Tom Sykes: second in Brno
Britain's Tom Sykes finished the World Superbike Championship race in Brno in second place as a late collision with Jonathan Rea handed victory to Marco Melandri.
Kawasaki Racing Team rider Sykes led for much of the race, only to collide with Rea while entering a corner near the end of the race.
The crash enabled BMW Motorrad Motorsport's Melandri to power to victory, having pulled himself out of a position in the middle of the pack.
Sykes' team-mate Loris took third, Carlos Checa of Althea Racing Ducati fourth and Aprilia Racing's Eugene Laverty fifth. Max Biaggi finished sixth.
