Here are the highlights to Race 1 at the final round of the 2010 World Superike Championship at Magny-Cours.

Yamaha Sterilgarda rider Cal Crutchlow had an eventually lonely win, by 3.779 seconds, but an intense battle behind went to Suzuki rider Leon Haslam and Althea Ducati rider Checa as they passed champion Aprilia rider Max Biaggi for the final podium places in the final chicane.

In fourth Biaggi still scored enough points to give Aprilia the Manufacturers’ Championship. Jakub Smrz (Pata B&G Aprilia) finished fifth.
