Race 2 will have to wait. Gotta get up early for another track day.

LOL. I'm rooting for him over the Kawis. Rea over Sykes any day. Honda should have given Nicky nitrous and enough gas to last the entire race. Their "new" bike is pathetic!

Not sure if you saw Bradl's post race comments, he said the the throttle/rear tire is very poor, as the race wore on.
Too much spinning, not enough feel, for what is going on. Hayden needs to consider retirement, supposedly the new v4 replacement sbk won't be introduced until 2019 MY.

May as well quit, while he can still walk without a cane, or other assistance, because it appears the only way he'll get top 5's on that turd the next two years is by dive-bombing.

WSS

WOW, who else saw the end of WSS round 1?

Not sure if it was Cluzel (EDIT: it was Cluzel) or the other guy, who flew further- horizontally no less- than anyone I've ever seen.

Revised margin of victory .001 Rolfo declared winner after initial report of Mahias as winner.

Awesome action.
I did not get to see the start, pj had pole, not sure why he was 15th with 6 laps to go, but he finished 6th.


EDIT
..This blond that beIN Sports has doing in studio commentary continues to assert that Rolfo was "given the win by race direction after review of the elbow from Mahias"

She even said this as they showed the ACTUAL photo at the finish line, clearly showing Rolfo's wheel ahead of Mahias' wheel by a few inches! The transponder on Mahias' bike obviously was placed further forward on his bike than it was on Rolfo's bike.

Does beIN replay these?

I just got beIN on Dish so I could watch, but the broadcast are live and on the East Coast USA that puts the air time awfully late for me. I have a job that requires me to get up at 4 am most mornings.

Yes, they do.
Their programming schedule description, is not very accurate sometimes. Search hour by hour on your on-screen menu, or go online to their site, and find anything with motorcycle in the title.

The alternative is to buy a season pass to wsbk dot com, which gives you the ability to watch practice, qualifying, superpole, the races as much as you want, when you want.

They replayed race 1 before WSS and race 2 last night, but I didn't watch, due to already having peeked at the results online. If I did, I wouldn't have missed the opening laps of WSS, and would have known PJ ran off track after a red flag restart which he got a poor start from pole, for the second time that day.

The best thing about beIN's coverage-flag to flag commercial break free-coverage!!!
Suck it, FS1/2!

Yet another alternative is to know in advance the schedule of the races (MotoGP, WSBK) as they relate to your time zone, and tune in to beIN, at that time.

All three races were very exciting. Race 2 was very exciting, it didnt seem as if there was as much sandbagging as the first race.

Sykes is still struggling with the rule changes to the Kawi. Melandri can be a strong force if he can ride the Duc with a bit of restraint. Rea and Davies are still very strong and it will be a Davies vs Rea season again. I'm hoping Lowes can sneak in with a win or two on the Yami. He looked very good out there, especially with the Yami being down on power. I was hoping Laverty could have been stronger, but the Ape needs some more development. Honda is going to catch up with this new bike, but they will not be able to battle consistently with the Ducs nor the Kawis this year. Althea BMW will be a mid pack bike yet again. They will need full factory support to make the S1000RR a front runner.
