***Spoiler*** WSB Race 2

Alstare Suzuki Corona Extra's Yukio Kagayama backed up his first World Superbike win of the season with his second by winning race two at the Brno circuit in the Czech Republic.

And this time second place was also somewhat of a surprise with DFX Treme Honda's Michel Fabrizio finishing second, some 2.5 seconds behind the Suzuki rider. Fabrizio had finished third in the first race. Then came Yamaha's pole sitter Noriyuki Haga - but just barely over Alstare Suzuki Corona Extra's Troy Corser, the Australian coming up just .35 of a second behind Haga at the finish. Three seconds behind that pair came the Winston Ten Kate Honda of James Toseland, the Brit falling short of his race-one second-place finish.

Sixth place went to Fonsi Nieto on the first of the Kawasaki's, the PSG-1-backed rider finishing just behind Toseland and a few seconds ahead of Winston Ten Kate Honda's Karl Muggeridge.

World Championship points leader Troy Bayliss again struggled, though this time was able to score points. The Australian, who crashed out of race one, finished eighth in race two with his teammate Lorenzo Lanzi just a tick behind in ninth place. PSG-1 Kawasaki Corse's Chris Walker rounded out the top 10 finishers.

Even with his off day, Bayliss still holds a commanding lead in the championship point standings. The Australian is now 73 points ahead of Haga, 262-189. Toseland is just a point behind Haga with 188 and Corser is fourth with 173 points.

1. Yukio Kagayama (Suzuki)

2. Michel Fabrizio (Honda)

3. Nori Haga (Yamaha)

4. Troy Corser (Suzuki)

5. James Toseland (Honda)

6. Fonsi Nieto (Kawasaki)

Apparenty it wasn't the pass as such but the fact that Fabrizio claimed his brakes where at fault(yeah right);also i get the impression that Nori is still not enamoured with the Pirelli's.Actually saw a behind the scenes program on uk satellite tv from Brno and everyone was complaining of lack of grip(Haga,Walker,Corser etc).

I would be pissed too if the tires could only last for 6-8 laps in a 30 laps race. Except for Kagayama it seemed evreybody else was experiencing major tire issues. Obviousely the weather conditions were a major factor but it seems Pirelli has this durability problem at every race. It's a matter of who can conserve the tire the most and who has the best traction system.
