CHIARELLO JUST MISSES THE PODIUM.

Team Alstare Suzuki Corona Extra rider Riccardo Chiarello finished just off the podium in the second round of the European Superstock 1000 Championship at Monza today. He made a superb start and led into the first chicane, but was then swallowed up by eventual winner Kenan Sofuoglu (Yamaha) before the first lap was out. Although Sofuoglu was pressurised by Massimo Roccoli (Yamaha) in the closing stages of the 11-lapper, he held on to take his second win of the season. Third went to Craig Coxhell (Suzuki), with Chiarello not far behind.

RICCARDO CHIARELLO - 4th
I am disappointed not to have been on the podium today, because I feel that my bike had the measure of the Yamahas. But, today I found it was difficult changing direction and so I just could not get to the front at all. The tyres worked OK, except in the Parabolica, but they were not the problem. If we can get the bike to work OK, then I am confident that I can be on the podium and maybe beat those Yamahas.

Results
1 Sofuoglu (Tur-Yamaha), 2 Roccoli (I-Yamaha), 3 Coxhell(Aus-Suzuki), 4 RICCARDO CHIARELLO (I-Alstare Suzuki Corona Extra), 5 Van Keymeulen (NL-Yamaha), 6 Martinez (E-Yamaha)

Points
1 Sofuoglu 50, 2 Roccoli 36, 3 Van Keymeulen 31, 4 Coxhell 27, 5 De Marco 14, 6 RICCARDO CHIARELLO 13,
