Early con­tender

With dou­ble vic­to­ries at both Aragon and Imola, Davies wasn’t far off Rea at the start of the sea­son and it looked as though the Welsh­man was only go­ing to get stronger.

Don­ing­ton dis­as­ter

Not one but two crashes in the open­ing race at Don­ing­ton Park marked the first of three DNFS from five races for Davies, hand­ing valu­able points to his Kawasaki ri­vals and wreck­ing his ti­tle hopes.

Late sea­son break­through

A set-up rev­e­la­tion at a test dur­ing WSB’S long sum­mer break saw Davies be­come the dom­i­nant force at the end of the sea­son with seven wins out of eight to hoist his 2016 win to­tal to 11, two more than Rea.
