World SuperBikes - Valencia - Race 1

Watch Race 2 Live at 15:30 Euro Time.

image Max Neukirchner was leading from the first corner in a Pedrosa style ride on his Suzuki for Team Alstare Suzuki and didn't seem to be able to put a tyre wrong.  He stretched out a good lead on Baylis and the following riders.

But then came Carlos Checa having a fantastic ride on his Hannspree Ten Kate Honda.  He'd got off to a bad start but soon made up for it and he was tearing through the field in front of his home crowd and was just about to take the lead on the last corner of the last lap when his grip failed and both he and Neukirchner imageended up in the gravel.  Checa immediately remounted and came in 5th but Neukirchner was out of the race.
