I just hope its better than last years snooze fest,used to be my favourite class a few years back when Bayliss,Haga and Toseland were racing.

Jonny Rea looks a good shout but he does seem to like the odd high speed get off though so staying injury free is paramount.

Checa should win though

Superpole cancelled after death in support race. rea starts p8, sykes pole

Gutted, backed Checa to win the first race at 15/8, he was in front when he high sided and was thrown through the air like a rag doll. I thought, no way at his age is that not gonna hurt, so was reticent about backing him in Race 2...doh !

Checa is 11/4 with Lads. and P P. It looks a massive rick to me, should do the double this weekend.
Report Zazu May 16, 2012 4:16 PM BST
no way id be backing at 11/4. He might double at miller but that still won't be enough imo. he'll get killed at the fast circuits this year. 2bmws, a kawasaki, at least one aprillia and a honda taking points off him

he's currently on 97.5 points - last year from the same rounds he accumulated 186 (inc 13 from monza)
Report Shalimah May 16, 2012 11:52 PM BST
Fair points Zazu but he did win the championship last year by about 100 points from the works Yam. of melandri ( no works Yams this year and a further 100 pts back to Max in 3rd ( tbf Max missed 5 races) .
If he was on 186 pts at this stage last year it means he scored another 319 pts in the races yet to come including
doubles at the next 2 rounds.

The opposition.

Sykes  cosistently fast in qualy and early part of race, consistently loses places as race progresses, too hard on rubber.

Melandri Top class rider on extremely quick bike that looks to have made a step forward this year however BMW only just gained one win so far (should have been 2 on Sunday) they also struggle with tyres late in race at some tracks

Haslam  as above

Rea top class rider. riding the nuts off an ageing honda that is not up to winning the championship

Max  Max is a one off, is he as good as he was even last year, i am not sure. Is the bike any better than last year when it was not good enough, i dont think so.

Checa wiil be short Fav. at Miller and Miasano. barring mishaps i think he will be nearer evens for the championship after the next two rounds.

Right or wrong i have played larger than normal.
Report Zazu May 17, 2012 6:32 AM BST
BMW looks awesome at the minute. only 1 win but should have double 1-2 at donnington, assen was wet and monza wet/cancelled when they had dominated dry practice

philip island and imola are perfect for ducati. he might win the next 4 races but i think miller and esp misano will be more competitive this year. plus it might be bad weather etc

if he is evens after them ill be having a huge bet on someone else considering next up are aragon and brno!

last year if it was a bad circuit for aprillia/ducati theyd still finish on podium. This year theyll be losing much bigger points becasue of the competitiveness of championship.
Report Zazu May 17, 2012 6:40 AM BST
ps if i had to name the championship winner id probably go with checa. but only just so dont think 11/4 is particularly big

max wins just as melandris tyre went off in the last few laps,i thought with the cooler conditions today it may have lasted,although there was lots of chances to trade out of the starting position a ridiculously low odds on marco at times.

Never seen a race like Race 1 before, the number of lines the riders were using was incredible.
Had a good day in the end. Melandri and Byrne were easy to back. Was surprised by Baz in race 1 and Sykes in race 2. I backed Melandri in running at 4/6 in race 2 (thought it was a barmy price he was 2nd with Sykes in front) Sykes rode a blinder and made me sweat !
Report Pounf August 2, 2012 1:32 AM BST
Silverstone this weekend, looking forward to it. Can Sykesy transfer his one lap pace to race pace, came a bit closer last time. Checa did the double last year, Melandri is on fire, and the other home riders wont leave anything behind. The only guy I dont fancy is Biaggi, I get the feeling finishing near the top without risk rather than at the top with risk could be his strategy.
Will wait for the prices before having a bet
