Can't wait for the season to start.

I have spent the last two weeks watching last years WSS races recorded on the DVR. That will be an exciting season as well.

How do you think Crutchlow will fair in SBK this year? You picking Rea to win it this year?

Didn't quite get it all in before I couldn't edit anymore (had to look up how to spell neukirchner!)


Hopefully Neukirchner will stay healthy all season. That will be a of a team for Honda this year.

I am kind of routing for Haga this year also, but don't think he will have what it takes. I think last year was his best shot, and Spies took it from him!

Cal has ridden a superbike before (2008 BSB HRC Honda) and was pretty sensational.
Give him a few races and he'll be right up there.
Watch for sparks between him and Haslam

Yup my money is on JR
how about you??

I dunno,
when a rider comes in out of the blue and rewrites the record books in the way Ben did it it's hard for me to write Haga off.
Of course Ducati will get some advantage this year if things start to go sour, maybe we'll see them running 1300cc, or another 10 kg lighter

I think Rea will be up there, and will have quite a few round wins. I am not sure if he has the consistency to pull off and overall championship though. There is no doubt he is fast, and it is fun to watch him ride that Honda slideways.

I think if Neukirchner is healthy, and can adapt to the Honda, he stands a good chance of winning the overall.

I agree, it is hard to count Haga out, and you want to see him win the title. I just think it will be another heartbreaker of a season for him. He will be in the top three, but don't think he will win the overall.

With Ben gone JR is the coolest head out there
With Ohlins under him now and the focus of the team he will take some stopping imo
ff to 5.20 on the video, that's Cool Hand Luke right there
Go Johnny Go

Max N is a quality act on his day but with his luck I can't see him being a threat for the championship. Blows a little too hot and cold for me.
However if he duffs up Fabrizio that'll be good by me

Roll on Race 1

Biaggi will be hard to deal with on the Aprilla. Nori, for the championship.. hopfully a Honda Yamaha, and Suzuki slug fest for a box spot every round.

Ducati had 2 of the top 3 bikes, and 4 bikes in the top 10. If Ducati gets yet another advantage................I'm going to completely discount world superbike as a legitimate series.
