Jerez : 125cc race
Bradley Smith rode a superb and faultless race on Sunday to win the Spanish GP in front of local riders Sergio Gadea and Marc Marquez.
The British rider made a flying start to immediately take the lead and set a scorching pace which allowed him
to escape from the field.
Meanwhile, his main rivals Iannone et Smith lost a few places at the start and were pushing to come back when they both crashed, on lap 2 for the Italian and lap 6 for the Spaniard.
From this moment, Smith just had to keep his pace and manage his comfortable lead to take his maiden GP win. There was an intense fight for the remaining podium spots which were eventually taken by Gadea, Smith's teammate, and Red Bull KTM rider Marquez.
Jonas Folger was really unlucky to crash on the penultimate while fighting for the podium. It was a heart-breaking end to a brilliant race by the young German rider, who started from the very last spot on the grid.
