Not reading any posts because I've only watched race 1 from last weekend but JESUS CHRIST that sucked for davies. I thought he was gonna pull it off too. He had my asshole puckered the entire race just about. The ass of that bike was everywhere.

I like seeing Lowes doing alright, both yamahas were up there though not really in contention for anything. At least they're not getting totally smoked. Can't wait to watch race 2

Wild last lap in race 2! Not quite as exciting as the first race but still a good one. Good to see someone else win one lol

I get the feeling that VDM will be on the podium unless he crashes or has a bike problem. He goes well at his home track. Other than that, I'm guessing there will be a typical fight between Rea, Davies and Sykes at the front.

The question is who will win the WSS300 race?

Well that qualifying session was unbelievable. The Kawasaki guys were in the class of their own, so I figured it'd be them 2 at the front of the race. I did like the heated argument between Chaz and Rea in parc ferme while everyone was watching lol

But the race though...wtf?? 1 more fuckin lap is all that bike needed to last! I can't believe it shut of going into the chicane with 1 lap left. It was just starting to look like a good battle for the win after Chaz lead the whole time (surprisingly), and he was robbed of any chances

I think at this point Chaz's chances for the championship are gone unless Rea gets a few DNF's too.

And what happened to Laverty? He was in 6th with a couple of laps left then all of a sudden he was back in 9th.

The ZX10RRs are fast. They just powered past the RSV4 on the straight and didn't even look like they were working hard. Just blasted past with room to spare.

No wonder they're at the front.

Well race 2 was about what I expected to see at Assen after the qualifying. Looked like Chaz got stuck in the pack a few laps longer than the Kawasakis and lost touch with them. Still bitter about Chaz's DNF due to a mechanical.

So far, it's really looking like a repeat of 2015 and 2016. Rea is just a beast, there's no doubt about that. So freaking fast, smooth and consistent. He makes it looks easy.

So far in STK1000, it looks like the Ducati and the Kawasaki really are the bikes to have. They're good in stock trim and WSBK trim.

WSS was a good race...well at least for 2nd place. Lots of passing going on between the guys in 2nd-5th.

WSS300 though....now that was a shit-show! Scott Redding was with the commentators and he was basically like "These guys are crazy. They're using parts of the track that I never even knew existed!" lol. I lost count of how many times those guys went off the track. Feel bad for the dude that got ran over right at the end...that looked really painful. But that race was even crazier than any Moto 3 race I've seen!

FYI - Update on FuboTV app and what is shown on the BeIN channel:

1) They show both SBK races but don't broadcast any of the lower classes or qualification
2) They show all the MotoGP classes but don't show any of the practices or qualification
3) For MotoAmerica they're showing Superbike and Supersport races but if there have been RC390 Cup races at COTA or RoadAmerica they didn't show any of it.

BTW - the Rea victory parade is getting old even though I'm a fan. it was good to see Sykes give him a run for the money in race 2 but it sure seems like the championship is already over just 8 races in..... Maybe he'll run himself off the track a few times or maybe have a mechanical or two but he doesn't seem like the type to bin it a bunch of times to let anyone easily catch up.
