2013 Monza World Superbike

The same three riders achieved podium results in both races at Monza in Italy Sunday for round four of the 2013 World Superbike Championship.

Unlike last year’s round when race one was cancelled due to rain, this year’s doubleheader at Monza was held under dry conditions.

Kawasaki Racing’s Tom Sykes was in the most optimal position at the start of both races, the ZX-10R Ninja pilot winning the Superpole at Monza, which was his third one this season, and 14th of his World SBK Career.

Although Sykes did reach the podium in both races, he didn’t take a win. The victor in race one was the hometown rider who was quickest in the qualifying sessions, BMW Motorrad GoldBet’s Marco Melandri.

The Italian was joined on the race-one podium by Sykes and Aprilia Racing’s Eugene Laverty, respectively. In race two, Laverty would take the win ahead of Melandri and Sykes, respectively.

With his 4-4 finishes at Monza, Aprilia Racing’s Sylvain Guintoli retains the World SBK points lead with 137, 13 ahead of Laverty. Sykes is in third with 119, and Melandri fourth with 96.

Attached above are video highlights of the World Superbike races, and also the World Supersport race that was won by Yamaha’s Sam Lowes. For a review of 2013 Monza World Superbike, click here.
