Roberts Jr provides ideal Father's Day gift

Kenny Roberts Jr earned one of his best results of recent seasons at the Circuit de Catalunya, with an excellent third position on a very special day for the Californian.

Roberts Jr has been absent from the podium since the rainy 2005 British Grand Prix, and hasn't taken a top three finish in the dry since the 2002 Brazilian Grand Prix.

The result was undoubtedly a fantastic Father's Day gift for the senior member of the Roberts family, the highest finish in the history of Team Roberts. Since the team's creation in 1996, Kenny Roberts Sr's outfit has never had a rider on the podium in a World Championship Grand Prix. 2002 had been their previous high point, with Nobuatsu Aoki and Jeremy McWilliams taking a pole position in Australia and various top ten finishes.
