WTF from Sykes? I thought he was supposed to be concertrating on race pace over the practice sessions instead of these one lap wonders. Tom was given incredible gifts from both of his championship rivals and he couldn't even get himself onto the podium at least once.

Not good. not good at all. Tom didn't just look a gift horse in the mouth he ended up giving it a slap.

Tough stuff for Biaggi and Marco, but damn if it doesn't make the series better for it. Win for Chaz, Sykes closer to the points lead and the top two only have four races to sort out the championship. Win, win and win.

What nonsense Harsh Truth! Laverty rode two fantastic races and showed Chaz the way home in race 1. If he hadn't been shunted off track in race 2 I think he would have been a strong contender for the win. He did brilliantly to fight back to finish in 2nd. Chaz is a good rider but Laverty has the edge on him. Just check the championship table for proof!

Mmmmn fergy hardly showed chaz the way home in race 1. 1 tenth.... get a grip! Think you are forgetting Laverty is on a FACTORY bike & chaz is on a PRIVATE bike plus The Truth.... how is this not a shock win for Davies. First year in superbikes, privateer team etc etc. Are you watching the same as me???? Chaz did a fantastic job today, as did Eugene & Camier..... rest were numpties

Laverty hasn't done a bad job, but the fact is recently Chaz has been consistently outperforming on a satellite bike and now has won a race before Laverty in what is only his first season in WSBK.

Lets not forget, Laverty was expected to be a title contender not a podium contender, and if I was the Aprilia boss I would rather have Davies than Laverty- in my opinion Davies has more potential on the Aprilia.

If what Don-R says is true about Davies possibly signing for BMW then Aprilia have missed a trick.
