Monza WSB: Laverty battles to race two victory

Factory Aprilia rider Eugene Laverty prevailed in the second race at Monza today to take his sixth World Superbike victory and third of the season. It was another race long battle between Laverty, Marco Melandri, Tom Sykes and Sylvain Guintoli, with Laverty moving in to first place on the penultimate lap. The Irishman was able to hold his lead and prevent Melandri...

Nowt Missing!

I don't know what u lot were watching but u don't half talk some bollocks, we all moan about boaring gp races with runaway wins n then we get races like this n ur all moaning sbk's not what it was n 6 consistent riders on good bikes is a bad thing, the thing about the sbk is every now n then an inconsistent rider pops up n does the business, it's a fantastic championship with excellent racing n u lot are super daft n over think bike racing, 150-160mph slides in tandem round Monza on final lap for win, Love It!

Nice Soups ...

... it's strange that brother Alex get's loads of media exposure for winning a national race, and Sam get's next to nothing for outstanding world championship performances like this. His 3-bike over-take was incredible and to win at Monza on a slow bike is a rare feat indeed, but just how good is is WSS?

I need a hero

Nice comment Owain. With all due respect to the current crop and their abilties they don't evoke the passion the names you serve up did.

I think we were richly spoilt with WSBK in the nineties. You could add Gobert to that list too under the column that read Hero, Nutter, hate figure, stylish and cool with big nads.

Good WSBK races as Monza invariably dishes up. Missed the WSS.

What's going on with race direction, they're as dithery as the GP lot - is it a DORNA thing?  Sykes third, Skyes fourth, Sykes third again? I can't understand why he was reinstated. This one is not finished yet though.

Owain Prince of Wales

Alex Lowes gets the coverage because BSB is a major championship - WSB is a major championship - WSS is a support race and although it produces outstanding world class racing it's what it says on the tin a support race.

World Superbikes of yore

The nineties those were the days. Great names like those mentioned below and the wildcards, remember them? The Japs and the Brits in particular showing up the regular riders. And talking of Japs we even had a Japanese round!! Fancy that, a Japanese round in a WORLD championship. Who would believe it?

And yes well done Sam Lowes. A young British rider doing very well in a world championship. Did you get that MCN?  A BRITISH rider winning in World Supersport. How about you let you website visitors know that you lazy feckwits.!!

I think the reason that those of us who remember SBK  and 500 GP in the nineties with so much afffection is because we were all much younger and more impressionable in those days -  we are now all older wiser more cynical and much harder to impress in advancing years.

I'm sorry Saturn ...

... but I don't pop my cork for middle-aged men from Kent (no matter how good Shakey is). I'm afraid that BSB is going through it's all too frequent cyclical lull in quality, and sadly Alex is caught-up in it. It's on a road to no-where - ask Shakey.
