Bad Baz

Didn't Baz pass Sykes and take the 2 or 3 points that would have won Sykes the championship?

i just thought all the pieces fit together right now. Dorna outwardly seeking top GP talents to compete in sbk, Dani being super coy about what he's doing next, Sykes hasnt finalized a new deal and there seems to be no immediate urgency from kawk to re-sign him. Also, the way Dani worded his announcement sounded like he is still going to race, just not in motogp.

OK, I'm putting this on equal weight with the possibility of Rossi going to Guandalini Yamaha.

I've only seen Rea's comments about wanting GP riders in sbk. But nothing from DORNA directly.

I just came back here to gloat and remind all the Dani haters when me and two other people on CRC always said Dani deserves his seat and he will retire as a Honda rider.

I believe one race weekend he beat Tom against KRT orders, and then passed him the other race, then waited for him on last lap so Tom could pass him and get more points.

It was Rea that slowed up at Losail at the end of 2016 to let Sykes finish 2nd in race 2 and claim 2nd place in the championship.

Baz arguably cost Sykes the championship in 2014 by holding off Sykes for 2nd place in race 1 at the season finale at Losail. IMO, The bigger issue in 2014 was Baz attempting a never-going-to-happen pass at Sepang which took out Sykes and left Sykes with an injured hand for several races.

I love talking WSBK in these GP threads.

I popped into the thread yesterday and saw that there was already a vote cast for Tito, again!

Where is my secret admirer?

Well there's a new camera view debut in Moto2 at about the 33ish minute mark of FP1. I like it very much and it should make many of you grumpy slugs happy.

edit: 17:15 min mark of video.

MotoGP FP2 - 18 riders within one second of fastest time.

Moto2 FP2 - 28 riders within one second of fastest time.

Moto3 FP2 - 18 riders within one second of fastest time.

Obviously, the short track length (2.28 miles) can contribute to closer lap times but thats a lot of people turning pretty close times.
