2017 WSBK/WSSP Round 1 Philip Island *SPOILERS*

What a brilliant race for Leon! Finished in 5th place which is amazing considering he got all of 6 laps across the first two practice sessions. He will start in 2nd on the grid for race 2 based on the new grid rules.

Brilliant by P.J. as well getting pole for the WSSP race tomorrow. He seems to have taken to the F3 like a duck to water

Great to have racing back again!!

Great result for Leon. Stayed with the lead group most of the race. Can't wait to see how race two turns out with the new starting grid.

Bloody brilliant.
Congrats for Saturday's efforts.

It ain't what you ride, it's the way you ride it.

The MV did not seem to have the top speed to stay with the other bikes on the front straight but definitely made up for it in the tighter sections

Crazy WSSP race! Congrats Roby Rolfo!! Won despite having a dislocated shoulder!

And just like usual the "factory" team has gear box issues.

WSS: 0.001 between first and second. Insane finish.
I dont know what Alex Baldolini was doing, but he wasnt focussed at all. Shaking his head multiple times. He gave away a great end result.
Funny how PJ Still became 6th

BTW: where was Alessandro Zaccone?? I thought he was 2nd factory rider for MV Agusta RC.

Looking forward to the season. PJ was posting the fastest laps as he was coming through traffic.

Now that was fun!!

What a beast of a motorcycle!
It growls and rages and flies across the tarmac like a wild animal that has escaped the confinement of a cage and after merely waiting restlessly until the release, will not endure being locked up ever again.
