Alvaro Bautista takes great and hard fought fourth at Aragon
Alvaro Bautista proved today that Misano was nothing more than a blip in the stunning form he has shown since Laguna Seca with another stirring battle for the podium at the Grand Prix of Aragon.
The Spanish rider had the home crowd on their feet as he fought tooth and nail from the first lap in a combative second group, eventually only conceding third place to Valentino Rossi on the final lap.

“It was a great race and I had a lot of fun fighting with Crutchlow, Bradl and Rossi. It’s just a shame that I missed out on the podium again but I am happy because I fought for it until the end. Unfortunately I ended up getting into a fight with Bradl on the final lap and lost touch with Valentino but I have no complaints and we have to be happy with a result like this at a circuit where we have had so many difficulties in the past. Thanks to all the guys for the incredible job they are doing. It is nice that we were back to our best today, proving that Misano was not our fault.”
