They didn't have these sorts of problems, at least not at this frequency, before Yoshimura got involved.....the Yoshi bike that wildcarded last year with Josh Waters on board was dog slow and that seems to have carried over.....the factory aren't interested, the bike is out of date, Alstare had no success with Suzuki in recent years, its tempting to believe they're flogging a dead horse a bit like Ten Kate with the Fireblade...its only Jonathan Rea's bravery & talent that keeps that in contention

I find it a real shame the way this season has gone for the team so far.
Camier has been fairly consistent from the start on saying the chassis is good but they are down on power.
Given the showing of the Yoshi bike last year and those kinds of comments you can't help feel that maybe that deal hasn't worked out. I'm sure the cost of developing their own engines would have been massive but this could end up costing them more.
Hoping they don't go back next year as it was always going to take a while to consistently run up there at this level.
Fingers crossed they and Yoshi find something to put the situation right. They are a British team after all so let's get behind them!!

Not so fast guys-Crescent Fixi ain't doing no worse than Ten Kate are doing with the Cbr1000rr,with the exception of Rea of course(he's the real deal imo)Give them a year of experience+data + see what happens.Wsbk aint like it was 5 years ago,Aprilia,Bmw+Kawasaki are spending millions on their projects...Onwards+Upwards i think.
