Rea takes Race 2 win at Misano

Race 2 - Misano WSB

Race one winner Tom Sykes (Kawasaki Racing Team) was strong for the first half of the second encounter before dropping back to fifth at the flag. The former champion finished just ahead of Max Biaggi and Jordi Torres, the Aprilia Racing pairing swapping places throughout the 21 laps.
Michele Pirro rode a lonely race to finish eighth on the third Aruba.it Racing Ducati, with Pata Honda team mates Sylvain Guintoli and Michael van der Mark completing the top ten.

The final 5 point scoring riders were Ayrton Badovini (BMW Motorrad Italia), Niccolo Canepa (Althea Racing), Markus Reiterberger (VanZon Rehema BMW), Roman Ramos (Team Go Eleven Kawasaki) and David Salom (Team Pedercini Kawasaki).

Leandro Mercado’s run of point scoring finishes in every race came to an end, the Argentine rider retiring his Barni Racing Ducati at the end of lap 3. Alex Lowes (Voltcom Crescent Suzuki) was another of the riders to retire, on lap 9, while Matteo Baiocco (Althea Racing Ducati) fell off his Panigale R machine to end as the local rider’s racing weekend drew to a close on a low.
