Voltcom Crescent Suzuki has come away from the penultimate World Superbike Championship round in Magny-Cours with nothing to show far after crashes in the wet for Alex Lowes and Eugene Laverty scuppered the chance of better results.

Lowes managed just three laps over the course of the day after technical difficulties brought on by a crash in morning warm-up saw him pull up early, before a crash in race two consigned him an another premature finish.

MotoGP-bound Eugene Laverty didn't fare much better, crashing on the fourth lap of race one before slipping from a potential top five finish in race two close to the chequered flag.

"Two non-finishes today in wet conditions really wasn't part of the plan," the Irishman said. "It seems that whenever I crash in race one this year I follow it up with another crash in race two! I never give up though, and I'm determined to finish the season on a high note.

"I'm really disappointed with the results," added Lowes. "We showed a lot of potential in qualifying yesterday and I had good pace in the wet this morning but the lack of grip in these conditions, and my lack of experience at Magny-Cours in the wet, cost us. There's not a lot to take from today but we will come back fighting in Qatar."

Unfortunately an all too familiar picture.
One of the Lowes brothers once again picking a bike up out of the gravel.
