WSBK Championship standings - Brno

The fight is well and truly on for the 2009 World Superbike Championship after Ben Spies was able to whittle Noriyuki Haga's advantage down to seven points ahead of the prolonged summer break.

With Haga labouring with his shoulder and wrist injury, Spies had a perfect opportunity to capitalise, but while he went on to win race two, retirement in the first encounter at the hands of Michel Fabrizio means the Japanese rider stays in charge.

Crucially, he now has more than a month to get back to full fitness before the title fight resumes with eight races remaining.

Elsewhere, the big winner from Brno was Max Biaggi, his victory and second place finish pushing him back up to fifth overall and just six points adrift of Jonathan Rea in the battle for fourth.

Carlos Checa and Shane Byrne have also made up ground by leapfrogging Jakub Smrz to eighth and ninth respectively, although all three remain close on points.

Further back, Troy Corser is now BMW's leading representative after producing their first ever top five result, while other notable gainers include Matthieu Lagrive and Makoto Tamada, both of whom finished inside the top ten during the first race.

Finally, one more rider has made it onto the leaderboard after Vittorio Iannuzzo recorded his and the Squadra Corse Italia's first point of the season.
