Bayliss takes stunning home win.

After the race Biaggi said, “We have had a problem since Friday, I don't feel comfortable on the bike especially on the bumps. I got a good start but I need to fix something on the bike but not too much. I need more speed but I had fun with Haga and Troy Corser. Third is better than fourth but I want to do better.”

Toseland admitted he had nothing left once Bayliss came by, “I controlled the race and was waiting for the gap, and I kept watching my board and it said plus zero. He came passed me and I pushed one hundred percent but he gapped me.”

Bayliss was his usual chirpy self commenting, “That was a good race for everyone except the other riders! James was fast from the start and I was kept busy with Troy Corser so by the time I looked at my board there were eight laps to go. I showed him a wheel and let him hear I was still there. He covered his lines well and I tried round the outside, but then he moved more to the middle of the track so I went up the inside. My tyres were gone and next time I'll leave it longer.”
