He was taken to hospital and was said to be in a stable condition, would like to know how he crashed though.

You can't argue that MV and Jordi are having really bad luck this year.
Last race Laverty laid his bike in front of Jordi, this time did it Camier.
What a shame the F4 was really fast this weekend.

Super Sport- 1 MV broke and 1 crashed. Oh well. Torres saved the day with an 8th place finish in race 2

I wonder if the F3 broke from spending too much time in the slipstream of the Yamahas. Running at a higher RPM than it should? It was a great to see the MV up there when no other team could keep up.

I was watching with my wife and she commented that the MV looked really fast. No sooner had I said that it was gonna blow up...it did. And I felt like shit. Not MVs year this year.

Swissn 3 cylinder on a high horsepower track. The F3 likes mid size technical handling tracks. The Triumph 675 triple does well on tight technical tracks and they are privateers.


Torres is qualifying well and fought with Sykes most of the race . Good sign considering Aragon is a horsepower track.

Whats up with Melandris Ducati1199R? Anouncers said it was because of drafting 2 bikes but if you look close many times Melandri was too far back to be drafting and still had high speed wobble. Davies doesn't have the wobble. Its like the plys inside of the Carbon fiber airbox have separated somewhere and its caused a lack of integrity has occurred.


Suzuki dominated Yamaha yet again in MotoAmerica when is Suzuki coming into WSBK?
