Brett, you're playing a dangerous game by running so high up the front! This joke of a team will probably sack you now, like they did with their 3 other decent riders :)

He was unbelievable, battling with Biaggi and Checa in race 1 in the tricky conditions. His speed in the dry race 2 was equally impressive. He has talent, that's for sure. And there's some truth in Phil Price's words.

GG Man great ride=).. Speacly because he had such a bad momente with the injury that was a pity, but now worcking for better, i just wonder how much time he will stay on this Team, For me they run out of money and have to discard the best riders and most expensive 4sure.. Anyway is good top see a Canadian rider on the grid is not very often
but this guy has talente..

This is certainly great for Canada, I can't think of any rider besides Miguel Duhamel who made it into the highest levels of motorcycle racing in recent years. To compete with Checa on a circuit he's never been before and with probably not-so-good machinery is a stunning achievement. Hope he stays in the WSBK next year.

He should have knocked Checa off in race 1 as revenge for Checa knocking him off earlier in the season that led to his bad injury and which went unpunished.

I like his helmet. Hope he is back next year, he has talent but job security is not guarnteed within his team. At least with this recent good results, other teams may consider him if he's dropped.

I've watched this guy race in canada for years and knew he was good,I was never sure how he would do on the Bigger courses as most of ours are short bumpy tracks,auto racing of any kind is not big business in canada therefor our tracks are in pretty bad shape.I think if he had not been hurt for most of the season he may even be a bit stronger.Hope he can land a ride for next season!

re: "Race one was fantastic, to be in the top five was really exciting, I have no words to describe the happiness of the moment, McCormick, who went on to finish ninth in race two, said. The bike was working very well and I had a good feeling, I was very fast."

queue the P45.
