Shakey

Shane 'Shakey' Byrne is a BSB veteran, with a record breaking five BSB championship wins under his belt, including the most recent 2016 championship which was won as part of the Be Wiser Ducati superbike team.

Shakey's smooth and calm riding style gives him an opportunity to mould the race to his choosing. While his respect for the track and his competitors means everyone can expect a good race when Shane is involved, he's not adverse to riding hard and dirty when required. Returning to the Ducati BSB race team, Shakey has picked up where he left off in 2008, securing Ducati their first win since the last time he rode one to victory.

Winning and setting records that won't be broken for years to come is Shakey's goal - and it makes for an exciting time for riders and spectators alike.

I must admit, it’s a strange feeling to have won the championship with a sixth place finish but to do so with a new manufacturer is a massive achievement for both myself and the team. The conditions in the first race today were very tricky and the bike was strong in the wet part of the track and not so strong in the other parts so it made it very difficult to overtake. Leon came by and I realised I needed to keep one place behind him to clinch the title and whilst he pulled away initially, he gradually came back to me and we got the job done. Winning my fifth title will probably sink in later and it’s certainly a weight off my shoulders and whilst I was desperate to end with a win, we signed off with a podium. The whole Be Wiser Ducati team have worked incredibly hard all season long so a massive thank you to them especially my crew chief Giovanni, and team of Kev and Sam.
