2022 Assen World Superbike Superpole Race Result: Will There Be Cake?

The Superpole race at Assen had everyone using the same SC-X rear tyre on a cold 20ºC track temperature. The start was delayed by Gabriele Ruiu sticking his hand up, but in spite of him waving people off when his bike restarted, riders at the front waved for a stop due to the delay. Jonathan Rea kept off his bike and hugged his front tyre for warmth. The restarted race would be nine laps in stead of the usual ten and should be decided in under fifteen minutes. Ruiu was moved to the back of the grid for the knife-fight-in-a-phone-booth restart.
