WSBK Rider of the Day: Donington Park

The fifth round of the 2012 World Superbike Championship at Donington Park proved an action-packed and dramatic affair.

A stunning day of racing began with Marco Melandri handing BMW their first ever WSBK win, in a race also led for large parts by his team-mate Leon Haslam (second) and Kawasaki's pole sitter Tom Sykes (third).

Race two raised the standard to new heights as Haslam, Melandri, Sykes, Honda's Jonathan Rea and Aprilia's Max Biaggi slogged it out at the front - victory going to Rea after contact at the final turn resulted in both BMWs hitting the deck.
