MotoGP Catalan GP: Espargaro leads historic Aprilia 1-2 after Bagnaia crash
During the opening lap of the grand prix, Francesco Bagnaia was involved in a horrific incident where he was thrown from his Ducati and had his leg run over by KTM’s Brad Binder. The incident was triggered by Bagnaia’s teammate Enea Bastianini, causing a multi-rider crash. Bagnaia and Bastianini were both taken to the hospital, and the Ducati team was absent from the restarted race. The race eventually resumed, with Maverick Vinales taking the lead on his Aprilia and teammate Aleix Espargaro finishing second. Espargaro’s victory marked Aprilla’s first ever double podium in MotoGP.
