I was there, I witnessed it all. And I can say - WSBK is becoming the MotoGP tier 2. Ex-MotoGP riders at the front, bikes close to prototypes, MotoGP-like electronics and riding style. Where are the times of drifting fearless madmen from Australia, UK, USA and Japan? Where are the times when wild card riders could spice up the battles at the sharp end of the field? Modern WSBK is not bad, but it's sterile.

Modern WSBK is great, such as the battles like today. Not blame Biaggi, Checa and Melandri, they (and their bikes, never a top rider without a top bike of course) are simply better then the others.

Sure, everybody knows that the top SBK men will not fare very well at MotoGp (exception made for up and coming riders coming via SBK, like Spies), but who cares?
Great races like these are always welcome!
And just when italians are disappearing from the first places at Motogp, they are appear to starting to have a word at SBK.
Still, I very much hope Checa wins the championship as he is the underdog and doing irreprehensibly at that.

sure, put max biaggi or melandri in motogp and he would suck...
come on, are you out of your mind??
don't be so ridiculous,
rossi loses 2 sec per lap from dovizioso, do you think this has anything to do with talent?
just shut up.
