2021 Misano World Supersport Superpole Result: Five Rows, One Second

World Supersport qualifying culminated in Superpole on Saturday morning, twenty minutes determining the grid for both races. 

Federico Caricasulo briefly held the benchmark lap time only for Luca Bernardi - with a 1'38.717 - Federico Fuligni and Philipp Oettl to knocked him off the top. On the second timed lap, Dominique Aegerter put in a 1'38.202 as Niki Tuuli crashed out at turn three, a short chicane, after setting a mid-pack lap. 

Aegerter increased the pace with a 1'38.187, ahead of Fuligni, Oettl and Randy Krummenacher as riders started to pit in. 

Federico Fuligni crashed as riders around him set faster laps, knocking him off the front two rows as Manuel Gonzalez and Hannes Soomer moved into the 1'37s, Gonzalez setting a 1'37.861 on the closest they're allowed to a qualifying tyre. Luca Bernardi slapped down a 1'37.739 with two minutes left. 

The fastest six riders slowed for a lap before a last ditch attempt to take their places on the grid. Dominique Aegerter hit the flag with a 1'37.726 with nobody on a lap that could challenge it. Niki Tuuli crashed again.

Dominique Aegerter took pole position alongside Luca Bernardi and Manuel Gonzalez on the front row. The second row was headed by Jules Cluzel just a thousandth off the front row, with Hannes Soomer a thousand of a second further back. Steven Odendaal rounded out the second row, a massive four and a half hundredths of a second off Soomer and Cluzel's times.
