13th, 21st, and 25th? Not good. Ten Kate is in trouble. Not surprising considering that they got their bikes so late in the preseason and only had one test. I hope they can make some fast progress but if they finish race 1 outside of the top ten chances are they are not going to be able to catch up enough during the season to challenge for the title, or even the top 5. :(

When I saw these times posted this morning, it felt like there was some weight lifted off my shoulders.

I am SO happy it's racing season again!

I Think Carlos Checa will be much more competative tomorrow and the weekend. This is basicly his first time on the 08 bike!

I love watching Nori race...he hangs it all out every lap!

Has anyone had any luck with the Speedtv site finding their racing schedule? They changed the site and it seems all screwed-up? I know the these races run Tuesday.

Yeah maybe the Ten Kate boys will do better in Superpole and the race since they've had so little time on the bike. I just fear that the bike is simply not developed enough yet. Ducati had the 1098R testing from the beginning of the preseason and Ten Kate got their bikes after the new year :/

I checked the schedule before they f'ed up the site and it said that the races would air on Sunday at 5 and 6 o'clock. I'll double check it on my digital cable box.

no brits this year. i got my eye on supersport, we have a big group of riders this year
I think WSS is going to be incredible exciting this year, especially since I don't think anyone is going to run away with it the way Sofuoglu did last year. Here are the 1st Qualifying times:

Great to see Jonny Rea already going fast. I hope he takes the title this year and moves right on up to WSBK.

I am pretty sure Rea is already signed up to go to WSBK in '09/'10.

Go Rea and McCoy!!!

Yeah, I think Superbikes and Supersports are going to both be very exciting!!! I can't wait till Sunday! Honda has a lot of talented riders in Supersport (Rea, Pitt & Jones) this year! It should be very close racing. I think the Triumphs will struggle this year, but it's great to see them racing.

Durrr...you're totally right, I forgot about that. Well I hope he wins anyway because it will give him good momentum when he steps up. At first I was kind of disappointed that he didn't go straight to WSBK. But looking at how far behind Ten Kate seems to be at this point, it might be a blessing in disguise that he's in WSS.
