Ducati's Chaz Davies completed the fifth Superbike World Championship double of his career with victory in race two at Magny-Cours.
The 29-year-old Welshman finished ahead of Honda's Michael van der Mark and Kawasaki's Tom Sykes on Saturday and maintained his form on Sunday to come home 2.09 seconds clear of Jonathan Rea in second, with Tom Sykes third.
Rea now leads Kawasaki team-mate Sykes by 48 points and can claim the title in the penultimate round 12 at Jerez.
Rea and Sykes battled for the lead with five laps remaining but Sykes attempted an almost impossible overtaking manoeuvre. Davies took advantage to move ahead of the pair and did not look back to take the chequered flag.
Leon Camier got the best of his own battle with Van der Mark to take fourth, with the Dutchman fifth and Lorenzo Savadori sixth.
Jordi Torres edged out Sylvain Guintoli to claim seventh and Nicky Hayden (ninth) and Xavi Fores (10th) rounded out the top 10.
