IMO the BSB riders are way better than the WSB ones, WSB seems to be the poor relative to MotoGP.

The BSB bikes are probably harder to ride given that they have no rider aids and it's a more competitive series overall with a lot more riders capable of winning and on top of that international riders with WSB and MotoGP experience tend to struggle. Take Sylvain Guintoli for example a man with over a decade of experience racing in GP and a former WSB champion got outscored by his 20 year old rookie teammate Bradley Ray this year. Nori Haga a man with over 40 WSB race wins scored a solitary podium when he came to BSB while his teammate battled for the championship. Though saying that some riders have come over and been successful Josh Brookes and Ryuichi Kiyonari being the most recent, John Hopkins had one good season but has largely been irrelevant since.

It's a tough championship for sure and it's very easy to be contending for wins one season then struggling to finish in the top 10 the next.

BSB bikes are probably naturally the best suited to Jerez... the track is more similar to Brit tracks than most MGP/WSBK tracks. Their lack of HP is negated to a great extent.
