I can't decide if the ironman award should go to Biaggi or Haslam. Been a long boring winter, hasn't it?
yes and Haslam gets a vote 4 sure but Checa not Biaggi though he rode well and run through the grass is better than a high side any day.

Yeah, Haslam is the man, he's not the only one riding injured.

BMW looks better too, can't wait for next round, good thing it's not too soon so everyone can get healthy, I think it was 3 riders out with injuries before the season even started and at least 3 others riding hurt. I remember when I got a concussion some years back had spend a week in bed, puking for the first 24 hours, and then just sick for next 6 days, unable to drive, can't even imagine racing after not one but TWO good knocks on the head.

Yes, great show by Max. But, damn, if you could come back from a mile behind the last position, and still be with-in 6 seconds from the first place, you are in the wrong league. Max should stop slumming in WSBK and move to MotoGP. He is like the Mladin of the WSBK

I was watching the race on Sunday, seeing Max on top of that Aprilia, I just can't imagine that bike was built for anyone else but him. Everything, his arms, legs, seating position just fell into placeas natural as can be. Ergo wise Max just fits that Aprilia beautifully and the better, more comfortable the rider is obviously the faster he'll go...and Max went pretty fast in race #1 and #2. It will be an interesting battle between 3 and 7. If Max can keep it togther mentally he'll be tough to beat.
It would be nice if the administrators would have an "official" WSBK post section for each race. Then there won't be so many dup. posts and comments, also this way if you do tape the race you'll know not to suscribe to this particular thread and risk the chance you'll know the outcome.

People forget just how good Max is. If it weren't for a kid named Rossi, Max would be a three time world champion in the premier class.
