Castrol Honda's Colin Edwards rocketed to two wins and the lead of the World Superbike championship on a record-breaking day and in front of 78,000 fans at Assen in Holland today.

Edwards powered to the seventh double victory of his career with victory in today's second race after a start to finish win aboard the 1000cc SP-2 machine.

''I wanted to win both races today like I've never wanted wins,'' admitted Edwards.

''We didn't have the best two days of qualifying we've ever had but it all came together sweet in the races.''

''When I got the signal to say Troy (Bayliss) was out I just got my head down and concentrated on the chequered flag. Troy's been riding really well this year but at the moment I think I'm riding that little bit better.

''I suppose you could never have predicted what's happened today but it's made for a great finale at Imola in three weeks and I can't wait, I wish it was tomorrow.''
