Bezzecchi beats Vinales, Pedrosa to top spot in Friday practice at Misano

Aprilia’s Maverick Vinales broke the official lap record, but VR46 Ducati’s Marco Bezzecchi went even faster on his final lap despite a left hand injury. KTM’s Dani Pedrosa had another impressive performance and finished third. Marc Marquez, with the help of Pedrosa, secured sixth place on his Repsol Honda. Francesco Bagnaia, the reigning world champion on Ducati, managed to secure a top ten place and avoid Qualifying 1. However, Aleix Espargaro, Pol Espargaro, Fabio Quartararo, and Maverick Vinales will all have to fight for the remaining transfer places in Q1. Bagnaia still leads the championship, but with a reduced 50-point advantage after his accident in Barcelona. Despite his injuries, Bagnaia is back on track. Enea Bastianini is absent due to a hand and ankle fracture caused by a multi-rider pile-up. Both KTM test rider Dani Pedrosa and wild-card Stefan Bradl are using special parts in preparation for Monday’s test. Alex Rins and Iker Lecuona are unable to participate, with Rins still recovering from his leg injuries and Lecuona focusing on WorldSBK duties. Takumi Takahashi, a Japanese test rider, has replaced Rins for this race.
