Full World Supersport race results from Aragon

Randy Krummenacher won a four-rider scrap including a sprint to the chequered flag to claim victory in a frantic World Supersport race at Aragon.

After Federico Caricasulo and Thomas Gradinger attempted an early breakaway, only to fail to sustain the pace, both Krummenacher and De Rosa closed in over the final five laps to set up a four-way fight.

Krummenacher initially bolted into the lead at the start of the penultimate lap into Turn 1 dividing ahead of De Rosa.

But the Swiss rider ran wide at the final corner approaching the start of the final lap to drop back to third place behind De Rosa and Caricasulo. Krummenacher quickly dispatched his Bardahl Evan Bros Yamaha team-mate, diving up the inside of Turn 1 for second place, before hunting down the MV Agusta rider.

Using the slipstream from the leading Italian rider, Krummenacher powered up the inside into the final two corners to defend his line and cross the finish line to win by just 0.094 from De Rosa.

Caricasulo grabbed the final rostrum spot just ahead of pole-sitter Gradinger on the Kallio Racing Yamaha.

Former championship leader Jules Cluzel struggled to match the front-running pace in fifth place for GMT94 Yamaha but ended the race comfortably ahead of team-mate Corentin Perolari.
