Great ride from Eugene.
Sofuoglu - what he was doing? He was fast but those passes were horrible. Not a champ ride definitely.
Lascorz ok. Stayed cold headed and well deserved 2nd position.
Shame that Pirro made a mistake because we could see a really tough fight for the podium. Both Gino and Michele were fast.
And Tamburini is a DUDE!

Well done to Eugene on another sublime win.

Kenan clearly had the pace to go with him all the way, but really lacked the racecraft today. There's no other way to explain him closing a +2 sec. gap to Lascorz in a matter of few laps (and he did it twice !) but struggle to overtake.

The traction control / engine braking may be playing a part in this. Kenan says people think it's his style but the rear stepping out everytime he goes for a late braking move is because of the electronics package causing extreme engine braking skidding the rear - which he says he's trying to avoid like plague. They did test some new electronic stuff on the bike @ assen but apparently it doesn't work as expected

FGSport should discipline Torpedo Superglue.


I'm all for close racing and wild passes but like Ben Spies says what the point of such a stupid move if you don't have the bike (at the moment) to make it work?


He was obviously on "pass or crash" mode. :rolleyes:
