Congrats to #41 for a great weekend and a great podium in race 1. Race 2 was just amazing to watch when your a fan, all up to the round where he crashed.
Nori had diserved better, but racing is racing, and anyway a great performace that in my eyes proves his still up there.
Looking forward to the next rounds....GO #41

never been a huge fan though always respected his racing skills, but i was devastated when he crashed. really gutted for him. He rode brilliantly. Good to see someone aside from max doing well on the RSV4.

Hopefully he can continue these performances for remainder of season.

My heart sunk when i saw his bike lying there... I'm a huge fan and love watching him race... who doesn't... the 2nd race showed how much of a class act he still is, the rain levels everything out and he was miles ahead, i hope he can win sometime this season and this hasn't knocked his confidence and he'll get a better ride next season.... GO NITRO NORI!!!

I'd have posted sooner but it's taken me this long to stop crying!
Seriously though...Just cos Kawasaki need a win does Nori really have to come off when miles ahead?
Last Kwak win was Walker in the wet at Assen and who had romped away from the field...was untouchable? Yes poor Nori.
Let's hope we see some more of the same from the man from Japan in the last couple of races.
Go #41!
