I think it will be E. Bostrom and Mladin up at the front this season. Mladin looked like his old self at the last race of the season last year. I hope Eric will take it this year though, he's a good guy and for someone to go that fast on a Kwak is pretty amazing. I curious as to why he's still on a 750. I think I read that the rules allow for 750s to be bored out to 800cc. I guess they just want to go with what works, but the bike's weakness has always seemed to be power down the straights. Should be a good race and season. I guess Ben Bostrom is now on the downhill slide of his career which is too bad. I like his style, same with Haga. It's too bad Dunlop wasn't on par with Michelin last year in WSB. I just hope Eric gets a chance at a MotoGP ride. Oh and by the way, I also think Aaron Yates could take it this year (for all of you holding your breath for my opinion).

I think Eric is on a bored out thing I read somewhere else. 800 cc. Still I think Kawa will have the ZX-10 ready by next year.

They are actually trying two different configurations -- both overbored. Eric said that one was definately better than the other but didn't know which was which.

You can never count out Miguel - He had in my opinion the two of the most impressive Daytona wins in 1999 when he won both the Supersport and Superbike races with his leg still battered from the '98 Loudon crash. He was walking the pits on crutches and had to be lifted onto his bikes, but still won both races fer chrissake! That is DETERMINATION.

As much as I hate to say it, Mat Mladin on a gsxr 1000 is going to be tough to beat, if he can keep the tires together.

Go Boz brothers!

Default E Boz best rider!!!

I think E Boz is the best out of all the riders,but Mladin is on a gsxr 1000 so that being said you have to think he is going to be the guy to bet this year.

I don't really like Mladin, but if they can manage tire wear, he will be hard to beat at least at the high-speed tracks like Daytona. My money is still on EBoz for the title, though, and I will be cheering most for GoShow.



Bring on the racing!

Eric and Ben racing together on fairly matched equipement is going to make so of the most exciting racing in motorcycle racing this next season. They're comfortable riding close together, plus you ALWAYS try that much harder when it's you brother! Of course this makes it all the more painful that I can't even get Speed Channel!
