SBK: Most: Toprak’s tire deflated in Race 2


First it blistered, then it deflated. We can see the condition of Toprak's rear tire in the photo after it was punctured. It was a hard blow for Yamaha’s Turkish rider, who was leading in Race 2, six laps from the end, ahead of the Ducati of his direct rival in the race for the title: Bautista. This incident made him fall back 74 points behind the Spanish rider in the Championship.
