I'll still watch it though because despite Rea's dominance of this series, there is on occasion, some great racing.

Don't get me wrong, Jonny absolutely deserves every win he gets, the championship, without him, would be a close run thing, just wish the championship was a bit closer.

Also I take an interest in Marco Melandri's career since he got screwed over by Aprilia, (funny how Aprilia seem to be in the habit of doing that to riders).

Anyway, for all those interested, here's the 2018 calendar :-

Tom Sykes is no slouch, but can't keep up with Jonny even on the same bike!

Chaz does his utmost, but has to live on the ragged edge.
