Bridgestone's best-selling 165 section rear wet tyre has been replaced with a 170 section. Not a big change, but also not the only change in the ever evolving world of motorcycle tyres.
If you wanted anywhere that defined the word "wet" last weekend it was Snetterton. The rain came at every intensity from a very light shower to blinding, horizontal torrents, giving track conditions that swung wildly between dry all round the circuit to a virtual river of rain.
Despite this incredibly difficult set of conditions, the new tyres worked very well, giving Adam Cross the grip to finish second in the Minitwins, with Joe Buxton third. In the EDI Asia 400 races, Dan Ruth took a third, also on the new Bridgestone wets.
These tyres are available from Alan in the paddock at Bemsee, North Gloucestershire and Thundersport GB race meetings as well as selected track days. To make sure that you get yours in good time, you can also buy them in our online shop.
