Jonathan Rea (Kawasaki) leads Toprak Razgatlioग्लूlu (Yamaha) and lvaro Bautista (Ducati) in Most in the Czech Republic.

Rea fought her way into third past Rinaldi, who later crashed at Turn 1 on the brakes after re-passing for third.

Bautista was chasing Razgatlioglu and drafted past on the straight to hit the front, but he went straight to Turn 1 and had to rejoin the race in third place behind Rei.

A determined Rei made his move for the lead with a pass to Rajagatlioglu in Turn 1, while Bautista was now regrouped and setting his sights on closing the leading pair.

With 12 laps to go, Bautista moved to second behind Rea and then advanced two laps later.

It looked like the Ducati rider would have the speed to go away, but Razgatlioglu was accusing his Yamaha.

The Turkish rider picked up Ri and then overtook Bautista with seven laps remaining.

Razagatlioglu then slowly opened a gap on Bautista and Rei, who were unable to respond.

The top three remained unchanged on the last six laps as Razgatlioglu took the win over Bautista by 0.756 seconds, while Ri was two seconds ahead of third. It was Razgatlioglu’s 24th win at World Superbikes and Yamaha’s 101st victory in the series.

Scott Redding finished fourth for BMW Motorrad ahead of Axel Bassani (Motocorsa Ducati), while the top six was completed by Andrea Locatelli (Pata Yamaha).

Eugene Laverti did not start the race due to a problem with his forearm, while Rea’s teammate Alex Lowes was ruled out of the race due to illness.

The championship now enters a long summer break, resuming from 9–11 September with a seventh round at Magny-Cours in France.

Rei and Lowes will now travel to Japan to participate in Suzuka’s 8-Hour Race for Kawasaki next weekend.
