Congratulations on your 3rd title, you thoroughly deserved it. All the years hard work has paid off and both you your team Kawasaki Lorenzini can now reap the rewards of your collaborative efforts in full.

Good to see you will be staying in supersport for another year and hopefully be able to win your 4th and a 2nd title for Kawasaki.

You said at the start of the year you'd be staying in supersport for 2 years so it's only natural for you to honor your word and chase the 4th title in 2013. It's your life and we can only respect whatever decision you make and support you in anyway possible.

You're last super bike adventure was over 5 years ago and a lot has changed between now and then both with you and your family. You look a much determined man this year and I wish you the best in your future endeavors.

I also couldn't watch the race as I didnt know which channel it was on but following on wsbk it seemed like it was very exciting with the front 5 constantly overtaking oneanother.

If he stays further in wss, he'll be a good yardstick for up and coming riders but that's pretty much it really. He has the talent to make it happen in WSBK. He just needs the bike/team. Come on Kenan move to superbikes and do us proud.

re: "And please I hope no one starts any motogp talk about him cause that would be dumb."

i wonder if former WSS'ers cal and gene (who've only ever won a single WSS title between them) think it's dumb...?
