God damn I love SBK

I read about it and then watched it last night. The first race was very wet but still exciting. Unexpected results.

Now on to Race 2. An excellent race. Nice to see some riders mixing it up.

JT put in a good race and it definately was worth the effort.

Can we talk about the friggen' actual results yet?

If you ain't with us, then it's just bad news.

Bayliss has exactly a 100 point lead at this point. 3 rounds left with 150 points up for grabs. Its is possible to make a run especially with a DNF or two from Bayliss. As long as Troy doesn't have more then 2 DNFs and finishes in the top 3 in the rest, the title is his. I don't think 2nd place will be any closer then 20 points to Bayliss.

But you NEVER know.

The point standings right now are crazy - JT 1 pt ahead of Nori - #1 plate 1 pt ahead of P4 ????

WOW whata great season - Just another reason why I am not a fan of AMA - Yeah I know, Mladin and Ben but who else even gives them a run? Old Miguel every 5 races might rear his head for a few laps but the Fac Suz team just crushes everyone

I know I saw Bayliss and even 100 ahead at the end of the race and I pulled those from the worldsbk site. I have noticed a few times both in SBK and MotoGeePee that the points will be different when I go to the site later.

I think it is because Speed does not factor in Pole and Lead Lap pts - Maybe?

Definitely an exciting race down to the last lap. It was really good to see Rueben up there with the leaders, he still got it. The wet race was fun to watch too, good to see Walker get a win.

Da Bears!
