Bradl Beats Simon For Estoril Win

bradl_wins_in_estorilStefan Bradl took his second win of the 2011 racing season today by a narrow margin ahead of Julian Simon. Yuki Takahashi completed the podium with an emotional race following the tragic loss of his brother.

Bradl started the race from the pole position, his third time this season, but was never able to pull ahead for a comfortable lead. Simon was always close behind, and in the last few laps the two but on an entertaining battle for the race win. Bradl was able to hold off Simon, however, and won his second race of the season by .1 seconds.

There was a big gap behind the top two riders, allowing Yuki Takahashi to coast to third place. It was a powerful and emotional return to the podium for Takahashi, who lost his brother in a car accident last week.

Dominique Aegerter achieved his best result in the Moto2 so far with a fourth place finish, beating out Simon Corsi by a few tenths of a second.

Andrea Iannone, who is currently second in the standings, was on his way to victory before he crashed with a few laps to go. Iannone was able to pickup his bike and restart, but was only able to muster a 13th place finish, 42 seconds behind the leader.
