Fantastic show by Shqkey, amazing rider. Gutted for Hopkins, I wasn't always a fan.......but his 2011 season in BSB was inspirational and heartbreaking. A sad end if this finishes his career. Haslam? Sorry, but, he just isn't the rider he's hyped up to be. He's never had to struggle on shit machinery, and he just doesn't have that championship quality. Roberts Jnr was slated for getting rides on his surname, and he took the 500 title on the Suzuki. A well deserved champion, as is Shakey Byrne.

I've always liked Shakey, sad that he never got a proper go on the world stage, a couple of seasons in MotoGP were wasted on the dreadful Aprilia RS Cube and the equally bad Team Roberts bike though he did have a few points finishes on both I think 10th was the best he could manage. He won some WSBK races but ultimately his machinery wasn't competitive enough to sustain a proper challenge.

Leon had some pretty shit rides in GP to be fair but off the top of my head yeah he's pretty much been on top machinery in both BSB and WSBK.
