I tend to agree.
I'm not so sure about the safety aspect of it if we get a podium finisher in the first race making a bad start in the second, could a bit of desperation set in if the front pack is getting away?
It might cause some problems. And lets not forget Phillip Island is big and wide with places to pass and drafting is possible on the big bikes, others are a lot tighter and more difficult. It could be carnage :twisted:

Supersport race was a cracker!
It's not falling off, it's an upgrade opportunity.

I can see why they are giving this a go, but for me, like you Al I don't think it's the right move for the racers. Good point about Tom Sykes in the 2nd race,

i think laverty is still on a 2013 Aprillia so not a threat atm
Catties might get him but Rea seems to be able to keep a tighter line than everyone else

I'll stick my neck out, Chaz Davies :)
Well I'm hoping. His team mate Skyes must be in there with a chance,

Rea is going to walk away with it this year again
It's effortless for him
