And that my friends is what happens when you have one guy with pace whose bat **** crazy, a guy pretending to not have pace, and another guy trying to get the most points he can.

Sam looking away at the press conference when asked about his superior pace had to be tops though. Hope those Kawasaki's get some good pace and can keep Sam more honest.

I wonder if Mahi racing will be testing ohlins suspension tomorrow?

Could it just be that Sam is out-riding Kenan this year? Four wins in a row aren't by fluke and he's worked flippin' hard to win at Portimao, Monza and Assen! Fully deserved wins!

Fantastic racing from all 4 (though Foret was occasionally lunging with more luck than judgement at times!).

van der Mark deserved a podium at least there, fantastic charge from absolutely nowhere!

Another fantastic ride from Lowes, who is looking ever more like a champion elect.

Whatever happens in the championship though, I hope that Sam moves out of WSS and onto a competitive ride in Moto2 or WSBK next year. He's too bright a talent to stay where he is.

U remember how they a couple years ago brang back an R6 from a couple years back, with little updates and destoryed the opposition again? Maybe this is the same bike still? Anyone know? hehe.

Its pretty clear Sam has 1/2+ pace in that bike, I think Kenan only stood a chance at PI cause they tested there enough to get a good setup, whats clear is that bike comes out of the gates faster than anything else, Sam is just sitting and grinning the whole race because he doesnt even have to worry about trying to hard.

Not saying Sam isn't fast, but this year will be a walk in the park for him unless Kawasaki figure out how to get their bikes up to par, which looks to be about 7/10's of a second faster at least.

I also think its safe to assume Yamaha really only have their eye on Sam, and the other R6's outside of Yachnik are privateer efforts. WSS this year is like one motogp Prototype vs a bunch of satellite bikes, its not very fun to watch. I am sure Sam will play to the fans as much as he can, but its pretty obvious when you look at how easy it is for him to just dally around and wait to win it.

bat **** crazy = Foret.
