Sure. No problem

Would it be boring and predictable to pick Johnny Rea for the win?

Could be the much anticipated match up between the Kwaks. I'd imagine the Dukes should also go well at Donington.

But looking at the weather.....

Anythings possible...

I've had cracked ribs. It hurts to do *anything*, much less race a motorcycle.

Yeah, me too. I don't see how he can.

I cracked a rib last Tuesday before leaving Wednesday for eastern Tennessee and western North Carolina , lots of curvy roads and gravel mixed in. Coughing ,laughing and especially sneezing hurt as well as hopping water bars on the gravel roads.
In the back of my head there was always a voice saying "Don't crash again." And for the 900 mile round trip I didn't.
So how can you be competitive like that ?

Hard Bastard.

He's up there.

I think we could be in for some excellent racing. Hope the weather doesn't make a mess of it.

I'm guessing he gets a painkiller injection.

I played football with broken ribs after a shot of Toradol. The pain was significantly dulled. It still hurt, but it was tolerable.

I'd take broken ribs over a broken collar bone, but either would suck. How about Camier on the MV fastest in P1?!

Looks like Sykes has finally come to terms with his bike and team this year, capturing the pole for race day.

Should be a good battle at the front.

He was fast at Imola as well, his problem is over race distance he drops away in the last 1/3rd

Sykes's problem is Johnny Rea on a good bike. Same problem everyone else in WSBK has (except JR65).
