Amazing Alvaro
« on: 17 March 2019, 08:51:14 PM »
Wow! 6 out of 6,I am a big big fan of Johny Rea,but what a performance from Bautista! he not only won all his races,he demolished the field.You could argue he's got the perfect package from the off but even so he's not the only rider on a V4 Ducati,maybe after all there is a major difference in ability from Moto GP even down field.We'll see what happens when they come to Europe,it may be a speed differential as Rea,Lowes,etc are saying,but if it ain't we could be looking at the biggest whitewash since all the factories pulled out and left Agostini to breeze away to a few unchallenged world titles. :eek

I tend to think it's down to Bautista.
Did you see the way he was sliding the back into the corners!!
They reckon the Honda is quicker in a straight line than the Duke this year as well, so even more evidence in his favour.
Like you said, the other Dukes were well beaten.

How do you race a bike that can overtake you every time you hit a straight.  Even in Assen it was killing Rea at every time it could get on the centre of the tyre,  even if it was for about 100 metres?  My best comparison would be Pedrosa and what he could do with the Honda.

Hi folks.
Please excuse my confused comments above - got my WSBK machines mixed up with MotoGP ones.


I do think Bautista's amazing start to the season is largely down to him and his skills but obviously the Hondas are nowhere at the moment and don't have anywhere near as much power as the Dukes.
A real shame for Camier as I think he is a talented rider too.


I am also looking forward to seeing what Sykes does on the BMW when they get their power shortage sorted too  :)

Yep,put Camier on a really competitive bike and I think he would surprise a lot of people,was surprised to see Sykes's team mate doing the business on that BMW,like you say get the power diff sorted and there's going to be some right battles for the podium,I still think it'll be Rea and Bautista at the sharp end though.Also hope Lowes gets the better of Van De Mark by the end of the season.

If Honda had stayed with Ten Kate, Camier would have been more competitive.
