult" and this is why WSBK is more exciting than MotoGP the last couple of years...and throw in the different manufacturers as I remember races where 6 different manufacturers were in racing positions 1 through 6.
