Back fracture rules Davies out of Sunday's race

  Back fracture rules Davies out of Sunday's race Aruba.it Ducati’s Chaz Davies will miss the second race of the Rimini World Superbike round, after he sustained a fracture to his back in a collision with championship rival Jonathan Rea in race one. Davies and Rea were battling hard on the final lap of a dramatic opening race from Misano when the Ducati rider tucked the front end into Turn 13. Championship leader Rea was powerless to avoid the sliding Welshman and ran over the top of him, the Kawasaki rider also falling from his machine in the incident. Davies did get to his feet, but soon had to be carried off of the race track by the marshals, while Rea remounted his stricken ZX-10RR to finish third behind Yamaha’s Alex Lowes and Kawasaki team-mate Tom Sykes. Davies was taken to hospital in Rimini where scans revealed he had suffered a fracture of the transverse process of the third lumbar vertebrae. The Ducati rider, who is now 91 points adrift of the championship lead in third, will sit out Sunday’s second race, while his participation in the eighth round of the season at Laguna Seca in three weeks remains unknown. “The end of today’s race leaves a bitter taste in our mouth,” said Ducati Superbike project director Ernesto Marinelli. “Chaz and Marco (Melandri, team-mate) rode a memorable race, both showing they could win, but they crashed out during the last lap. “Marco will have another go at it tomorrow, while we’re deeply saddened by what happened to Chaz.

Last lap collision between Rea and Davies gifts Sykes victory

  Last lap collision between Rea and Davies gifts Sykes victory Tom Sykes took a shock victory in race one of the Rimini World Superbike round, a collision between Chaz Davies and Jonathan Rea gifting the Yorkshireman his second win of the season. The 21-lap race was a dramatic one from start to finish. Off the line, Yamaha’s Michael van der Mark scythed his way up to second, and moved into the lead ahead of Rea at the start of lap two. Davies demoted Rea to third on the following tour, while pole man Sykes had slipped behind the sister Aruba.it Ducati of Marco Melandri and was quickly dropping off the podium battle in fifth spot. Dutchman van der Mark held onto the lead for the next 10 laps, at one stage opening his advantage out to over a second. However, once he had cleared Davies, Rea reeled in the Yamaha rider, the gap down to just 0.4 seconds at the start of lap 15. Van der Mark kept Rea at bay as the lap went on, but crashed towards the end of the lap, a tyre problem seemingly the cause.

The trio ran line astern over the next five laps, Melandri’s hopes of victory dashed when he slid off at Turn 4 on the final tour. Davies held a slender 0.

“He will now observe a rest period, but he has a strong character and I’m sure he’ll tackle it with the same mettle he’s racing with.”

Third-placed Rea, whose championship lead was cut to 46 points as a result of the incident, ran over to Davies on his in-lap to check his condition. The Kawasaki rider later apologised for hitting him and expressed his disappointment at how the race ended for the pair of them.

“The plan was to just release the brake and go up the inside of Chaz on the last corner, but unfortunately for both of us it did not get that far,” he said.

“Especially for Chaz. He made a mistake and tucked the front and I am super sorry that I hit him, but I had absolutely nowhere to go.

“I hope he is OK. It was a shame for me and Chaz as we were fighting for the victory.”
