Spoiler Alert: 2014 Moto2 results from the Le Mans Bugatti circuit listed below

The Monster Energy Grand Prix of France at Le Mans brought a second-straight Moto2 win for Marc VDS Racing Team’s Mika Kallio.

This allowed the Finnish rider to gain some ground in the 2014 Moto2 Championship; he is now 7 points shy of the leader, teammate Esteve Rabat.

Joining Kallio on the Le Mans Moto2 podium was NGM Forward Racing’s Simone Corsi and Rabat.

Kallio rode calmly from fourth on the grid, hunting down provisional race leader Corsi for the victory and taking over at the front with eight laps to go. Corsi eventually finished a second behind the winner, holding off a late challenge from championship leader Rabat – who had to settle for third.

Young Spanish rookies Maverick Viñales (Pons HP 40) and Luis Salom (Pons HP 40) were both in the podium chase as they gathered more Moto2 experience, eventually finishing fourth and fifth respectively. Another 2014 intermediate class debutant Jonas Folger (AGR Team) was sixth, having started on pole.

Dominique Aegerter (Technomag carXpert), Thomas Luthi (Interwetten Paddock Moto2), Sam Lowes (Speed Up) and Franco Morbidelli (Italtrans Racing Team) were top ten finishers.

Caterham Moto Racing’s Josh Herrin

Axel Pons (AGR Team), Alex De Angelis (Tasca Racing Moto2), Tetsuta Nagashima (Teluru Team JiR Webike), Julian Simon (Italtrans Racing Team) and Xavier Simeon (Federal Oil Gresini Moto2) were all crashers, whilst home riders Louis Rossi (SAG Team) and Johann Zarco (AirAsia Caterham Moto Racing) also crashed in front of the home fans.

Ricard Cardus (Tech 3) and Mattia Pasini (NGM Forward Racing) crashed out together early on, with Pasini unhappy with Cardus’ role in the accident.

As for the sole American in 2014 Moto2, Caterham Moto Racing’s Josh Herrin finished 22nd.

Herrin missed the previous two rounds (Jerez, Argentina) due to breaking his collarbone in while training aboard a Supermoto bike.

The Moto2 series now breaks for a week before heading to Italy for the Italian Grand Prix.
