Still looking for his second legitimate win for the team. Maybe he should have held up his hand to have the race stopped. Big traction advantage on Sylvain's Aprilia powering out of the turns, Tom looked second hand most of the second race, damage limitation.

Sylvain's two biggest weaknesses, he can get a head of himself, and he doesnt have that 'fighting' spirit. Guys like Melandri, Rea and Sykes will eat him up for breakfast, lunch and dinner. If they are happy enough with their bikes.

Lots of talk,from a guy whos just dumped his super fast bike up the track,did he forget that when conditions equal things out a little,rea would just eat everybodys lunch at will,a bit of a numpty comment from the guy who was on his butt,a long way from the finish line, (heres jonny), zoom

re: "Guintoli says he is 'angry' about the tumble, pointing out that his pace on a damaged bike coming through traffic was proof that he would have had the speed to make it a double."

I believe you. not that it would have been legal, but I was hoping they would've just gone ahead and gave it to you when you put your hand up. screw it, you had 'em "taped and measured". let's wrap this and load the lorries for Italy. fwiw, on my screen it was lap 4, not lap 2.

Naw naw ,I disagree,theres no proof at all he would have won it,sure he was going up the order,but if he cudda got up to the leaders? Whos to say rea ,lowes etc,would not just have upped the pace, as needed to win anyhow. Sure he crashed tryin to match their early pace, in the first place.the guys a bit of a whinge,sour grapes,he won a race last year,his team mate won nine ! And he whinged then as well, not a good sport I reckon

Agreed.

Was happy for him to be upgraded from the Effembert joke of a team, but haven't seen him consistently capitalize on it. Just don't see the "fire".
