great race :)

Motogp is v.poor at the moment but if you put JLo or Stoner in WSBKs theyd just ride off into the distance and win every race just like motogp.

And again people are slagging off MotoGP based on a WSBK race. Can't you just call yourself a racing fan and enjoy both? For different reasons. This was very entertaining with a great winner. WSBK is doing very well right now.

That has nothing to do with MotoGP which will always be the premier class. Ask any of these riders and they would even jump on a MotoGP Ducati given the chance.

MotoGP has better riders at the front though - Biaggi, Melandri and Checa were all left behind by Rossi and Stoner in recent years. There are some real chancers on some of the CRT bikes though.

good effort from rea for the brit fans,from being so far back and down and out,hes about the only brit with any fight in him. as usual sykes and haslam,when they get passed,they just fold, like a sheet of paper,they just dont mix it up,rea fights it out and gives 110%,wish rea was on one of those rocketship bikes,bmws or kawasakis

What a thrilling race, I am amazed that there were so few fallers.

As to eurosport, the commentators are fine but what really winds me up is when the riders come across the finishing line, after the first group crosses it the TV director switches to people leaping up and down in the pits and we miss the action on the track. In SS 1000 we missed the battle for 2nd and 3rd then in SBK 1 we missed the battle for 5th onwards. I for one am sick of missing the action because of pictures of wives, girlfriends and assorted hangers on.
