SUPERBIKE World Championship in Misano (Italy) 

Victim of a crash on Saturday during the final free practice session, the weekend did not start on the right foot for Lorenzo Baldassarri in World Superbike. However, carried by his public, “Balda” never gave up and gradually regained his confidence on his Yamaha YZF-R1. In race 1, his laps in 1:35 allowed him to score the precious point of the 15th place and to finish less than five seconds behind Andrea Locatelli, official Yamaha rider. On Sunday after a 12th place in the Superpole race, Lorenzo Baldassarri was on track to repeat his best performance of the year in race 2. 13th behind World Supersport Champion, Dominique Aegerter, Lorenzo fought in the group for the 8th position. A crash 7 laps from the finish came to stop his race. The rider escaped without any damage and with the conviction of having found the user manual for his Yamaha R1.
On the Supersport side, Johan Gimbert made no mistakes and made progress step by step. The leader of the French Supersport Championship demonstrated, during this weekend, that he knew how to manage the pressure of this challenge on the “Valentin Debise” Yamaha YZF-R6 with a 17th place as the best result over the weekend. Johan Gimbert will now return to the French Championship to face the French riders who are aiming, like him of course, for the wild card at Magny-Cours with the French team. This will be awarded to the rider who will be the leader after the Pau Arnos race which will take place on July 16th.
