1 of 1

Australia’s Troy Bayliss was fastest in this afternoon’s first qualifying session for the World Superbikes at Misano in Italy. 

The Ducati rider recorded a best time of 1:36.479 and knocked 0.4secs of this morning’s best from fellow Australian Troy Corser. The timesheets saw a reversal of this morning’s World Superbike free practice session with Troy Corser in second on a 1:36.524.

Ducati’s Ruben Xaus moved up the time sheets with a 1:36.879, which was more than a second quicker than his time earlier.

Britain’s James Toseland (Honda) had a disappointing World Superbikes’ session, finishing up in seventh. However, the current World Superbike championship leader was just over one 10th of a second quicker than his best time this morning.

Fellow British rider, Dean Ellison, finished 22nd on his Ducati with a best time of 1:41.290.
