I can't believe Max has the chutzpah to say this after his fortunate break from race 1. He's made himself look like a feeble, embittered old man - I jut hope his advice to the organisers didn't contribute to the cancellation of race 1.

You got LUCKY!!! The first race (WHICH HE WOULDN'T HAVE STARTED HAD IT BEEN RESTARTED) was Sykes almost certainly. Checa would've probably got a top 6 in those conditions, passing Max had it happened.

Had race two gone all the way, Sykes would've extended that lead as he would have DEFINITELY won. So no Max, you missed no "opportunity).

facts are he wouldnt have made any race one restart and in race two checa was gaining all the time less than a second behind. these are facts and only foolish fanboys will disagree.

@ pcxmac

Unfortunately your comment makes you sound like a bit of a "fan boy".

I'm not disrespecting Max, as he's one of the best riders I've watched over the years. BUT, let's be honest, he's not the "nicest" of guys, and considering the times I've seen him INTENTIONALLY get in the way of people on flying laps, I do doubt he would've helped someone else back to the pits. I mean, last year at Donnington he blocked HIS OWN TEAM MATE!!!

LOVING how close it is at the top though. Still 8 riders, I reckon, that are still in it.

I will agree with you there. He is the "bad boy" of WSBK in the press' eye.

However, at PI, Sykes was ahead and had the racing line, so I guess Max hit him.
But that's not got anything to do with this thread. At the end, he would not have started race 1 had it restarted. And Had they got a full race in, I believe Sykes would've had to have been the favourite, considering the lead he pulled. I am (OBVIOUSLY) a Sykes supporter, and he has gotten an equally hard time from the press since '09 (Only really getting praise this year)

Max is awesome, I saw him here at Kyalami and he was gr8 to watch, and I actually like the amount of black flags he's had in his carreer (shows he believes in what he does and will ride it out and face the consequences instead of take the ride-through).

We all have our riders/teams we support, and I respect anyone's opinion as long as it has a valid point.
