Jerez -MotoGP

Sun 2 May 2010

A thrilling race and lots of action in Jerez.

Dani Pedrosa started in pole and managed to stay out in front for the whole race… well almost.

Rossi who was back in fourth had a good start moving up to second, and stayed with Dani for some time, however as he slipped slowely backwards Lorenzo hunted him down and took him with just six laptops to go.  He then had Pedrosa in his sites, and after lots of pressure took him on the last lap.

Rossi, who earlier in the week had damaged his shoulder in a motocross fall, came in just behind holding onto third, with the Ducati’s of Nicky Hayden and Stoner taking fourth and fifth, some eight seconds behind.

Lorenzo takes a swim to enjoy his win

Jorge celebrated his great win and his birthday, by jumping into a lake still in his leathers.  I think he was happy !

So Jorge now heads the riders championship with 45 points, followed by Rossi with 41, Pedrosa 29, and Dovizioso and Hayden both on 26.
