While I admire JT's commitment and wish him a speedy return to full fitness I really wish he would call it a day and concentrate on the piano playing. He certainly doesn't have much luck with crashes and injuries and having to over-ride a machine which is not a race winner to try and get a result seems like a recipe for further disaster to me.

Fair play

I believe he still has the talent despite his myrad of 'unsupporters'. Hope he comes back and gets up to speed ont he bike and in his career.

Be interesting to see how Lanzi gets on though...

It's been a very bad injury and his career has not been going in the direction he wants for some time. Worth considering quitting for his own good maybe?

Good luck James.

I've been watching James since I saw him as a 15 year old at a Brands Bemsee meeting when he cleaned up in the CB500 cup, I went home and told my missus I've just seen a future world champion and he's proved me right twice. I would dearly love to still be watching him  racing in another ten years so it's absolutely the right decision to give his injury the chance to heal.  Best of luck James.

Not Done Yet

History tells us that many riders have come back from far worse injuries and won. Joey and Robert Dunlop, Barry Sheene, Carl Fogarty. The list is endless.

James will be back as a winner. Probably in BSB and he would be a massive crowd draw there. True Motorcycle Racing Fans like me know what a talent he is.

Future for James

Expect too see James in the BSB next season...

I like the boy, but he has alot of tough breaks in his career. Taking a step back would be a good idea, can't see him keeping the BMW ride, and there won't be many other teams breaking down his door to offer him a contract. Being in BSB would be a good idea either to rebuild, gain a season of fitness & go forward or to end on a high.

Just ride BSB, fight for a win will give some spirit! Look at  Shakey. Giving Kiyo a hard time. Hopefully Cal can keep the rythim going in his 2nd season in Moto Gp. Cal? i litarey said he would suck at GP level, being wrong does not always hurt:-)
