    I would love to see Haslam able to contend again.

    He's playing head games with Baz. Definitely not a good look for Sykes.

    If I were Baz, I would give him a bump at every opportunity.

    You really have to feel for Leon Camier. Where is he? Fishin'? How can someone so obviously fast suddenly be back on the couch watching?:huh

    Isn't Camier injured? He was riding the Evo BMW, but his replacement is doing very well--never a good thing while you're away!

    Camier was the replacement rider. The injured rider (Sylvain Barrier) is now back.

    So here we go..Spectacular footage from SP.
    Sykes is just such a compact rider! I can't really compare him to anyone I've ever seen. (I've seen a lot...:-)) Hard to bet against him winning again. Him, the Bike, the Team, works goodly!

    BTW, I think he's long earned the right to call his teammate out. It's not a contact sport and especially from a teammate with virtually no credentials or respect for those that do.

    PJ was looking pretty fast on Warm-Up. :clap

    Melandri caused a dust up (splash?) in race 2, disrupting the natural order of things. This allows Rea to take the outdated Honda to another surprise win.

    Errr, Melandri was taken out by his teammate.....Innocent victim of Guintoli being quite stupid.
