Thruxton BSB: Lowes ?happy? with four podiums

“We had four podiums in the first four races, and it is nice to get these races out of the way, and I am happy with the four podiums and I am looking forward to the rest of the year. Four podiums is what I wanted and battling with James, Shakey and Josh is lots of fun and I really enjoy it,” said the cheeky twin.

Lowes had some changes made to his bike, and the improvements obviously made an impact, as he narrowly clinched second spot on the podium, after some epic battles with Rapid Solicitors Kawasaki’s Shane Byrne and Milwaukee Yamaha rider James Ellison.

“My bike felt a lot better for race two, and we made some changes in between the races. But there were a lot of safety cars in the race today and I want to wish all the best to those who had crashes today, as it is a fast place here and I want them to be alright.

“It would nice to win a race again, but if I keep focusing hard and working hard [first place] will come up sooner or later.”

    Bell steers England to victory, hosts take 2-1 Ashes lead

    Ian Bell guided England to an eight-wicket victory over Australia in the third test at Edgbaston on Friday to put the hosts 2-1 up in the series with two matches to play. Bell (65 not out) and Joe Root, with an unbeaten 38, anchored the chase after England were set to 121 to win on the third day at Edgbaston where a dominant performance banished memories of a heavy defeat at Lord's. England lost Alastair Cook (7) and Adam Lyth (12) to set a few nerves on edge but Bell, dropped on 20 by Australia captain Michael Clarke, made his second 50 of the match to spark raucous celebrations after Root hit the winning runs.

    No snow no problem as China's financial might lands 2022 Games

    The snow will be fake, but the very real financial muscle China boasts proved decisive on Friday when Beijing won the right to host the 2022 Winter Olympics. Games officials meeting in Kuala Lumpur voted for the Chinese capital over the lure of a winter wonderland offering from Kazakhstan's Almaty, in a clear sign that the International Olympic Committee is craving solidity and security after a series of problems and headaches. While Rio scrambles to make up lost time in its building for the 2016 Olympics, and Tokyo is embroiled in a stadium drama the allure of a megacity with a cast-iron financial guarantee proved irresistible.
