They were two bloody good races i thought!, kept me on the edge of my seat in some parts.
Nice to see the Blade back to his usual self!. [img]style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/biggrin.gif[/img]
It's about time Crutchlow got his first win too, well deserved after last season.
Shame about Haslam but as they say. . .good things come to those who wait!
What a crash that was with Sykes & Harris too [img]style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/ohmy.gif[/img] , and there was no way it was Haslam's fault either!
Is it just me or is Shakey dangerously silly at times? [img]style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/blink.gif[/img]


roll on Oulton Park i say! [img]style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/toot.gif[/img]

What an excellent pair of races! AMA wishes it was this good! [img]style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/biggrin.gif[/img]

I have Cal down as a dark horse for the season, but I think Byrne is going to win it in the end.

WOW!! That was great racing. I'd say the three main races (supersport being the other) were more exciting than the one before. What a terrifying track thruxton is, the bikes looked really cool squirming around at that speed and in such close cobat with each other. Unfortunately there was a few horrific looking accidents, but it seems the riders are okay on the most part.

Great riding fromt Cal Crutchlow today, he is a future star and made leon look mediocre today. Shakey did as well but this is expected from him. I can't wait for the next round to get a clearer representation of what might happen this season, plus i'm gonna be there [img]style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/smile.gif[/img]

It's you, Haslams riding was more questionable

Haslam was only dangerous in race 2 at the chicane when he pushed himself and Harris wide. [img]style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/unsure.gif[/img]
However Shakey was all over the place in race 1 & 2 and was being quite aggressive in places.

His passes were clean and fair, he looked less sketchy then most around him (Haslam, Rutter, Sykes etc)

I Ride: Has pedals
Great racing at a real track. Leant over on the power, sliding at speed, brilliant. Rutter can definitely ride a twin really well. Haslam showed again why is isn't winning races every weekend,

Didnt see a problem with Shakey's passing, everyone he passed stayed on the bike [img]style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/smile.gif[/img]

Leon Haslem yey again proving why I can't stand the guy. There are too many occassions where he looses control under braking ala with Harris on Sunday.

And for people who say the Sykes/Harris crash wasn't Haslem's fault, watch the crash again and look how wide his line was going into the next corner, Sykes had no where to go and his reaction proved how angry he was with Leon.

Haslem is lucky that it was his good friend Karl Harris on the recieving end of both incidents and not someone less friendly such as Sean Emmett.
