Yes, props to Melandri for running to see what happened to Checa.

I'm hopping he's back in shape soon. He sure adds flavor to the competition at the front.

Good to see Marco competitive, Aprilia looked like they had Island wrapped up but he managed to break the strangle hold, looks like he will have a tough time of the championship, but better opportunities in the coming rounds.

What an impressive start to the WSBK season. Prior to the accident, I believe he had the pass be in between the two Aprilia's or win. Real class to run over and check on Checa and real guts to race in race 2 and almost pull off second place. Get well Marco!!!

Great to have motorcycle racing again,its been a long winter.

Negatives: poor camera production,they focused on the winner and ignored everyone else crossing the line,the number of starters and worst of all,the post race interviews
