2009 Mugello Red Bull Rookies Cup Race Result

Sturla Fagerhaug won the Red Bull Rookies race at Mugello on Saturday, after a mature recovery from a terrible start. The Norwegian got away from the line terribly, crossing the line at the end of the first lap well down the order. But Fagerhaug settled down into a rhythm and fought his way forward to catch leader Jakub Kornfeil, then break away from the chasing pack together with the Czech rider. Fagerhaug let Kornfeil pass with a couple of laps to go, but quickly decided that the Czech rider wasn't fast enough to be a threat, and so took back the lead and then cruised to a comfortable win.

The battle for 3rd was pretty intense, so tough that three riders crashed at the very last corner in a last ditch attempt at taking a couple of extra places. But in the end, it was Japan's Daijiro Hiura who crossed the line to take the final podium spot. Fagerhaug extends his lead in the championship to a comfortable 20 points.
