I don't really follow bike racing but this seems... surprising.

Yes he is not alone as several bike racers have been like that for years, also I remember that there used to be a riders age cut off point on a licence for racing motorcycles in the UK and the applicants used to take a few years off their birth year when applying initially.
I don't know if there is still an age limit ?

The rumour mill keeps turning, following a double win at Navarra along with 2nd in the third race, Scott Redding has officially announced his departure for the BMW squad for next year leaving Tom Sykes without a ride although there is a strong suspicion that he and Chas Davies will be heading up the Honda team next year. The points table has Toprak and J Rea level and Scott R just 38 points adfrift, if Redding's run of form continues we could have 3 way battle at the top.

I thought Scott rode fantastically well at Navarra, talk about digging deep. Overall, the racing has been really good this year but I'm beginning to wonder if the works Kawasaki in the hands of Rea at least is now at its limit. Time for a review of this perhaps:

https://www.worldsbk.com/en/news/202...eason+unveiled

It's interesting to hear the criticism of the performance of the second riders at the Kawasaki and Ducati works teams but maybe their performances (compared to their leading team mates) are a truer reflection of where the bikes actually are i.e. they are difficult to ride and stay on for mere mortals. If you want to extract a Rea or Redding speed out, you need to be a bit special and even then it goes wrong sometimes. Safer to collect the points for the manufacturers title than push and fall trying to keep up with the top trio and fall off.

Bautusta has been embarrassingly garbage since getting on the Honda, he took a big pay cheque to go there and has been pathetic in my eyes, and is now cap in hand back to where he came, damn shame as I liked him in his GP career, but in typical ex GP rider fashion he thinks he is something special, which he was for about half a season, then the money came and he became rubbish.

Shows a lot about his personality sadly.

Alvaro has lost the plot. A couple of years ago he looked like he was on the way to the title, then mid season he threw away a nice healthy lead and Rea was able to cruise to another title

Well, I'm not sure about Rea cruising to another title that year, I would say he and his team worked hard to reclaim the title from a seemingly impossible position. If they had just given up, I daresay the gap Alvaro built up may have been insurmountable despite his mid-season woes.

Was a great weekend of racing between Toprak and Johnny, what a shame Kawasaki had to make a protest against Toprak for what was a very minor infringement. Left a sour taste in the mouth

Superbike race 2 is a must watch! As you say, shame about the politics post-race. Not at all classy. Why do some teams management resort to this sort of tactic, it diminishes them but then I guess they don't care.

I thought Denning's response to the protest and penalty was quite well done and shows he is prepared to give as good as he gets

Well, you could not have asked for more action and suspension, could you?

Incredibly close racing in Barcelona, Toprak easing away from Rea in one of the most competitive championships. Several Brits coming away from the weekend feeling pretty secondhand and Kawasaki scratching their heads.
