BRADLEY Smith remains in contention for the MotoE World Cup title despite a disappointing weekend in Misano.

The Oxfordshire rider fell in race one but was able to rejoin and finish 12th.

He came home eighth in the second round, but was helped by the fact previous leader Mike di Meglio had a disastrous weekend.

It means with two races remaining Smith is in fourth place overall, seven points behind Matteo Ferrari, who won both races in San Marino.

The season concludes with two races in Valencia, Spain on November 16-17.
