Eric Bostrom (Superbike) and Hacking (600 Supersport) Victorious at Pikes Peak

Kawasaki’s Eric Bostrom won his first Superbike race in two years today at Pikes Peak in Colorado. Suzuki’s Mat Mladin finished second (after team orders had teammate Aaron Yates slow on the last lap, to hand second place to Mladin). Yates finished third.

In the Superbike championship race, Mladin is now 19 points ahead of Honda’s Nicky Hayden going into the final round at Willow Springs next month.

The 600 Supersport race was won by Yamaha’s Jamie Hacking. The real winner, however, was Kawasaki’s Eric Bostrom in second place. His rival for the 600 championship this year, Honda’s Kurtis Roberts, crashed early in the race, and remounted to finish seventh. Bostrom therefore takes a significant eight point lead into the final round of the championship at Willow Springs. Third place today in 600 Supersport went to Yamaha’s Tommy Hayden.
