Melandri should be good in the race still. BMW's make strong starts.
Felt bad for Melandri. I had a feeling he was about to start a good charge. At least Checa seems okay, but bnged.
Despite his strong qualifying, I think Laverty will fall back. I'm interested in seeing if the Kawasaki has done anything to improve their long run pace. Sykes doesn't seem to have the qualifying advantage he used to, and I hope that means a payoff in the races, but we'll see.
