Troy Bayliss on pole at Assen
Troy Bayliss powered to his second Superpole of the year at Assen and his 20th in career with a time of 1'38.428, just a fraction slower than the new best lap he had previously set in the final minutes of free practice.
Second place on the grid went to Valencia winner Noriyuki Haga (Yamaha Motor Italia WSB), just a tenth away from Bayliss's pace, with Sterilgarda Go Eleven Ducati's Ruben Xaus right behind in third. The Spanish rider had been a lowly seventeenth in Friday qualifying, but was able to make major gains today and should also be a contender for victory in tomorrow's two 22-lap races.
"It's the first time here for us on the new 1098" said Bayliss. "We had a pretty good base setting, we've been working towards a better set-up and we've achieved that. I was really surprised with the 38.3 time I did in free practice, so I thought maybe it was possible to do a flat 38 or high 37. It wasn't to be but it was just enough to give me the pole and this is a great position to start tomorrow. Regarding my bicycle injury, there are always some niggling problems that you have being a motorcycle racer, it's not very often that you are fully fit but I'm feeling OK and there are no problems at all."
"Of course I am very happy with second place because I get onto the front row for the first time this year" said Haga. "I think it's going to be a tough race for tomorrow but I have already decided for the tyre and nearly decided for the settings for the bike so I feel good for tomorrow. Everyone is thinking about winning here, but as I said before it's not easy and I will try to do my best."
He got the double dutch :drunk:
WSB is about to expand.
Next year the world superbike campionship will have 36 riders on the grid.
BMW has anounced it`s entrance in the serie`s and the rumours goes that also Aprillia is making a comback to the serie`s.
Troy Corser on the Aprilia RSV1000
If al 36 riders are on the grid in so far unknown.
Would be great to see 36 superbike`s on the grid do.
Ten Kate takes double
Ryuichi Kiyonari took his maiden World Superbike Championship victory at Brands Hatch – and then made it a double.
The Ten Kate Honda rider won the first encounter despite dropping from third down to seventh at the start. The retirements of Tom Sykes and Noriyuki Haga helped his cause as he made his way back through the field to battle with Ducati pole-sitter and championship leader Troy Bayliss. After two failed attempts to pass Bayliss at Paddock Hill bend, 'Kiyo' made a move into Hawthorn stick just four laps from the end. He then fended off pressure from Bayliss to cross the line first, with Max Biaggi in third.
In the second race Bayliss led the field again, but things didn't go his way and he finished the race in tenth place. Former British Superbike champion Kiyonari was left dicing with Haga and although the lead changed several times, the Honda man came through for his second win of the day, with Troy Corser finishing third. British Superbike rider Sykes, who was a wild-card entry, made up for his earlier disappointment by finishing the race in seventh place.
"I was under much pressure from Noriyuki Haga," said Kiyonari. "I made some mistakes at the last corner but I still took the victory. My bike has been very good this weekend and I was pleased to win at Brands Hatch – it's like a second home and I want to say thanks to the British fans.
British rider Craig Jones has died following his accident in Sunday's British round of the World Supersport Championship.
The 23-year-old from Northwich fell as he challenged for the lead in the race at Brands Hatch and was hit by a following rider.
The race was immediately stopped and Jones received medical attention at the circuit before being air-lifted to the Royal London Hospital for further treatment.
However, he died in the early hours of Monday morning.
Jones' team manager at Parkalgar Honda, Simon Buckmaster, said: "It is with great sadness that we learned Craig passed away in the early hours.
"The team's thoughts are with Craig's family and friends at this very difficult time. His family pass on their thanks to all well-wishers
