HEREFORDSHIRE ace Chaz Davies thanked his bike manufacturer for supplying the parts he needed following an excellent double win in the second round of the World Superbike Championship.

The 29-year-old, from Kinsham, won both races at MotorLand Aragon in Spain and is now second in the championship standings on 105 points – 26 behind reigning champion Jonathan Rea.

"It was a dream weekend – the bike had been working fantastic for me," said Davies.

"Some new parts had been sent, which is definitely what we needed and I thank Ducati for that – they answered my calls."

Tom Sykes got the best getaway from pole position as teammate Rea also shot away from fifth on the grid.

But Davies and his Ducati team mate Davide Giugliano set upon Rea as the three battled for third.

However, Davies soon pulled the gap back and, with 15 laps remaining, took the lead from Sykes.

Davies never looked back and won the race a clear 4.168 seconds ahead of Rea.

And it was double delight for Davies after winning the second race to become the most successful World Superbike rider at the circuit.

Davies crossed the line 6.471 seconds clear of Sykes, with Rea completing the podium places.
