Shame, he looked seriously quick in pracice on Saturday, I had visions of him getting a top 5 result, maybe even a podium. Just pushing too hard I guess, the good grid position raised expectations and he's ended up over-riding trying to force it to fit.
Cluzel may not be grabbing headlines but he is finishing races and now leading Leon in the points, maybe he needs to be beating his rookie team-mate and not sliding down the road on his arze so much.

"The Biscuit" What a wally you are....of course he is good enough. Were you there?....I was and if there was one criticism it would be he tried TOO hard and the bike bit him back. You should never have a go at someone because of that. How many years has it taken Tom to come good?

I saw leon in the Paddock and he was in good spirits and wanting to put on a show, Leon always does well at home events i recall him at silverstone on the Aprillia again trying to hard whilst up front he crashed out. He in my opinion needs to relax and get some miles under his belt and find the limits both times he crashed he lost the front end. Fair play to him in the second race he jumped back on and went balls out and got into the points he was doing times that the front runners were doing. I hope he picks up a podium it would do wonders for him and Fixi who i think given the budgets of some teams put out a good bike that needs some more money spending on it.

That's probably the worst bike to be on next to the blade. When are Honda and Suzuki gonna take their road bikes seriously?

But seriously, get rid of TC and the lessor teams stand a much better shot at competing. TC, GTFO!

Well there's one thing I'm pleased about with "crasher Camier" I'll get to see more of his crashes, when he's back in British super bikes next year, although not sure he would win there anymore, with the new young guns.
See you next year Leon, back in the UK.
