Following a difficult weekend in Sepang, the Kawasaki Racing Team was back on top form at Misano - in front of the 59,424 spectators attending over the three days - with reigning Champion Tom Sykes taking the double, Loris Baz finishing with a brace of second places and David Salom leading the EVO field in both races. Thanks to his third double of the season, Sykes has now a 39-point advantage over Sylvain Guintoli (Aprilia Racing Team) and 41 over teammate Baz.

Despite still being second in the standings, Guintoli was on the back foot today at the Misano World Circuit, missing out the podium and being edged again by his fellow works Aprilia rider Marco Melandri, who completed the podium in the two WSBK encounters of the seventh round.

Jules Cluzel (MV Agusta Reparto Corse) claimed the race win in World Supersport, while local rider Lorenzo Savadori (Team Pedercini Kawasaki) was victorious in the FIM Superstock 1000 Cup outing.

The eni FIM Superbike World Championship will be back in action in a fortnight’s time, as the series heads to the Portimão’s Autodromo Internacional do Algarve, for the first of two back-to-back rounds before the summer break.

Tom Sykes: "I am very pleasantly surprised at these results but I knew that the adrenaline and the concentration would give me something extra. It all went to plan in race one. I knew I had some limitation all weekend and I said that to my crew chief, and what the issues were. After that you need to get on and do the job. The lap times were quite surprising at the start and my pace too. The front and rear were moving a lot but the feedback from the bike was fantastic, so I have to thank Marcel and Danilo and all the mechanics for that. In race two it was even more difficult, I had to stay focused but at the end the control of the second race was probably a bit more relaxed than in race one."

Sylvain Guintoli: "Title race wise at least I am holding onto second place but I definitely was expecting more. The top speed was there but we need to find consistency in our race pace especially in the second half. In Race 1 we made the wrong tyre choice, whereas in the second outing we made some adjustments to close the gap to the leaders. While I was with Marco and Baz I made a few mistakes which kept me from battling for the podium in the end. It's a shame there is no Race 3. Anyway, we need to keep working to be more consistent in the race".

Starting from Pole Position the Italian rider eventually crossed the line to claim the victory after 2nd place man Federico Sandi (Team Motoxracing) crashed on the 11th lap bringing out the red flag.
