Foggia wins in a row after Fenati’s crash

In his fourth win of the season, Foggia was involved in a championship battle, moving up to second place after point leader Acosta stayed in seventh place at Misano’s stupid KTM.

Paulman Fenati grabbed a hole shot and resisted the attack from Avintia’s Niccolo Antonelli in the first corner sequence, maintaining the lead on the opening lap.

Fenati immediately placed a tenth between himself and Antonelli, who was chasing him. Antonelli quickly retaliated for Foggia’s attempt to take second place on his second tour.

By lap 5, Fenati’s lead was more than six-tenths, and Antonelli seemed to be the only rider to stop Max Racing Husk Varna’s desire to win.

However, on lap 10, Antonelli made a mistake in Rio’s right-handedness on Turn 4 and retreated to 7th place, giving Fenati a 1.5-second advantage.

When the back group won the last two podiums, Fenati was left to take the lead for nearly three seconds. This is because the win seemed more certain with each lap passed.

However, a disaster occurred when Fenati crashed in the penultimate corner while comfortably leading on lap 14 on lap 23.

As a result, Foggia took over the lead of the race, leopard riders opened more than five-tenths of the gap, and sniper Honda Andrea Migno was slightly ahead of second place on the closing lap.

However, Migno couldn’t do anything to close Foggia, whose lead had swollen more than seven-tenths from the end to the second lap, but Migno was attacked by Antonelli in the first corner.

Antonelli made a move stick and tried to close the current 8/10 lead held by Foggia.

By the end of the penultimate tour, Antonelli was able to wipe out two-tenths of Foggia’s lead.

However, the leopard rider reacted strongly in the first sector, returning the lead to eight-tenths and not threatening his fourth victory in 2021.

Antonelli kept second ahead of Migno, and Sergio Garcia finished fourth on the Aspar Gas Machine on the day he was able to punish his main title rival, Acosta.

Jaume Masia completed the top five at Ajo KTM ahead of Petronas Sprinta’s Darryn Binder, but Acosta came in seventh from a tough race and continued to lead the championship, 42 points ahead of Foggia and Garcia.

The second Avintia KTM Carlos Tatay, BOEOwlride Stefano Nepa and Tech3 KTM Ayumu Sasaki closed the top ten.

Honda Team Asia rider Yuki Kunii was disqualified from the Grand Prix on Saturday night for irresponsible riding in FP3 after FIM Steward supported the team’s appeal and caused a clash.
