Well it looks like the best riders in probably the best national series\nin the world are better than the WSB best.\n\nHmmm. Sorry about that, I just couldn't resist it. But really with\nShakey, Reynolds, Walker, Toseland, Emmett, Hodgeson all up at the front\nit could have been a BSB race. And Bayliss coming in 3rd as well in\nMotoGP it was a pretty good weekend for BSB regulars and past winners.\n\nIt was particularly good though to see Shakey get the double and\nReynolds push him all the way in the second race. If nothing else it was\ngreat racing and a great crowd. I've been rooting for Shakey ever since\nhe started as a staff writer at Fast Bikes and especially since the\nvideo of him powersliding a 'Busa in the south of France. It was great\nto see him finally come of age.\n\nDistinctly puzzling was that Kagayama wasn't faster. It'll be\ninteresting to find out what the story was there.
