2009 Magny-Cours World Superbikes Race 1 Result - Championship Tight As Ever

Results:

Ben Spies won the first World Superbike race at Magny-Cours, holding off a final lap charge from Noriyuki Haga to recapture the lead in the World Championship. Spies got away early and led all of the race, while Haga was stuck behind Jonny Rea and Max Biaggi. After Rea crashed out, Haga took ten more laps to get past the Italian veteran, before starting to chase down Spies. His attack fell just short, Spies immediately taking back the place he briefly lost to Haga, putting Spies back in the driving seat for the World Superbike title, but by a mere two points.
