Phillip Island Race 1

What a race. Bad incident at the start on the grid that required a red flag first lap that resulted in a 3 bike incident after the red flag was brought out.
Fortunately despite how bad it looked they all restarted with the exception of one rider who broke his arm after riding straight into the back of Fabrizio. The impact was such that Fabrizio's right boot was completely ripped off and look below where he finished!
Bayliss ran away with it after poor old Max (Biaggi) threw it with about 6 laps to go. Xaus fought hammer and tongue with both Corser and Fabrizio but finished 4th.
This is what motorcycle racing is all about. Race 2 soon - WOW!
1st Bayliss (Aus) Ducati 1098 F08
2nd Corser (Aus) Yamaha YZF R1
3rd Fabrizio (It) Ducati 1098 F08
