Biaggi holds off Haslam for victory

BMW rounded out the top ten for a solid result, although Troy Corser will be disappointed to finish ninth after a feisty first few laps saw him challenging for the podium early on.

Outside the top ten, Michel Fabrizio made only marginal progress up the order from 17th on the grid, the Italian looking out-of-sorts as he experienced an off-track moment on the way to 11th.

Lorenzo Lanzi finished 12th on the DFX Ducati, ahead of Sylvain Guintoli, who endured a scary moment early on when he ran off the circuit at high-speed, the Frenchman lucky not to fall, even if it did leave him at the back of the field.

Behind the recovering Crutchlow, Tom Sykes scored the 15th and final point for Kawasaki, albeit only after Andrew Pitt tumbled out of the position in the closing laps.

What was dissapointing was watching Cal crash at least he remounted and got a couple of points but well done to JT for the effort to ride to 7th despite having a broken hand with pain killing injections hope to see one of the R1s on the podium in race two.

Amazing race by Biaggi congrats. Jeez how misleading is qualifying and practice i mean who wouldve thought?? I thought Cal wouldve dominated. Just goes to show how great a championship this is any 8 riders could win this Big thumbs up for my boy Rea!!! down in 12th then stormed back to 3rd. Yea cal dropped it in the end but still a stunniing come back to be on the podium. Seems to me his weakness is the starts :p
