Edwards needs to stay close to Bayliss. I think if hestays close he might be able to pull ahead in the middle of the season on the tracks he is better at.

Maybe. Edwards talks a good race, but even in the year he won the championship Bayliss nearly got him in half the season.

No mistake, Edwards is a gun, but Bayliss seems to find a way to beat him.

Because he's an Australian!

And to think people were saying Edwards would win.



It was good to see Andrew Pitt win his first race in the 600's as well.



Can anyone tell me why the 600's go everywhere else with the Superbikes, but they don't go to the US? You guys are missing out (not that this weekends race was that exciting).

america's probably too far to justify the cost of toting the 600's over, for what is more or less a support event.

No, I'm sure that can't be the case. They take them to Australia, Japan, South Africa. Getting the bikes to the US wouldn't be any harder than getting the bikes to those locations. And I take it the US 600cc market is a very large one, dwarfing probably those 3 markets combined. And while the 600's might be the support class, it is very serious racing indeed, usually much more exciting than the Superbikes in fact.



No, I just can't see why they wouldn't take them over. Are the organisers being inflexible with facilities and practice times, since they run the nationals at the same time?

Laguna Seca is jam packed that entire race weekend with all the AMA events. While I am sure the world 600's are excting most of the people at Laguna Seca come to watch AMA races.

great result for bayliss, he seems to have the measure of edwards, 4 outta 4 races so far. i think his confidence is so good right now its going to take a supreme performance from edwards to break this cycle. one mistake cost him a fighting chance in the first race and possibly a bad tyre in the second...but when your luck is in its hard to be beaten...btw pretty boring racing except for the 600's. good to see pitt get a win at last...roll on some of the tighter circuits...
