Carlos Checa on the Althea Ducati took the win in the second race in the World Superbikes at Misano.  Max Biaggi on the works Aprilia took second while Noriyuki Haga took third place on the PATA Aprilia to round off a podium of grand old men of two wheeler racing.  Chris Vermeulen returning from a long and bothersome injury managed a tenth place on the factory Kawasaki in a race where the attrition was high and where only 14 managed to reach the finish line.
