We all expect to see the suzuki far away, as work was done, last season with an italian looser, the team did better than this season. So why did they change the team : they are since the beginning of the season with less points with 2 riders than in 2011 and the last manufacturer in the wsbk standing. For the rest, we will see a great battle between the top contenders for the title and Sykes will do everything for getting on the highest level of the podium : let's do it a double win !

Im with you all the way on wanting Sykes to get a double win, but your criticism of Crescent Fixi is a bit harsh. Italian Loser? You mean Fabrizio? The ex race winner? Or Alstare? You can't compare Crescentr Fixi to Alstare as Alstare had Factory backing before and a lot of their materials last year and data. Crescent came in, essentially empty handed. With NO factory support...

The critisism about Crescent which is working hand in hand with YOSH , multi winner in USA, is easy to understand. As you may remember alstare, got factory support only until beginning of 2010, when pocket rocket finished 2nd. and after with the italian ex factory ducati rider, alstare - without any support - had done better results than crescent until now. Those are facts ....not subjective thoughts.

I think that Camier wasn't the best choice for the suzuki team ...seeing his results with Aprilia. He isn't able to give any tecnical advices to help the team. And unfortunately Hopper had severall crashes and no chance to get any good results. A pitty for suzuki to be the last manufacturer in the wsbk...this isn't a positive image. But still some chance to do better, hope so but will be difficult ..
