Max's fight for third was a great demonstration of his will to win this year, didn't have the tires to get the bike up to Eugene, but had enough something to come back at Leon. Stark difference to him relenting in the previous rounds, great to witness.

WSS might have had some good moments too, never got to see it tho.

Unbelievable breakthrough weekend for McCormick!! He was down over 20km per hr on most of his competitors and they were blowing by him on the straight like he was standing still, but he put in a gutsy and mature ride to hound the likes of Biaggi, Checa, and Rea. The best moment of the weekend for me was his re-pass on Johnny Rea in the 3rd last corner of the last lap and outdragging of Rea to the line for 5th in the first race!! I think he opened a lot of eyes this weekend with that performance.

Crash mentioned Brett McCormick in their article, but then missed him off the voting options - result that I had to vote other.

I hope McCormick gets signed by a good team for 2013 as I think he has shown his potential as a rider is very high. What a shame he missed much of the season due to the unfortunate incident with Checa.

Biaggi was outstanding as was Sykes. Shame we didn't see the WSS because it sounds like that was a good race.

A big up also for Bryan Staring who won the SSTK race for Pedercini Kawasaki - I also hope he gets a good ride for 2013 as he is another big talent with a bright future.

I used to watch McCormick race way back when he was actually just a "kid". You just knew he'd be someone to watch out for in the future. I voted "other" and that goes to Brett - great job!
