    I didn't see it, but reading Crash.net he got up to 20s, then backed off and maintained it.

    The superpole race was decent, now if they just introduced a reverse grid for the last race.....

    Supersport was crap no place for pit stops in a short race.

    superbike was good though, I see Rea is already complaining about the Ducati being a £24k bike as it has an advantage. No mention of the V4’s that didn’t have a faster rider on and no mention of the £24k Honda or £21k Yamaha.....first time he’s challenged and he’s whining

    The top speed of the Ducati V4 was impressive, but even more impressive was the lack of tyre wear.

    Quite funny that Rea is complaining about the retail cost of the Ducati given the very large amount of money Kawasaki have put into development of their WSB bike while putting nothing into MotoGP.

    Hope that Bautista keeps on winning and that Rea keeps on whingeing.

    Always struggled to be a fan of Rea and he isnít helping the cause now, it all proves MotoGP is a big step above wsb.

    But for him to moan that his expensive edition isnít as good as another makers expensive edition is just sour grapes especially as 3 of them finished behind him.

    does it though ? Look at Melandri.... He was up the sharp end of MotoGP... Came into WSB and did well, but not blindingly well.... Even riders like Baz, he's equally as 'average' in both WSB and MotoGP.

    I think Bautista did brilliantly... but that's it, it doesn't prove all the MotoGP guys are gods and the WSB riders are crap. When Rea went to GPs for the weekend he had a 6th and 7th, not that far off the pace.... So could be argued he was about where Bautista was mostly... Lets be honest, Bautista for a large chunk wasn't even that high... (Admittedly on a lower spec Ducati).

    You do remember what Bautista did on the Suzuki and he is a world champion. Was Melandri still at the front when he made the move ?, whatever it has made WSB interesting for me this year

    Its only the first round, as the commentator said , Marco Melandri won last years Phillip Isl
    and never won another race.

    Rea will be world champ this year

    Champ in fucking moaning. He got his arse on a plate in the sprint race, then whined like a milk float.

    So it's official then? We don't like Rea?

    And WSB was rubbish because Rea used to piss off and win by a country mile, but it's good now 'cos Bautista pissed off and won by a country mile?

    Rea won all them races coz he had the best bike for 4 years. Now he's crying coz he ain't got the best bike any more. Boo hoo.
