An amazing Fenati flies on the flooded asphalt of Misano giving more than 20 seconds to the champioship leader Mir. Grit and determination reminding the Romano seen on his first Moto3 victory in Jerez 2012, under similar weather condition.

Race affected by pouring rain and minimum grip for the whole GP, stuff for true wet expert riders. After Pasini and the championship leader Morbidelli fell during the first laps, the two Swiss Aegerter and Luthi started fighting and controlling each other for all the race.

Luthi, second at the checkered flag, got close to Morbidelli and reopened the championship, while Aegerter showed a great concreteness and ability winning his first race in Moto2.

Our rookie Brad Binder (photo), with the Red Bull KTM Ajo, made a little miracle gaining the fastest lap and a great fifth place, his best seasonal placement after a start from the 17th position on the grid. The guy is special, and he is proving it race after race. We are proud to have created his helmet for his first Moto2 season and last thursday we unveiled him the sample of his new helmet for next season.

Regrettably, for us the rain mixed things up but, in any case, it has been a race for true riders, with the track that changed every lap going through a “full wet” at the beginning to an almost dry during the last laps.

Misano totally supported Dovizioso but the guy from Forlì had to settle for a third place, while Marquez and Petrucci were on battle for the final victory up to the last lap.

Marquez, with a textbook overtake on Petrucci at the beginning of the last lap, showed that he is the only one who can overtake also the bike problems, retrieving the 9 points of gap from Dovizioso, both now at first championship place with same points.

Many slides and falls down have marked the whole GP, with also an heroic Zarco who, remained without fuel at the last corner, pushed his Yamaha by feet gaining the 15th place.

Suzuki and all the team have to thank the young rookie Alex Rins for the amazing 8th place while starting from the 20th position, making a comeback and demonstrating a great maturity. Unfortunately one more disappointment for Iannone, withdrawn at mid-race.

Next stop in Aragon where the battle will restart before the three asiatic races, and then the 2017 championship closes in Valencia.
