Four-way battle for the podium as De Rosa edges out Tamburini and Calia for second.

Lorenzo Savadori (Nuova M2 Racing Aprilia) took a hard-fought win in the sixth race of the 2015 FIM Superstock 1000 Cup at the Misano World Circuit “Marco Simoncelli”, his fourth victory of the season. The tall Italian rider took advantage of the battle for second place storming behind him, which saw Raffaele De Rosa (Althea Racing Ducati) successfully defend his position despite the numerous attempts by Roberto Tamburini (Team MotoxRacing BMW) to edge out his fellow Italian rival.

Kevin Calia (Nuova M2 Racing Aprilia) managed to stick with the leading trio but was unable to get into the mix for a podium finish, likewise Kev Coghlan (MRS Yamaha) who dropped back in the latter stages of the encounter after running in second for a handful of laps. The experienced Scottish rider claimed fifth place ahead of team mate Jeremy Guarnoni as Christoffer Bergman (MG Competition Yamaha), Ondrej Jezek (Triple-M by Barni Ducati), Bryan Staring (Team Pedercini Kawasaki) and Fabio Massei (EAB Racing Ducati) rounded out the top 10.

With only two races to go, Savadori holds a 34-point lead over Tamburini. The FIM Superstock 1000 Cup action will resume in Jerez on September 20th.
