also|List of Superbike World Championship racers}}
Riders from all over the world compete in the Superbike World Championship. The championship is perhaps most closely followed in [[Italy]] because of [[Ducati]] and the [[United Kingdom]] where [[superbike racing]] has been the most popular form of [[motorcycle racing]]. National-championship superbike racing is conducted in several countries, including the [[United States]], the [[U.K.]] and Japan. Riders from [[Australia]] and the [[United States]] have traditionally been successful in the world championship. No American rider had won a race since [[Colin Edwards]] won the 2002 championship until [[Ben Spies]] joined the series in 2009, but no Americans competed in the series between 2003 and 2007.
