Maybe some word about the crashed riders should be taken. It was very annoying that at the start-crash there wasn't even a title who crashed, not a replay of the crash, which was very worrying. Same about Quarmby, WSB should learn from MotoGP in this way.

I hope no one's (badly) injured in the crashes. There was a lack of coverage %100.

I know Kenan is annoyed but what's important is he keeps gaping the 2nd placed man in the table and he's just done that today. He has won on the road the 3rd time in a row now. Put your money on him.

Poetic justice for Sofuoglu to lose a win in that way, but you have to ask whether Quarmby was that badly injured. He looked fine as he got out of the way of the middle of the track.

Comical to hear the confusion in the Eurosport commentary booth as to Foret getting the win. Just because Kenan lead for over a lap doesn't mean he lead the last lap completed by the entire field. I was watching on HD and it just cut straight from Day and Hodgson's confused commentary to the WSBK race start. Shoddy.

I believe that the rider that causes the red flag should not score points.They do this in speedway to stop riders taking a dive...Imagine if Foret had a small get off but left his bike lying in the middle of the track and gets a red flag...He could have won like this too,taking into account that the race would be counted back 2 laps

I would give the benefit of the doubt, perhaps he lept to his feet in a panic to get away from the oncoming bikes then realised he was hurt, he did go down hard.

Plus it was a very difficult place for the marshals to work in safety with the oncoming traffic and there was the possibility of a spillage so it was better to err on the side of caution.

Shut the hell up man. I was there. And I mean right where he crashed. I would like to see you do better in his situation.

He got up because there where bikes coming and he scrambled to get out of the way.
He was badly hurt as it took ages to get him off the track.
He got as far as he could and with the line the other bikes took to avoid the debris there was no need to go any further.

Like I said I was actually there. Where you?

If you weren't then you can't possibly know replay it not.

Yes he went to lie down. When he could see that he was out of direct danger.

If you can't see or understand that you're the dumb ads.
