Shakey on an Onda

"Shane “Shakey” Byrne will make his Camel Honda debut alongside Alex Barros at the Sepang circuit on Friday amidst a wave of excited expectation from British fans. The former British Superbike Champion replaces Troy Bayliss, who has returned to his home in Monaco to recover from a recent operation to repair a broken wrist, and will also be riding for the team at the next round in Qatar.

"I have never raced in Malaysia but I did test there with Aprilia. It is a technical circuit and I like it, but until I ride there on the RC211V I don’t know what to expect. I have only ever dreamed of riding a bike like this.”"

Team principal Sito Pons commented: “I think that with a competitive bike and team he will be able to show his true ability. I hope he adapts quickly to the Honda and to the team.”

Talk about pressure, do well or head back to British Surperbikes with Chris Walker and Neil Hodgson

It would be nice to see him do ok, whats the betting BP?

I really hope he goes alright.....

Only just watched Hodgson running a Duke in the AMA on the telly last night, must have gotten sick of the BSB loonies

Is it weird in here, or is it just me?

Sepang & Shakey.

If it's dry i'll give him top ten finish or maybe even top five if a few key guys screw up. It won't be for lack of trying that's for sure

If it rains>>>>>>

Hasn't this topic turned colder than a wintery day at Phillip Island fast

Heard that Vermulen may get Bayliss' seat for our Motogp in a few weeks???? Which it looks like I'll miss thanks to being stuck in the land of the Crout!!!

Yeah

As Tug said it was a "career ending performance" pity it would have been nice to have a brit amongst the wops up front.

Lets hope Chris V does a better job
