WSS: Laverty makes headway at Brno

Eugene Laverty was frustrated at not being able to take full advantage of Cal Crutchlow's retirement from the lead during the tenth round of the World Supersport Championship, the title chaser having to settle for fifth place himself.

Laverty qualified second on the grid, but his hopes of keeping up with Crutchlow were ended before the race had even started following a heavy crash during warm-up that required significant repairs.

Despite a valiant attempt to keep up with the leaders, Laverty had fallen well out of contention when Crutchlow began to cruise into retirement, the Parkalgar Honda rider unable to challenge the four riders ahead of him for the win.

Nonetheless, the 11 points achieved have reduced Crutchlow's margin to 17 points with four races remaining this season.

β€œIt's not the result I had hoped for but at least I've pulled some points back on Cal. My crash this morning left us with a lot of work to and although my Parkalgar Honda was ready for the race it didn't feel quite the same. We have a bit of a break now so we can put this behind us and get ready for Germany.”
