as usual kenan is the strongest candidate for the tittle. May he was not good on sbk or moto 2 but everyone has to respect that he is the best on supersport

he almost won races on Moto2 and nobody has amounted to much of anything on the Honda in SBK less the pilots who have been there for a long time.

Sofuoglu is the real deal, and if he gets a chance at a good bike in SBK he can make it happen, but its all about money, sponsorship and which way the control tire wind is blowing. People who knock Sofuoglu for being a poor SBK or GP rider are ignorant and have no idea what they are talking about.

Both Kenan and Sam deserved the win.
They fought almost until the very last lap, so cheers to them for providing a good show for the fans, without any controversy.
Just good riding.

As expected Kenan managed his pace a little better than Sam, but I think the Kid is improving, and he will sooner or later be able to control his tyres a bit better. Add to that that fast R6, and then he can have a shot at the title with Sofuoglu.

prof-x you are absolutely right. obviously kenan can do moto 2 easily and he proved that on his wildcard races. he was 7sec faster then 2nd rider on total but after that tyre problem happened and handlebar problem too, he couldn't win but he showed that he can do that. i think that if he can get competitive bike on SBK (like rsv4 or zx10r) he will show all that blamers will get muted.

Great race, congratulations to the champion Kenan. Great tussle with Sam. But on the last few laps the champion pulled the pin and started churning out lap record after lap record.
