    My fellow race fans, I could NOT possibly be enjoying WSBK any more than I am.

    Until next race of course

    Your thoughts gentlemen?

    It's like a bad car crash, I just can't look away...... but it hurts my eyes....

    Spoiler



    The last lap of race one had me on the seat of my couch and screaming like a wild man, not to mention the elbow racing between Spies & Haslam, it's really hard for me to root against Haga but I've followed Spies for a long time.

    Race two was a little boring to me since my boy went down, I know these tracks are new to Spies but if anybody would have tried to bet me at the beginning of the year that Spies would have crashed more than Haga I would have took that bet in a second, .Who would have thought Haga would turn into Mr Consistency this year...

    Yes, my tv got screamed at also in race 1, last lap. Great finish. Race 2 wasn't as exciting obviously and I fell asleep during the MotoGP race.

    Well you weren't the only one jumping off the couch in race one. I was 3 feet from my TV watching those last 2 or 3 laps of race one.

    I'm not sure what happened to Spies in race 2 exactly, but from the pieces of the replay it looks like he lost the front again at the end of a front stretch...just like his last WSBK crash. I'm sure he is still working to get used the Yamaha, Pirellis, and the WSBK tracks....it's only a matter of time for him to get consistent again, but he will now need Haga to have a slip up or two to catch him.

    Awesome races though. Very fun to watch.

    The MotoGP race today was also pretty exciting... I loved the Rossi, Lorenzo passes and then Rossi holding off Pedrosa.
