Googly-ah-no is the one who is a wildcard, he has never won a SBK race but he's definitely fast and a showman and he's Italian too like Canepa, but is a more recent Superstock champion than Canepa (2011 vs. 2007) and the 3 past years in SBK with better results each year. I'd say if Canepa ever finishes a race in front of Chaz or Julie-anno (other than a crash) it's all over for that rider!

P.S. - But I agree that Canepa's YouTube videos are awesome!
+1 - I love watching Canepa. He's like my road version of Jason Anderson.

Didn't they give the 1199 a break this season? I recall reading something about forcing them to put restrictors on it last year, which hurt speed. Then there we talks about removing them, which would make the bike competitive.

That would explain improved Results in wsbk. The 1199 always did ok in superstock. So I bought one )

Canepa is great, but I was a much bigger La Marra fan. I imagine he was favored for the EVO ride until his injury. His return to racing is still up in the air but it's difficult to imagine he'll ever return to his former state if he does return.

They quietly removed those restrictors a few rounds into last season actually.

+1 - I didn't mean to discount him, but figured he would be out possibly permanently. Between that and Alessia I really, really feel bad for the dude.

Is it just me, or is he not using the clutch on downshifts? Thought you had to use factory electronics in Superstock?

I like Canepa becuase he certainly has the skills and his few guest rides on the 1199 SBK bike were some of the best results of the year in dry conditions.

Maybe I'm biased by his YouTube videos:

Def right about that this guy had talent and was very entertaining ... Reminds me of Ben spies when he won wsbk very quick and rough he wasn't smooth just elbows everywhere

Looks like he's using the clutch, you can see his left hand moving back and forth. Yes Superstock has to use homologated software, and as far as I know the Ducati Corse Superstock kit does not have a 2-way strain sensor and downshift blipper built-in like the Superbike does.

I agree I see his left hand manipulating the clutch at least on some downshifts.

In the new Cycle News, Alan Cathcart has a test-ridden review of the Panigale RS13 SBK and 1199R STK machines. He compares them to each other and also to Sykes' ZX-10R SBK he rode the day before. Very good information that dovetails with what you've already noted Jarel. He also mentions that neither of the machines have auto-blipping software for downshifts.

That was an interesting read on the RS13. Cathcart's been around forever and has ridden everything with wheels, including most all of the MotoGP and SBK rides of recent years. And yet he thought highly of the Pani's chassis, which most people were so focused on after the MotoGP debacle. Virtually all of his negative comments were on the power and its delivery, which mirror Checa's comments pretty closely. Imagine if he'd ridden it with the restrictors still in!

Here's hoping the '14 and '15 regs suit the bike better - bring on the racing!
