chris top man

its a crying shame he spent so long on that suzuki i think he could have done what spies done had he been given the right bike they always say that people from wsbk never make it but spies is the only one that was given a reall shot( i supose baylis got a good shot but on his day he could have done to valencia 2006) toseland had a reasonable first year but hes to blame for his second year) as for edwards cant wait for him to retire theres so many others that deserve that bike rather than someone who just speeds up at the end of the year. hope cal gets the help from yamaha think he will have a couple of gd results silverstone is a defo he was just off the pace on his wsbk bike in quali

chris top man ?

Cant wait for edwards to retire? i think yamaha would rather have someone who has the consistancy of Edwards i mean who would you get to replace him? basically edwards is a solid finisher and knows the bike, anyone else would do a JT and be so worried about trying to prove themselves that they spend most of the year on their backside or back in 12th place. I hope Cal does a good job but winning 2 races in iffy condisons at silverstone and doing nothing at all else on a bike that the year before was winning evey week with a guy who had never been to over half the tracks before i dont think that warents you beeing compared to spies or a gp ride.

Doesn't look good

Best part of a year since his original injury and still struggling even for a few laps - that doesn't look good.

You do wonder whether this is the end of his career - very sad.

I like Chris. World class solid rider. Sure hope he doesn't end up on the permanent injury list.
