Honda WorldSBK Riders Battle Through Misfortune in Race Two at Misano

The Honda WorldSBK Team has completed the Riviera di Rimini round of the World Superbike Championship by taking part in today’s race two at the Misano World Circuit ‘Marco Simoncelli’ in Italy. Nicky Hayden and Michael van der Mark finished the second encounter of the weekend in sixth and tenth places, respectively.

Hayden did not enjoy the best of starts from sixth place on the grid and was running in ninth in the early stages. As the laps went by, the experienced American gradually found a better feeling with his Honda CBR1000RR Fireblade SP to join the five-way battle for fifth. In the latter part of the race, he was able to make his way up to sixth and ultimately missed a fifth-place finish by only 0.124secs at the line.

Michael van der Mark got a great launch from row four and was sixth on the opening lap of the encounter. Unfortunately for the young Dutchman, there was nothing he could do to avoid the sliding Ducati of Chaz Davies on lap three, when the Welshman fell in front of him at turn 14. Van der Mark was able to re-join the race in twenty-second place and did his utmost up to recover as many positions as possible before the checkered flag, eventually crossing the line in tenth. Despite the setback, the 2014 World Supersport Champion displayed a very competitive pace throughout race, which was on par with the leaders.

Round nine of the 2016 FIM Superbike World Championship will take place at Laguna Seca in the United States of America in three weeks’ time.
