Last weekend kindof showed the future. AMA to benefit
 
First WSB race, a Bristish Superbike rider beats them all. He wasn't really challenged at all by the WSB regulars. Second race 2 BSB guys beat the regulars. Stick a fork in WSB.



Actually this can make AMA better. Honda, Yamaha, Kawasaki, and Suzuki will concentrate on AMA, MotoGP and other national championships (Japan, British etc). More resources better competition. Bring on AMA Superbike for 2004.

Good point, and it seems they've read your mind, as a lottery system is reportedly going to be in place to give every team/rider equal chances of getting any of the provided tyres.

That BSB rider beat a guy that challenged bayliss at times last year, and bayliss has got on the podium in motogp....they cant be too bad.

Gone, I think, are the days when SBK riders struggled in the premier GP class due to the nature of the 2-strokes that are now gone.
