MXGP OF GERMANY & SBK MISANO: THE LONGEST DAY OF THE YEAR

June 21, 2015

June 21st is necessarily indicated as the summer solstice. The longest day in the year.

No better coincidence could have connected Antonio Cairoli’s racing weekend and his endless struggle to take some advantage and gain some point despite the tremendous pain on his arm after the last MXGP of Italy in Maggiora.

His superpower again made him reach his goal and gain a good 9th position when in moto2 he arrived as many as in the 6th position.

Podium went for Romain Febvre, first overall, Gautier Paulin second and Kevin Strijbos third.

After his empowered performance in Maggiora Ken De Dycker had a very bad weekend arriving on the last position in both races. After crashing on moto1 he started all the way down again, but because of the pain he just made it for a few laps retiring then straight.

Flying back to Italy, in Misano, the FIM Superbike World Championship was hosting an epic race not only for the legendary location welcoming this 8th Round, but also for the return, after 3 years, of the 6 times world champion Max Biaggi.

It will go down in history as a very challenging race with a stable 9th position in race1 and race2 for Sylvain Guintoli, while Niccolo’ Canepa retired on race1 arriving 12th on race2.

Jonathan Rea won the 11th race of season in race two after a long fight with Davide Guigliano; second while Leon Haslam arrived third.
