Replay the races Eugene, corner entry was your problem.

Dwell on a top speed problem and you'll not sort out what actually WAS the problem.

Hope you get sorted and get onto the podium soon.

@Assen 03 - yes the Yamaha of Melandri did look as fast as Biaggis bike, but based on how loose it was on corner entry it looked like he was having to ride it harder.

@What was wrong - if Laverty thinks he had a power / speed problem - in the absence of any info to the contrary I would beleive him. he lost ground early on and late in the race was running the same lap times as the top two.

Whatever the problem - considering he had only ridden 250's and 600's until this year I think he has exceeded my expectations even though he has not exceeded his own.
