Don’t knock Johnny

Motorcycle News (UK) - - News -

I’ve just read an­other let­ter knock­ing Jonathan Rea’s ac­tion at the last WSB round. What did peo­ple ex­pect? He hasn’t given Sykes any quar­ter over the sea­son, with the ex­cep­tion of the last lap of the last race.

Once it be­came clear Rea wasn’t go­ing to catch Davies, he gave way to his team-mate, a fel­low Kawasaki em­ployee who did count­less de­vel­op­ment work in the early years of the ZX-10R. It’s not a sport, un­like horse rac­ing, that de­pends on gam­bling for its sur­vival and while Davies lost out, Rea’s ges­ture was gen­er­ous. Rob Belling­ham, email
