Phillip Island: Tosleand Wins Race 2
James Toseland has won the second World Superbike race at Phillip Island after defending first place for most of the race. Troy Bayliss was second, with Noriyuki Haga third and Max Biaggi passing Troy Corser on the line to take fourth place by four hundredths of a second. Corser, Toseland and Bayliss began to ease away from the main pack on lap two, with Toseland taking first place on lap three. Haga caught the front three riders, leaving a four way fight for fifth place between Xaus, Biaggi, Laconi and Lanzi. Biaggi slowly broke away and reeled in the leaders, catching them on lap 11. Toseland and Bayliss were able to ease away from the fight for third, but Bayliss put Toseland under real pressure over the last four or five laps. Behind them Haga and Biaggi repeatedly swapped third place with Corser still in contention by the end of the race. A record 63,250 spectators have enjoyed this weekend’s racing at Phillip Island. 1 Toseland J. Hannspree Ten Kate Honda. Honda CBR1000RR 34'16.990 22 2 Bayliss T. Ducati Xerox Team.
