Ok, we know who is going to win the SBK championship again.

Who thinks Troy Bayliss will win every race???

I think there is a good chance he can if he chooses too.
IMO the only ways he can lose a race is if he GIVES a race to his teammate (Rueben) or simply chooses not to race.

He's that good. Has anyone noticed his lap times at the beginning of his races vs. the end? They are almost identical.

He can pull away from the others at will.


So once again
WHO THINKS Troy Bayliss WILL WHEN THE REST OF THE SBK RACES???

Too many variables for that to happen. I think a better question to pose would be WHEN WILL BAYLISS BE TAKEN OUT BY HAGA OR ZAUS?

If neither of these two scenario's play out I think that Troy will have a very good chance at winning a majority of the races, but not all.

Hey Chaz! I don't think he will win every race but he is going to win as many as possible. I've already said that Bayliss won't be on the podium at Sugo (I'm willing to be proven wrong though /images/icons/wink.gif) but I expect him to dominate again when they visit Monza on the 12th of May. Here are his placings from last season at the remaining venues.

Taken out by Haga is right. If Haga keeps losing like this his temper will get the best of him (as it did in Kyalami), and he'll start throwing elbows, knees and toes at Troy's seat cowl again.

Wusup John???
How's the new bike???

Although I know the chances of him winning all of the races are extremely small, I just have this weird feeling in the back of my head that it is DEFINITELY possible and just might happen.

The bikes doing well, thanks. It's good to hear you'll be back on another bike very soon.

Alright, people are already up in arms over Ducati's seeming domination in World Superbike that I don't even want to see Bayliss pull 26 consecutive top steps. /images/icons/laugh.gif Regardless of how many 1st place finishes he will take this season I fully expect him to be retaining the crown for another year.
