Corser and Haga Victorious at Valencia WSB

Aprilia’s Troy Corser was again strong today at the Valencia round of the WSB championship. He won the first race, and finished fifth in race two. Yamaha’s Noriyuki Haga took the most points on the day, finishing third in race one and winning race two (after catching and passing Ducati’s Ben Bostrom).

The big surprise, perhaps, was Ben Bostrom of the NCR Ducati team. Bostrom finished second in both races, and appeared to be on his way to victory in race two before Haga caught and passed him.

Honda’s Colin Edwards maintains a lead in the points’ race after finishing fourth and fifth in the two races.
