WSB Miller: Haslam loses championship lead after race two crash

Leon Haslam was forced to surrender the world superbike lead he has held since the opening race of 2010 after he suffered a dramatic high side in race two. The Alstare Suzuki rider who celebrated his 27th birthday on race day had fought his way up from tenth to second in the opening race and was determined to secure another...

Leon

Leon may have had some bad luck in America, but he remains the best out there and the most likely winner of the World Superbike Championship. I cannot beleive other people on the forum want Max to be champion over Leon. The Haslams are the most successful Father / Son motorcycle racing combination that Britain has ever seen and are rooted in racing folklore. I for one am travelling to Italy to support Leon in the round. Watch him show Max up in front of all of those Italians.

May the best rider win!

And at the moment that looks like Max.
Personally I would like to Biaggi lift the title this year and he will if Haslam makes mistakes as he did yesterday!
He just pushed too hard. but so easy to do.
Just because we are British does not mean we have to support British riders!
Dont get me wrong Rocket Ron was one of my favourites and Hailwood one of the all time greats. I support riders for a different number of reasons not just because they are British.Everyone to their own!

That both sucks and blows...

i've been cheering for leon all year. had him in my fantasy racing team. Along with Checa. There go my chances...

Hopefully Leon's chances increase in the next few races.

I agree....

That the best man should win.

While being british and it would be great to see Haslam (or any of the other British riders) win the championship, if max wins i will be equally happy. when it comes to bike racing I'm a bike fan first and british second and have always admired biaggi's talent in all the classes he has raced. he deserves another championship and WSB would be a nice one to have on the Aprillia.

So roll on the second half of the season, it's only 15 points afterall. Lets see a fight to the finish and may the best man win

I also agree that the best man should win.

In my opinion Leon seems to be the fastest rider, along with Cal Crutchlow, but I still would like to see Haga get the title because of all the effort he has put in over the years. He really is a deserving competitor and has paid his dues.

IMO the best bike is (and has been since last year) the Aprillia. Max is riding good but that bike is just amazing.
