2009 World Superbikes Misano Race 2 Result - Three Man Battle To Last Corner

Results and synopsis of World Superbikes Race 2 at Misano:

Johnny Rea took his maiden victory in World Superbikes today, holding off a pair of charging Ducatis to take victory. Rea, Michel Fabrizio and Noriyuki Haga all got away early, and all three riders swapped places continuously. Fabrizio passed for the lead with 8 laps to go, but Rea took the lead back in the first corner of the last lap, then held Fabrizio and Haga off for the win.

Ben Spies had a strong start, but a problem with his bike saw him drop down to 17th place by the end of lap 2. However, the problem seemed to go away of its own accord, and Spies fought his way back through the field to get up to 9th. But the problem cost Spies dearly, handing back to Fabrizio and Haga the points he took during race 1.
