Well I shit the bed!

I couldn’t believe my eyes when I saw 5, yes … 5 British riders on the WSBK SuperPole list from Phillip Island!? Holy Shit!

I’m dissapointed to see Shakey so far down the list, and Haga too as I think he’s a brilliant rider.

Good luck to Johnny Rea on the front row! Top show dude – tho he’s from Northern Ireland – so I guess I should be rooting for our home grown monobrow talent of Leon Haslam. Bollocks to favouritism I’d love to see the British boys up there on the podium! Wishing them all the best down under!!
