yes! great racing from many riders and teams today. fascinating races with plenty of twists and turns -quite literally- in the story proving why a motivated rider and decent private team can be rewarded for their efforts with wins and podiums... wsbk is an excellent series with top riders from or heading to motogp, the best of bsb and sometimes ama. i enjoy the melting pot of talent it offers up for our entertainment because over recent yrs it has become more credible when compared to the premier status of motogp. the best wsbk riders are not second rate simply because they don't have seat in motogp!

rides of the day for me... max in race one (real skill and nerve overtaking in the wet like he did and making up positions from a bad grid position and setup), and jonny in race 2 (although he continues to crash more than he should) who i felt would be a contender anyway. checa and or his team should surely be wearing a set of rubbery comedy male genitals strapped to their or his head for the gaff in selecting a wet tyre *lol*... chaz fell, but showed great promise on his private rsv4 which is what i was hoping for from the team, not simply making up the numbers.

Northern Ireland should be so proud of these 2 great world class riders, Rea for his outstanding win and Laverty for his 14th grid start to a 5th and 3rd, although it could have been 2 3rd's if Biaggi hadn't have seen red in race 1.
