Who will come out on top?
After Rea (Kawasaki Racing Team WorldSBK) won a record-extending fifth consecutive title in 2019, he has to be the man to catch once more in 2020. But Alex Lowes, Toprak Razgatlioglu, Alvaro Bautista and Michael van der Mark are just some of the names aiming to finally knock Rea off his perch this season.
