Duke 2010 WSBK DVD: Reviewed

2010 World Superbike Review

Before any motorcycle racing series shakes the winter blues from its exhaust pipe, I’ve become accustom to thoroughly reviewing the previous season.

This reviewing process is usually completed through text, computers and hours of DVR events. But thanks to a company in the British Isles, one series is simplifies into a condensed and enjoyable race-by-race format, World Superbike. The company that makes reviewing an entire season so easy is Duke out of the Isle of Man (and yes, Duke is known for its TT review).

But don’t think condensed means short. The Official 2010 FIM Superbike World Championship Review arrives in a two-DVD package, with 7:43 minutes of WSBK action.

Yes, 7 hours and 43 minutes. Each of the 13 rounds (26 races) can be easily found on the DVD’s menu, allowing you to watch (and re-watch) your favorite race’s highlights by simply choosing a chapter.

For each race, Duke only shows the intensity-packed laps, ones with passing and crashes, and the opening/closing laps. In this format, the Duke WSBK DVDs only show action…and NO commercials.

From the opening round at Phillip Island taken by then-Suzuki rider Leon Haslam and Ducati’s Carlos Checa, to the final round in Magny Cours won by Cal Crutchlow (Sterilgarda Yamaha) and the man who was already crowned champion, Aprilia’s Max Biaggi, Duke’s 2010 World Superbike Championship Review keeps the excitement thick for two-wheel race fans.

For the true WSBK enthusiast, Duke’s 2010 review undoubtedly prepares fans with every bit of knowledge needed before the 2011 season opens at Phillip Island Feb. 25-27.

And for devotees of WSBK in my area on the East Coast, there’s an even larger appeal to owning the review DVD – it’s all in HD, which is not available here for the World Superbike Championship.
