WSBK Championship standings - Monza

Ben Spies put a small dent into Noriyuki Haga's championship lead at Monza, despite both riders enduring differing fortunes between races one and two.

A 15th and a win for Spies trumps Haga's second and DNF, meaning Spies comes away from Italy having reduced the margin slightly by six points to 54.

Instead, arguably the big movers are their team-mates Michel Fabrizio and Tom Sykes. Fabrizio proved the day's highest scorer after a win and a second place finish, a points haul that lifts him to third position and even puts him within touching distance of Spies in second.

The ever consistent Sykes, meanwhile, moves into the top five for the first time following a pair of top six finishes, 13 points behind Leon Haslam, who endured a tough weekend at Monza.

Max Biaggi has also lifted himself up to sixth position, but will be ruing the 20 second penalty in the first race that dropped him from third to 11th position. Max Neukirchner, however, tumbles from fifth to ninth having been injured in a turn one crash.

Elsewhere, Ryuichi Kiyonari managed to almost double his points haul following a pair of podiums on the Ten Kate Honda, a result that lifts him back inside the top ten overall.
