I like Baz but I want to see someone riding that zx10r who is competitive in dry conditions. The bike is up there but Baz is not, maeby he needs season or two more under his belt, but i want some results today...

It does not matter that he did not get pole the chance of a four cylinder machine having a tyre that will last the race is pretty remote The Pirelli tyres will work fine for the Ducati but will be totally shagged by 3/4 race distance for the four cylinder bikes its the duati getout cause in WSBK.

Loris is getting his feet wet further. Sykes seems focused and
Dialed in for race pace only. Im excited to see the outcome after PI. 4th and 11th... Not too shabby.

Team Green!

Sykes got robbed in last year's championship, happy as I was for Biaggi to be able to go out on top.

Unfortunately the other teams have stepped up pretty significantly and I'm not sure the Kawi has it to keep Sykes at the head of the chase this year. Can't fault his riding for sure but there's a lot of deserving lads who seem in with a shout after testing.

Ultimately this promises to be one heckuva season for all us watching from our armchairs.

I tell you that Tom fail to get the podium only Because Ducati has advantages this year, like i had say before, when Ducati lunch one new bike is for Win is part of the game here, also Checa is keep quited for nobody complain about but waas a very fast time and there sped on straight is much better now.. Anyway all bet that if Tom was 100% he could be closer here he could have done better.. Anyway is not 100% if he bring one podium will be a great start
