WSBK | Misano, Race-1: Rinaldi’s masterpiece, Rea 3rd – Moto

A solo, that of Michael Ruben Rinaldi. The rider from Rimini dominated Race-1 at Misano, beating Toprak Razgatlioglu and Jonathan Rea. The start of the Ducati rider was amazing, occupying the fourth box at the start but in two corners he managed to put the wheels in front of the six-time world champion of Kawasaki. Rea tried to keep up with Rinaldi, succeeding, but a mistake in curve-1 forced him into third place behind Razgatlioglu. The Northern Irishman was phenomenal not to fall in the episode: he had one knee on the ground and managed to keep the bike upright, paying “only” with an excursion to the track.

Fourth place for the other official Ducati, that of Scott Redding, never competing for top positions. Alex Lowes’ Kawasaki and Alvaro Bautista’s Honda follow. First of the independents and author of a lady race was Axel Bassani, already a protagonist in Superpole and finished in seventh place. The Venetian preceded the official BMW of Tom Sykes and a positive Andrea Locatelli, while Michael van der Mark closed the top-10. Good race also for Garrett Gerloff, 12th but started from the bottom. Retirement for Chaz Davies, who crashed at the Rio curve with ten laps to go. In drivers standings, Rea has 126 points, while Razgatlioglu and Redding are at 95 and 85 respectively.
