Cook will have flaws at this level at least initially and I don't expect him to trouble the top eight, BUT he can gate which is absolutely vital. Certainly don't think he will be cannon fodder. If he can get some good kit under him he will be a nuisance and a spoiler at least. May even surprise us all and finish somewhere around midway in the series.

Cook can gate,but 1st bends are pretty ruthless in GPs,better hope he is well clear IMO .

I hope that you are right as at his best Cook can be superb and be great to watch. Only he can crack the way that pressure seems to bear down on him. Making the top eight though seems very unlikely to me.

Agree totally.

 

Can see Cook being similar to say Batchelor when he was in the series. The odd semi , maybe even one blinding GP like Batch had, but ultimately will end up near the bottom end. Hopefully im wrong

Batch finished 9th in his first season above Lindgren and Iversen. Can see Cook finishing 10th plus or minus one.

Batch is a better rider than cook though. Certainly abroad
