And there are three, three triumphs in a row for Dennis Foggia in Misano, he who withstood the attacks in the last corner from Izan Guevara, Deniz Oncu and Jaume Masia.
Deniz Oncu got the holeshot, followed closely by Izan Guevara. Ayumu Sasaki crashed at turn four after an incident with Nicola Carraro early on.Guevara took the lead on the second lap, with Diogo Moreira in second. Dani Holgado relegated Moreira to third and moved to second. David Muñoz, in fifth, had the best provisional lap, he who had already conquered ten positions since the start of the race. Andrea Migno followed, unfortunately for him, for the worst reasons, as a crash at turn 1 ended his aspirations for this round.
Sergio Garcia, who was one of the fastest on the track, lost the front of his bike on lap five and crashed. May Aji also crashed soon after, in another area of the track, without gravity.
At the head of the race was Guevara, with Dennis Foggia in second. Holgado, Muñoz and Oncu closed out the top five after six laps. This group was joined by Jaume Masia, who came from behind in a clear recovery. Garcia, in turn, resumed the race but the loss of the leadership of the world was almost a certainty, since the advantage over the second in the table, Guevara, was five points.
On the tenth lap, Foggia became the new leader, after overtaking Guevara. The GasGas rider tried to fight back but he was also pressured by Holgado and Masia. This group of four had at this stage some advantage over Tatsuki Suuzki, David Muñoz, Oncu and Moreira, who made up the second group, the pursuers, also made up of four elements. Here is Foggia's maneuver on Guevara:
On his way to Moto2 to join Italtrans Racing in 2023, Foggia continued to be pressured by Guevara, Holgado and Masia, who rode very close together.
Oncu and Suzuki were moving away from the second group and approaching the top four, which would soon become the top six after fifteen laps. With nine laps to go, Masia was successfully attacking third place. Soon after, Sergio Garcia saw the black flag and received orders to withdraw from the race due to irresponsible riding. The rider allegedly ignored a series of flags and continued to overtake and engage in duels erratically as he was a overtaken rider.
At the front, the race was on fire, with Guevara and Masiá almost touching Foggia. The italian lost the position for a short time but regained it shortly afterwards. On the next lap Guevara fought back and took the lead again but Foggia responded immediately and relegated him to second:
Foggia, Guevara, Masia and Oncu were the first four. The fifth and sixth, Holgado and Suzuki, lost direct contact with the leaders but continued to follow them.
Masia was second on the penultimate lap, with Oncu in third. Foggia was still in the lead and Guevara was with the group, in fourth, when they started the last lap of the race together. Oncu came in second but would lose the position shortly after,
Foggia would win, followed by Masia and Guevara. Oncu was fourth and narrowly missed the podium. It was the third straight win for Foggia at this track. Already Garcia lost the leadership of the world for Guevara.
This is how the race went:
