It's been a while since I've seen a superman highside. Hopefully he figured it all out for tomorrow. He had pace.

Haslam's headplant was pretty impressive too.

Yeah that was a real bummer. The BMW boys are unhappy with him too. Hope everybody has a better day tomorrow!

I didn't see a replay showing him too much at fault. To me, it looked like Sykes gave an extra tip in just as Gerloff was there; it was almost as if Sykes knew he was going to bump him yet didn't care. His jerk off wanker reaction in the pits kinda confirmed it for me. He didn't look too pissed to me, probably knew it was his own doing.

Gerloff sure knows how to make the highlight reel. Unfortunately, it was also the high side reel. Glad everyone who fell is OK. Laverty took a beating as did Haslam.

Excited for Gerloff to get another chance tomorrow. Redding usually improves on Sunday and Toprak sure got a feel for the rain so the SuperPole race and Race two will be good.

Laverty took a good whooping. Tough dude.

So is Haslem.

I expect more bikes near the front on day two.
Looking forward to Gerloff being in the mix.

We know Rea will be.

Chaz Davies and Loris Baz have done really well lately.

If you were the team manager of Ducati or Yamaha, who would you pick for 2021 ?

Davies or Rinaldi ?
Baz or Gerloff ?

Chaz's results have been good once he got the bike working the way he wants and he did his job to keep Rea behind him and send the championship battle to Estoril. Chaz is also looking good for third in the championship and Ducati is just 26 points back of Kawasaki in the manufacturers championship which is a big deal for Ducati.

Rinaldi is not being held back by the GoEleven team and could probably use another learning year there. They get tons of support from Ducati. Redding has been vocal about keeping Davies because he wants development done for tall riders and fears that won't happen if Rinaldi gets promoted.

For Yamaha, I'd keep Gerloff on the Junior team at the very least. I'd probably wait to see what happens with Ducati to see about signing Davies and if there is a domino effect should Chaz leave Ducati. Yamaha is in the enviable position of offering a good bike and having several riders to choose from. Don't know whats going to happen.


Anyway, glad to see the championship go down the last round - and that round not be Qatar. Its so anti-climactic to have a championship battle wrap up at that place. No one has data for Estoril which probably works in Rea's favor since his team can adapt that bike to anywhere and because Johnny Rea is Johnny Rea.

Looks like Beaubier won't make it to World SBK. Gerloff will stay

Good news for Gerloff. Yamaha is keeping their trend of hiring young riders.

Rinaldi is a lackluster choice for the factory team. Was hoping for a marquis name
