Assen WSB: Rea takes first win of 2012

Ten Kate Honda rider Jonathan Rea has taken his first race win of 2012 in drying conditions during the second superbike race at Assen. The drying conditions meant tyre choice would be critical, with Rea opting for hard slick tyres, which improved towards the end of the race enabling Rea to push through to the front.

Rossi

Does anyone else see Rossi on a Ducati WSB next season, or even an Aprilia if Max doesnt win the title and gets the boot?

I don't think rossi can get a competitive ride now in Moto Gp and could easily win WSB in his second year. I think the racing in WSB is better but they are all quite raw and can loose or gain 5 bike lengths in a lap.

The difference with Moto GP and WSB riders is corner speed, but then there are prob only 5 maybe 6 GP riders who are clearly better than WSB riders. the GP riders who have won SBK Biaggi, Checa in recent years both were in the top 5 on regular basis, not runing at the back of the field. And Checa always said he preferre big 4 strokes to 2 strokes.

Put Melandri on the Aprilia and he would be a major contendor he won 5 moto gp races.

Scott Redding should be on the radar of BMW i think, and Camier should go back to BSB he found his level, great rider but not quite there.

Rossi will be a good option for Ducati Althea or even the return of the official Superbike Ducati Team with new 1199 Panigale.

I agree with Bolts83 Rossi next year will not a competitive bike in Motogp,so I think the best option is the WSBK that is a very competitive championship,so much better than Motogp.

Melandri don't need to go to Aprilia to be a major contendor,I think him in the S1000RR is already a big contender.

Leon Camier there's no doubt that he has not level to be on WSBK.

Camier and co

I agree Camier is a good rider but he took a backward step going to Suzuki, if he could get on an Effenbert Ducati he will have a better chance. That seems to be the level  of team he is at.

Or even partner/replace sykes at Kawasaki if he moves to a better team. Riding the wheels off that Kwak and deserves more.
