    Looks like a damage control weekend for Carlos.
    Hasn't been a great track for Ducati in recent years though...despite the Italians shortening the run to the finish line a few years back! :lol3

    Looks like Checa is out for tomorrow due to a shoulder injury. It's amazing how far Ducati have fallen since the 2011 season when Checa was unbeatable. Unforunately, they seem to be on the verge of becoming irrelavent in every major racing series unless you consider World Super Stock a major racing series.

    9:30 AM, I believe.

    WSS is coming up next on vipbox/british eurosport.

    Superstock was "eventful".

    +1. There were some fantastic clean passes by Milandri, Sykes, and Laverty on the last few laps.

    I don't think I have ever seen all four leaders of a race go down together.

    And the commentators are all duhhh when it was clear if they watched the screens like everyone else that the lap before that bike blew the motor on the entry to that chicane and dropped oil.
