    Rea put the blame squarely on Sykes. He's probably going to have a new teammate next year.

    Race direction didn't seem to think so. Seemed like a racing incident to me, but we never got a full clear view of the incident.

    I wouldn't mind seeing a shakeup in the WSBK rider market. Let's see Chaz, Sykes, and VDM play musical chairs.

    That was either a racing incident or Rea's fault. He put himself in a bad spot.

    Agreed . I don't see how he could dive bomb Sykes and not expect him to be there on the racing line after trying to cut back
     
    The Great One and Knotcher like this.

    Racing incident or at least none of the camera views showed anything where you could directly blame either rider. Only thing would be if there were some kind of team orders for Sykes to never make contact with JR because he is leading the championship. If that were the case nothing should be said or even hinted out outside the team.
