WHAT DO THE RID­ERS THINK?

Motorcycle News (UK) - - Sport -

REA “Com­ing from a sport­ing point of view, I don’t agree with the changes, but I un­der­stand that it’s a prod­uct, a busi­ness and we have to sell it to the out­side world. I think it will be the same guys as far as re­sults go, it might change the ac­tion in the race but I’m not sure it will ac­tu­ally change the fi­nal re­sult.”

SYKES “It doesn’t re­ally make sense; I feel it’s not great for safety as you have po­ten­tially faster rid­ers com­ing from ninth place. Also, if you are lead­ing and have a tech­ni­cal prob­lem, you have to start the next race from at least tenth!”

DAVIES “I have no is­sues with it at all. I think that the diehard fans have a right to say that it does take away some of the pu­rity of what we’re do­ing, but it’s only for one race. If you flick on the TV on a Sun­day and see the guys who started sev­enth, eighth or ninth com­ing through to fight to win it could be pretty spec­tac­u­lar!”

CAMIER “I think it is pretty cool. For the top nine or 10 rid­ers, ev­ery­body is ob­vi­ously at a re­ally high level, so it will be in­ter­est­ing. It will make it quite fun. I don’t think it will change the re­sult that much, but there will be times when it will af­fect things. I am a fan!”
