The Aprilia rider was the clear favorite as race time approached having already topped every practice session of the weekend. His competitor’s fears were realised when the lights went out and Simon set a pace that no one else could match allowing him to break away from the rest of the field.
With victory sure to go to Simon and his Bancaja Aspar Aprilia, the rest of the 125cc riders had to fight for the last two podium positions. Simon’s teammate Sergio Gadea secured second position for the third consecutive race, a consistency that allowed him to take second place in the championship shuffling fellow Bancaja Aspar Aprilia team mate Bradley Smith into third position in the championship after Smith was forced to retire due to two incidents early in the race. Belson Derbi’s Joan Olive was able to secure his first podium position of the season finishing third after battling Red Bull KTM Moto Sport’s Marc Marquez , a battle which was highlighted with a clash of fairings on the final lap resulting in a high side for Marquez. Jack and Jones Aprilia Team’s Nico Terol was able to take advantage of Marquez’s misfortune and cross the line in fourth position. Olive’s team mate in Pol Espargaro completed the all Spanish top five ahead of fellow Derbi rider Sandro Cortese and Aprilia’s Andrea Iannonne.
Julian Simon has extended his championship lead and now sits on 129 points followed closely by teammate Sergio Gadea on 104 points relegating fellow Bancaja Aspar Aprilia rider Bradley Smith to third position in the championship. Aprilia has been able to increase the manufactures championship lead to 187.5 points.
