The first weekend of MCN Fantasy Road Race 2006 got off to a flying start with Round One of the World Superbike Championship in Qatar.
Friday's Superpole saw Troy Bayliss back up his standing as one of the top priced riders in Fantasy Road Race as the only rider to go under two minutes, which bagged him five early points.

With monthly manager’s prizes, mate vs mate private leagues and only £5 for the season’s facing it’s never too late. A £12,000 Suzuki and all-expenses paid trip to a MotoGP are up for grabs.
Bayliss' standard of performance didn't really dip the whole weekend, as he sped to 45 Fantasy Road Race points in Qatar, after coming second in both races - certainly proving to be a plum pick for those managers who bought him for their teams.

In the weekend's first race James Toseland took the 25 points after Noriyuku Haga and Yukio Kagayama sensationally crashed out on the final lap. Toseland kept his composure to finish ahead of Bayliss and then Andrew Pitt in third.
Troy Corser used the second race to stake his claim in the early stages of the championship, as he held off a resurgent Bayliss over the latter stages of the race, with Haga coming in third place - less than one thousandth of a second ahead of Toseland.
This all meant that 29 Fantasy Road Race managers are tied for the lead after the first race weekend. Those who chose to spend big on World Superbikes got their rewards for a combination of Troy Bayliss and James Toseland, which saw them gain 85 points each.
The Fantasy Road Race moves to Australia next weekend for the second round of World Superbike action.
