The challenge at the top of the Moto2. But it is there rain the real star of the first day of testing at Misano. In the afternoon, a few flashes of sunshine did not allow the track to dry out, highlighting the familiarity of Augusto Fernandez in the wet on which he has shown to move well too Remy Gardner, unlike its rival in the standings, Raul Fernandez who struggled to stay in the top ten. Eighth place at the end of the first day of free practice matters little, it certainly does not worry a rider accustomed to fighting for the top positions, but for his antagonist it is obviously a breath of fresh air (remembering how the previous race ended with a zero heavy that has shortened a lot the distance with Fernandez, now 9 points from him).
The Italians: 5th Vietti, 15th Bezzecchi
The Italians protagonists in the league do not shine for now: Bezzecchi stopped in fifteenth place, By Giannantonio he even finished in twenty-fifth position. They are saved in reverse Celestino Vietti, fifth and best of the Italians, e Stefano Manzi, eleventh, despite the contact with Joe Roberts who got the worst of it. The others, despite the home factor, are scattered further back: sixteenth courses, twentieth Arbolino and then, all lined up between the twenty-fourth and the twenty-eighth place: Baldassari, By Giannantonio, Casadei, Marcon and Bulega. The forecasts for Saturday do not, at the moment, leave us hoping for an improvement.
