"The first Superbike race of the day saw a thrilling end to one of the best races ever seen at Monza. The race had to have two starts, after two crashes at the first chicane of lap 1 involving Tamada, Hill, Corser, Neukirchner and Roberts led to it being interrupted. The German came off the worst with a broken right femur and dislocated right foot, while Roberts picked up various bruises. The outcome of the race was decided at the final curve. Spies was well on his way towards a fifth win of the season when in the Parabolica his Yamaha ran out of fuel just a few metres from the line. Michel Fabrizio (Ducati Xerox) capitalized on Spies' misfortune to take his first win in Sueprbike. Team-mate Noriyuki Haga finished second to maintain his points lead. The third place battle also saw a thrilling end as Max Biaggi took his Aprilia over the line, but the Italian was penalized 20 seconds for cutting the chicane, leaving Ryuichi Kiyonari (Ten Kate Honda) to take the final podium position after a spectacular mid-race recovery from a poor start. Fourth went to Yukio Kagayama (Suzuki Alstare), ahead of the British pair of Jonathan Rea (Hannspree Ten Kate Honda) and Tom Sykes (Yamaha World Superbike). Both BMW and Kawasaki placed riders inside the top 10, Ruben Xaus taking the German four-cylinder machine to seventh while a still unfit Broc Parkes fought hard for tenth place."

"Ben Spies (Yamaha World Superbike) immediately made amends in race 2 by dominating from start to finish. The Texan left everyone standing after just a few laps and went on to win his fifth race of the season. This win, together with the crash at the Parabolica on lap 3 of points leader Noriyuki Haga (Ducati Xerox), who had been hit by a bird, keeps the championship battle wide open. Michel Fabrizio (Ducati Xerox) now becomes a credible title candidate after crowning his Italian weekend with an excellent second place. Fabrizio managed to hold off Ryuichi Kiyonari in the final stages, the Japanese rider repeating his race 1 result. A superb fourth went to Jonathan Rea (Hannspree Ten Kate Honda), while Max Biaggi (Aprilia), in fifth place, could have been further up the standings had he not made a mistake while fighting amongst the group and he was unable to make up the gap again. Tom Sykes took another sixth place for Yamaha, while Leon Haslam (Stiggy Racing Honda) made up for his race 1 retirement with a seventh place. Troy Corser did not take the start in race 2 after his two crashes today, but BMW honour was held high by Ruben Xaus, who again finished in ninth place. Broc Parkes again scored more points for Kawasaki in thirteenth."

That sucked to watch that happen right at the end of Race 1.

It was a very exciting race to watch.... all the way from start to finish

Race one was one of the most exciting races I've ever seen. How about Fabrizio having the to wave at Spies when he went by and then getting repassed a couple of laps later. Wow.

How much time is there between the two races? Those guys are in incredible physical condition.

I've been saying it.........I've been saying it.......Kiyonari is going to be up there soon enough......

Wow.....

Seriously.....if race 1 doesn't get your blood boiling......I don't know what would.

I was shaking from excitement those last few laps. But when Mr. Spies ran out of gas.........well........ may forgive me for the words that came out of my mouth.

You can't blame Spies though.....and you really can't even blame his team. Running that course at near full throttle the entire time on a four cylinder......well......that amount of fuel just doesn't last long. Hats off to Fabby though for putting it to Haga and giving Spies a run for his money.

Race 2...........I guess all you can say is........."text book racing" from Spies.

Again.........Kiyonari is finally up there.

It's a shame the R1 ran out of gas, because Spies put Fabrizo in his place. Fabrizio gave that little wave (not something you would expect from someone who had yet to win a Superbike race). Then Spies made an incredible pass on the brakes and then proceeded to gap Fabrizio (and Haga) on the last 2 laps and all was well until the last corner...

Spies did put him in his place.

But I don't think the wave was condenscending by any means.

One of the best races I've seen for a while. Right up there with the Assen Race 1 and the Laguna Seca GP race last year.

Fack!!! What awesome racing. Fabrizio with the wave was too funny, I tried that once at TWS (Texas World Speedway) passing Marv in T2, then promptly crashed my brains out in T3. Spies stoppies into T1 had the comentators squealing like little girls. Spies is a machine, I was crushed for him in race1, but he did get one point. Suprised he didn't push or scooter it to the line for a few more points. Can't wait for next week, Haga is bruised from teh bird strike, hope he's a slow healer. Just goes to show.............it ain't over til it's over, anything (bird strike?!?!?) can and will happen in WSBK.

I liked what Spies said in the after race interview for race 2 ... he took the warm up laps a little differently ... I can only assume he took those laps with a mind to conserve fuel for the race

I wonder if they went with the mapping switch the commentators were talking about.

yup, you predicted that one
I watched the racing and a couple of times I said "ole roadracer will be loving this"
Now imagine if he hadn't gone from 3rd on the grid to 14th or was it 17th at the end of lap1 in race 1.

arragant little got well and truely put in his place,

Yea.....the guy certainly knows how to come from WAAAAY back in the pack.

We saw it at Valencia.......the guy has SKILLZ. They're just finally getting around to having the bike dialed in right.

I'm not even a fan of Honda......by the way.

But I don't think the wave was condenscending by any means.

One of the best races I've seen for a while. Right up there with the Assen Race 1 and the Laguna Seca GP race last year.
you still haven't watched the WSS have you??
