Preview - Monza.

The most successful rider of all time at Monza is Troy Bayliss, with six wins to his name, followed by a trio on four made up of Pierfrancesco Chili, Carl Fogarty and Fabrizio Pirovano.

Amongst current SBK riders, the most successful is Noriyuki Haga on 3, followed by Regis Laconi on 2 and Max Neukirchner on 1. In the manufacturers ranking, Ducati leads the way with 17 wins, followed by Yamaha (7), Honda (6), Suzuki (3) and Kawasaki (1).

Meanwhile, the World Supersport Championship is enjoying a thrilling season, with the title top three of Cal Crutchlow (Yamaha World Supersport), Eugene Laverty (Parkalgar Honda) and Kenan Sofuoglu (Hannspree Ten Kate Honda) separated by just nine points.

But there are numerous other contenders for victory, including reigning champion Andrew Pitt (Hannspree Ten Kate Honda), plus Anthony West (Stiggy Racing Honda), Fabien Foret (Yamaha World Supersport) and Joan Lascorz (Kawasaki Provec), one of the most interesting youngsters around in Supersport.

They could be joined by Michele Pirro (Yamaha Lorenzini), the most competitive Italian at the moment. Pirro won the domestic championship CIV race at Monza on Sunday and has fully recovered from his crash at Assen.

The new Hockenheim sucks balls!!!!!!! They butched the track to keep the F1 a-holes happy and now they are in a position to not even host the F1 race every year. What a bunch of dopes. They have ruined a great historic and iconic track for jack s***t in return. They are morons I tell you. It would have been wonderful to hear a 200hp bike blasting through the forrest.

Monza rarely fails to deliver, cant wait! It'll be interesting to see if anyone can split Spies & Haga. What can Haslam & Neukircher do? Will Aprilia get into the mix at Biaggis' home race? Would be great if these four, or five took the battle into parabolica on the last lap. Bring back Hockenheim!
