Guintoli wins WSBK Magny-Cours first race

How delightful it was to see Sylvain win first race today. After being fired mid-championship from Liberty Racing  for spurious reasons ("bad results", they say ...), Sylvain teamed up with Pata to race (almost) the same Ducati 1198R.
Rather obvious it was already, but now with Liberty Racing's withdrawal from Magny-Cours round, it is so blatant that they had money problems and put it all down on their riders ... Pitiful.
That said, Sylvain has a wonderful season ending with a podium at last week's Portimao. He' said to be riding a Suzuki in WSBK next year with Crescent apparently.
