If I understand correctly, for some people a guy like Xaus should be a great rider in that category.
He crashes himself out quicker than a beer turn to p1ss, he's ramming his opponents as if that was a video game.

An intimidating move is OK, but not if it ends in a DNF, in WSBK or in any motorsport category.

Whilst i did not see the incident at the time i saw the reaction of the riders immediately after the event and Johnny was not happy at all and Biaggi wasn't reacting to him. It looked like Biaggi had his shoulder slumped over and was taking the flak from Johnny.
Now i've seen what Biaggi is like when he feels he has been hard done by and there was none of that. He looked the guilty party based upon the evidence of both riders body language.

judging by the 'colourful' racing of Mr Rea over the last few years that he's been in world super bikes, he's in no position to make comments such as 'intimidating'.
Or maybe he should've been called Johnny 'dirty' Rea!!

I personally think Biaggi will say anything to keep him in the news whoever fault it was. He must be feeling pretty low always being in the shadow of Rossi for years, then Simoncelli overshadowed him and Imola and has ever since.

As good a team as Ten Kate is i think theyre operation is going backwards atm, even their supersport team is in decline. I just dont see Johnny Rea consistently fighting at the front without a greater factor presence (HRC maybe?).

As for the CBR itself its a good bike on its own with championships wins last year in British superbikes, Australian superbikes and IDM (german superbikes) and its always up there at the Isle of man TT. even in stock form it competes up the front in the Superstock 1000 championship against the likes of the more powerful BMW machine too so its not all bad. I just think that HRC defintely need to step in otherwise ten kate seem to have run out of ideas with the current bike, maybe theyre waiting for the all new bike to come out in 2012?

'Biaggi had his shoulder slumped over and was taking the flak from Johnny'

as biaggi had hurt his shoulder(even said thought he broke collar bone, i doubt he was much in the condition to be waving his hands.

all we know is that few corners before rea was quite far behind max. and rea is none for wild usually sideways lunges....

but impossible to say without footage. either way rea isnt really in any position
to point fingers. neither is max, but it isnt max wingeing on this occasion.

Cameras did capture a lot of it
around 6.35 for the Biaggi Rea incident.

Rea is NEVER is front of Biaggi, tough to say if Rea is close enough to hit Biaggi or if Biaggi just fell off of his own accord, whichever he didn't take Rea down.
