I see no one's interested in poor JR I thought he did quite well he was going good in race 1 didn't see him grab hand full of throttle just doing his usual round perhaps a little faster.

JR was exceptional today and it should have been a 1-2 finish for him. His (10 second lead) crash was an expensive and embarrassing lesson, but it will pay for itself at some point in the future.

WSBK was just incredible this year.

After two non incident races in moto gp here we have jr not thinging of a finish in race one and with a 8 or 10 second lead a rider of his experence should have brought the blade home in first position.
For me , the jury is out as to weather he can win this championship for honda in the future.

amcraponabike ---- the name says it all! Jealousy again! Rea made a race mistake in race one under difficult track conditions and rode well in race two to a second place-- if I had a team I would be pretty happy if my rider did that! Maybe he should have done like his team mate and just quit in the conditions! Just makes the aged blade look good by over riding it.

And so did three world champions Checa, Biaggi and Melandri along with many others so why single out Rea for critisism, get off the bandwagon.
