Moto2: BREAKING NEWS- Dalla Porta disqualified for being underweight by one kilo

An 11th place at Le Mans would have been the best result for Lorenzo Dalla Porta in the Moto2, but the conditional is a must here. The Italtrans team rider was, in fact, disqualified after the race. In the Moto2, the minimum weight for the bike plus rider is set at 217 kg, while Dalla Porta and his Kalex reached 216 kg.

A kilo less certainly doesn’t offer any advantages, but the FIM Stewards were inflexible and decided to disqualify him.
