Great weekend for Steve Martin in Monza

Australian Steve Martin rode to two top ten finishes in the fourth round of the World Superbike championship in Monza this weekend.

He finished race one in ninth and then improved on that with a hard-fought seventh in race after a massive four-way fight that lasted all the way to the flag.

"It was a tough race," admitted Martin. "I didn't get the best start and so found myself with lots of traffic to deal with. Once I got past them I had to deal with four riders to claim seventh."

Steve was lucky to finish both races after running out of fuel on the cool-down lap.

"At least it was consistent," smiled Steve, "because I stopped in exactly the same spot after both races!"

Steve and the DFX Racing Team travel down to Misano for two days testing ahead of the next race at Oschersleben in two weeks time.

"I'm looking forward to Oschersleben, despite getting injured there last season, because it's a track we can go well at."

Martin is now eighth in the championship on 58 points after four rounds.
