Rea double in Imola

Island resident Jonathan Rea continued his dominance of the World Superbike series by winning both races at Imola over the weekend, repeating his double success at the circuit in 2014.

The Northern Irishman came home ahead of Kawasaki team-mate Tom Sykes in race one, which was reduced to a six-lap sprint after the event was red-flagged.

Rea saw off Sykes again in race two to make it four wins in a row in the championship and eight from 10 starts.

The 28-year-old leads nearest rival Leon Haslam by 87 points in the series.
