Rea was making some strong passes. In the last one, I think it was an accident, nobody was at fault.

Johnny had to have the inside line and melandri dropped in on him and lost it. I feel bad for poor Tom Sykes. Dude has been nailing poles but can't get his tires to last race distance.

It could all end in tears!!! Famous last words. Loved Biaggi there to pick up the pieces. He worked really hard both races.

Grinchy, the paddok girls looked delicious. Any pics???

"It could easily have been two double podiums for us. I was in the lead, but Marco got in much too quick on both the last two corners. I didn't brake too hard and too late, but he came from a long way back and I had to lift off. I went to close the line, but Jonathan was there. Marco knows it was a big mistake. I don't blame Johnny. Obviously there are no team orders with BMW - Marco and I are both going for the championship, and that's racing."
Now that there is a sporting gentleman given the circumstances

Crescent Suzuki made a good showing with a 5 place as well. Too bad Kawasaki can't get a bike like that in the AMA and have Honda come back with a good team as well. Would make the local series more interesting. Would be nice to see EBR try a shot at WSB one day as well.


(Granted they were gifted 5th by the lost BMWs)

of a race!! That's one way to get that Honda where it belongs. Atleast it wasn't his fault. Too bad the BeeM'ers crashed cause it looks like he would have had it anyway.
