Assen BSB: Ryde pinches last-lap Supersport win

Picture: Impact Images

Reigning Dickies British Supersport GP2 king Kyle Ryde pinched the Sprint race win from series leader Jack Kennedy this afternoon but the Irishman has extended his lead championship lead by 25 points.

Ryde and Kennedy were in a race-long duel for the win after Brad Jones crashed out in the early stages with Aussie wildcard Tom Toparis in the mix for the first six laps.

But Ryde and Kennedy pulled away as the laps clicked down and they began fencing for the lead and bragging rights.

Kennedy led on to the last lap but Ryde rode around the outside of the Integro Yamaha man at Meuvenmeer. Kennedy came back on the brakes into the final Geert Timmer chicane but Ryde had a better line and beat Kennedy on the run to the line.

Kennedy made it 15 Supersport wins in a row despite spending a lot of the last two days on the toilet but Ryde had the overall bragging rights.

Toparis took Supersport second with Richard Kerr third for the second race in succession. Mason Law took second in GP2 with Sam Wilford third.
