Yorkshire Post - Sports Monday - - CRICKET -

MO­TOR­CY­CLING: Michael van der Mark com­pleted an un­likely dou­ble with vic­tory in race two of the World Su­per­bike Cham­pi­onship at Don­ing­ton Park.

The Dutch­man, who had claimed his first ca­reer win in the first race on Satur­day, bat­tled from sixth on the grid to take vic­tory for his Yamaha team.

An action-packed race saw Van der Mark pick off his ri­vals to pip Tur­key’s To­prak Raz­gatli­oglu, who earned his coun­try’s first podium in sec­ond place.

Raz­gatli­oglu had him­self passed Jonathan Rea on the fi­nal lap, leav­ing the North­ern Ir­ish­man hav­ing to set­tle for third place.

Rea told Eurosport: “I used a lot of en­ergy and I’m re­ally dis­ap­pointed with my­self. My guys gave me a great bike and the bike was ready to win but I wasn’t.”
