It's going to look bad for the rest of us if we let a rookie win in his first year in the league.

I'm tryin'! :lol:

Interesting movement in the EOE Cup. I managed to gain a little ground on Biking Sailor, so the race for the championship continues to tighten. Meanwhile, Team HM Faceplant and Punk Ass Kid swapped positions for the second race in a row as they fight over the third spot on the podium. Both HM Faceplant and Team Motodog scored 115 points this weekend, which is a damn good showing.

If drafting would help, I'd stay in line.    :)

Got that right !! If not for my Austin DNF I'd be in my rightful spot on top of the standings.

Only one change in the standings this week and it's at the top. The race for the EOE Cup is tighter than ever. Update after Austria:

All three races were enjoyable again, especially the last 3 to 4 laps.  What's going on with Ducati lately?  They seem to be getting things right with Yamaha getting it so wrong.

I caught that too. Made me smile.

Haven't seen Moto2 yet but the Moto3 race was excellent.

122. But that didn't even get me in the top 300 worldwide for the weekend. I think that's about the same number of points I got in the last race last year that put me tied for second worldwide for the race. Apparently everyone knew Marquez and the Ducatis were going to be duking it out in Austria.

Update after Misano: Biking Sailor retakes the lead. Everybody, please check your points and tell me if the table below is wrong because there was some weirdness in the points standings this week.*

*Postscript: After looking at the numbers, I think the game gave everybody one point for Silverstone. That's the only way I can figure that the numbers add up. Maybe their system wouldn't accept a zero, so everyone got a point.
