Cardion AB Racing’s Karel Abraham was the fastest MotoGP rider after a day of mixed conditions at Misano.

Of the leading factory riders, only Ben Spies (Yamaha) and Jonathan Rea (Honda) elected to go out on the track, with frequent showers hitting the San Marino facility. The leading riders stated that there was nothing to learn from the wet running.

Due to the mixed weather, only nine bikes took to the track in first practice with Came IodaRacing Project’s Danilo Petrucci topping the time.

Eleven bikes set a lap in Free Practice 2.
