Fantasy Riders Round 3

Well, Phil & Myself headed to Donington Park yesterday to see the Brit Showdown in full swing at the World Superbikes. Unfortunantely it didn't got quite to plan. It looked like Leon Haslam was going to show them how its done, but former MotoGP star Marco Melandri on his Yamaha R1 (I passed the team trucks on the M1 this morning) took 1st place. Congratulations to Czech's Jakub Smrz who pretty much lead the whole race but lost out to Marco in the final laps and finished 2nd with Carlos Checa stealing 3rd from Leon in the final lap into the Melbourne Loop.

The podium champagne spaying looked interesting with 1st place going to Carlos Checa, 2nd Marco Melandri and 3rd to Brit Leon Camier.

Next weekend is back to MotoGP at Jerez on Sunday 3rd April; the cut-off for changes is Friday 1st April 17:00 hours.

With defending 2010 Champion Jorge Lorenzo hanging onto second place, Dani Pedrosa had to settle for third, even with a re-occuring injury.

Graham's Goofy's Goers are still sitting top of the league.

Fantasy Riders Round 1

The first round of the World Superbikes kicked off on Sunday 27th February at Phillip Island in Australia.

The "old guard" put on a real show for the young guns, who are now in no doubt that the experience of the likes of Spaniard Carlos Checa who gained maximum points with a double race victory having qualified pole position, 2010 World Superbike Max Biaggi scored two second places, and Marco Melandri are going to be tough competition this year.

Brit Leon Haslam and Marco both gained a third place each to round off the podium.

The Jagger Racing league results are shown below:-

The next race is in Qatar, with the MotoGP boys taking to the track on Sunday 20th March; the competition cut-off for changes will be 17:00 UTC Friday 18th March.
