It seems a shame that Michelin is so far ahead right now versus Dunlop. Maybe Bostrom should switch?...

I can't imagine it would be a simple as switching. Bostrom's teams, as well as Haga's, are saddled with the Dunlops for the time being. Their only option is to develop the Dunlops.



Also, it was the switch from Bostrom's "beloved" Dunlops in Y2K that almost did his SBK career in. I am not so sure that Bostrom would endorse any switch.

According to Edwards, Bostrom's troubles are his Dunlops. I'm sure his motivation has waned along with the grip from his tires. Shame really - because Xaus obviously isn't a match for Bayliss. I'd like to see someone else join the "Troy and Colin World Tour". Come on, Dunlop - cough up the goods so Ben and Nori can play in the big show.



See ya'll at Laguna - turn 9 camping, yeehaa

I agree, BBoz said he had too much trouble coming to grips (pardon the pun) with the Michellins. It may have been just one too many changes to adapt to when he went to WSB, and needed something familiar for a baseline.
