I cannot believe that Josh Brookes has been disqualified from the first race. Josh Brookes has been the crowd puller for Cadwell and named the king of the mountain, don't dam him when he does his stuff, there was nothing intentional about the accident with Rutter, it is just racing.

Makes a mockery of it all again. Josh came off the mountain faster than Blade, he nudged up the inside. If that is a no overtaking spot then displayed yellow flags at that section every lap. Joke. Sorry for Rutter, but thats racing. IMO.

This decision stinks and is total bull,shame on you MSV.

To open the door to this political move had better set a precedent for the future and be applied fairly and evenly to domestic riders also.

I have seen this move happen repeatedly at Cadwell and no punishment given,Brookes is being made a whipping boy

Hypocrites.

Josh Brookes is DANGEROUS, full stop ! Not the first debacle with him, and sadly wont be the last.....
Should be kicked out of the championship in my view, before someone gets badly injured.

This was a racing incident. Brookes is not a routinely dangerous rider. Past incidents(2 years ago) were later found to be caused by issues with the bike. It will be a travesty if Kiyo stays in the top six and goes on to win the title. Kiyo has not performed all year. The shoot out may create excitement, and ensure a last gasp finish, but if Shakey, Hill or Hopper do not win then it seems like a bit of a farce.

I admire Brookes over the mountain. However any track is more then 1 corner. I have ridden/ raced round Cadwell and you dont overtake there not just my opinion.
Tight is OK harsh is OK but at cadwell and at at that corner you dont give the other rider an option.
Brookes wont sleeep easy tonight, His body language said it all.
