May-f3-548x364

Team Hero EBR signed off from their debut season in the World Superbike championship under the floodlights at the Losail International Circuit with Geoff May finishing 17th and 16th in the evening’s two races while Aaron Yates suffered two crashes, the latter in race 2 resulting in him been taken to hospital for further checks.

The weekend had up until today been the most positive of the season to date, with Geoff taking his EBR 1190RX into Tissot-Superpole for the first time and looking as though a point scoring finish was possible.

Both races did however show that the EBR machines have evolved as the season has progressed and there are a lot of positives to be taken.

In summary the season has been a huge learning experience for everyone involved, and the Team Hero EBR wishes to thank all of its partners for making their debut World Superbike season.

Geoff May – “I gave it everything in both races and we were once again just outside the point scoring places. I want to thank everyone in the team, especially my guys here with from America this weekend for all their hard work and determination during the season. I’m not sure what 2015 holds but I looking back on 2014 it’s been a great challenge and one that I have really enjoyed. Making it into Superpole here was one of my objectives so I am happy for this.”

At the time of writing the Aaron was being taken to the local hospital for further checks and an update on his condition will be given in due course.

    Hats off to Erik and the team!! Excellent job! No doubt, the learning, the experimenting, the labor, and all the heartaches will become positives in the refining process of the EBR. I have owned 3 Buells and look forward to stepping off the one I currently ride onto a new EBR at some point. My XB shakes, clunks at gear changes, and draws weird stares – but, man, can it go around a corner! I’ve owned 25 motorcycles in the last 30 years, and the XB is the most fun of all. I hope it’s supernatural handling stays a secret – more on the used market for me.
    Thanks Erik.
