SBK Czech Republic 2021: Schedules, favorites and where to watch the races live

The World Superbike Championship returns on a completely unknown circuit for series-derived motorcycles, that of Most, in the Czech Republic. An absolute unknown but one that will be decisive when it comes to finding the world champion this season.

Jonathan Rea returns to go outstanding leader of the world-wide after Garrett Gerloff's chore to Toprak Razgatlioglu in Assen's second long run. The Turk will want to risk again to recover points in an event that can be the hinge to know which World Cup we will have in the second part of the year.

In Assen the current world champion, Jonathan Rea, was able to stop the riot in its tracks that Razgatlioglu and Yamaha were concocting. He made a triplet of victories, and finished off the task with the fall of the Turk, who not only has made him lose many points but has sown discord in Yamaha.

On the new Most circuit, Rea should be placed as a favorite. Not only because of the superiority it is showing, but also because historically it has had a good ability to adapt to new circuits. The level of the pilot will have more to say than usual, and there Rea rules.

In any case, do not rule out the reaction of a Razgatlioglu who has been superior to the champion in three of the five weekends that we have, but has lost too many points in the two in which he was inferior. In Most, you have to be aggressive if you want to reduce the difference with Rea a bit.

To put ourselves in situation, there are 37 points that separate Razgatlioglu from Rea right now, when it arrived at Assen with two of advantage. By brands there are 27 points that Kawasaki takes from Yamaha, so it is not ruled out that in a good weekend at Razgatlioglu he can return them to the leadership.

We will see what happens with the internal situation of Yamaha, because before Assen it seemed that Gerloff was well placed to move up, but after his dangerous maneuver and the good performance of Andrea Locatelli, who achieved his first podium of the season, the swords are once again at the top.

On Ducati need to get back on the road to victory, because the season is being very bad and they are not even being the alternative to Rea's dominance, which was the basic premise of the Ducati Panigale V4 R project. Scott Redding is beginning to be questioned as the leader of the structure.

After achieving the best result of the season, Álvaro Bautista will arrive with renewed energy to finally get the first podium for Honda in 2021. The Honda CBR1000RR-R is still stuck in the last positions in factory bikes, and it is the only one without podiums yet.

Ultimately, BMW's goal will be to win a new podium, especially if conditions are tough. The new BMW M 1000 RR progressesSo much so that even in dry races it is common to see Tom Sykes and Michael van der Mark flirt with the leading positions of the race.

Sunday schedules change to not coincide with MotoGP
