FIM WSBK Monza "SPOILER ALERT"

Great race! Both race 1 and 2 were interesting to watch. Seeing Biaggi pull a double was nice on the Aprillia.

Also FINALLY BMW gets their 1st podium!!! awesome I was definitely routing for them.

J.Rea had some bad luck in the 1st race but its nice to see him still in championship contention

Maybe it's just watching Moto2 or WSS, but this race was boring to me. Small grid, not a lot of passing, one bike obviously faster than the rest. I mean, when Biaggi came back by Haslam...it was effortless...

terrible weekend for Rea. Ouch.
The honda was looking strong at Assen.

Good race 1. decent race 2. Poor Haga, still chasing the podium and fighting with the Ducati.

I wouldn't say it was boring.. Crutchlow crashing out due to mechanical reasons was crazy, and Rea's crash was amazing.. did you see him looking for his bike? haha.

He was moving out too... horrible luck this weekend with zero points.

WSS was the boring race. Lascorz chasing Sofouglu chasing Laverty? Wasn't a bad race but I wouldnt call it super exciting.

Rea's crash was funny. I didn't watch WSS at Monza yet. But typically, they cut it up more, which I like. The real highlight of the season so far for me was the Moto2 race at Jerez. After watching that, all the other races this season in any series kinda have had the volume turned down.

Yeah I liked how Rea was looking for his bike after the crash to get back riding...only problem was it was on the top of the tire walls!

Finally I watched this today. It was just too easy for Max on the aprilla. The other racers have to work so hard to even keep up then when Haslem manages a pass he is just easily overtaken on the next straight. Toseland looks a lot better now than he did at the start of the season.
