Le Mans MotoGP: Lorenzo takes victory and championship lead

2010 MotoGP champion Jorge Lorenzo has won the wet race at Le Mans by 9.9 seconds and taken the lead in the championship by eight points. Lorenzo got an excellent start to lead from flag to flag, consistently lapping faster than any of the riders behind him. Repsol Honda rider Casey Stoner took second place off the line, though he was unable to...

Havn't seen the stylish crash and remount yet thanks.... but the bigger picture is this lot doesn't need that much winding up and if you do it next round I think we AD fans will have to consider "remounting" your head............. From your shoulders to Dovi's entrance hall. LOL

Don't be too mean to Elbowz about "Elbowz" either. He very gracioulsly manned up and got back on the Spies wagon after his cowardly defection to the Stoner ranks pre season. Gutted for him. Mind you he has taken to abusing and threatening the SBK wonder boy. Must not of been as hard to beat Mladin 3 times as everybody thought? Ha ha ha.

The only SBK kid doing anything is Hayden (I don't really count Crutchlow as he was really mainly a 600 man) though it is nice to see SBK wonders Vermuelen and Spies found eachother for a chat.

Pin pulled......... wait for the BANG!

I think Spies has lost his confidence after those crashes in the season opener chatter his bike running like a lose cannon after destroying it Jerez front end described it as a pathetic race then Estroil four or five mistakes his quotes then Le Mans my visor had a lot of water in it 16th everyone else rode in the same conditions you're in a top team results like 11th, 11th, 8th and 16th aren't acceptable and you know it. As for that Yamaha works ride there could be more names in it come on Spies get your head out of your ass and start performing know you're bogey tracks Estroil and Le Mans are out of the way.

As for his next destination could be a works Ducati ride depending if Hayden or Rossi decide to move on IMHO.

Interesting to see how Rossi was more confident of his front end than most. The way he was passing going in deep and hard (oooerr, obviously) suggests he was totally confident in his front grip. And the fact that others crashed through losing the front when following him would seem to confirm it. So has he got the front end grip sorted, or is it that he's so used to having no feel from the front that he felt right at home in the wet? More likely the latter. Although the difference between him and the other Ducatis makes it more of a puzzle. Certainly Rossi had a lot more confidence in the Ducati's grip than Hayden.

Rossi to Honda in 2012?

After the last dull MotoGP race it was nice to see Rossi battle for the podium in France. He needs a decent bike next year. The genius at work

Rossi really showed how much Experience of riding in the wet he has! He looked to me the only rider other than Lorenzo Who stayed off the Drying race line to save his Tyers and it paid off!

In my opinion Yamaha have well and truly established themselves as the bike to beat this year. I think once Honda get the chatter sorted, and get a decent setup in the wet, then they will be on par.

good result

Well done lorenzo master class in riding. well done rossie the worst prototype bike on the grid beating the best prototype bike. it shows with the right bike in the dry rossie is still class. unlucky for crutlow and dovvi they pushed just that little bit to hard. i dont think stoner pushed hard enough but their again if your retiring your mind might not be fully on the game?
