4. Biggest disappointment

Sylvain Guintoli - on so many levels. First off, the French ace was sidelined by the Donington crash. Up to that point Guintoli looked capable of giving Camier a good run for the title.

Then when he returned on the Worx Suzuki the truth was, Guintoli was far from fit and never lived up to the promise we’d seen earlier in the year.

And then came the biggest blow. Before the season finished, news broke that he was going to join Alstare Suzuki – great news for him to be back racing at world level but a blow to Worx team, the series organisers and the fans.
