Panichi wins the BMW Boxer Cup in Mugello

Roberto Panichi won the second round of the BMW Boxer Cup in Mugello after an intense battle with four other riders during the second half of the fourteen lap race.

The Italian had led for the most part infront of a group of favourites which initially included the winner of the competition´s first round, Markus Barth. However the German slipped off the pace as a group of five riders broke clear to dispute the victory.

At the end Mertens, who was always waiting to pounce, took his rivals by surprise on the last lap and claimed the win ahead of Panichi, Fuchs, Hoffmann and Hirterreinter. However the Belgium was later disqualified, thus handing victory to Panichi.
