WSB Spoiler!

Ok experts, who would have a hard time NOT killing "Checker" after the bonehead last corner move????

Max looked like someone just shot hid dog, took his woman, and burned his house at the end of the race!

And WTF was going on with Biaggi? After that mechanical, he rode more pittifully than the beginning of the race.

I do think that Ducati pilots held back so they wouldn't be penalized though...

+1, however freaking lanzi forgot that.
Checa was never going to make that turn, he was going too fast, too bad Xaus ate dirt, i wanted him to have a good result

Checa was 3/10 - 4/10 faster than Max, I think he just set the pass up too late. I personally would have set him up for a draft pass to the finish line. The Honda seemed fast enough to come out of the slip stream and overtake for a short distance. Not good enough for the whole straight, but good enough to get to the line.

Checa is a Spaniard and the race was in Spain.

In case you were not aware Spain probably has the most "motorcycle racing" fans in the world! If Brett Favre were to throw the winning pass in the final seconds of a Super Bowl game played in Wisconsin, that could come close to to the frenzy that would have erupted had he pulled off that pass and won the race!!

When in Spain....

But I do feel bad for Neukirchner. That was his race to lose and unfortunately it was taken from him and now he's injured.

When's the last time anyone has heard a critique regarding WSBK being a "spec tire" series? The critics have been silenced because the racing has been phenomenal!!

First lap passes, last lap passes, last turn passes, privateer teams battling for podiums, now that is a professional racing series!

Can't argue with the results for sure. I was a doubter, but can't doubt any more!
