Lowes 'frustrated' to miss out on double at Oulton

'It is a bit frustrating in a sense not to have made it a double, but it was enjoyable and we had a bit of a dust up at the end of the races' - Alex Lowes
Samsung Honda's Alex Lowes left Oulton Park holding the MCE British Superbike Championship lead but the Lincoln man was disappointed to miss out on a double.

Lowes has yet to finish off the podium in the opening three rounds of the championship and followed up his pole start in race one with his first victory of the campaign as close rival Shane Byrne crashed out at Britten's on the Rapid Solicitors Kawasaki.

The Honda rider tops the standings by a single point from Byrne, who hit back with a win in race two, ahead of round four at Knockhill in Scotland.

Lowes enjoyed a spell at the front in the second race but in the end was passed by Byrne and Tyco Suzuki's Josh Brookes as he secured the final place on the podium.

“It is a bit frustrating in a sense not to have made it a double, but it was enjoyable and we had a bit of a dust up at the end of the races,” he said.

“The rising track temperatures didn't help me, but I'm not making excuses - I had fun out there and maintained my 100 per-cent podium record for the season.

“Once 'Shakey' gets away he is hard to beat but I am enjoying being out there with him and Josh and having good battles with them.”
