2011 Moto2

Andrea Iannone took his first Moto2 win Sunday in Brno, and consequently podium, since his triumph at the second round in Jerez.

The Italian Speed Master rider crossed the line ahead of Marc Marquez (Team Catalunya Caixa Repsol Moto2) in second, Stefan Bradl (Viessmann Kiefer Racing) in third and Alex de Angelis (JiR Moto2) fourth as the four riders scrapped for all Moto2 podium positions, bodies and bikes touching in the struggle.

Championship leader Bradl led into turn one off the start, with Marquez and Thomas Luthi (Interwetten Paddock Moto2) close behind. By lap three, it appeared the German rider had a solid lead, with De Angelis, Iannone, and Márquez forming the chasing pack, until Iannone took started his charge to the front, catching and passing Bradl on lap 13.

With three laps to go, it was a free for all between the four riders, with Iannone making a pass on Marquez on the last lap to take the top spot on the podium, moving the Italian from seventh to fourth in the Championship chase. Fourth place for de Angelis moves the San Marino rider up into third in the Championship.

Luthi crossed the line in fifth, followed by Aleix Espargaró (Pons HP 40), Esteve Rabat (Blusens-STX), Dominique Aegerter (Technomag-CIP), Simone Corsi (Ioda Racing Project) and Kenan Sofuoglu (Technomag-CIP) in tenth.

Randy Krummenacher (GP Team Switzerland Kiefer Racing), Carmelo Morales (Desguaces La Torre G22) and Bradley Smith (Tech 3 Racing) all had falls and retired from the race.
