Controversy abounds in Monza after HM Plant Ducati rider Neil Hodgson revealed that he thought he had won the race as Bayliss and Edwards should have incurred a penalty.

"I've got to be totally honest; I thought I'd won the race. In practice Colin Wright came round with a memo and said if you ever cut the chicane there's a ten second penalty" Hodgson said post race.

And cut the chicane was what both Troy Bayliss and Colin Edwards did. Taking the memo at face value, Hodgson believed his race for the lead to have been with eventual fourth placed man, Chili.

"When I saw these two [Bayliss and Edwards] cut the chicane I smiled to myself" Hodgson said post race.

An appeal is sure to follow. Watch this space.
