Some excellent onboard camera work - especially the Badovini / Sykes / Rea battle.

Interesting that Lascorz was able to pass Haslam on the straight and Badovini was able to pass Sykes on the straight - the B team BMW looked faster than the full factory one (apparently BMW Italia do their own engine work - perhaps Haslam had wrecked his tyres?).

Nice to see Camier stay on the bikes and get a good result.

great ride by checa he is an amazing rider and top bloke.

so it appears rea fell of and the bike collected to max, which seems more likely as just prior to the accident rea was quite far behind max.

still hard to say without footage. but it was getting a tad tedious that the commentators kept saying 'dangerous move' then openly admitted like the rest of us that they had not seen it?????????????????????????????? makes your wonder what their agenda is??? odd!

also great ride from Leon. well done!!!

It appears that all commentators are becoming completely biased towards riders/drivers of there own country e.g. Motogp with cal, WSBK with all of the Brits and worst of all F1 with there constant Button, Hamilton, DiResta!!! its pretty annoying as yes i follow my own country riders but im a fan of who i have been a fan of for years and also the commentators seem to be turning on anyone who is racy and like to overtake!!!

SuperSic/ Simoncelli

and well koba is the only other to overtake but he is a perfectionist =3

anyhow what im saying is most commentators are biased and no longer commentate for the racing but there own pleasure asif they're with there mates :)

King Carlos came good today as expected.

Nice to see Fabrizio able to get up from being taken out in race 1 to have a good result in race 2.

Aprilia didn't get the win but both bikes on the podium is a great consolation.

Good riding by Badovini and a good day for the BMW Italia team by beating the factory squad in both races. Hopefully Ze Germans won't make their go fast parts disappear.

Watched The British Eurosport commentary where Neil Hodgson didn't even notice that JT was not racing in the second race until 7 laps from the end. great skill Neil !! LOL

despite the triumph over adversity of the mean spiritedly handicapped non factory ducati of carlos checa (who rode solidly to be fair), i actually enjoyed both races (maxi crash excepting of course)... poor old jonny on the uncompetitive honda: a heroic effort in race 2 -man of the race for me- and badovini in race 1 (should have corsers' seat who was useless as usual)... also impressed with max getting past laverty up to 3rd, but i always expected camier to be a bit better judging from qualifying, unless max was on his tail from start, which he wasn't... the track punishes those who are not up front from the very first lap!

According to MotoUSA, "Max's take is Rea crashed into him. Just chatted with Rea in Castrol garage. Says he stood up bike Pedrosa-style after getting Simoncelli'd."

Re commentary bias. Are you seriously suggesting to me that Spanish TV commentary are not going to show any bias towards Checa???? And Italian likewise etc etc.
