Milandri probably got the result he deserved and is probably not BM's pin up boy but Rea was a bit rough and I just feel gutted for Haslam.

Hi Mason,

Apologies for the apparent lack of coverage under the 'bikes' section, for whatever reason whenever results and race reports are classified as such when they are added, they don't appear under 'bikes', just under their respective results and race reports headers (apparently, there is a technical reason for this, but I am no expert!)

Since race day is mostly just results and reports, it makes things look unintentionally sp**** when viewed under that particular page. They show as normal under homepage and the specific WSBK/WSS channels.

Rest assured there will be plenty of reaction articles coming up this evening and tomorrow, which will show as normal (and refer to the blog for a bit of up-to-the-minute reaction/gossip/general musings from yours truly)

wtf men....how on earth do you argue that it was melandri's fault?????? I can accept that melandri is very optimistic and stubborn to lose the race but Rea is two times more stubborn and optimistic....melandri runs wide....and rea starts all the chaos...if he didn't try to steal( positive meaning) the win with such an agressive way nothing would have happened...and earlier on the race he had a tough touch with melandri and made him go wide....all he managed in the end was to steal the win but with a negative meaning...

Nice 1 Melandri you really couldnt bear the thought of your team mate (Haslam) winning a race fair & square so you do all you can to fk it up with bone head moves especially last corner, he was so far behind he had no hope of outbraking him yet he did it anyway, i don get it i really don't, BMW should have a word about racing etiquette with your team mate cause he just through away a fantastic double 1-2 because of EGO. completely idiotic..!
