Aprilia dominated Race 1 at Laguna Seca earlier today with Marco Melandri taking the win just ahead of teammate Sylvain Guintoli. Defending champ Tom Sykes (Kawasaki) finished in third position a short distance behind the Aprilia duo.
While Race 1 was somewhat uneventful, Race 2 was a different story. Stopped and restarted twice as a result of crashes, Race 2 ended up being a 7-lap sprint. Ultimately, Sykes took the win ahead of Guintoli in second and Jonathan Rea (Honda) in third.
Sykes’ points lead is now at 44. For additional details, results and points visit the official WSB site.
