Don’t knock Johnny
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
