All credit to the pies. He rode impecably today and fully deserved the wins. I just wish he made a worse start in the races to make more of a race of of it, but oh well thats racing.
I think fabrizio deserves a mention, im amazed that he could live with spies pace for the first three quarters and looked like he was closing in on him at one point, what an achievment.
Gutted for haslam, he was riding great, but i can't blame him for trying.
Well done elbowz and fab :)

Was there any doubt about the outcome? It's Ben in the States!

Great ride by Fabrizio - he rode the wheels off the thing trying to keep Spies in site. I'm sure he was riding on the rims by the end.

Terrible luck for Haslam. His Stiggy bike had nothing for the ten Kate bike on power but he was really throwing it into the turns.

Not a bad weekend for me, Camier and Spies did great today. although my main man just had a bad tire choice in mugello, anyway good luck Rossi.

the other day Lakers move to the championship again to fight the Magic.

Thank you very much lady luck.

It's a 53 point gap from Haga to Spies. With seven rounds remaining that means Spies needs to average about 8 points more per weekend to catch Haga.

It's still a long shot, but much more manageable than the gap of 88 pts. coming into this weekend.

I think Ben will be folding Miller up and putting it in his pocket because it's most certainly his! As RawDawg said though, was it ever in doubt? Good on Fabrizio for keeping him honest in the second race, well, for a good bit of it anyway. Felt sorry for Leon, another podium was in his sights. Haga, after that horrendous crash, he did well. He's a little fighter, he'll be back.

Two things, what the 'rubber duck' was Hacker up to? Not content with hitting Parkes in the 1st race, he nearly killed Scassa in the 2nd! A bit over-exuberant me thinks. Also, anyone think Miller is, well, not the nicest looking place? A bit like a dusty ASDA's car park.

Miller isn't exactly pleasing to the eye with lush greenery but I think it's a pretty cool track (besides being in Utah). It's a nice flowing circuit that doesn't have a bunch of silly stop and squirt places.
