All afternoon sessions cancelled at Misano due to heavy rainfall

Due to the extreme weather conditions at the Misano circuit, where torrential downpours took place at around 12pm local time, all of this afternoon's practice and qualifying sessions for the GP Cinzano de San Marino e della Riviera di Rimini have been cancelled.

The large quantity of rain that fell in a two hour burst resulted in a large amount of flooding on the track, with the run-off areas and garages also affected. Race Direction confirmed the cancellation of the day's activities after inspecting the track.

Practice sessions were due to be extended today to allow for the inexperience of the riders with the Misano circuit. An updated schedule for Saturday is to be announced shortly.

Accordingly, motogp.com's Live Coverage has been suspended until tomorrow.
