Yes his second place in race 2 was lucky. But i found his performace solid and he beat sykes fair. It will be a long season but if biaggi can be steady then he could walk away with it this year

He was actually lucky to finish race 2. He nearly had the same accident as Haslam after going a touch wide through the loop on the last lap. Rea was lucky not have had him off there, poor Leon wasn't so lucky!

I think it's becoming clear that Max has been making up for the RSV4's weak points. It always looks like a nervous, flighty little bike and with the other 4 cylinder bikes matching or exceeding it's once decisive engine and being better through the bends, Max is defintely having to work his his Euros this year!

i still think this championship is a two horse race between biaggi and checa,although bm,kawa and honda have joined the fight and although they have quick riders they are just crash or burn riders,who dont want to settle for second which you need to do if you havent the set up and are looking to win the title.if melandri had settled for second how much better would his and haslems positions be today.

I agree with everyone on the fact that Biaggi skill is definately making up for the bikes weaknesses but, he can't breathe at all really because Sykes is only 5 points away right now and if he can get to the point where he can keep the ZX-10R out front over a whole race distance, this championship is over. With the way things have been going for Sykes this year, it's only a matter of time before they make that step that will keep them at the top so, Biaggi better make the best of things while he can. Beating Sykes fair and square is good "today" but can he continue to do it?

He was six points ahead of Sykes, but only two points ahead of Checa coming into the weekend, so while Sykes closed slightly, his lead over the man in second place is actually larger
