I didn't see this as slagging Canadian riders and machines. My understanding was that there is sort of a hierarchy when it comes to superbike racing series. Many countries have their own superbike series (I know Canada, the US, Britain and, I think, Australia do and I'm assuming that there are others) and then "above" that is the "world" or international series. I always thought that the world series arguably has a higher calibre of competition than the "national" series (regardless of the country), don't they? (I'm not necessarily saying that the racing is any better though at the world level.) I mean they always talk about promising "national level" riders "moving up" to the world superbike series (e.g., like Nicky Hayden, most recently), so by his comment isn't Hu99 just acknowledging that this hierarchy exists?Hu99 said:Also, we get to see the top riders and teams.
