Double top for Bayliss

Author: HANNspree Press Release
Posted on: Sunday, Jul 20 2008



Polesitter Bayliss had a poor start from the line in the first race, but regained the lead on lap 12 and maintained his position until the chequered flag. Second place went to fellow Australian Troy Corser while the final position on the podium went to Michel Fabrizio.

Race two was a similar story, with Bayliss again taking the top spot on the podium. Fabrizio finished in second place while Max Biaggi brought his Ducati home in third. Bayliss now leads the championship standings by 79 points over second placed Max Neukirchner.

Meanwhile, Ryuichi Kiyonari had a positive day at the Czech Republic event - he was the top finishing HANNspree-supported rider in both races with fifth and sixth places. His HANNspree Ten Kate Honda team-mate Carlos Checa had a less positive day, finishing eighth in race one and retiring from race two with technical problems.

Third HANNspree Ten Kate Honda rider Kenan Sofuoglu also did well to finish tenth in both races, while HANNspree Honda Althea's Roberto Rolfo scored 12th place in race two.
