Never felt tension, anxiety or anticipation like it, what drama, i thought tommy had lost it, i roared the house down when Jack burnicle shouted tommy's got it.
That last lap will never be 4gotten, how the hell did Hill not tuck the front doing that pass into dingle dell it was a miracle pass! Hopper what a legend as well, shame he wont be in BSB next year.
That race is going onto dvd without a doubt!

I really wanted Tommy to win this title fair & square under the 'showdown' and conventional scoring system, but he didn't, Shane Byrne is the 2011 BSB champion......much as I enjoyed the final laps fact remains that Shakey finished 4.5 seconds in front and did the double today...this is bike racing not the f*cking X factor, its the whole season that makes a championship.

Sry guys cannot help but be a complete hypocrite as i am so fricking glad Tommy won it....de frickin lighted actually. Only just saw your post which would make Shakey champ....that's a shame but you could see that Hopper and Tommy were playing each other and ignoring all else...but yes i am a hypocrite
BTW if you wondered what i looked like irl then i was the bloke mugging Tony Carter cheering Tommy, my flag was the 2 x george cross with tommy's name and jonsey's, just seen him dedicate that title to him when we got back home and a little emotional.
RIP #18, gone but never forgotten and Go #33! BSB champ (and yes i know, already admitted that) :)

That was the best last couple of laps since Rossi&Lorenzo's battle at Catalunya 2009 ! Well done to Shakey who was 5 seconds ahead but that was a truly amazing battle for the championship!
