Fantastic Weekend #AragonGP

Moto3: Bastianini steps up to the podium.
This weekend the Motogp main competitions were held in the Spanish Circuit of Aragon, the last European round before four oversea races in a row.
The Leopard Racing rider Enea Bastianini, due to the penalization after the QP was forced to start in the middle of the group and so had to recover many positions lap by lap. In just six laps he was able to catch up with the leading group and then he tried to reduce the gap with the leader of the race Martin, who got away in the first lap. Unfortunately the last four seconds were impossible to recover and Enea had a great battle for a position on the podium and with an impressive last lap he finished 3rd.
Great race also for the Angel Nieto Team rider Albert Arenas who started 15th overtook many riders in the first lap. After reaching the first group Albert fought for the podium until the last two laps where a little contact with another rider disturbed his pace and forced him to finish 7th, adding another result inside the top ten. His teammate Andrea Migno started 21st, was protagonist of a huge comeback and after gaining a great many positions he finished 12th.
Now the Moto3 Championship standing sees Aron Canet 5th, -73 points and Enea Bastianini 4th, -58 points from the leader Jorge Martin.
Moto2: Two Extreme Components riders on the podium.
The RedBull KTM Ajo rider Brad Binder starting from the pole position was able to stay with the leading group for the whole race. After leading the race for a few laps in the fist part of the race, Binder was overtaken. He stayed behind the leader to study him and manage the tyres, looking forward to the end. With five laps to go Brad increased his pace, overtook the leader and opened a gap between himself and his rivals. At the end managed to win the competition and get his second victory of the season. His teammate Miguel Oliveira, due to a difficult QP started 18th and was forced to a great comeback. Oliveira finished the race 7th, gaining very important points for the championship.
Amazing race also for the Pons Racing rider Lorenzo Baldassarri who started 8th but reached the leading group in a few laps. After a fantastic battle against his rivals he finished 3rd, returning on the podium after six races.
Top ten also for the Italtrans Racing rider Mattia Pasini who started 6th and finished 8th.
Now the Moto2 Championship standing sees Lorenzo Baldassarri 4th, -102 points, Brad Binder 3rd, -90 points and Miguel Oliveira 2nd -19 points from the leader Francesco Bagnaia.
MotoGP: Abraham back to the points.
The Czech rider of the Angel Nieto Team Karel Abraham started 15th but for a contact in the first turn with Valentino Rossi was forced to go wide and lost many positions. After ending up in 20th position, Abraham pushed as much as he could and with a consistent pace he overtook three riders finishing the race 17th, adding points to his place in the Motogp standings.
His Teammate Alvaro Baustita after passing in Q2 on Saturday, started the race 8th. Unfortunately in the second lap Bautista lost the front at turn 14 and was forced to a premature end. This crash is a shame because Bautista stayed inside the top ten for the whole weekend and a very good result was just behind the corner.
The next round will take place for the first time in the Thailand Circuit of Buriram on the 7th October, a new challenge for all the riders.
