No rest for Rea

Making it to the podium by taking advantage of Alvaro Bautista’s fall during the last race of the weekend, Jonathan Rea has reduced the gap in points between him and the championship leader.

If everything was not perfect in Jerez for the quadruple world superbike champion, Jonathan Rea still managed to use his trip to Andalusia to reduce Alvaro Bautista’s lead by two points. Fourth in the first race of the weekend, twenty seconds behind the Ducati rider, fourth in the Superpole sprint, Jonathan Rea was able to increase the pace on Sunday afternoon to reach the second step of the podium behind Dutchman Michael Van der Mark . “A real podium after a difficult Saturday,” commented the Kawasaki rider. “I had no feeling with the front end of the bike but the team worked hard to find solutions and I felt much better on Sunday despite the increase in the temperature of the track. We’ll now do some tests in Misano where I hope we will continue to progress with the tuning of our bike.” Also penalized by a lack of grip on his front tire, Leon Haslam finished ninth on Saturday before taking sixth and a fifth places on Sunday. On his side, Toprak Razgatlioglu managed to make it back to the podium a month after having tasted triumph in Imola. The Kawasaki rider finished fifth in the first race, seventh in the sprint, and third on Sunday, hot on the heels of Jonathan Rea. In Supersport, Lucas Mahias and Hikari Okubo took the checkered flag in sixth and seventh positions.

The Championship

By making it to the second step of the last podium of the Spanish weekend, Jonathan Rea reduced the gap with the leader in the overall classification to 41 points. Second in the championship, the Kawasaki rider has no intention of abandoning his world title despite Alvaro Bautista’s domination on the first part of the championship. Leon Haslam stays in fifth place while Toprak Razgatlioglu has now moved up to seventh place. No change however on the side of the Supersport riders. Hikari Okubo remains in fourth place with 59 points while Lucas Mahias had not moved from his seventh place.
