Aragon played host to an electriying Moto2 race that saw Marc Marquez take victory, whilst championship leader Stefan Bradl suffered technical issues that saw him slip back down the field and fight hard for an 8th place finish.
The race was frantic throughout, and it was Scott Redding that took an early lead, followed closely by Marquez and Bradl.
Bradl decided to take control on lap 5 and pushed through to take the lead.
Andrea Iannone quickly stated putting in fast laps, and by the end of the 5th lap he had managed to fight his way from 10th position to scrapping it out for 3rd place. He continued his charge and battled for first place with Marquez, with both riders changing positions multiple times.
Marquez ran wide later in the race on lap 14, but managed to regain his rhythm, and eventually his position at the front.
Meanwhile, Stefan Bradl was clearly having issues and started glancing at the rear of his bike. As his times dropped, he started slipping down the through the pack until he was as low as 9th position. He eventually managed to fight hard to regain 8th place from Kallio and Aegerter, and reduce the dent that Marquez was able to put into his lead at the top of the Championship.
With 7 laps to Marquez started to pull away from the rest of the riders and managed to stretch out a lead that proved to be too much for the other riders to match.
