Blog | Darryn right in the battle in Misano | 2013

Hi Everyone,

Misano was a good weekend for me.

FP1: I used this session to learn the track and get a feeling for the bike, I took an immediate liking to the track.

FP 2 : Every lap I did I liked the Misano circuit more and more and knew if I could get a good qualifying, I would be up there in the race.

Qualifying went well, I ended up 12th and it was very close. I knew if I could get into the front group I would be able to run with them.

In the race I got off to a good start and lap by lap I was moving through the field. I took an opportunity that opened up and slipstreamed about 3 riders and dived them all going into the corner which put me 4th. Unfortunately I went in a bit hot and rode into the back of another rider which sent me wide, that mistake put me back into 12th position. I kept on fighting, unfortunately the front 3 riders had broken away. I had a great battle in the second group and I managed to pick up 5th position and increase my points.

Can’t wait for Aragon
