I know MotoGP gets all of the headlines today, but does anyone follow WSBK? Since the control tire rule (everyone is on the same Pirellis) the series has went from a series dominated by twins to an extremely competitive racing series, with twins, triples and fours all competitive. In MotoGP there are three riders that have a chance for the championship: Rossi, Gibernau, or Biaggi. In WSBK there are probably at least ten riders that could win on any given weekend. This weekend they are racing at Phillip Island, and all 6 manufacturers are represented in the top 11 qualifying positions. The series features several ex-GP riders (McCoy, Abe, Pitt, Chili, Corser, Haga, Laconi), as well as riders that will eventually be riding in MotoGp in a year or two (Toseland, Vermeulen, Kagayama). The bad thing is that there will be no US or Canada rounds for the series this year. Maybe in 2006 we will be able to see them at Road America or Barber. If you get a chance, check it out in SpeedTV.
