Nicky has got to be the smoothest guy on the track these days, BTW Rossi is pretty solid himself. Honda has got to be grinning BIG TIME!

True but E. Bos is riding at the top of his game & outriding the dated Kaw for sure. His Monza performance was simply outstanding to boot.

I was lucky enough to see the race in person. Eric Bostrom is absolutly amazing. Could anyone else even keep within sight of the leader on that old 7R? It would be interesting to see the results of an IROC type race on cycles.I think he could take Nicky on the same equipment.

Yeah, Eric needs a better bike. Get that man on a twin. Maybe Aprilia would like to start an AMA team. Or a second WSB rider (are you listening Aprilia!). Honda needs to take Nicky overseas.



I hope Nicky and Eric ride in the WSB races at Laguna Seca this year!

They have already slated Eric to ride at Laguna, and since the next AMA SBK races are two weeks after 'Guna, most teams are fielding atleast one rider in the WSB races. It's going to be great.

EBoz was most impressive. The onboard camera shots from Hayden's machine were astounding--Bostrom was leaving his braking WAY late!

You know Bostrom and Hayden are awsome riders but what about that Andrew Deathrige or whatever his name is. That guy has jack s h i t for support. He does 99% of his own mechanical work. He has three top ten finishes and he even admitted that he can't ride as hard as he would like to because he only has one bike and can't afford to wreck it. Thats who I really respect. The factory riders are all kick butt racers but allot of them wouldn't be were they are without the support they get. Bostrom always whines about the AMA officials not pulling the riders that get lappeed before the mid point of the race off the track but those guys are out there living every race fans dream and the factory riders want to p i s s on their hard work because they don't want to go through the trouble of passing them twice. Well maybe Bostrom should be thankful for that old crappy $100,000 racebike and the backup one and the crew and the tire sponsor and the free gear he gets before he complains about having to pass a guy that is out there scraping by on what little he can get.
