Redding took the lead from Jonathan Rea heading into the first corner and had a close fought battle throughout with Toprak Razgatlioglu. It wasn’t until the final stages that Rea closed in to make it a three way fight, however, Redding was able to slowly extend his lead with Rea unable to pass Razgatlioglu.

Rea got alongside the Yamaha rider twice on the start-finish straight, but just as team-mate Alex Lowes found out in Aragon, Razgatlioglu’s prowess on the brakes was proving difficult to overcome, as Rea ultimately settled for third.

Garrett Gerloff finished the race where he started with fourth, although the American had to fight back from a poor start. Gerloff took fourth position away from Michael Rinaldi late on, as the Italian was unable to stay with the leading group during the early laps.

Samuele Cavalieri was the first rider to crash, before Eugene Laverty and Lowes quickly followed. Both Lowes and Laverty were running in good scoring positions (4th and 7th) at the time of their fall.

The crash for Lowes brings his 100% podium record in 2021 to a halt. Both Lowes and Laverty remounted to finish the race in 18th and 19th respectively.
