Got a good feeling about Alex Lowes. Certainly in testing he was a fair bit quicker than Laverty and I suspect hes going to be challenging for podiums from the offset. Good luck to him.

Tomco any bike Laverty has ridden yet he has had success on it. The fact is at the test in Spain Laverty's bike seized and then he had major electrical problems so did not have a 'true' run of things. I think once the series starts it will be a different story. Track experience and series experience will be major factors as will the fact Laverty is a class act with several wins under his belt. The other fact is you said because he was 'faster' than Laverty in the test in Spain he would most likely be challenging for podiums from the start - is that not saying he's going to be a title contenter !!!! If your at the front of the field your challenging for the title!!!

You are missing my point Bigphil. The fact that he was quicker than Laverty (whom I am a big fan of) does not mean he will beat him in the season long title, it merely means (to me anyway) that he is on the pace. Thats all.

I'm a huge Laverty fan, and I can't wait to see both of them race, but testing is testing. Only the team know what way the bikes were set up. Full tanks,empty tanks, hard tyres, soft tyres, Traction control wound full, or no TC at all? New parts on one, old parts on the other. That's why it's called testing. There could be a world of differance in the two bikes. If they run up near the front at all in the first couple of races they will be doing well.

Lowes is the real deal and will push his more seasoned teammate. Laverty has track knowledge to his advantage for sure. Other than that, both of the Lowes bro's have that "it" factor, no doubt.

I sure hope the gixxers can challenge for wins. Great looking bikes with their big tail sections and great lines. You'd think Suzuki would want to return to prominence with their once dominant GSXR line.
