    Haga will be feeling the pressure and Spies will return to top form to take the double. Ben doesn't seem to get to rattled.

    Let's see, Ben started today down three points, and ended the day down 10 points. Looks like Haga handled the pressure fine today.

    What's the point differential between first and second, 5 points if I remenber well.If Ben wins both and Nori is second they would end up tied... But Spies would win based on most win. Hell of a close finish!!! May the best one win!

    Spies had a tire issue that caused the slip up in race 2.

    It's time for the guys to either win it or bin it.

    Biaggi should certainly be up there. The RSV4 has done very well and next year it should be dialed in. Biaggi doesnt look like he is at the limit with the bike and looks as though he is very comfortable with it and the results are showing this.

    We need some TALENT on the RSV4 for a second rider...Biaggi is great and all but we need somebody as good or better to keep both bikes in the top 6.

    Can't blame equipment failure, it was a wrong tyre choice by rider/team...

    Not tire choice but an actual bad tire......according to the reports from the team. Or are you going by SPEED's commentator's speculation?

    Don't get Speed, fortunately..........that was from the post race info on Eurosport. Word was they'd gambled on a different tyre due to the temperature change but he couldn't get it to work.......although the stuff on Crash now calls it a 'faulty tyre'.......but as with all these things we may never know the truth!

    I read a post race interview that they did gamble on the rear tire. But it neither helped nor hurt them. The front tire was the faulty one.
