AN ELECTRIFYING ARAGON BRINGS CONFIRMATION AND A STAND-OUT RETURN

The Aragon GP weekend proved to be a real thriller, with Dainese Crew riders taking center stage across all three categories, albeit for different reasons.
 
Hats off to Valentino Rossi of course. Just 23 days after injuring his leg, fracturing both tibia and fibula, he returned to the track at Aragon and achieved an incredible fifth place finish. A return as risky as it was unexpected, but one that allowed the Doctor to demonstrate, once again, exactly what he’s made of: Never underestimate him, Vale is there right to the end!

While the Doctor’s exploits in the premium class were a very welcome surprise, the Moto2 and Moto3 classes brought confirmation in the shape of Franco Morbidelli and Joan Mir, who retain their respective championship leads thanks to two convincing victories.
 
In Moto2, Italian-Brazilian Morbidelli secured the win after a close head-to-head with Mattia Pasini, that he came out of only on the last lap. The victory brought his championship lead over Thomas Lüthi to 21 points.
 
It was a record race for Joan Mir who, after his eighth win of the season (a first in the history of Moto3), now has an 80-point lead over Fenati and one hand on the championship trophy: The Majorcan Dainese Crew rider is proving to be a sure thing!
