How to watch the FIM Superbike World Championship (WSBK) online in Australia
Follow the races of the 2019 Superbike World Championship (WSBK) on TV or live stream in Australia.
The 2019 edition of the Superbike World Championship is in full swing, with three more rounds scheduled for the end of the year. This is the 32nd edition of the tournament, which sees some of the best riders in the world battle it out on tuned versions of motorcycles available for sale to the general public.
Each round of the championship features two full-length races and, as of this year, the Superpole race. This is an additional ten-lap sprint. The results of all three races combined determine two annual World Championships, one for riders and one for manufacturers. As of September 2019, Jonathan Rea is coming first for the riders. Meanwhile, Kawasaki is leading on the manufacturers' side. But with three more rounds to go, anything can happen.
