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 one thing that makes monza great racing is that its a superfast track ! hockenheim ,spa the new silverstone those tracks will always bring great racing because slipstreams equal overtaking bring back ALL THE FAST TRACKS

Re-read my post

I never made claim that MotoGP races are more exciting than the WSB races - you are reading what you want to see and not what has been typed

I stated that WSB is 2nd division in relation to motoGP

How many riders turn down MotoGP to goto WSB - answer none. They all want ot be in MotoGP because it is number one....fastest, best paid, biggest audience, most techinologically advanced, most glamour etc etc etc

No rider chooses WSB over a MotoGP ride irrespective of what they say if they have been forced into WSB (its called saving face)

moto gp or wsb?

the truth is how much longer can these to classes remain seprate cal pole position time at silverstone were tenths apart from motogp last year a set of carbon disc and some better pirelli rubber the would be even closer. combine the two have have wicked races with great midfield action.

flammini and dorna need to realise the money the could earn if they joined i hate to say it but motorbikes needs a bernie eccelstone at the end of the day sbk was so much more intresting in the 94-01 era. when motogp went fourstroke it nicked a lot of viewers i was one of them but since moto gp went 800cc its made me slowley back to wsb .

OTT Brit jingoism from Eurosport

Laverty had two canny races, and made the most of the ludicrous chicane mistake from the supposedly very experienced Biaggi.

However can someone tell Eurosport's Tony Carter and the often hysterical Jack Burnicle that Laverty is NOT British. He stands under the Irish tricolour on the podium, and (southern) Ireland is NOT in Britain.

Well done Chaz

He was hardly reported last year on this site with his valiant efforts on the Triumph; and where is the latter this year?

Sad to see the apparent decline of max-neukirchner and ant west.

Laverty IS a Brit!

Commando828 - Laverty can stand under any colour flag he likes but the fact he was born in Ballymena, N ireland, speaks with a northern irish accent and lives in N, Ireland I think we (& Eurosport) can safely say he's a Brit!

Laverty (IRL)

Rob , I had initally thought the same as you - but as MANY people have stated EL has made the decision, as per the Good Friday agreement to be Irish (Republic -thereof). It is HIS choice NOT to be British, although he was born in the UK. There is too much history in that part of the world not to respect people's choices?
