Tire was losing air when Sykes went past. You can see Rea look down soon after and adjust accordingly. Davies is doing his best to throw another year away

It appears that at certain tracks, he must over ride the bike in order to keep up with the green machines.

Bike has the power but he loses in the turns and has to ride the paint off the bike.

prior to coming to wsbk Chaz was notorious for sliding the bike around and basically riding the race exactly like he is currently . I.E fast crasher

also I'd like to point out his Race to win ratio has gone from like almost nothing to a reasonable percentage. I.E he's doing million times better on the ducati than he has on any other bike.
I think he won a few ama supersport races and that is about it .
I remember him being fast and crashing a lot but not winning

I could be wrong but my memory is still pretty good .

At first I didn't think Chaz was good enough to deserve a ducati ride I've since realized I was wrong , but that being said he is doing exactly what he has always done except he is winning way more .

All my opinion but it could be backed up or shot down with stats with a little google

Chaz has raced just about everything. He was in the AMA for a bit on Kawi's, Yamaha's, and the Aprilia. People tend to forget that he raced a lot in 125's and 250's on the GP circuit when he was younger. He also won a WSS title on an R6. He dominated that entire season actually which was pretty impressive considering his relative size to most 600 riders.

Thought this was a cool pic from the weekend.

Thanks from Twistedracer, Thamer and Macattack
