*Spoiler* WSBK....

So close! Tom rode the outta the ZX10 but just not quite enough in the first race... spanked them in race 2 tho!

Those 12.5 points from earlier in the year sucked!

14 races, 9 poles, 6 outright track records, and lose the championship by .5 points.

Good job to see Kawi competitive again tho.. gonna be a force next year!!

Sykes had more than a few mechanical issues that took him out of the lead.. what could have been?

Yeah, Tom looked solid in 2nd race, had a big out of the saddle momemnt early on, but stayed with it. Good to see him make a good season, alot beter than back in 2009 on the yahmaha as Spies teammate. Not a fan of Biaggi, but thats only cause im a bit long with seeing him torpeado people going into turns.... Biaggi still managed to make it close affair and it was funny to see Lorenzo's reaction in the aprila garage out there supporting his hero as he made mistakes. Hopefully Dorna dosent screw things up to badly over there. Kawi looking good for next year with Baz coming on strong too, although im really bummed with Lascorez' accidient he was a hard charger... still have 'nt really seen any more explaination on what happened.

Melandri:best rider had bad luck in portimao and Nurburgring. And this round too.

Not a fan of biaggi he sucks . Wish he had gotten a mechanical or ran off track to finish more back in the pack. It's bs how they told Laverty to slow down

Wish Sykes or Melandri wouldve win the title.

Pretty hard to be that old, and winning championships if you suck .


Say whatever you like about his personality, Biaggi can obviously ride.

Nice to see Tommy Sykes blooming,
Sad to see him miss it by half a point, that must really mess with your head!!

Fantastic seeing the Kawa running up front regularly again, its been way way to long.....

Great riding by Guinters at his home round


Who saw that dirty Sofoglue at it again
so glad he got penalised

Love or hate him Max is a class rider.
I'm pretty sure having Jlo in his pit added to the pressure though
