Rea's been the top WSBK rider so far this year. The bike has barely had any upgrades in recent years beyond the fly-by-wire throttle, yet he and the Ten Kate team are beating much newer machinery from much-better funded Kawasaki, BMW and Ducati teams. He destroyed Xaus in their two years together and had the better of Checa and Kiyonari when they were team-mates, so he'd already proved that he's no mug - but he's still made a massive improvement this year. In a just world he'd get a MotoGP opportunity, or at least a truly committed WSBK factory ride.
