    Wsbk 2019

    Since we do not seem to have a thread..

    We MAY have a good season coming up judging by race 1.

    Fuck I was stoked yesterday, except for Haslam. Thought he was gonna do great now he has a decent factory ride.
    Instead he does exactly what fucked Davies from the get go last year.
    Polemic....look it up

    Bloody hell, J Rea making stupid piss weak coments again, going on about saying he was riding at 60% the rest of the field must have been to then, he can't handle being beaten, what racer rides at 60%.
    About time Bautista got a decent ride under his arse, what a win.

    It doesn't show on the Internet programme guide, but it is on the programme guide on your TV. It's one of the pop-up channels.

    Yeah, what was all that crap about making the rear tyre last the race being the main goal?

    I did have a quiet laugh before the race when the commentators were talking about what it would take for different riders to win. No one mentioned the obvious for Rea.

    Before the race the pundits acknowledged that Bautista was fastest but wondered if his tyres would last race distance. The commentators kept referring to that during the race - but Bautista just kept increasing his lead. Fifteen seconds worth! Rea is not used to that treatment.

    Tyres are a concern at Phillip Island though, thus the compulsory tyre change in the SSP race. Unlike MotoGP these guys only have the one bike IIRC, so the pit crews will really earn their pay today.

    That was the best WSBK weekend I have seen for years, if only for what it may mean for the rest of the season. If you do not know the results look away.....














    HA HA - No spoilers here...

    Could Rea finally have some real opposition? If Alvaro and the Duc are not competitive at some tracks then Haslam should be and a swarm of Yamahas not too far behind.

    The commentators annoyed me a bit with their repeated postulating: was it Bautista being a PI specialist, was it the power of the Ducati, or just possibly it was his ability?

    Phillip Island is known as a track that favours the brave and minimises a horsepower disadvantage.

    OK, Bautista was out in front on his own, but the rest of the guys on the same equipment weren't out there with him, they were back in the field. Unlike the Kawasakis who looked to be joined at the hip.

    Bautista was good on 125s and 250s but he never really had top kit in MotoGP, now that he seems to have a competitive bike we just might get to see how good he can be.

    He might not have the same advantage, whatever it was, on other tracks but at least we should be spared a succession of Rea led processions.

    The bosses back in Bologna will be pleased with their new V4 anyway. Prosecco all round?

    Now we know why Ducati wanted Bautista in WSBK. Shit, those V4's are quick with someone who knows how to ride them onboard. He was running MotoGP pace for the first few laps. Probably not worrying about losing the front into Turn 1 helps.

    I often wish the Comms would just back it off a bit pritch. The constant flapping pisses me off too.
    (hey we're experts too and can see whats what ? )

    Yes ,he was good on the two smaller classes 125,250 ! I sat and had a good chat one year to his Trainer.
    LOL , he was the one that reckoned Horhay was a bit 'Thick' !! ,

    Wait till we've had couple of races, I agree.
