    Yesterday it was Fabrizio, today Melandri. Biaggi entered Melandri's garage after Superpole to have words about on track antics!


    Haha, Biaggi making a bunch of friends eh?

    UPDATE: Melandri and Biaggi have both received official warnings from Race Direction for their on track behavior, and Biaggi was given a 3,000 Euro fine for "behavior inconsistent with the interests of the sport."

    I like how even Max's Aprilia handler looked ready to deck him. :lol3 Marco showed admirable restraint (and awareness of the camera :deal ).

    For 3K euro, he should have fattened a lip and bloodied a nose. That little incident was not even worth a $5 Subway.

    I like Checa's response "I saw something... I was a little cold and everyone has their own way of staying warm. I think Melandri and Biaggi were making dinner plans." :rofl:rofl:rofl:rofl

    Biaggi showed his true colors by blocking a couple of riders qualifying laps. Haga would've been faster if he hadn't been parked in the middle of one of the last apexes.

    Man, I like Biaggi, but that he is acting like a baby here. Checa for the win and Melandri on the podium!

    Personally, I like the spark. Biaggi has successfully painted a target on his back for at least 3 riders. Also I think it was Haga(not sure) that crashed while shaking a fist at Biaggi in uhhh 08 maybe? I dunno but I remember someone getting pissed at Biaggi and shaking a fist mid corner and crashing, I think it was Haga.

    So yeah, will be fun to see how this all plays out.

    Nope! The race was the Italian version of a bitch slap!

    Very excited for Marco! Gutted for Laverty.

    Carlos had a nice pass on Slappy with 9 laps to go.

    Great racing!

    Rear wheel came off from a privateer Ducati:huh

    Melandri looked rossiesque. Steady climbing towards the front and then impressive last 1½ laps.
