I'd like to see Troy win enough races this year to beat Carl's record by 1. But, it appears this is a one-off and Pirro will be riding the bike next round. It will still be fun to see what he can do (ala Mike Hailwood at the TT) after 5 years off. I know he has been riding dirt track and supermoto, so he hasn't just been surfing the couch.

No one left here to spoil it for.

Love the new line ups and happy that Johnny Rea is off that Honda and on something competitive - How bad do you have to be to work with to get the #1 plate, have the best package in the pits and STILL have the Fact Team NOT renew your contract? - Fuckin Guinters

What a race weekend. Both races where unbelievable! I guess my package that I have this year gives me BEIN so I am able to watch it. Anyone know when the WSS races are aired?

WSS race was in-between the WSBK races. Was on for 4-5 hours straight Saturday. They re-aired the WSBK races Sunday night
