“Speechless” Espargaro dedicates maiden Aprilia MotoGP 1-2 at Catalan GP to Bagnaia
Francesco Bagnaia had a horrifying incident on the first lap of the Grand Prix while leading, resulting in him being thrown from his Ducati. KTM’s Brad Binder accidentally ran over Bagnaia’s leg, causing both riders to be taken to the medical center and then to the hospital. Fortunately, Bagnaia’s injuries were not too serious, but scans were conducted to confirm no fractures in his leg. Aprilia’s Aleix Espargaro, who won the race, dedicated his victory to Bagnaia and mentioned that the wind caused difficulties for his riding style. This is Espargaro’s second win of the season and the third in his career, coming a year after his mistake at the 2022 Catalan GP.
