Troy bags a fifth and a fourth

Troy Corser concludes the season in style at Magny-Cours. He made a mockery of
his fourth row grid place to take a fifth and a fourth. A broken chain was all
that stood between Chris Vermeulen and two wins at the last round of the
Championship at Magny-Cours. The Australian Honda rider cruised to an easy
victory in race one and was fending off a hard-charging Caracchi Ducati’s
Lorenzo Lanzi in the second when his chain let go with more than half the race
run. Chris’s retirement then allowed Yukio Kagayama to add a second 2nd place to
the one he secured in the first encounter, with Toseland and Noriyuki Haga
gaining a 3rd each.

TROY - Race 1: 5th  Race 2: 4th

Obviously I was always going to have my work cut out starting from 16th on the
grid as it is very tricky to pass on this track unless you have a perfect
set-up. I made a few mistakes in the first race which meant I was always trying
to make up places again. I had a good start in the 2nd race but then at the
restart I got boxed in but had some great dicing along the way to fight my up to
4th. It’s not what I wanted but I feel I did as much as I could. I have to thank
Yukio for all the good work he did, particularly in testing, and the whole team
for making it a fantastic year.
