Noriyuki Haga Hits Back Against the Pigeons

You may remember from this weekend’s World Superbike race at Monza that Noriyuki Haga had a bit of a run in with a flock of pigeons during Race 2, causing him to drop to 15th place by the time he crossed the finish line. In response to his avian encounter, the Japanese rider has updated his site with a humorous anti-pigeon campaign banner.

Haga doesn’t have to look far for supporters, as American Ben Spies is a likely candidate to join the club as well. The Texan also had tête-à-tête with a pigeon while lapping around the Italian track this last weekend, but was able to overcome it. Haga leads Spies in the WSBK series by 54 points.
