The Czech round of the 2011 World Superbike Championship may not have thrown up much in the way of surprises, but in Max Biaggi and Marco Melandri, it did serve up an exquisite display of precision riding.
Barely separated throughout the two races, one win apiece was probably just reward for their efforts of shadowing one another with once coming into contact.
Naturally, both Biaggi and Melandri emerge as the weekend's two obvious standouts, though Carlos Checa did well to protect his championship advantage with a pair of third place finishes.
Behind them, Michel Fabrizio enjoyed one of his best weekends of the season for Suzuki with a brace of fourths, while Eugene Laverty made fifth place his own to consolidate his fourth in the standings.
Elsewhere, satellite BMW rider Ayrton Badovini continues his rapid ascension up the WSBK order with two sixth place finishes, meaning he has now scored more points in the last four rounds than Leon Haslam, Leon Camier and Fabrizio ahead of him.
Special mention must go to Leon Haslam, who forced his way to two solid results from a poor grid position, as did Joan Lascorz, who came into the top ten from 19th on the grid.
In the Supersport class, Gino Rea delivered one of the headlines of the weekend by claiming his maiden category win, a result that also signals a first win for Honda this season.
