For better and for worse, Laverty was the protagonist in the WSBK opener in Phillip Island . In 1, the Suzuki rider stole the with a spectacular comeback seventh position to interrupt a streak of 94 races for the Japanese (the last win for the GSX-R back to 2010, in Kyalami, Africa) and win back-to- back on the different bikes (after from Aprilia). In Race 2, his blew up with seven to go while he was fighting at the top against Sylvain Guintoli (Aprilia) and Baz (Kawasaki), prompting the marshals to the red flags and stop the race, did not restart as the lap count was above 66 of the total distance.

It certainly ideal, said the Irishman. a perfect race, I thought I win another. The track was a little Guintoli had the pace, and the Kawasakis taking advantage of rear to get out of the corners really fast, but my was really agile and I felt I have really made up for the deficit and get first place

Still, Laverty made a strong statement when he Aprilia’s factory duo comprised of Melandri (the rider who him on the RSV4 . despite finishing him in the championship) and Sylvain Guintoli. The redeemed the Italian manufacturer a win in Race 2, confirming his fondness for the track, where he took a and a second place last

After having two surgeries the winter break to heal my and not being able to ride a for four months, this is the end of a for me, the new championship leader said. I had fun out and boosted my confidence lap after In Race 1, I just got greedy.

I was the during the warm-up session, and I could keep the same in the race. Unfortunately, the track proved to be different and I didn’t much tire left in the phases.

With Laverty and Guintoli in top the other riders had to settle for Melandri took second in Race 1, but went wide at 4 in Race 2, losing his podium and finishing in eighth position. A that the Italian, formerly BMW, blamed on lack of experience with the new bike, potential is a lot higher.

Tom Sykes opposite destinies. After with a blistered rear in Race 1, the Brit experimented with the setup of his ZX- 10R to take place in Race 2. In his first as the reigning world champion, he had more issues than those related with his Baz made a really aggressive on me in turn 4, which triggered a bad of events in the first race, observed.

I then found on the blind side of Davies, and crashed. I understand that a lot of get really excited in the first of the season, but I hope that a champion doesn’t put a target on my Anyway, Phillip Island has been my best track, so happy to leave with a few points before heading to more suitable circuits in

His allegedly aggressive teammate Baz second place in Race 2 to confidence after a crash-marred I really needed this as I crashed three times and my mechanics some extra the Frenchman said. It wasn’t to get back in the groove, but I managed to do so.

The of a harder compound for the front in race two really helped.

Giugliano led the way for Ducati . taking two fourth place finishes on the . which has confirmed the steady made during the off-season Phillip Island has been for the Panigale in the past). The same can be for Honda . as Jonathan Rea was fifth and respectively on the CBR1000RR . The bike needs to iron out some details, and the team scheduled two tests in Spain toward the end of one in Jerez and the other in Cartagena.

David Salom (Kawasaki) led the EVO with ninth and tenth finishes, while Aaron missed the points zone at his on the world stage with the EBR RX. The bike was the best that been all weekend, the American We found something in the warm-up which has helped us massively.

the end of the race I was thinking about not in the way of leaders, but we did what we set out to achieve, and was to finish both races and get a lot data. We can go to Aragon proud of we have achieved here.
