What the hell? have just watched the 2nd race live and was looking forward to hearing the Irish national anthem being played with the Irish flag being flown for Eugene and eurosport had the the whole thing edited out and only showed a few seconds of the podium after the anthem/flag

eurosport didnt edit out the flag/anthem of the first race and never edit out the flag or anthem of other races when shown live

eurosport, your political agenda is obvious for everyone to see

Great stuff from Laverty and Sykes, well done to them. Hard and fair racing.

As for Ducati, did those who developed the Panigale take inspiration from their MotoGP bikes of current?

I was a little disheartened when they were knocking checa on eurosports, I think they are not looking at the layout of PI and how it doesnt require the same kind of start stop / braking that are at more traditional tilke like layouts. 2011 was only ever going to go Ducati's way 2012+ has been about the RSV4, but thats what happens when you have people on the same tires ... Sad but true.

Great racing! I wonder what's happened with Melandri's bike, seems like electronics issues.... Laverty's on fire and this season is gonna be VERY interesting, still 12 rounds to go!

Guinters must have had some sort of setup/tire issue,But He is still leading the point race.Still cant beleave how fast he has come to grips with the RSV.Loris Baz looks very Good and we knew J.Rea would be fast here.
Laverty and Sykes was a great battle,Nothing between them.

@ John

Want sauce with that huge chip on your shoulder?

Don't be so paranoid! Do you complain when the BBC don't play the Spanish or Italian anthems when they don't show the podium ceremonies? Must be part of their political agenda right?

Sheesh, some people!
