British rider Danny Kent repeated his Austin performance as he again weighed up the conditions and competitors before disappearing down the track to take back-to-back wins – the first British rider to do so since the legend Barry Sheene in 1971.
The Leopard Racing rider, who leads the championship, was joined on the podium at the Rio Hondo by team-mate Efren Vazquez who raced with a fever, with timing and experience enough to help him power his Honda to second.
