Martino Poccianti easily won the Oakley Super Pole
His lap of 1:31.829 was more than 2 seconds ahead of the next fastest rider.

It still fell short of his 1:29.575 track record set last year in the old qualifying format

Davide Vigano started Milano in the red Castelli leader’s skinsuit, doing everything he needed throughout the day to defend his advantage.

Consistency is key when you’re racing for the series overall, and in 2017 no rider was more consistent than Eléonore Saraiva. Never finishing outside the top five, Saraiva added to her impressive points tally in Milano with a fifth in the final, plus the fastest lap in our Super Pole race. 📸 by @danchabanov and @tornanti_cc
