If I evaluate Sunday from the point of view of top 3 riders in championship standings, I think winner is Biaggi. He started from 17th, finishing 4th and 8th. Sykes had bad luck (especially in first race) and loser is Checa - after Saturday he had clear advantage over Biaggi but he made an error in first race and then he made an error before race 2, because he chose bad tyres.

I am so sorry for Smrz (I am from Czech Republic). Laverty and both BWM guys can fight for podium.

This year Checa made so many mistakes (in PI and today) but he is still in championship fight thanks to great Ducati. If he will stop making mistakes it will be very difficult for all other riders!

Just thinking how if the Smurz incident had happened in Motogp with a backmarker, how everybody on here would have been screaming "ban the CRT's"
Just unlucky for Smurz that Aitchinson was trying to get out of his way and Smurz chose the same line.

Good race for Rea though, Melandri I think has just lost the will to fight.
