2009 World Superbikes Misano FP1 Result - Spies Edges Fabrizio And Rea

Ben Spies led the first session of free practice at Misano for the World Superbike class, but he took his time to get there. The Ten Kate Honda riders led the way early, all three sitting atop the timesheets at the halfway mark, but Michel Fabrizio, Nori Haga and Ben Spies gradually caught up. Spies finally took top spot at the end of the session, with a couple of very fast laps.

Gregorio Lavilla made an instant impression on the Guandalini Ducati, finishing 4th quickest. Americans Jamie Hacking and John Hopkins made a quiet return to the series, finishing 22nd and 19th respectively. The first session of qualifying takes place later this afternoon.
