XAVIER SIMEON LOSES OUT BECAUSE OF RED FLAG!

Team Alstare Suzuki Corona Extra rider Xavier Simeon saw his hopes of victory dashed by a red flag at Misano today in the Superstock 600 European Championship race. Xavier had led the early part of the race and then settled in behind Canepa (Ducati) and Giugliano (Kawasaki) waiting to make his move in the closing stages. He passed Canepa and was lining up leader Giugliano, when the race was red flagged because of a crash. Giugliano took the win, with Simeon second and Canepa third. Simeon now leads the championship by 19 points, with Giugliano second.

XAVIER SIMEON - 2nd
That was a bit frustrating and I am disappointed because I knew I could win the race. I was ready to make my move on Giugliano in the last couple of laps, but the race was stopped with two laps to go and so I lost my opportunity. Before that, it had been a very exciting race and I enjoyed myself a lot. But, at least I am still leading the championship and my points lead is not so bad.

Results
1 Giugliano, 2 SIMEON (Alstare Suzuki Corona Extra), 3 Canepa, 4 Lamarra, 5 Antonelli, 6 Beretta

Points:
1 SIMEON 90, 2 Giugliano 71, 3 Canepa 61, 4 Colucci 37, 5 Costantini 29, 6 Lamarra 26,
