The Monza round of World Superbikes has been canceled. The rumors that Monza would be taken off the calendar have been circulating since early February, but the cancellation was only officially confirmed today. Unofficially, the circuit has known longer: last week, the circuit replied to an email from a MotoMatters.com reader that the race would not be going ahead, and he would not be able to purchase tickets for the event on 22nd-24th July.
Jules Cluzel ends Friday on top, ahead of Axel Bassani and Lorenzo Zanetti. Roberto Rolfo was the third MV Agusta in the top four and the championship contenders Kenan Sofuoglu, Randy Krummenacher and PJ Jacobsen languished outside the top six.
Red flags were brought out with just over nine minutes remaining and Kyle Ryde and Glenn Scott were taken to the medical centre after crashing at turn two. After the restart, Jules Cluzel set the fastest time three times before the session ended, with Randy Krummenacher, Kenan Sofuoglu and PJ Jacobsen also putting in their fastest times before the flag came out. Glenn Scott was taken to Alcaniz Hospital for a left tibia open fracture.
