He'll only have to bother with him when he's lapping him.

And for people who say the Sykes/Harris crash wasn't Haslem's fault, watch the crash again and look how wide his line was going into the next corner, Sykes had no where to go and his reaction proved how angry he was with Leon.

Haslem is lucky that it was his good friend Karl Harris on the recieving end of both incidents and not someone less friendly such as Sean Emmett.


Watched race 2 today, Haslam is a fucking idiot.

Yep, he again proves how dangerous and idiotic he is on a bike, I feel incredibly sorry for Tom Sykes for both the Thruxton incident and now the incident today.

Also how much better than any other bike on the grid is the 1200cc Ducati, I can't believe both the BSB bosses and WSB bosses allow a visabally superior bike with 200cc more than the fours in their championships.

This form is not common from Haslam, I dunno why he's become so erratic. I think it's the pressure of Crutchlow being much faster than he expected, and the fact he was expected to win this year.

To be fair, it's more down to the riders than the bike. Byrne has always been rapid on a Duke, Camier is one of the top 5 talent wise and Rutter is Rutter. I mean look at WSB, Bayliss is running away but Smrz, Lanzi and Xaus are hardly dominating, or filling up the top spots.

Yup, he even lobbed it at Redgate at his Dad's race school on Wednesday

I've never watch Haslam, but wasn't he supposed to be a big time rider? Wasn't he supposed to be the next star rider?

Yeah, he's amazing on that Duke. I hope he wildcards WSB at Brand's, I reckon he could double again.

Not from what I remember, but everyone expected him to be good considering how successful his dad was when he used to race.
