Sam Lowes claimed a second Moto2 victory of the season in Aragon after longtime leader Marco Bezzecchi fell on the penultimate lap

Lowes dropped to second from the start after Bezzecchi made a meteoric escapade to take the lead in the race at Turn 1, although the Briton quickly tried to return to the leadership path

A small battle between rider Marc VDS and Fabio Di Gianantonio gave Bezzechhi a break, although it was short-lived as Lowes fell back after regaining second place, bringing Speed Up with him

It was Di Gianantonio who appeared to be the fit man as the race progressed into his second half, with the Italian passing Lowes first before taking the lead on his straight back just before the halfway mark. distance

Di Gianantonio’s time up front was short, however, as he lost the front end of his Speed ​​Up entering Turn 2 a few corners later, giving up in the gravel and thus leaving Bezzecchi and Lowes fight for victory

While Bezzecchi couldn’t shake Lowes off his tail for the remaining laps, the VR46 pilot looked safe in the lead and seemed to be managing his advantage until disaster struck two laps from home

In a nearly identical incident to Di Gianantonio’s, Bezzecchi folded up the front of his Kalex and slipped into an early exit, leaving Lowes with a four-second gap to battle Enea Bastianini and Jorge Martin behind

This allowed him to step back and bring his machine home for a second straight win, his result propelling him to second in the Championship standings following an early fall from Luca Marini

With a 15-point lead heading into the Aragon Grand Prix weekend, Marini struggled for outright speed through the event – as evidenced by his seventh grid start – but managed to hold your place in the early stages of the competition

It didn’t last as he dropped his VR46 bike at the exit of turn 12 after stepping on the accelerator a bit too early, sliding into retirement and leaving his seed vulnerable

The battle for second place continued until the last corner, with Martin managing to find a second wind behind after being passed by Bastianini with about a third of the game remaining

The duo have swapped positions several times over the last two tours, although Bastianini made the decisive blow for second place on the right back for the last time, taking the checkered flag four seconds behind Lowes

Martin’s third position was his first appearance in the stands since his second place at the Styrian GP in August, while Jake Dixon enjoyed a quiet race to score his best Moto2 result in fourth position

Remy Gardner managed to pass Hector Garzo to death to finish fifth for the SAG outfit, while rapidly improving rookie Marcos Ramirez also managed to squeak past driver Pons before the start of the race

Joe Roberts finished eighth on America’s second racing machine, while MV Agusta’s Tetsuta Nagashima and Simone Corsi completed the top ten

Bastianini now holds a slim two-point lead over Lowes ahead of the Teurel GP next weekend at the same Motorland Aragon venue, with Marini having now slipped to third in the overall standings with five points less on the Italtrans
