    Damn, I saw R2 but haven't been able to see R1 or WSS all day.

    R1 is on LA7.tv, but I can't get it to play. Definitely an interesting round.

    The SpeedTV play was awesome. Great film and commentary up and down the top ten. Bravo Marco. You have a new home.

    Race 1 was awesome, I was on the edge of my seat the whole race! Race 2 was good, but not nearly as exciting. What the hell was up with Biaggi the weekend? He ignored the ride through? Why sacrifice points for no reason?:huh

    I agree completely on both points. Damn, Marco is going strong. Also loooooolllled at the "Dunno what you're selling but I'll take three bags of it" comment. Yeah Marco's chick is HOT. Definite bummed for Laverty, but very very glad he didn't snap anything on his off in race 1. Really out of all the WSBK guys I dig Laverty the best.

    Dude, a three year old is two feet taller than Marco...:lol3
    He sure married "up."

    I was sad watching Sykes bin it in race 1, not to mention seeing Haga's off in the second heat. So nice to see different guys up front! Although Checa winning 3 out of 4 has to make the eyebrows raise a bit. I wonder how reliable the Duc will be throughout the year...

    Believe me, the bikes Carlos is riding are no less 'Factory Bikes' than what Nori and Fab were riding last year.......:nod

    As much as Ducati can offer. Many of the key people from the old works team left the company.

    Word is that Team Effenbert-Liberty Racing (Smrz&Guintoli) has the last year's factory Ducatis.

    Ernesto Marinelli, former crew chief to the stars and 2010 Xerox Ducati team boss is Ducati's "technical liason" to the Althea squad. The crew is heavily populated with ex-XD wrenches. The primary reason that Checa is winning races, however, is Checa.

    Checa? He's had a year to adapt to the platform and his riding is as clean and precise as I've ever seen. The "careless chucker" of years gone by is a thing of the past.

    Exactly....the second race was run as near to perfect, the rear tyre was shot with one lap to go but he had enough on Melandri to just get there, pretty good riding in my book. :freaky

    Where did Davies finish? If he had an issue - I missed it.
