Dirty Sofuoglu has run into many, many, riders. There are a lot of riders who could find more success if they rode around with the lack of regard for others that Kenan does. Definately not "the peoples champion". Just a champion.

Glad to see Sofuoglu get a penalty. Up to his usual tricks. Anyone does that to him and he throws his tantrums all over the place. About time someone took him to one side and gave him a thumping.

Well done Dan (From my home town of Wetherby and Harrogate), Well done Sam and well done Jules. All good guys with a sense of knowing how to behave.

I think it was handled well by Race Control, or whoever it was who made the decision so quickly to penalise Sofuoglu. Minimal interference with the results is important however if you can't get past another rider without knocking them off then you don't deserve the position

Apart from the Simon incident last year which was inevitable due to Simon braking too hard too late when was actually the last time Kenan "supposedly" crashed in to a rider and made them crash?

I'll tell you when, it's been a damn long time probably 4-5 years or more. Kenan brings excitement, colour and flare to the race. I will never forget the 2 passes he made on Crutchlow and Laverty to get from 3rd to 1st on the last lap and win the race in the 09 Miller US race.

He made a rash pass, he got penalised, karma did its job and Dan got his maiden podium finish.

To all the Kenan haters build a bridge, let water underneath it, cross it and get over it. These guys put their bodies on the line to provide us entertainment.

queue the mindless spam .... Kenan hasnt taken anyone out for a long time so far as I can remember. Simon f*ked it up and Kenan could not move out quick enough, after that, I cant remember.

Kenan has made some 'exciting' moves on track this year, and so far as I know hes paid the price for everyone that was over the line. Crashing in to Dan was probably the lowest point I have seen Kenan this year, and good for the stewards for getting Dan back on the podium and keeping that bit of bad karma floating around.

Sofuoglu - How many times are they gonna let him deliberately take other riders out! He is gonna seriously hurt someone one day! He deserves all he gets. He's a dirty rider and just proved it yet again.

just sour grapes, Kenan didnt really measure up well this race, but hopefully this inspires him to be a better rider next year and try not to get so many penalties, would have won the championship a round earlier had he kept it really clean.

Not that I'm defending that crap attempt to pass Linfoot, but can the Sofuoglu haters please list me all the times that Kenan has taken another rider out. And when I say taken out, I mean physically knocking the rider off the bike and to the deck, I'm not talking about what you might perceive to be a 'dirty' pass or overtly aggressive pass.

Not including today I can only remember Simon in Moto2, and telemetry proved that the cause of the accident was Simon anchoring up too quickly.

At least "Slugger" Sofuoglu's behaviour is getting better. In this race he made absolutely no attempt to punch another rider whilst travelling flat out alongside him. I still think his licence should be revoked though.
