Miller WSB Race 2: Melandri wins after epic battle with Rea, Davies fourth

Despite being delayed for over an hour, the second race at Miller was well worth the wait. After a brilliant race long battle,  Italian Marco Melandri claimed a hard fought victory ahead of Jonathan Rea after making a decisive move into turn one on the final lap of the race. His win marked BMW’s second ever WSB victory and escalates...

Jonathan Rea

what a ride!. the balls out style he has..a pleasure to watch him wring everything out of that bike. What was it, he was down something like 15km/h in the slipstream??. Incredible performance i gotta say. The Honda bigwigs must seriously give him some more help or he'll be poached by another team come next year.

Great race all around and well done to Chaz aswell. Absolute blinder from him

Melandri was the better rider today

Rea was good but Melandri was better. I could tell a couple of laps from the end that Melandri was gonna win. He was much smoother than Rea and hitting all the apexes while Rea was a little ragged. Both had shot tires but Melandri was just better. And it wasn't down to top speed. Checa was vastly slower than everyone and if he wouldn't have fell off would have done the double and won race 2 by a country mile. Leon was on the Bimmer and was no where and got his ass handed to him by Melandri. The Aprilias are fast in a straight line but didn't threaten to win at all.

Well done Marco on a fine win. Anyone else thinks his bird looks like a ladyboy? That hour long cleanup was a bleeding farce, stupid septics (yes yes I know safety first but that was ridiculous)

Brilliant ride from Jonathan Rea .Expected result from Marco melandri , I'd give the best ride award to Davies though. Whats happening to Eugene ? Biaggi Teammateitis?

Funny bit for me was in post race interview when the muppet interviewer kicked off Rea's bit with "when the cat's away, the mice really did play!". You could tell Rea really wanted to say "what the f*ck do you mean? I'm just a mouse compared to Checa? Have you looked at the points standings you cretin?" Unfortunately he just said something polite like, "yeah, I';m really not sure what any of that  meant..."

Although Rea rode the wheels off his Honda and Marco never gave up, my pick of top rider for race 2 goes to Chaz Davies. A rookie who looked every bit a top rider as the other front runners, and a podium for him would have made my day. Well done that man.......... :-)

Deputy Dawg...Haslam

So did Aoyama, by Rea, and Spies in Moto Gp by Lorenzo, Crutchlow and Dovisioso, your point is?  Well done the ulsterman at least you didn't try a Melandri move, oh no its not your teamate!  Great comments by Scott Russell hit the nail on the head regarding the Donington saga.  Well done Marco on a great race.
