Totally forgot this is this weekend.

Looking forward to it. I hope Chaz Davies can find some more of what he had at Aragon.

Perhaps the decimal is in the wrong spot. More like 3.65.

Fantastic racing. Great battling for the lead between all the key riders for most of the race, actually all of it until about the last lap. Unfortunately for Sykes he made a mistake a bit early and with that crash I think ended his championship hopes. Van Mark was nails! That kid has some real talent, unfortunately it looks like he went in a bit to deep into the right hand dip, looked to unsettle the bike and down he went. Stupid? No. Not any more stupid than Iannone crashing out at Qatar. He was pushing hard, override the POS Honda to keep up with Rea and Davies who looked beatable on the day. Rea and Davies both had their issues, Nicky hung on to the lead pack but never made an impression. At least he was stuck to the leaders. After VDM went down Nicky had his own moment, dialed it back and cruised for the podium.

Rea 2016 champ. Game over.

Lucky for Nicky VDM went down so close to the end of race, otherwise Nicky wouldn't have been on the podium at all.....

....Didn't someone else recent get lucky to end up on the podium due to others falling just before the end and yet was considered undeserving of it?

Good on Nicky for doing well this weekend....and coming to terms with the rubbish honda....

Nicky was lucky to be on the podium. Like Rossi admitted, I bet Nicky would concede the same. Not just because VDM crashed but also Sykes.

However, I think you would agree, a rider going down ahead of you with a few laps to go is less predictable, in Sykes case several laps, this is different than riders going down (one taken out) on the last turn before the finish.

Watching the CBR1000 makes me think I am watching a boat on the circuit.

It has such loopy cornering lines. Really is incredible the speed van der Mark has gotten out of that thing.

Race overall was fantastic...makes you wonder if the ZX-10R's are underachieving or if the riders are underachieving. Yes Rea got the victory in the end, but Davies and van der Mark gave him a very serious run. Davies is perfectly in tune with the Ducati...too bad the tire couldn't hold up.

Tom Sykes has not looked particularly stellar at the past couple of races and today was no exception to that. He just ran far too hot into the chicane...stupid move that he didn't need to do.

van der Mark you just have to wonder what happens if he doesn't go down. He had the pace, but I think he was working towards a last lap overtake attempt to try and win it. What might have been there. Such a fun rider to watch when he gets into his groove. Some over his overtakes were incredible...and more importantly, he made them perfectly clean. Would love to see him on a GP machine.

Nicky finally gets that podium...I get the feeling Nicky is just riding to position at every race. He's not going to chance anything at all.

Hope van der Mark can pull out some stunner for tomorrow's race.
