Rea scores first WSS win at Brno

David Salom crossed the line fourth to keep himself in the title hunt, just a single point behind Foret and Parkes now, while Roberto Tamburini prevailed in an entertaining scrap with Sam Lowes to claim a top five finish on the Bike Service Yamaha.

Behind Lowes, former championship leader Luca Scassa completed a fairly ordinary weekend in seventh position, while James Ellison capitalised on Harms's retirement from eighth to assume that position at the chequered flag. Florian Marino finished ninth, while Vittorio Iannuzzo snared a top ten finish after Miguel Praia and Ondrej Jezek crashed out late on.

A race of fairly high attrition, Danilo Dell'Omo scored points for the Suriano Triumph team in 11th, ahead of Alexander Lundh, Imre Toth, Luca Marconi (scoring his first points) and Massimo Roccoli, who recovered to 15th after an earlier fall.

So pleased for Gino, it's been a long time coming but everyone could see he had the talent to get there. A very well deserved win, with hopefully more to follow. And pretty amazing to see the ripped leathers on his elbow where he was holding the bike up!
