WSBK in action!!! 1st practice of 08

i suspect TB will be the season fav with the new bike and all, after all he's by far the best rider and been the guy in WSBK for yrs now and most likely continue.

I'm under the impression that Haga is going to have a hell of a year after coming in second last year. But you definitely can't count out Biaggi and Bayliss on those oversized Ducati's. I'm also waiting to see what Laconi and Tamada can do on the Kawi.

Laconi is our man, I think he is the only one on a Kawi that can run fast.

i think JT is great WSB rider...will he be so in MotoGp...who knows....but he definitely got more out of the Honda then anyone else was capable of....lots of Honda's on the WSB circuit but only he was consistenly on the podium and thats on a factory supported team like many others...it was covered freq last season the troubles the Ten Kate team was having with the factory TC and went back and forth with an aftermarket brand.....Will the Ten Kate team enjoy the success (double championship) this year...i doubt it...is that because JT will not be there...again who knows...however they end i'm sure it would be better with JT then without....this season is already been awarded to the Duc from the sounds of it.....i don't understand how bayliss could have 7 wins last season and everyone say that the duc is at a disadvantage and needed an extra 100-200cc of displacement...damn i'm looking forward to the races starting..

i don't :headshake. the honda had it over the other bikes so i attribute the success in this area as oppsed to JT. Bayliss is by far been the superior rider in WSBK for yrs now but unfortunately for him the Duc was down on HP and could not keep up despite his efforts to push that bike into places only he could.
Hagasan makes a huge run at the title only to come up 2pts shy so no i don't believe JT is all that.

not taking anything from Haga...always been a big fan but the last few races of the 07 season saw JT lose the front in one race and run completely off the track at the beginning of another race by another rider costing him valueable points...that combined with some very cautious riding on the final race of the season kept the points as close as they were...if he would have won it running away then your best equipment argument might hold up...but the fact the championship ended so closely contested speaks more for JT's talent....as for bayliss being on inferior equipment...i don't buy it...he had 7 race wins in 07 second only to JT's 8 race wins...yes he is a great rider but the duc was not the slouch the pr dept was trying to make it..
