WSBK » Melandri denies Smrz for maiden WSBK win


Smrz led into the final two laps but would fall prey to a charging Melandri as he took victory from ninth position on the grid.

Great see Marco scythe past Biaggi and take a well deserved win. Best revenge is success. Biaggi's always been a dirty rider and an arrogant figlio di puttana.

For me there was probably only one thing that would make up for any Brits not making the podium, was to see Melandri stick one over Biaggi im true style

Great race for Melandri, really well done, whereas Biaggi was absolutely bloody awful. Checa was having a right old stinker earlier on as well but got himself a podium somehow

Got to feel sorry for Smrz but what a great ride from him.

Hope Laverty is okay

What on earth was was going on with Berger, I imagine that a mechanic was urgently scouring the garage floor for stray R clips before he got back there.

Nice ride Marco! That was a schooling to Biaggi, no wonder he tried to balk you in Superpole, obvious you have the speed.

First time I ever seen a rear wheel dislodge at a race!! That was scary.

Brilliant 1st race, cannot wait for the second!!

Seeing all these ex-MotoGP riders doing so well in SBK is kinda sad in my opinion. Back in the days of 500cc one could just say "well they are different sports", 2-stroke vs 4-stroke riders. Kinda like 100m vs 200m sprinters.

However now with these MotoGP retirees dominating the sport, one can only conclude that SBK riders are not as good a MotoGP riders. However this is partly, because the best SBK riders instantly get a ride in MotoGP :)

With this win Marco is now my favorite for the title.

hahahaha take that Biaggi, they showed footage of him slapping Melandri on eurosport's pre-race coverage what a terrible sport , shows him up as a dirty little devil that he is, tries to intimidate riders with these petty tactics when he cant do it on the bike , as Melandri said "This is not the behaviour of a world champion" i strongly concur !
Melandri is doing just like i predicted he would do, the boy is pure fire on a 1000cc as he was on the 990's im laughing in the faces of you punks that put Laverty ahead of him on pre-season testing, Take that punks POW !!!! You lot laughed when i said Melandri would be winning from the outset !

Gutted for Tom Sykes the lad deserved it he was trying so hard

I dont know what happened to Haga he lost pace after setting the fastest lap when he had that excursion with Camier ......
