    You have to admire Guinters. He's getting podiums in almost every race, leading the championship, and no-one is talking about him :D

    Sykes crashed on the sighting lap in race 2, started from pit lane and immediately retired with a mechanical.

    Spoilers below!

    An Aprilia 1-2 in race 2, as Laverty grabs the win and Guintoli seizes another 20 points in the championship run. Rea nabbed third, Baz 4th, Davies in fifth, and Checa had one of his better finishes of the year so far in sixth.

    Race 1 winner Melandri had big tire trouble, falling to 12th place.

    As noted by someone else here earlier, Guintoli's consistency is going to develop a points lead that may be insurmountable by season's end. He currently leads Sykes by 28 points in the championship.

    Having crashed before the race start, he had to start from the pit road, allowing everyone to start first.

    He set a blazing pace to try to make up for the disadvantage, but he later dropped out due to mechanical issues.

    He did finish race 2, albeit in last place. Was he just over anxious on the warmup lap?
