He seems to be more about quality of life and he likes what he has.

If offered a Factory Yamaha he might do it. On a satelitte bike he is not going anywhere.

Gerloff felt different and has shown that US riders can be competitive now. That is cool. Hope he gets his shot with the top tier R1 next year.

The SuperPole race was good. Bautista's highside was as brutal as anything from the 500cc 2-stroke GP era. Tough dude to be ready to race in the afternoon. Too bad about the bike letting him down. Still, good news to see the Honda working so well.

Couldn't be happier for Gerloff. The kid rode his ass off. Those long full-power. dirt track slides through that one right hander were All of Race 2 was good and I was glad to see Chaz get the win. Hard to imagine what it would have been like with a healthy Bautista and Toprak in the mix.

Fun weekend. Love watching the Superbikes at Catalunya. They seem perfectly suited for this track. Would love to see Barcelona on the calendar next year and find a way to get over there to watch. There are rumors about Beaubier and one of the Yamaha WSBK rides. Out of five Yamaha seats, only Toprak is signed for next year. I'd be surprised if Gerloff isn't offered a deal to stay in WSBK next year.

Magny Cours is next. Toprak Territory.

Be awesome to have Cam and Garrett on the same factory SB team.



Will Cam give up the change to be the all time winninget rider in the US Superbike class??

Not sure he can do it, but if he continues to dominate like this year he could.

Fingers crossed for Gerloff to get Van der Mark's factory R1.

Watch this video (Videopass needed) where Michael Van der Mark told Ben Spies to stop sending fast kids from the US to World SBK

The same video is on the WorldSBK YouTube channel. The part with van der Mark talking to Spies is near the end.

"Come on!" Gerloff is going to need to be medicated if when he wins one of these.
