What failed on Toprak`s Yamaha on Sunday, looked like a front brake caliper? Wonder oom Danie gaan se


They traced the broken-off fender as a problem caused by a mechanic that spent 3 weeks in a BMW workshop 13 years ago.

Nice hard fought win for Odendal today and it looks like Toprak is on his way to the title.

Sorry. It seems I was watching a replay of Portugal sbk on dstv yesterday.. Anyway Toprak did win but Steven came 4th.

I'll try not make any more rookie errors.

Rea's bike looked absolutely gorgeous but the "GPZ" attempt didn't work for me.....

Talk about bad luck and Steven Odendaal's name comes up:
"A Turn 1 crash dropped the South African rider to the back of the grid and a second crash, at Turn 15, forced Odendaal out of the race, with Aegerter clinching the Championship crown with a podium finish as he came home in third."
Duct tape can't fix stupid, but it can muffle the sound...

Janee.  Terrible luck.  The Turn 1 crash was also only because he had a lot of help from Gonsalves.  What a bummer.  The second crash was him just overdoing it in his mad dash to try and catch up.  Second in the championship is nothing to be ashamed off, so a huge shoutout to Steven!

Race 1 delayed by heavy rain by, at least, two hours.

I hope we get to see some racing today.

(Unfortunately, for me, Italian TV does not show the SSP races)

He won million times, he has young kids. I don't know maybe he should move to MotoGP then.

Both Rea and Toprak have made it very clear that they will not move to MotoGP, unless if to a factory team.  Neither are willing to go and ride 2nd class machinery on a limited budget.  I see their point and agree with them to some extend, but It looks like the satellite teams in MotoGP is now close enough to the factory teams to win races and even, with some luck, a championship.
