heroic sporting performance of the weekend goes to:
no, america, not tiger woods, grimacing in pain as he forced a playoff in the u.s. golf open, but noriyuki haga. wrestling a 1000cc superbike to an amazing double victory in the world superbike championship round at germany's historic nurburgring.
haga won both races, despite riding with six pins in a right collar bone after fracturing it two weeks ago after a crash at miller motorsports park, utah.
and what an incredible second race. wow.
...oohh, that shot really took some balls, tiger.
and father's day definitely belonged to haga, with his son watching from the pits ride a world superbike to victory.
