I saw it live, but this is a "No-Spoiler" thread so heads up for those who might not have seen the races.

Marco has such a tough life...

Leon measured up too considering how much he had to hurt. I have a lot of respect for that.

BMW was smart to sign both of those fellows. They make their engineers look brilliant...

Haslam was 5th in race two, beating Melanri's 6th.

Good first race from Melandri but Haslam beating him in the second race has to be the performance of the weekend...

yeah, Haslam is pretty dang strong.

For SBK, I am still going with Checa and Marco, as the guys I root for.

As always, Biaggi is the devil.
