    Forgot to add my question. LOL

    Why is Haga not seen on the Podium in any of the Podium pics? They only place you see him with his trophy is in the garage.

  • TexusTim

    look at all the suzuki’s at the top……way to go team kagayama ! wow those two man teams must have iron butt’s and sore ass at the end !

  • Peter G

    Two man teams ?

    I covered the 1990, 1994 and 1997 races and , as far as I can recall, they were always 2 man teams. Lap times are about 4 to 5 seconds a lap faster now.

    Its hot, hard work .

  • “3 Team Kagayama Suzuki Kagayama – Schwantz – Haga +1 Lap”

    Well done! *golf clap*

  • Gutterslob

    Like they said on Soup – The Feel Good Podium of the Year.

    Shame that Rae got taken out, though.

  • Why is no one writing an article comment on the fact that a 49-year-old legend just placed third at Suzuka? Shwantz was my hero growing up it’s absolutely amazing and unprecedented that he still at that level come on, write a piece. It’s like Jordan in the 2013 playoffs scoring a triple double.

  • TexusTim

    @Peter G…yes thats what I said “two man teams”…there are only a few..7 to be exact out of 50 teams that finished or scored points…so thats about 14 %….so my point is the two man teams had longer stints on the bike,,,not how fast there lap times were but how many laps they had to do compared to the more common three man teams..when I ran endurance about an hour and twenty is all before you start doing stupid things and wonder why your team doesnot have the next rider ready since you been slapping you helmet on every lap for 15 minutes but your team is all talking up the gal that sung the natl anthem and havent noticed you want to come in….it happpened…. when i finally roled in they said “why didnt you let us know you were done”?

  • taikebo

    why on earth did McGuinness not win this race? He was supposed to win this race. He is not a human.

  • Kent

    @Tim: Haga-san wasn’t on the podium because he ran the last stint, which had rain falling in darkness, and he refused to come in and change to rain tires because it would cost too much time, especially with the SERT team right on their heels. He was totally spent at the end of the race, and had to go into the medical center due to effects of heat exhaustion/dehydration.
