First win of the season at Misano and championship lead
June 12th, 2011

In typical Misano conditions of 24 degrees and sunshine, Broc took the lead of the race on lap 5 and lead until the finish, eventually winning the race by over 1.9 seconds, this takes Broc to the lead of the championship by 5 points after 5 of 12 rounds of the 2011 season.

"Unreal to win. It felt really good and I got a good start from fourth place on the grid. I was really concerned how the set-up would be for the race, because we made quite a big change for the start, so we did not know exactly where we were. It was a little bit of a gamble but it paid off in the end. I got out in front, got to the lead and looked back to see who was behind me. I could see he was not a championship contender, so I had to think about points as well. But I wanted a win, I really wanted to win so much, and at the end we took it. I could see some other guys were coming, but I just had to stay relaxed and control the race. First Kawasaki win for me and it feels good, and a great job from all the team"

Front row qualifying at Misano
June 11th, 2011
First qualifying on Friday was dry but it rained today and final qualifying was wet so the final grid positions are based on Friday times. I qualified 4th, we are quite happy and we will check the suspension set-up again tomorrow in warm-up. We made some changes to the bike before the opening qualifying session and I feel a lot better, more comfortable and faster. It would have been good to have some dry track time to fine-tune today but we have warm-up to work with tomorrow.
