After winning in Barcelona and Assen, Toprak Razgatlioglu has once again confirmed his potential by also winning at Misano as well. A special success for the BMW rider, on a track where Bautista and Ducati have dominated the last two editions.

With today's victory, the  #54 moves to the top of the world championship standings, putting Alvaro and Ducati with their backs against the wall. The Spanish rider couldn't do nothing but take the hit today, so he had to console themselves with the remaining steps of the podium, while Locatelli and Yamaha were out of the top three.

Things went worse for Andrea Iannone, 7th behind Gardner, while a stoic Petrucci, who had to battle with pain, came in 9th.

Superbikes aside, it was a Saturday of apprehension due to Mia Rhusten's nasty fall. The Norwegian rider, in the first race of the Women's World Championship, fell at Turn 2 and was then helicoptered to the Bufalini Hospital in Cesena.
