Cool

Are you talking about the race that was just on Speed? My boy Troy from down under came through on the Zuki!

Can't wait to get to Daytona to see some more live race action. Ten days to go, then I'm outta here.

I would hate to be Haga right now...wrecking himself and his friend when they would have finished 1 and 2.

both races were great. i am a huge F1 fan, but Moto gp, AMA and WSB is the best racing period.

it is going to be a huge battle between all the manufacturers except for kawasaki.

Great close racing.
Pisser about Haga and Kagayama (SP?).

Life has no instruction manual. Parts and labor can be impossible to find. Many go down the road with parts that are in need of service. A breakdown is eventual.

+1

I am also a big F1 fan but bike racing is much more fun to watch. The one tire manufacuturer rule in WSBK seems to provide exciting racing.

Looks like Ducati is going to be a real thorn in the side of Suzuki this year. Last year was a joke how the 05 Suzuki just walked away from everyone.

This is the first race that's been on since I got Speed channel so I DVR'd it but the cable must have been going wacko while it was on because the picture and sound keep breaking up Comcast. At least it was working during the Supercross race.

Kick ass races! Bayliss is going to make this season really interesting. I'd like to see Barros stepup too. After racing MotoGP, WSP should be a cakewalk.

Don't know about the Betty Crocker stroll for AB - Really defines the rider going from a Mil dollar bike to a few notches above factory - Both races were great to watch though - Poor Frankie - I pull for his old ass every race - God bless 'em showin up every week to ride

I cannot wait for Moto GP and the 250's as well as the 125's - I love those small CC classes - The lead changes are crazy when it is a good race - Watchin those kids go from P6 to P1 in 1 turn is insane

Race Season is the only thing I know that even comes close to WEDDING SEASON!!!

Both were just outstanding races... WSBK should be really good this year especially with all the MotoGP "rejects" on the grid.

What do you guys think of the whole control tyre concept?

Is it just me or does anyone else not like the commentators for WSBK that much? These guys miss things while talking about history or stats instead of what is actually happening on the track, and they stumble over each other sometimes. Maybe I'm just spoiled by MotoGP commentators, they seem so much better, sharp, on the ball and don't make as many omissions or mistakes...

I know EXACTLY what point you are referring to in Race 2 - They were talking about a pass from TC and were showing something completely else - And they do the same exact opposite and show a pass from 40 seconds ago and then come back to a P1 change after it has already happened - Not sure if it is the the two blokes as much as the Prod Mgt staff from Speed

I know what you mean about the discrepancies. They also completely missed Bayliss pass on Haga. However, MotoGP commentators are rather dull, these guys souns like they are jumping off the seats every time there is a good pass.. Very entertaining

That and it is "Always a cracking race today in world superbike"

ANYTHING is better than AMA in my opinion - Fuk Fast Freddy - Great Rider, sucky commentator

Hahaha, it is always hilarious to hear Brits talk about races and referring to them as crackers. Also, when they say stuff like... Gibernau ran the bike out of gas... he does not look amused

points I'd like to make.

1. the suzuki is no where near as dominant this year, the others have caught up.
2. the yamahas are very impressive compared to their past efforts(interesting how haga likes the forks off his old R7, eh?)
3. the ducatis are impressive that they are so competitive despite the fact that they still campaign a v-twin in a class dominated by I-4s. Though to be fair Bayliss was riding the fucking wheels off that thing, fucking worldclass effort.

I agree, and kawasaki looks to be going nowhere fast. I was most impressed by the 2 leading yamahas until lap 18 in race 1.

Yamahas do look outstanding out of the gate but seem to be eating tyres more then others and dropping off the pace towards the end. Bayliss's tyre situation clearly looked better then anyone else's at the end of race 2..

Good observation. Haga's race strategy is to get ahead right at the beginning, haul ass for as many laps as he can to get a decent lead, then slow down to conserve the tires. At the end his goal is to be a pain in the ass to pass, forcing them to eventually run wide going into a corner too hot. The Suzukis all had noticeable more straight line power though. They were able to get a sizeable lead on the front straight. It will be interesting to see them on the other circuits that don't have a huge straight like that.

But I love having all the manufacterer's in the mix for winning.
