There are a handful of riders out but I am not convinced that this would affect Toni's position. Leon Camier, Baz and Rea may have been in front but that is not a sure thing because Haslam is back there and the Honda is touchy and Camier had never ridden Istanbul Park. Davies is behind Toni and he has been on form! Baz has been good too but not wholly consistent in qualifying although better in races.
I think the dude will do well but time will tell if he has it to win it!! Next year will be interesting. For the first time on the bike this is not bad at all!!

Toni has 3 other more well supported Aprillias in front of himself, not even counting the BMWs and Kawasakis. If he finishes in the top 10 in both races that will be quite the achievement imo, especially at a track nobodies been to in quite a while.

It's GRRRRRRREAT to see Toni doing somewhat well in WSBK.

just goes to prove that motogp rejects are better than most of the wsbk riders and people go on about how great wsbk is yeah it looks like it.
bayliss did little in motogp goes back the wsbk and wins title.
tosland does little in motogp goes back to wsbk and wins title.
checa does little in motgp goes to wsbk wins title.
baggi cant get a ride in motogp goes to wsbk and wins titles.
now someone that cant even finish in the top 20 in moto 2 and his first ride on a wsbk his is 5th fastest.
these are the facts

Toseland goes back to WSBK and wins title, thats a good one, you must be one of those slider guys from an alternative universe.

Lets be fair though, Toseland when on it, was a bad dude, and lets be fair, the control tire and political tensities at Tech3 just didnt help him any. I am sure making Rossi look like a fool at Phillip Island didnt help his case though :)

Wish he was still racing, wish he and Cal had gotten a more competitive R1 in 2009, things might be different.

It's been sad to see Tony's performance fade over the last few years but it's fantastic to see how he has hung in there and may very well have a chance to enjoy his racing once again and enjoy the view from the podium once again. I say good luck to him and the more the merrier! :-D
