Laverty stuns with double after Biaggi penalty

Though BMW's hopes of victory were hit by Haslam's first corner retirement, Troy Corser brought home some good points in fifth position, the Australian backed by Ayrton Badovini, who put in an exceptional ride on the satellite 'Italia' machine to claim sixth – the third round in succession that he has improved his personal best result.

Still, he and seventh place Sylvain Guintoli did have some fortune after inheriting positions from Checa in the final metres after the Althea Ducati slowed with a suspected puncture, the Spaniard nonetheless holding on to cross the line in tenth.

Appropriately enough, his problems allowed Biaggi to finish ahead in eighth position, ensuring he leaves Monza having reduced Checa's margin by 15 points to a more manageable 28.

Joan Lascorz brought some smiles to Kawasaki with a top ten finish in ninth, while all 15 finishers scored points in the order of Tom Sykes, Ruben Xaus, Roberto Rolfo, Mark Aitchison and Fabrizio Lai.

Biaggi was cruising to the win but couldn't be bothered to follow the rules given to all riders at the beginning of the weekend. Haga and Haslam both went to the left-hand side of the run-off within the white lines, but Max couldn't be bothered and dropped almost 20 points that he could've caught Checa with. My heart pumps p155 for the Roman dwarf. Rea, Haslam and Smrz were unlucky after Checa clipped Rea and started the traditional Monza first-lap mayhem that we've become accustomed to. I thought that incident had cost Eugene a podium chance, never mind the win, but he didn't panic and showed what a class act he is.

Biaggi still manages to finish in front of Checa even after that ride through penalty. Ah... Life is not fair sometimes. Anyway Aprilia & tried to cheat! Karma is a b1tch. Great day for Team Yamaha Italia & Team GBR... They cleaned up!
