This Years BSB Superbike rider line up looks superb

Post#1 » Thu Jan 19, 2017 3:47 am

being close to brands hatch i take a keen interest in the bsb as they visit brands 3 times, so i like to ride up there for these meets, when looking at this years line up and checking the prices for going i noticed firstly MSV have changed the ticket ages, it used to be up to 13 years old for FREE it still is but there is a new catagory of 13 to 15 year olds which are lower price than adult which is good for me 14 year old.

any way the line up

the nutter from world superbikes DAVIDE GIUGLIANO is riding for tyco bmw

josh brookes is also back on a favoured anvil tag yamaha

James ellison moves to mcam Yamaha after the split from JG Speedfit Kawasaki which is great for him, as he will do better with out leon haslam in his face, and on the Yamaha which will suit him

an and jason still on the Honda... A New Honda for this year... so will be exciting for them

SYLVAIN GUINTOLI from world superbikes is back and on the bennetts suzuki and got wee taz ..TAYLOR MACKENZIE stepping up as a rooky to bsb

so only 4 kawasaki`s this year i thinks and 3 ducattis and 5 bmw`s 2 hondas and 2 suzuki`s and 5 yamahas there abouts its not going to be a two horse race this year me thinks :D
I cant seem to remember.. I don't know where I'm going, but I'm on my way.

I Likes the BSB and a Friday or Saturday at Brands for a mooch about with a pic nik... Used to go Friday as it was FREE!

Don't follow a particular rider in BSB WSB or Moto GB, although prefer some than others... but like a good clean race.
Used to like Nori Haga and a lot of the Japanesse riders approach and demener, Akira Yanagawa in WSB, YukioKagayama in BSB - they came across as getting such pleasure in racing... I do like Sylvan Guintoli, remember he got taken out big style by Josh Brookes at Donnington... piss poor move by Brookes....
And the Rossi / Marquez episode was dispicable - Rossi should of been black flagged there and then...

A lot of the latest BSB is moan moan moan - could of - should of - would of... Ellison, Brookes etc - Now more of a business than a sport...
They are all so confident we have a great bike, should hit the ground running, better than last year, glad to be back - all hype and over optimism...

Scrap the Showdown format go back to proper racing and proper points...

agree there with the showdown , brands triple header last race of season was all stop and go, and its too late in year, unpredictable weather. was cold that day.
just think this year it going to be closer racing, instead of haslam and skakey the yamaha`s and new honda should be strong.
i hope chas davis does well this year, to watch him slide the front into the corners was stagggering, and not tuck it, mellandri will be his sidekick................
Eugene Laverty is on the aprillia in wsb leaving motogp behind i hope he does well
bradley smith on ktm in motogp great stuff...
I cant seem to remember.. I don't know where I'm going, but I'm on my way.
