scott redding saves in extremis (at least partially) the budget of the weekend and wins race-2 of the Grand Prix of Aragon 2021, inaugural round of the new world superbike. In almost completely dry track conditions, redding was the bravest of the lot (together with jonas folger) opting for a slick couple while all the other big had chosen intermediate tires. He set in the final teammate alex lowes (3°) and bmw of tom sykes (4°) and michael van der mark (5°).
Good second square in iridata optics for jonathan rea (kawasaki), author of a very smart and solid race since he realized he could not compete for victory with the intermediates. Good 14th place for axel basseni, at the first official race weekend of the career in superbike. Fell in the first round chaz davies (later 19°), penalized by the choice of rain rubber to the front.
Rea is still a leader in the championship at 57 points, with a margin of 12 points on the British alex lowes and 17 on scott redding. 4th the Turkish toprak razgatlioglu to -27 from the summit, while the others pay already gaps greater than 30 points after only one round.
