WSBK Starts in 57 days: Predictions?

Well season is not much finished and we start it up again in another 57 days for the 1st race in Phillip Island...
SO we have some more riders on board so who are you thinking is going to lead the way?
We'll say 1-5?

1. James Toseland or 2nd,,,, swapped with Biaggi Very hard to say
2. Max Biaggi
3. Haga--going to contest from the get go, but he is known for choking (and not being able to do math)
4. Fabrizio
5. chris vermulean

Johhny Rhea is my darkhorse, he could very well win it all as well.
Vermulean will podium at one of the races (home track)...best we have had since the 90's.

I think biaggi will win first simply because he did so well on a first year bike and now with more r and d it should be even better. But I'm hoping a kawasaki takes it.

While it'd be great to see a green bike on top, sadly there's little chance of consistency from the word go.

My money is on Jonny Rea - he's a massive talent, second year on the same bike in an established team, and they'll now be getting the Ohlins suspension dialled in.

Cheers,
Brian

Just piss off and leave me alone.

Haga, Frabitz, and Crutchlow, Toseland. This could go on and on but thats what I think.

If Haga's heart is in it he will be great again, im interested to see how crutchlow makes the transition to the big bike. Its gonna be interesting for sure, last year WSBK was the series to watch i hope it is just as good or better.

Here is what I think...

The main candidates for tiltle will be : Haga ,Fabrizio and Toseland ...

Nori was constant from the first race last season and it was one of the best seasons for him.. this year he is on the bike that he knows very good and has found setup's for all the track's (except Portimao).. His biggest problem is his team mate Fabrizio.. The little italian guy is performing better and better as the season goes on..
Toseland could be on the top but i'm not sure ...Why ? He is on a new bike ,the one that Ben took to win the crown but Sykes could'nt do not anything with it.. And if you look at JT's career he is two times world champ but with only 16 wins total, and last title he won by two points differenc to Nori.. That season Nori woke up mid season and lost by two points.."took double at Magny Course" last round..

Kawi will be at top ten and for sure score few podiums maybe some win too..Hope so.

Can wait for the season to begin...

Best mix of riders for a long time, I agree with greenman43, Johnny Rea could be the dark horse. Saw him here in Perth in November in a local competition, awesome to see this guy go on a standard CBR1000 on a track he had not seen before & get within 0.2sec of lap record. In a fairly respectable field he was outstanding,

Its time for HAGA to show the FUCK up. He's been sooooooo very close for several years and never has been able to close it out !!!! Hope he gets the Title this year because he deserves it....
