Just a maximum of 12.5 points are awarded after a frustrating race day at Monza, but sole winner Tom Sykes makes gains nonetheless.

I don't blame God, I blame Pirelli for not bringing suitable tyres and the organisers for a shambles of a day. If the sponsors are unhappy they may now lose teams to Moto2 or CRT - if so Pirelli and the organisers only have themselves to blame.

Don't forget, your two riders at the front of the grid were MORE THAN HAPPY to go racing!!!

And it's not like it was just Ducs.

I think it is important to give the riders a say, but not, I repeat NOT to give them executive decision over what happens on the day. Guintoli, Sykes, AND THE FANS were robbed. They could have held a wet race in race 1. The heavens opened not 5mins after they abandoned the grid and the tyres would've been just fine in those conditions. Sykes should have led the championship from Checa after this round with Haslam and Melandri and Rea closing in on The 2 Italian bikes at the front. In fact, Guintoli would've been right back up there too!

TERRIBLE ORGANISING, you can't square the blame on Pirelli alone.
