    WorldSBK 2021


    Any of y'all watch SBK?

    I'm hoping Jonny can mesh with the 2021 ZX10rr and continue setting records. I've been a fan since he was losing on the Honda, he's a class act.

    Can Redding put up a fight? I'm thinking he'll be stronger than last year, probably click off 2nd place.

    Gerloff??? Fingers crossed for him. Locatelli... that will be interesting. He's clearly got what it takes to dominate in WSS.. but PJ wasn't so bad either...

    Rabat

    Not a fan or Rea, but I'm sure he'll dominate again which is why I won't be buying the video pass this year.

    Redding is his only real competition. Davies has crumbled, Gerloff isn't likely to get anything done.

    It's too bad Dovi just took the year off, it would be nice to see another GP rider who is in their twilight come in and kick some ass in WSBK (i.e. like Biaggi did).

    I always wanted ti see Rossi go to wsbk. I'm sure Yamaha would make it work for him but I know he does not want to race production based bikes.

    Do ya buy the motogp subscription? Rea only won by 55 points this year, 51 back in 2016. I think he's got some competition this year, and an uphill battle with the Dorna hurdles, ie Rev limits.

    Biaggi was a beast, that Aprilia was amazing too. How the mighty have fallen, they should've stayed put in Sbk

    That would be a dream to watch but I'm sure it would "taint his image" or something

    Yes, I buy the gp pass some years.

    For me Rea is the Mladin of WSBK. I donít like him, donít care to watch him win another championship, and wonít spend my money on wsbk this year.

    I'd prefer a non-child molester comparison...

    Hahaa, well, I agree with Gixxer. I really don't like Rea, and watching him dominate has gotten boring. Unlike Marquez, who is NEVER boring to watch, dominant or not. I could just watch him practice and the subscription would be worth it.

    I like Rea, just like I like Marquez. I just don't like watching anyone dominate.

    I did not watch any WSBK this past season. Two years ago when Bautista was smacking Rea around was pretty entertaining but I didn't watch every race. Might get back into it this year after taking this time off of it. Some new names to get familiar with.
