"Broc Parkes, the local kid, won the Supersport race. I think that's kind of what we saw in practice and testing. He's been fast all pre-season, whether they've been testing at Phillip Island or anywhere else. He was one of those kids last year that you watched him gain more experience, more confidence, and race closer and closer to the front, and threaten for race wins. "
Broc has been running at the front for far longer than just last year......Ol' No:34 is losin' it.

I don't care about the general opinion. But there was an interview late last year where he stated, that his riding style was the problem. We know he had a leg injury which caused him to limp for much of the season. But on top of that he stated that his riding style caused him to fatigue too early. I'm sure he tried to balance it out somehow, but it didn't seem to work either in fitness or in results. Why it works in WSS I don't quite understand either. Tires? Competition? Distance? No idea...
