Not all yams are equal!!
Im no great toseland lover or hater, CH987 stole my thunder though!! he's spot on, though spies undoubtedly got better results than toseland, lets not kid ourselves that toseland had anything like the level of yam and tyres that spies did... toseland was riding a second rate t'urd!
though to be fair it seems toseland is one of those riders who really seems to need the whole package to be just right and well settled in his team to be at his best (which lets remember is a two time world champ best)
no-one can doubt his dedication, he always does an obscene amount of test laps, and remember the other year in donnington he binned trying to recover a bad qual on first corner then raced the whole race with somehting like a footpeg missing but he wanted to be out there for ALL HIS FANS! and i was a tose t shirt that day, and i still have it, and i still wear it!!!
perhaps he should focus on racing though and not playing the piano, surely thats a distraction on race weekend?
All the best to James anyway, hope he has a blinder of a season and settles with the team
PS i dont get all the excuses whinges on this post - I cant think of a professional rider today who doesnt moan like hell about his bike anytime he isnt on top step of podium. THEY ALL DO IT! (actually tom sykes doesnt seem to - but thats about it :)
