4th was as good as the bike could do and thats what he did. this time last year he would of probably made an error and finished 7th.

keep getting the points and then the wins will follow

pcxmac there is more to a bike than a bit of grunt. ask rossi, that ducati has plenty of power.

u spend more time breaking, turning, and laying down the power than u ever do it at your top end. And its those other 3 areas the ducai is hands down better than the aprillia.

You could see the thing snapping away at him all day long. id say it was geared short due there not being to many straights which was making it very snatchy. The bmw looked to be using its power in a much more subtle way.

"Biaggi cut a fairly anonymous figure throughout the weekend"

Battling for the lead and finishin 6.5 seconds and 3.3 seconds off the win is hardly anonymous !

Max has never been outstandingly quick on the V4 at Imola. He might just be glad to have come away with two 4th places. The problem that he faces now though is that it's not just Checa he needs to worry about. Sykes looks like he'll be quick most weekends now and even if he doesn't win a race he'll affect the title race by taking points away from him and the BMWs will be also in contention at some circuits as well. The Aprilia guys have got good reason to be concerned I think.
