Davies does the double…again!

There wasn’t much to write home about as we headed into day two of the World Superbikes championship in Jerez.

Chaz Davies took an outstanding victory, leading the race from start to finish. The KRT duo of Tom Sykes and Jonathan Rea just couldn’t catch up to the Ducati, and were left to fight their own battle for second.

It was everything to play for for Rea. He is leading the championship and was rooting for someone to get in between him and his team mate so he could wrap up the championship this weekend. It looked like Nicky Hayden could be that person, as he constantly shaved seconds off Sykes’ lap time. Ultimately, he just couldn’t catch him up and had to settle for fourth, with the championship being taken to Qatar to be decided.

We lost Leon Camier to the gravel very early on in the race, as he came to Jerez off a series of good results. We also lost Xavi Fores, who was locked in a battle for eighth with Jordi Torres.

We head to Qatar in two weeks’ time, where Jonathan Rea and Tom Sykes will be going to the wire for the championship win.
