Default Really?

Guess who is third in points? <a href="http://www.superbikeplanet.com/calendar2000/wsc.htm">Team Kate's James Toseland</a?

Yeah, two spots behind the superior V-twin Ducati. Even a world champion cannot get that lemon I4 to run ...

Kpaul, really. You need to pay attention just a little. Running around to Web sites and looking at lists can only tell you so much. Do you forget that a lot of people here actually follow racing week in-and-out, you dolt?



The Hondas were horrible at the last WSBK. Toseland was the most competitive of the Hondas and he was nowhere near the front. The talk of the weekend was how hard the Hondas had it.

Toseland, Barros, etc. all said how uncompetitive they were at that track.



Maybe next race at a different track they'll go better, but they're certainly not at the very front of the pack everywhere, much less dominant.

the list is a lot longer than Rainey if you are NH and grew up dirt-tracking, etc...

You don't think a hay bale in front of a steel pole is the pinnacle of safety?

I would say superior rider and crew, not bike. Look at last year, the GSXR may hav been ahead in the beginning and Corser/his partner were running away. After Corser won the first six races (not sure on the number) then the field started to even out. Others started to win and Vermeulen dominated the second half. With a better setup and with a rider with skills, they were winning. In fact, if Corser hadn't dominated at the beginning of the season, I believe Vermeulen would have won the championship. Toseland was champion a few years ago, not now; maybe he's not comfortable on the honda, bad setup, crew, so on and he is still in third. Ten Kate's hondas are proven, they just need some good riders.
