Byrne to meet with Althea

Althea Ducati will work with Shane Byrne in an attempt to help his form recover over the second half of the season
Shane Byrne will undergo a meeting with Althea Ducati's technical team in an effort to improve his form following another difficult weekend at Kyalami.

The former British Superbike champion finished outside the top ten in both races, well adrift of team-mate Carlos Checa who stood on the podium.

Indeed, Byrne, who has a best finish of sixth so far this season, has failed to match Phillip Island race winner Carlos Checa for the most part and is now languishing down in 12th position in the standings – Checa is currently joint third.

Despite his lack of recent form, Althea team boss Genesio Bevilacqua is committed to helping Byrne out of his 'dark period'

“We will have a technical meeting with regard to Shane in order to help him out of this dark period,” the Althea press release simply said.

From reading the comments on here, it seems the Shakey fan base that said he would wipe the floor with Checa are a little pissed. Since thier pre-season predictions are not true, the fans are now making up excuse after excuse. Now his team cannot communicate with Shakey. Shakey is getting the shaft because Bayliss wants to come back. Thier bikes are not the same. Checa has more experience. I would love to see Shakey do well. I appreciate his fans that stick by him no matter what however, you're excuses are some of the worst I have ever seen. He's sucking hind tit this year, deal with it.
