Misano. The next round of the FIM Superbike World Championship 2022 takes BMW Motorrad Motorsport to the Italian Adriatic coast: the fourth event of the season will take place in Misano this weekend (10th to 12th June). Ilya Mikhalchik (UKR) will be competing there in the BMW Motorrad WorldSBK Team, replacing Michael van der Mark (NED). Van der Mark is still recovering from a fracture of the right femoral neck, resulting from a fall at the previous event in Estoril (POR) in May.
Mikhalchik had already stepped in for van der Mark at the season-opener in MotorLand Aragón (ESP), when he was unable to compete due to an ankle injury. In Misano, the Ukrainian rider will now be joining up again with Scott Redding (GBR). Last weekend, Mikhalchik celebrated a historic victory with the BMW Motorrad World Endurance Team at the 24H SPA EWC Motos (BEL) in the FIM Endurance World Championship (FIM EWC).
Our team had already visited Misano in March for two days of pre-season testing with Scott Redding.
