2013 Laguna Seca World Superbike QP2 Results: Melandri Fastest Ahead Of Impressive Canepa

Niccolo Canepa looked like he would hold onto provisional pole right up to the flag, but Marco Melandri stole it after the clock ran out. Tom Sykes and Sylvain Guintoli ended the session with under two tenths of a second separating them. Roger Lee Hayden was unable to record a time due to a technical issue, while Tomi Elias managed a few laps before his bike also retired.

Maybe the Duc is not as bad as we think or Canepa is the next best thing.
