Congrats to Max, but supremely gutted for the Grinner! However, let's not forget that MotoGP could still take some lessons from WSBK & BSB when it comes to close racing & results. Looking forward to next season already!!

so gutted for tom, was on the edge of my seat and threw my coffee all over me when max fell off! max rode like an auto66 rookie in race one, but like a champion in race two, tom rode superbly all weekend, next year tom will have it, been a tom fan for years now and its great to see him up top. only 0.5 points deciding the championship is crule, monza really did decide the championship in the end, the rule makers need to take note and be fair. a race is a race, full distance or not.

Another one of those sporting "results" that will be contested by fans forever, just like the 1966 Monte Carlo rally. Many fans will remember that as a Mini 1-2-3 with the leading french car in fifth. The official result was of course that the Citroen won, but many fans will always remember it at a Mini win. Likewise this year's WSBK plenty of fans will remember Sykes as the winner no matter what the record books say. This sort of thing is a shame for both riders and for the sport in general.

@Baznap "a race is a race, full distance or not." Absolutely spot on, however I think Sykes and Kawasaki should have appealed that result at the time and taken it to arbitration if necessary. I'll bet they're wishing they did now.

Max Biaggi has to be the luckiest rider in WSB . Yes we know who the real Champion is. Gutted to see Tom ride so well and still be Denied . After this i must say that i think i watch Moto GP because of my addiction to Motorbikes . Moto GP doesn't even come close . I now have till next weekend to recover in time for BSB .

I can't get over the fact that Biaggi's four crashes were all self-inflicted, where as Sykes lost all of his points through no fault of his own.

Well done to Biaggi, but just think if that second Monza race had started on time and they completed the 2 or 3 extra laps they need for the race to be declared full points.

Arrrgghhh!! It's just not fair :-P

So Crash, you remove my comment (which wasnt derogatory or offensive) simply because it pointed out your mistake

Very grown up

More than likely this will get removed too, but at least everyone who sees it until that happens will be made aware what a petty, small outfit this is

Sykes was great and should be champion in the future but the real champion is Biaggi. That's it.

Monza was unfortunate but if it hadn't been stopped Max might well have finished second. It wasn't stopped to hurt anyone's championship.
