BE WISER DU­CATI WINS 7 PODIUMS 11 POINTS 543

He might have had his worst week­end of the year at Oulton, but you’d be daft to rule Byrne out of the ti­tle fight. The four-time champ has fought for the ti­tle each year since his re­turn to the se­ries in 2011 and this year will be no dif­fer­ent. Ex­pect the Pani­gale to suit the fast, flow­ing na­ture of Don­ing­ton and Assen, and we’ve al­ready seen how he can dom­i­nate his home round at Brands, where this year’s ti­tle will be de­cided over three races. He said: “I might have sur­ren­dered some podium points to Leon last week­end but it’s who comes out on top in the next seven races that mat­ters. I’ll be go­ing out all guns blaz­ing to get back to win­ning ways and that starts at Don­ing­ton Park this week­end where I’ll be out to take the dou­ble.”
