Oh yeah, maybe you are right about Westby. He won once I think. Meanwhile, Roberts was as quick as Buby and Gerloff at a couple of those meets. Gerloff was as fast as the two Daytona YES Yamaha's at his debut NJMP 2011. First time he ever saw the track too. So Maybe Roberts has something. Speaking of lap times as they were in the lower 600 class. I think the bike specs are the same, though.

I'm hesitant to call Roberts the next big thing...yet. Roberts did a very good job dominating other teenagers and shows a lot of promise. But look at Nicky Hayden at sixteen and seventeen years old racing against established Superbike stars in a very stacked supersport class. Thats world championship talent.
