It’s official, Alvaro Bautista is the WorldSBK rider to have fallen the most in 2021 with 12 in 13 rounds. 

The new Aruba.it Ducati rider had one more than Lucas Mahias, however, the French rider missed the final four rounds which was a total of 11 races. 

Only two more riders had double-digit crash totals, and they were GRT Yamaha teammates Garrett Gerloff and Kohta Nozane (10) each.

The rider to crash the least was Orelac Kawasaki rider Isaac Vinales who suffered just one fall throughout the entire season - these stats are across all sessions, not just races.

The second least was 2021 WorldSBK champion Toprak Razgatlioglu who was tied on three with Jonas Folger, Samuele Cavalieri and Loris Cresson.

Two of Razgatlioglu’s three falls came in races (Assen and Portimao), however, both falls weren’t the Turkish rider’s fault as Assen was due to contact with Gerloff, while Portimao was a mechanical failure which led to him crashing out from second place.

Razgatlioglu’s title challengers throughout the season Jonathan Rea and Scott Redding were both tied on six apiece, which was middle of the pack. 

In regards to what session had the most falls, it was race one which had a total of 46 - 11 more than race two. The session with the least was Sunday warm-up which included just four falls during the whole year. 

In terms of which round had the highest fall total, that went the way of Portimao with 19 WorldSBK crashes, while new rounds Most (Czech Republic) and Navarra (Spain) were second and fourth respectively (17 and 15). 

Only four rounds had single-digit crash totals which were the penultimate round in San Juan (6), Mandalika, Magny-Cours and Aragon who all had nine. 

Finally, the fall total for WorldSBK in 2021 was 159 - 25 more than 2019 with the same number of events (13) and races (37) held, while it was 50 more than last year which was reduced to 8 rounds and 24 races due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
