First Laguna Seca double for Rea

Wins dedicated to Kneen and Lyon

Jonathan Rea extended his lead at the top of the World Superbike standings with a double victory in California at the weekend.

It's the first time the Northern Irishman, who lives in Castletown, has won both races at Laguna Seca.

He's also become the first rider to win four World Superbike races at the circuit.

Speaking afterwards, he said, "My thoughts were with Dan Kneen and Adam Lyon (who were killed in crashes at the TT) and these race wins are in their memory."

Rea now has a 75-point lead over Chaz Davies in the standings.
