TitleFightersblog.jpgRYUICHI Kiyonari and Tommy Hill will this weekend lead the title fighters into Croft Circuit as the MCE Insurance British Superbike Championship enters The Showdown.

The pair are the joint leaders in the series now, but are only one point clear of Josh Brookes, who will be looking to dominate this weekend as the series roars into Burning Rubber's local track for Round 10.

The action in the country's premier series is now entering the "Showdown" phase, with six riders - "the title-fighters" - all in close contention going into the final seven races and three rounds.

TODAY the motorcycle racing world has been rocked by the tragic death of Japanese rider Shoya Tomizawa.

The 19-year-old died earlier this afternoon as a result of injuries sustained in a crash in this morning's Moto2 GP race at Misano, San Marino.

The star, who made history at the start of the season when he won the first ever Moto2 race at Qatar, fell from his Suter Racing machine while sitting in fourth place after completing 15 laps.

Once again it was HANNSpree Ten Kate rider Jonathan Rea who crossed the line second, but this time it was Alitalia Aprilia's Leon Camier who took a solid third - after starting from 16th on the grid.

CAL Crutchlow finally converted pole into the win as he took his maiden WSB win at Silverstone.

The firey Brit, who has started from the top spot five times this season, had been desperate to bag his first win since joining the series this year.

But in front of his home crowd the reigning World Supersport champ got the better of fellow Brit Jonathan Rea and grabbed a convincing win onboard the Yamaha Sterilgarda machine to lead a British one-two-three across the line.

However this time it was a different bike which launched into the lead at the start.
