Cal Crutchlow...disappointing performance from pole-sitter
Ryuichi Kiyonari and Ulsterman Jonathan Rea made it a one-two double for HM Plant Honda at today's Croft BSB meet.
Kiyonari put on a stunning display in race two to secure his second win of the day from team mate Rea. It was Kiyo's 9th victory of the season. Tom Sykes scored a sensational double-podium, taking third in both races.
It wasn't a good day for Rizla Suzuki. Nottinghamshire's Chris Walker collided with Karl Harris early in race two, and pole-sitter Cal Crutchlow followed form by lobbing it towards the end of the day, after holding a promising fourth for most of the race.
The win extends Kiyonari's lead in the championship to 26 points with only six races remaining.
