How many more times is Sofuoglu gonna get away with 'dirty riding'? Until he's gonna end up hurting someone? I think someone needs to give him a taste of his own medicine. Would have loved to see Cluzel beat him!

have to wait till tonight to see the replay but have to give props up to Kenan. A man with bucket loads of talent, and making his own fortune by way of his own ability/ambition. Clearly the master of this class, would love to see him on a properly backed R1/ZXR in WSBK, almost have to say hes being wasted in WSS given how consistently better he is over the rest of the field. Just hope he keeps a sharp mind, and keeps on succeeding in what ever he puts his mind to.

Really?? Did you not see his rise to WSB last time??
It was dire to watch a talented lad rubbish himself week in week out...

Or his foray into moto2? Again it was dire to watch a talented lad rubbish himself week in week out...

Face it fella as Kenan has, he can and only ever will be able to ride one bike, a 600 Supersport, he knows it, you know it and every team manager in WSB/MOTO2/GP know it, thats not a critiscm its a fact..

He lost his brother, followed by his other brother, followed by his father over the past 5 years.

The loss of his first brother happened smack at the start of the 08 season which affected him for the remainder of the year as we saw. He was an emotional wreck. He nearly gave up riding, at the end of the season made the switch to WSS and won the Portimao round which was the catalyst for the rest of his career.

Then at the start of the 2011 season which was his inaugural year in Moto2 he lost his father. The results followed suit like they were in 08.

This year he's put the past behind him and was a more focused man concentrating solely at the task on hand.

All being well if he makes the switch to SBK nice year I expect him to perform much better than his 08 outing.

Give him a chance to prove himself next year on a litre bike. If he can't do it then I agree with your statement of him not being able to ride anything larger than a 600. Don't be so quick to judge

I think 'really' has the problem of believing that the rider is the only part of the equation in racing. Really needs a reality check. How does Kenan go from fighting for wins during wild cards, limited testing/experience to sucking butt the next season after getting plenty of experience ... answer: lack of support (Moto2.) Kenan is outclassing his teammate, lapping him in one of the races, and is destroying PTR's mighty effort, Kenan is the MAN, and he races while observing Ramadan, the man will destroy your ego Really, stay the fu*k off please.

the last bit about Ramadan, Kenan actually eats/drinks regularly the fri/sat/sun so its not that strict, but the rest of the comment stands like General Sherman (big a$$ piece of wood.)
