Muggeridge wins title

Published: 22 September 2004

Karl Muggeridge is the 2004 World Supersport champion for Ten Kate Honda, after his rival, Jurgen Van Den Goorbergh crashed out of the race on lap 12.

Muggeridge and team-mate Broc Parkes were already several seconds clear of the rest of the field and looking like they would cruise to a comfortable one-two, when suddenly the number 4 Yamaha of Dutchmen Van Den Goorbergh was in the gravel. That means the title now goes to Muggeridge with one round of the championship still to come at Magny-Cours in France.
