Thanks Crash. Nice to see some quality journalism with your interview of Eugene and story on Chaz. Both of these guys are true riders and gentlemen. Pleasure to have met and chatted to both.

Would be great if Crash did a quality story on a different rider each week (not just the British / Irish guys), and let some of our lounge chair racers know the full story behind some of these riders. might stop them being d*ckheads (as Eugene calls them) and have them understand that if a rider does tell it like it is he is not making excuses!
Have a good weekend at Imola Norge - see you at S'stone.

No doubt in my mind of the quality of Chaz and his speed and potential. I'd say his points about set-up time and having no data are valid and not excuses - he's proved already that he has the speed, consistency and commitment to beat the best.

A decent run of weekend weather will help him show his true potential. Having said that, I'm sure that next if the bike was the same next season and he had a set-up start point his results would be even better.

Big question is what Dorna will do to actually ferk WSBK up into a non-competitive techno p1ss1ng contest like its managed to do with MotoGP. Already involving Mfrs in the decision-making-process and going the limited engine route suggests that Dorna are going to make a right mess of WSBK using a model that is ruining the racing in MGP.

I have little faith in Dorna to manage WSBK responsibly and in the best interests of the sport. Dare say Ezpeleta's bank-balance will be great though.
