Hislop back on the pace at Knockhill

Published: 01 July 2002

Steve Hislop is setting the pace on the second day of practice ahead of Sunday’s MCN BSB round at Knockhill.

According to the MonsterMob Ducati rider his recent lack of race-winning form can be traced to the new sharper profile Dunlops being run by all the top riders.

Hislop felt the taller sidewalls were flexing too much, undermining his confidence in the front end. But he was given new tyres with strengthened shoulders in time for Knockhill which have restored his faith.
