First Blood to the 1098

And before I sign out, congratulations to Ducati.  On the maiden race weekend of their new 1098 Superbike, Ducati’s Troy Bayliss won the first race of the World Superbike season in Qatar from fellow Ducati pilot (and former Rossi whipping boy) Max Biaggi.  Suzuki’s Fonsi Nieto won the second race, but five Ducatis followed him home in places 2-6.

All told, Ducati placed five bikes in the top ten in race one (places 1, 2, 4, 9, and 10) and six in the top ten in race two (places 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, and 9).  Not a bad outing for the first race on a new bike.  Maybe good enough to have the rules tweaked against them, even.  We’ll have to see.  Anyway, good job, Ducati Corse!
