2009 Monza FIM Superstock 1000 Cup Race Results - Parabolica Is The Decider

Results and summary of the FIM Superstock 1000 Cup race at Monza:

The opening race of the day at the World Superbike round at Monza turned out to be exemplary for how to race at the classic Italian track. After the usual chaos of the first couple of chicanes, where a mass of riders are forced to go straight on with nowhere left on the track, four riders made an early break, led by local Ducati hero Domenico Colucci, who had Suzuki's Claudio Corti, Ducati's Xavier Simeon and the Spanish Kawasaki rider Javier Fores.

Over the first 9 laps, Colucci, Corti and Simeon regularly swapped the lead, while Fores sat waiting for the inevitable mistake from the front three. But again, the close battles between the front three saw Colucci run straight on at the chicane, and on lap 10, the Italian was forced to come in for a ride through, putting him out of contention. Colucci backing off a little saw Fores lose touch with Corti and Simeon, leaving the Italian and the Belgian to dispute the win. Simeon started the lap ahead, but Corti used his Suzuki's ability to hold a tighter line to move into the lead. Simeon then used the better braking of the Ducati to get ahead going into the Ascari chicane, but through the Parabolica, Corti once again used the tighter turning of the Suzuki to his advantage, taking the lead through Monza's thrilling final turn to take victory just a 1/100ths of a second ahead of Simeon. Javier Fores' final spot on the podium was never seriously challenged from behind.
