He has just amde some silly choices, perhaps out of his hands.

Won BSB at a canter and looked good before that too, but in Superbike has not done much.

A lot of injuries, riding with Biaggi which was probably a bike several steps behind Max's, Suzuki was a disaster on their way down and MV even more so!

Great racing weekend again. Sykes fought tooth and nail for a much deserved win definitely putting Rea's nose out of joint but for me it was the Welsh wizard who stole the show riding the wheels of that Ducati for a podium place in race 2, brilliant job Chaz Davis, roll on the tighter circuits of Europe where we're really guaranteed some fireworks at the front!

It's been a great couple of races!
It's so, so nice to see Nicky Hayden back on a competitive bike. It was heartbreaking to see the guy with so much talent being on a rubbish bike in GP.

Here's to a good season, I got a feeling it's gonna be great!

Both weekends have been brilliant, puts Moto GP to shame.

Well, that was a bit of a cracker! Superbike race 2 more than made up for race one where there was a certain inevitability about Rea passing Sykes. You could see from the on-boards (much better quality this season) with 5 or 6 laps to go that, Rea was carrying stupendous mid-corner speed AND keep the line whereas Sykes was drifting wide and wide. It all adds up on the clock.

Still, whatever Sykes had for lunch on race day must have been potent. He was extremely dogged, good to see but I suspect Rea is going to recalibrate how much room he will give next time. Some of Tom's blocking moves were brutal! The pre-podium body language was interesting viewing.

Incidentally, in the post-race one interviews, van der Mark mentioned something about his bike getting lost on the track. I was wondering if the bikes rely on GPS for corner to corner engine mapping and maybe it lost some position info. I would have thought they would use a self-contained system which knew where it was relative to a known datum (kinda like inertial navigation).

I'll get me coat.

PS: Supersport was cracking too, very pleased to see PJ battle so hard. I really hope he can challenge all year long.

PPS: The bikes sound glorious this season, somebody has turned up the trackside effects bike too.

Much deserved wins as well, Davies sure rides the wheels off that bike I'm sure the Kwackers won't take that double defeat lying down, bodes well for a good season.

I was very impressed that Davies won those two races and halted the Kawasaki steamroller. I'd like to see more of the same

Assen

Great race 1 in Assen today! Rea and Davies taking first and second was no real surprise, but racing was really tight all the way to the flag.

Good to see Hayden on a podium again. When was the last time he got one?

Great result for Camier as well; 4th place must be the best ever for MV Agusta in World Superbike.

Superb superbike race 1 and supersport race at Assen last weekend. I was really pleased for Camier.

Interesting comments from Sean Muir on how Milwaukee BMW are faring so far especially with regards to the performance of his riders; openly heaping pressure on Karel Abraham is an interesting strategy.

Also, Whitham made some comments about the Panigale and the reworked bottom area i.e. it used to be exposed pipes but now has bodywork; he was querying what the legality of that was since the class is supposedly silhouette based. Do Ducati have to produce road-going Panigale's with the new bottom layout or have they got some sort of dispensation?
