BBC Sport - Michael Laverty: British Superbikes title hopes depend on consistency

Consistency key to title tilt - Laverty

British Superbikes rider Michael Laverty tells BBC Hereford and Worcester his form is going in the right direction after two podium finishes - including a win - in the latest round of the Championship at Thruxton.

The Northern Irishman, who rides for the Tyco BMW team, finished second in the first race and won the second to consolidate fourth place in the standings.

It follows a series of races where he was plagued by mechanical problems and failed to finish.
