Hasn't been a brilliant year for Leon since Donnington.

He threw away the first race at Assen too- if only he'd seen his pitboard..

Might as well go for win it or bin it in France I reckon. Try a few block passes on Melandri.

does he get to practice on the CBRs at his dads race school? they only use Hondas there!!

but next year they will have some technical help from HRC so I am expecting a better performance from both riders. The HRC bikes at Suzuka 8 hours are incredible, hope next year they are up to top spec aswell in WSBK

Nearly everybody downturns the fireblade but really it's not that bad,Rea doing agood job,Lowes doing a good job they are at the top.I suppose now that Hill and Haga are not doing so good the Yamahas are rubbish too.Good luck to Leon next year hope his new family hasnt slowed him any.

With absolutely no chance of the title, and no reason to impress his current employers, Leon's main focus ought to be avoiding injury and logically he should aim for an easy finish. But he won't... He'll be wanting to put some manners on Melandi.

Well he owes Biaggi and Melandri a couple of hard passes and knocks it might still work out for Sykes....
He's had a couple of difficult seasons with injuries, bike failure, brain failure from him and others around him. I don't think he's a spent force just yet though.
With Ten-kate and Honda next year and a good lad as a team mate think it will reignite him. And if the series owners start dumming down the bike specs chances are Honda will get it right sooner than the others.

You guys always on at MM MB or anyone not English, personally I think if he owes anyone anything it Rea but your nationalistic view on everything stops you from seeing the obvious.

Also he hasn't done anything other than being rocket Rons son to deserve these top team rides he keeps getting.

Give the rides to someone young with talent rather than journeyman with cash.
