When will they ban that idiot Rea? I mean seriously, how many times he took off the track other riders? Over the years, starting with Haga@Nurburgring (or even earlier) and up to this day...countless times. And nobody cares...oh, he crashed into you...oh, 'racing incident'. That's not racing incident, that's disrespect to other riders.

Sykesy please repeat this in race 2! It would be nice to have a 3rd championship contender back in the game.
Btw agreed, Biaggi and Melandri were the luckiest racers today but I guess, it was not only luck after all, they kept their head cool and tried to finish first. I feel a bit dismal about Biaggi's 3rd place because of the obvious team order but who would not do that if the rival is coming up that fast as MM?!
Davies...man, you could have been the surprise of this weekend with a 3rd as well, didnt need to chase Melandri at all. :/

The race hasn't aired in the states yet, so all I have to go off are the crash.net reports, but Haslam must've been pretty impressive to have fallen from the bike and still managed a 6th place. Sounds like a dramatic race all around, good to see the competetion at the top getting tighter
