Get that double Hopper.. was a great race shame shakey and tommy fell back a little at the end. And poor Kiyo won't be repeating after that he's really not looked good all year. Oh and John K put in a nice ride as well.

Someone described Hill yesterday as having a tendency to ride like a bull in a china shop. Well both friggin Swan riders can take that label away with them after todays efforts.
Shakey Byrne was amazing reaching the front of both races the way he did, and every pass he made was 100% clean without affecting any other riders. Those two Swan wannabe's should go away tonight and watch the reruns of those races and learn from Shakey how to ride and overtake cleanly without f**king up other riders.
Seems that's these other three apart from Shakey aren't happy with the ridiculous points system already being stacked in their favour - they've gotta use a few other dirty tactics to boot.

Matt - you can exclude Hopper from that accusation because every one of his passes was clean as a whistle.

Hopkins smashed Byrne out of a race winning position on the second to last corner at Snetterton in race 2 if you remember. That deprived Shakey of another win and 12 more guarnteed points. So his 'real' lead after today (minus the stupid Laverty punt) could actually be 349 to 316.

What a complete load of toss. Even Shakey said Hopper's was a racing incident and nothing else. Non argument there.

Jessop gone down in my estimations after his childlike on track tantrums because he couldn't pass brookes for a while...

Hopper for the title I say then MGP 2012 Suzuki...

Go John
