Sylvain is doing a great job of damage limitation while riding with the after effects of that dislocated collar bone. It's consistency that wins championships, and unlike one or two of his competitors who flash hot and cold, he's always in the mix and racking up the points. Smart rider.

Would like to see him challenge for wins again though when the injury has healed.

Guinters is the real package for me - has been for some time, just never got the package to prove it till now. fast, consistent, measured, controlled - always in the mix and seems to ride within his and the bike's limits while still running near the front. Even injured he's been solid if not spectacular.

Now more & more people are now starting to see the quality Guintoli has. Even his overtakes look planned and meticulously executed - no lairy lunges, more clean and decisive stuff. he doesn't seem to be as hard on the bike as Laverty either, and as the Aprilia looks to be a touch fragile that can only be a benefit as well.

He's even a good guy and likeable off track as well and interviews well. SG is the guy to beat in 2013 for sure, and I bet Gigi is over the moon with his replacement for Max Biaggi.

ya,he ran Camier way off line,i'm pretty sure.sure Guintoli is measured and controlled and consistant most of the time,but i think the racing would be pretty boring if they all took that approach.i'd rather the wsbk champ to be a bit more ballsy myself.
