Bautista wins another battle against Kallio

A fight to the finish at Brno saw Alvaro Bautista deal the knockout blow to race and title rival Mika Kallio. The Spaniard dominated two thirds of the race, although Kallio caught up with him on the final lap and made one final attempt to overtake. Bautista closed the door and took victory number five of 2006, adding 5 points to his advantage over the Finn in the overall standings.

With many fans visiting from nearby Hungary, Gabor Talmacsi gave them something to cheer about with an unexpected podium finish. His perusal of the front two paid off as he headed a small pack of riders looking for a top three spot. Home rider Lukas Pesek, part of the group, slid off the track in the final stages for a heartbreaking conclusion.

Sergio Gade, Thomas Luthi and Mattia Pasini completed the top six, ahead of Nico Terol, Joan Olive, Pablo Nieto and Fabrizio Lai taking top ten finishes after the extended summer break.
