Repsol Honda's Dani Pedrosa took an early lead over Yamaha's Jorge Lorenzo. With six races remaining, Pedrosa has narrowed the gap between himself and Lorenzo to 63-points in the championship.

Repsol Honda’s Dani Pedrosa claimed his second consecutive race win with a well deserved victory over Fiat Yamaha’s Jorge Lorenzo at Misano. This was Pedrosa’s fourth win of the season and the first time in his career that he has managed to win back-to-back races.

Lorenzo continues to lead the championship over Pedrosa, who has narrowed the gap to 63-points thanks to his effort in the last two races. Still, Lorenzo is in control of his own destiny with six races to go.

"I don't have many words for the race on such a sad day," said Lorenzo. "I made a good start but I couldn't keep close to Pedrosa. Second is good, we aren't fast enough but for the championship it's another very important result and that is our target. The podium is our goal in all races, although we hope we can still improve our M1 a bit more. As for Shoya, it's a huge pity because he was a good guy and a strong rider. I am so sad and I just want to say how sorry I am for his family and his friends. When this happens, nothing else matters."


Fiat Yamaha’s Valentino Rossi rounded out the podium as the top finishing Italian rider.

"This was a great result for us, more than just for the podium but for the way that the result arrived," explained Rossi. "I was very fast at the end of the race and this shows how much we're improving because I was able to keep pushing right to the end. I think we did a good job this weekend."

Things didn’t go well for Marlboro Ducati’s Nicky Hayden. The Kentucky Kid tangled with Rizla Suzuki’s Loris Capirossi, who was making his 200th start in the premier class. Both riders would DNF.
“I am very angry at what happened today because I was feeling very confident and the bike was good, so I thought we could have a competitive race," Capirossi said. "Now I have to have an operation and I hope I can be back for Aragon, but this is nothing compared to what happened in the other race. I want to send my condolences to Tomizawa’s family, this is a great tragedy and something that you never like to hear about.”

Misano Moto2 Results


Gresini Racing’s Toni Elias claimed a 2-second victory over Mapfre Aspar’s Julian Simon in the Moto2 final at Misano. The victory puts Elias 83-points ahead of Simon in the championship chase with six races remaining. Interwetten Moriwaki’s Thomas Luthi rounded out the podium ahead of JIR Moto2 rider Simone Corsi.

On a somber note, for the second MotoGP race weekend in a row there was a fatality at the track. On Sunday, 19 year old Japanese rider Shoya Tomizawa crashed while battling for the podium with 15-laps remaining and was run over by one of the two other racers that were collected in the incident. It was reported on MotoGP.com that he has since passed away as a result of the severe trauma he sustained. Our sympathy goes out to the Tomizawa family.
