I guess he's probably too old now for the big factories to want to give him a shot but he certainly looks to be the most talented rider in SBK by a pretty fair margin.
I think the M1 would probably bring the best in Rea if he was on a GP bike. He's got the Lorenzo style...really smooth and calculated guy with just enough aggression as needed to win and the thing that has really set him apart since joining KRT is he rarely makes a mistake. He's a machine!

Felt bad for both Cluzel and Jacobsen with the blown engines.

Also what sucks is that rider 111 (Kyle Smith?) was already DQ'd, but his riding prevented the Thai rider from competing for first.

Never ride faster than you can stop

Yeah that was very dickish for Smith to do that. Even when he got black-flagged he didn't see it.
