Not what I'd have predicted a week ago.

Podiums yeah, but the double?

Way impressive.

In other news, where've the threads following the first race vanished to?

If I were the 4 cylinder guys,I'd demand that either Duc lose 100cc or we all be given 100cc for next season or we will all stay home and you can have Carlos followed by several clowns all riding the same thing for your series.If Troy B. came out of retirement and jumped back on the Duc as it is right now,he would run off and hide,perhaps even lapping the entire field on this bike.I am not slamming Carlos,he has always been a good rider.But this is nuts.GF

Should they disqualify other Ducati because get beaten by other bike?

What is this joke SBK championship? Only Japanese bike allowed to win?

Yes, Ducati has a big advantage named Carlos Checa who had his peak moment in his racing career as he get older.

Ducati should hand this bike over to Rossi and ask him to test the GP11.98

It's got to be better than that nail they're currently flogging round the MotoGP circus
