    Guinters needs to crank this up.

    That said, I would also celebrate a Sykes win for the championship, as it would be Kawasaki's first major championship since 1993.

    Good to see Lanzi right up there on the 'old' Duke. Could be a genuine Dark Horse if the weather turns to crap. And there's always a good chance of that at MC....

    Very exciting Race 1. Mega action mid-pack. Nutters. :D

    The race ended on a red flag with a bike on fire in the middle of the track. Fitting.

    Says a lot about Ducati's problems when Lorenzo Lanzi finished ahead of the Panigale on his 1098R!
    Great racing midpack Endurance racers vs Ex GP guys vs SBK guys.
    Elias was like a maniac telling Phillipe that he was at fault for his crash!

    Sykes was on fire...the class of the field. One of the largest gaps I can remember all season. Very timely for him in the championship race.

    I wonder if Laverty and Guintoli had a laugh about crashing in the same corner in that second race. I know I did.
