Chinese tire to be sole supplier in WTC for 2023?

Oh thank god! Given some of what’s come out of the FIM it wouldn’t have surprised me. Remember when the minimum weight requirement “leveled the playing field”? No? Just like the elimination of stop and hop “leveled the playing field”. Both made it much more affordable and greatly increased participation. Except they didn’t.

Seems to me like a good way to create a handicap TBH, tyres are already heavily restricted, there's not that much difference in restricting them more!

The weight restriction does help too, IMO, because at least now you can buy a good used bike from anywhere in the last 20 years or so and it can be pretty competitive, without it anyone without a titanium frame and magnesium engine that cost 20K or more would be left behind.
