Monza WSB: Laverty does the double

Factory Yamaha rider Eugene Laverty has won both superbikes races at Monza today after Max Biaggi was given a ride through penalty.  Max Biaggi got a good start and pulled away from the rest of the field, opening up a five second lead before he ran straight on at the end of the front straight with seven laps remaining. The race organisers gave...

Was good back in the day but who are the ones that ruined the whole class Honda when they were the ones who pushed Dorna, FIM and the MSMA into going into 800cc rules.

"Last time I saw the Yamaha WSB go like that, Ben Spies was on it." 

I take it you missed Silverstone last year?

Firstly well done to Laverty he had looked good all weekend and performed 110% on race day and also stuffed up Melandri which is nice to see.

Great to see Fabrizo and Haga getting a good result hopefully they can keep that pace up

As for the Biaggi ride through it was defiantly fair even though he was leading by 5 seconds and didnt real gain an advantage over any over riders but rules are rules if you think about it the officals dont always get their decisions right but im glad Biaggi didnt moan about it.

Anyways Salt Lake City next hope fully Checa wont breakdown so it atleast won make the race boring like last year when Biaggi just cruzed to a double last year :)

Ride Through

Nice to See Yamaha running so well .

I see Laverty also missed a corner when he nearly fell off and never got a ride through -

Race Direction Cannot give Max a ride through penalty as they do not know how much time was gain lost in missing the corner - If they had to prove without a doubt that the time was made up by missing the corney they would never be able too ? Who say max did not make it up on other parts of the circuit because he made a mistake in the corner ? How can it be said ? They assume because the laptime was slower my a small amount it was because he missed the corner and maybe it was just who really knows for sure ????  They just do not have the technolgy in place to make the decision they did !  

Rules are rules as a rider is must be hard when ok missed the corner ? What must I do now ? Go back one place and then race again - Count to 5000  ? Its not defined - Max would surely have a case if someone lower in the filed missed the corner without gaining a place and was not given a ride through ( Which happens often and I never see those riders get ride throught penalty's ) Rules are Rules but then they have to be Ruled with a ruler ? Where is the ruler ?

How many riders do you see turning down a MotoGP ride to go to WSB

Ben Spies soon jumped over to MotoGP, as did Toseland to name just two

Did Biaggi and Melandri turn down MotoGP rides to go over WSB - I think not. There were no MotoGP rides left so it was their only option

WSB is second division, always has been and always will be

Accept the fact that MotoGP is number one irrespective of whether the racing is better in WSB, or not

Monza 2011

Got back from Monza yesterday and what an awesome weekend it was! Great venue, passionate fans,and fantastic racing, I recommend anyone who hasn't been to put it on there to do list. Well done to Eugene & Chaz, blowing away the Italians on there home circuit. As for Biaggi I can't say I feel sorry for the pint size prima donna, if you don't turn up for the rider briefings in person then you don't deserve any sympathy. Even the Italians seem divided on him one half loving him and the others cheering for Marco. In fact the post race interview in the paddock was invaded by the Max Biaggi Fanclub who chanted his name during Marco's, Fab's and Eugene's interviews - what a bunch of arrogant tossers, just like there hero!

Sorry GuyGraham You must Be whatching something totally differant to me when it comes to MOTO GP.

MOTO GP is ROSSI,LORENZO,STONER AND PRDROSA,The one that survives the first lap and is leading is normally the winner and then the rest just make up the places.

Unless it rains its sooooooooooooooooo Boring 9 times out of ten .

Lacuna Seca was the last good MotoGP race when Rossi Stuffed Stoner how many YEARS ago was that?
