"It's funny how bad Spies makes Mladin look by comparison."

So there is someone out there that makes Mladin look good in comparison?

What a terrific rider he is...all season long I've admired his attitude, grace under pressure, sportsmanship. When that idiot crashed him out a few races back he almost lost it, but then reeled it in and went on about his business. The commentators said he was off to Moto GP next year. I'd like nothing better than to see him wax Valentinorola's ass. GO SPIES!!!!

Congrats to Yamaha for winning the manufactures title. As much as I like Ducati, it's nice to see some diversity on the podium. Too bad Suzook was so uncompetitive this year.

Next year is the year of BUELL!! USA! USA!! USA!!!
Actually, Ducati won the manufacturers title.

I'll be damned...I'll blame it on the time of day. But thanks nonetheless! Now I can do this:

I'M DAMN SICK OF THE OBVIOUS BIAS WSBK HAS FOR DUCATI. YAMAHA HAS CLEARLY DOMINATED THIS YEAR, AND THOSE SUCKASS PEOPLE GOT ON THEIR KNEES FOR DUCATI YET AGAIN! WHEN ARE WE GOING TO GET A FAIR SYSTEM WITH WSBK LIKE WE DO IN THE US WITH BUELL?

Cool No Problems In Race Two!

Q The WSBK television guys were putting forth that in race two, you had some sort of technical issue. Evan and I kind of laughed about it, but for the record, did you have a technical issue in race two?

A No, not at all.

I was just staying out of trouble. The plan was to get a good start, ride at the front, try to get the holeshot, put my head down for a couple laps, or at least get with somebody and get pulled away a little bit, and just stay out of trouble. Shakey got the lead and I got in behind him, and that was about it. I heard a four-cylinder coming up behind me, so I knew it was Rea, and nodded him past, and I thought he had some good pace to try to win the race, so I let him by. And really tried to put the brakes on everybody, because I knew Biaggi and Fabrizio—I took a glance over and saw those three were behind me, and Haga—so I really tried to let Rea and Byrne get away, because I knew Nori had to win the race, and then if he'd won, we had to finish sixth. So I wanted to make the gap as big as I could, so I was holding everybody up.

That was pretty much it. And then when Nori came past, I just jumped on the back of him. He was in fifth, I was in sixth. Just got pulled away from seventh place, and really just rode my race. It was really comfortable, and it actually flew by. It was the fastest, one of the fastest races I've been in, for the type of situation it was.
