Getting their chance to shine at the coastal track, WSBK fans were treated to a multitude of great battles under sunny Italian skies, as veteran riders had to work their way from the bike of the field, and contend with riders they normally don’t see in racing conditions. If you didn’t catch Race 1 at Misano, your life isn’t complete. Race reults after the jump.

    Race 1 was fantastic. Possibly the best of the season so far. Race 2 was a bit more calm. Max, keep it on a roll.

    Much more entertaining than any MotoGP race in the last few years.
