Rea: WSB remains my priority

In the next five weeks Jonathan Rea will complete over four hours of free practice, seven hours of qualifying and 3 ½ hours of racing in both WSB and MotoGP. Having been drafted in the Repsol Honda MotoGP team to replace Casey Stoner, Rea will be switching between his WSB and MotoGP commitments riding in alternate championships and bikes for...

Rea

World Superbikes should definitely still be the priority for Rea but I would love to see him in GPs either next year or the year after. He's been in World Superbikes for quite a while now and apart from winning a race here and there he hasen't been able to put together a real strong challenge for a championship, therefore in my eyes needs a different challenge. He will never get any better from the level he is currently at, staying on the Honda CBR Fireblade. He has the potential to be a decent GP rider, he just needs the right opportunity.

..."because I'm not 3 seconds a lap behind those guys which makes it easier to knock them off in 'racing incidents' "

Asshole  - how long before he really hurts someone with his risks for fuck all riding?

Stating the obvious of course WSBK is gonna be Rea's priority as he races in that class.

Come on JR

Okay so JR has a wild side to his racing.He seems to have managed to stop on the RCV much to his credit.He may be a few seconds off the pace but at least he is showing maturity in not trying to go too quick too soon.. Why do some readers want to knock  riders without giving them a chance.There is only one "asshole" mentioned and to me its not the bloke on the RCV but the bloke who's bike goes down the cafe on a Sunday and has 1" chicken lines on his tyres. Time will tell JR and  for one wish you good luck.Sometimes fortune favours the brave.

Well... actually Jonny was only 1.5 secs off Lorenzo's time and was very close to Spies and the over-rated Bradl. Jonny's gonna show em next week for sure.  Yep he can be a little crazy, Moto Gp needs some action that's the other reason why he's there to put some life into the series, he takes no more risks that any other rider.

At the moment he's over-riding that CBR everyone knows that including Honda, do you seriously think that they would put him on the Repsol machine if they thought he was a liability.  They know he's fast and now it's up to him to prove that he can get acquainted with those tyres and close that gap.

I hope he does great, has he got the talent? Who knows, has Rea got the determenation and die hard adittude to give it all he's got. Hell Yeah. Jonathan kicked every team mate ass for years now. And me being from Holland? Ten Kate Honda ain't a top team no more. Still Rea never moans about his bike and treis verry hard always! Go to a free practice at any WSBK track and see who is out first and does alot of laps. Yep it's Rea! Did i say i hope he does great? Yeah i did. Sorry people i hope he does well! Top 6
