2014 Imola World Superbike Superpole One Results: Tyres V Horses

Only one non-Evo bike participated in Superpole one, the powerful Aprilia of Toni Elias, but he would be at a tyre disadvantage to the Evo bikes that had the Supersoft Pirelli available, an ideal tyre for the track temperature.

Leon Camier set the target lap in the first half, ahead of Toni Elias and Niccolò Canepa, before everyone spent the remainder of their tyres to try to get promoted to the second Superpole session. With the stickier rubber on his bike, Ivan Goi chopped four tenths off Camier's time only to be pipped by Canepa a few seconds later.

2014 Assen World Superbike Race Two Results: Rain, Race, Red Flags, Rumination, Rain, Race …

The umbrellas were out, as were the EBRs, having bowed out of race two to trace the mechanical problem that affected the results of the first race.

Eugene Laverty stalled his Suzuki on the grid at the beginning of the warmup lap, but was bump-started by a mechanic so he could take part in the lap and line up on the grid. Riders tested the conditions, dragging their feet round corners to test the grip and riders were gingerly feeling out the weather.
