It sure looks that way. And here I thought it was said that once they got into European tracks Haga was going to stump everybody... I sure hope they make a race out of it though.

WSBK.com blocked the practice session so I missed it of course.

Don't get me wrong, I hope Ben has a stellar rookie season. That said, I have always been a big fan of Nitro Nori going back to the early days with Yamaha.

Likewise Mike. Only I'm not that old so I've only been enjoying him since his days on the Aprillia.


He's still in front after 1st Qualifying!

Only by a little though...

Well, Hopkin keeps racking up salary money and not returning any benefits to the team for it. It seems he had a nasty spill. With all that money and he can not buy a piece of good luck.

Spoiler:
This enfuriates me so, the first race is by far, the best race I have seen in a long while only to see Spies toss it away in the second race.

I am beginning to wonder if this kid is overwhelmed with all the publicity he is receiving from everyone? He had not crashed in 4 years racing in the AMA and now he's got 2 DNFs in 6 races? This will play on Haga's hand since all he need to do is keep the consistency of podiums and the Championship is for Haga to loose.

60 points is not as simple to get back barring some very bad luck on Haga/Ducati's Camp.

Only good thing is that you can teach Spies not to fall down and he'll still be fast if not faster.

The supersport race was ridiculous as well! I can't believe how wild those guys get.
