Max Biaggi (Aprilia) won the WSB championship earlier today in France by the narrowest margin ever…1/2 point! The unlucky second place finisher was Tom Sykes (Kawasaki).
While Biaggi crashed out of wet race 1, and could manage only fifth in race 2, Sykes had a good day with third place in race 1 and a win in race 2. Sylvain Guintoli (Ducati) took the win in race 1 ahead of second place Marco Melandri (BMW) and third place Sykes. Finishing immediately behind Sykes in race 2 were Jonathan Rea (Honda) in second and Guintoli in third.
