Not really, even Sykes on the new S1000RR has been faster than him!! I’m thinking he is still not 100% fit yet..

Sorry guys, but Chaz is a dud! Never going to win the title.

Bautista is looking the goods.

Going to be a sensational weekend of racing

Chaz will be a top 5 rider this season, I also believe he will not fight for the championship.. He will win some races, but I believe the rest of the field has caught up to him..

I've been saying for a while that Chaz wasn't going to be able to win a title.

if J Rea was riding the ducati for the past 7 years - the V4 would still be on the drawing board .

- ducati would have been restricted

- the general consensus among the mob would be that the ducati was a L2 cheater configuration which gave Johhny Rea the advantage.

don't get me wrong they've been trying to hamstring Rea for a while to slow him down but with no fuching success .

I think Bautista will do better than Chaz & going to cause problems for Rea IMO
Thanks from Riki and carlpretzel
