Muggeridge ends Supersport season in style.

In the 11th and final round of the Supersport World Championship, Ten Kate Honda star Karl Muggeridge scored another race win today at Magny-Cours, his third straight success after victories in Assen and Imola.

The Aussie's countryman, team-mate, and new champion, Chris Vermeulen, took second, thus achieving his personal ambition of going over 200 points, with a total of 201, before moving to the SBK class in 2004.

Third in the race went to the forceful Jurgen van den Goorbergh, the Yamaha Belgarda rider regaining third overall in the series with a dramatic last gasp overtaking manoeuvre on Kalffi Honda's Sebastien Charpentier.

Alstare Suzuki's Stephane Chambon took fifth in front of his home crowd to secure second in the series, ahead of van den Goorbergh and Muggeridge. Such was the closeness of the fight for second that Chambon's total was 137, van den Goorbergh's 136 and Muggeridge's 134.

Pere Riba rode assuredly on a fading rear tyre to take sixth for Kawasaki in France, his native team-mate Foret having pulled in to retire. The Kawasaki duo ended the season with 2002 champ Foret ninth and Riba 11th in the title chase.
