2014 Aragon World Superbike Race Two Results

As the riders lined up for the warmer second race, they did so on the softer tyre, all apart from Tom Sykes who stuck with the harder rear.

Sykes was followed into the first turn by Loris Baz and Jonathan Rea as Davide Giugliano passed Sylvain Guintoli for fourth ahead of Chaz Davies and Marco Melandri. Those seven riders charged off at the front until Davies lost the front, putting a gap between the Aprilias and Giugliano's Ducati that was quickly closed.

2014 Aragon World Superbike Race One Results

With three fewer laps than last year, World Superbike at Aragon took place under a cool 16-degree sun, the earlier and colder start making tyre choice tricky.

Tom Sykes took the lead from pole position, followed by Loris Baz and a charging Davide Giugliano. Fabien Foret didn't complete the first lap, with a technical issue ending his race early on. The end of the first lap also gave us a surprising look at how little an advantage, compared to last year, the Kawasakis and Aprilias had, as Giugliano's Ducati kept pace with Baz.
