WSBK » Last gasp Laverty unsettles Sykes for Laguna win


Another thoroughly enjoyable race that one ! This weekend has done world superbikes a world of good. Laverty has now won 3 of the last 4 races, and a third place. Not too shabby eh ? I bet he rues his double dnf at Aragon (double crash, both his fault) which very well might prove crucial for the championship. Ironically, Aragon was the scene of misfortune for Sykes last season (wiped out from a podium position by BADovini) when he lost it by half a point. And today Aragon took out a title contender at MotoGP. That track cursed or what lol. Sykes and Laverty are the only riders on 7 wins now, class of the field. If Guinters can pull something back at his home round things can become very interesting. That said, I think people would expect a world champion with more than a couple of wins, and he has only 1 thus far which should be cause for concern for him.

WSBK » Last gasp Laverty unsettles Sykes for Laguna win


@Portyup, There are 4 races left, I'm assuming you're counting the Indian round which got cancelled. So indeed it will give Sykes the title if he finishes 2nd in all the remaining 4 races. But the problem for him is there is more than one rider eager to beat him and today's race showed it perfectly. Tom will have to fight for it, aiming for 2nd places won't cut it, there is no doubt.

BSB » Alex Lowes disqualified for Byrne collision


@ Dreaduk, Sorry mate, you simply can't turn a blind eye to a rider wiping out a fellow racer. If the stewards take no action, then there's nothing preventing it from becoming the standard and next thing you know there are riders getting seriously hurt or killed. @ Tetley, "If the trigger was pulled accidentally then surely no offence was committed ?" I can assure you even if you pull the trigger accidentally, you'll almost certainly serve jail time if the bullet's gone right into the victim's face. Regarding Lowes brothers, no I don't have anything against them since I hardly know either. I've seen their races and both are very good riders and racers. In case of Alex vs. Shane and Kenan vs. Sam I've tried to handle different situations impartially and comment on them. That's all.

BSB » Alex Lowes disqualified for Byrne collision


@secreto, In terms of racing, Shakey didn't have the opportunity to pick his bike up, infact he had no time to react because it's such a fast corner. On the other hand, Sam had just overtaken Kenan with few corners to spare until the end of the race and he should've been expecting an attack in a slow corner. In terms of causality, Sam had the chance to remount and finish the race without losing many positions. Consider Spa '08 for example, had Raikkonen not ploughed his car into the barriers the stewards could've chosen to reverse Hamilton's and Kimi's positions instead of just handing Hamilton a 25 sec. time penalty. So in a sense, you could say that a disqualification for Kenan could've occured only if the consequences had been dire. A better question to ask would've been why they did not reverse Sam's and Kenan's positions as they did with Linfoot and Kenan in Magny-Cours last year. Probably because they thought of it more like a racing incident.

I couldn't watch the race yesterday but did watch the re-run today. Lowes' impact was so forceful his front fender exploded upon impact. Glad Shakey is ok. It only makes sense that the race direction decided to exclude Lowes from the results, it's what is just. But not to take anything neither from him nor Byrne, both are fantastic riders and I am very much looking forward to the remaining races. @Tetley, Hi mate, consider this, if you accidentally pull the trigger and the bullet grazes someone's shoulder you're going to fare much better in the court compared to a situation where the bullet goes right in the middle of their face.
