Le Mans MotoGP: Pedrosa takes wet win, Cal second!

Dani Pedrosa took his second win of 2013 in wet conditions at Le Mans, ahead of Cal Crutchlow taking his best ever MotoGP finish and rookie Marc Marquez, as mechanical problems relegated Jorge Lorenzo to 7th. Andrea Dovisioso was the surprise leader off the line, making the most of his unexpected front row start to lead from Lorenzo and Pedrosa, before...

Even with all his experience ...

... Vale shows he's still a choker.

Ride of the day goes to Shrek.  In front of the factory bikes with an injury to boot.  A bit lucky that Dovi made a mistake to let him through otherwise Marquez would have taken them both.

Marquez is just an entertainment machine.  That pass on Dovi was pretty freaking good.

Great race.

Cal the new Alien

Step aside Valentino there's a new kid on the block. Broken leg,internal bleeding, What a guy.If it hadn't been for Barndoor Dovi he'd have won it.

Definitely an entertaining race, even if it wasn't the result I wanted to see!

Really excellent result from a battered and bruised Cal. Marquez astounding as always...

Rossi had a strong start and showed real potential, but even before the crash it was looking doubtful he'd have got a podium, perhaps a 4th. Apparently the M1 hit a bump in the bend when he was leaned over, but others will say that's just an excuse.

And what about Lorenzo? No excuses, just his worst non-DNF finish since starting in MotoGP!

Got to say it, but Yamaha factory team are getting seriously outclassed by Repsol Honda. It might be a combination of team and technology, but Lorenzo will be lucky to come 2nd, letalone win the Championship, and Rossi will be lucky to get even a jammy win.

Ahoy maties

Captain Pedro once again displays his new found webfooted sureness. Proving that he must have paid some attention to his high seas studies. The undoubted class act in the field today. Consistently later on the brakes than notorious late braker Dovi. Another masterclass with all others floundering in his wake.

Crutchlow, a superb ride indeed. Rather than complain about getting stuck behind Dovi he should have done what Pedro did and pass him. Dani managed that three times I believe. Especially given - contrary to the nonsense in this story - Crutchlow had consistently the fastest bike out there. It's all on the MotoGP pdf. Cal seems to go rather well with a gammy leg in the wet. Perhaps the pain helps him focus better?

Marquez. What can you say. A bit ragged initially until he found his groove and put his funk on. He really does have the potential to make a mockery of this championship. The other two Alien amigo's must be more and more worried by the talent this young man displays at each race.

Dovi. Daddy cool. A shame he couldn't do anything about the rampaging Marquez. Few, if any, can though.

Lorenzo. What went wrong? You would've thought they'd just dial in the 2012 settings and go.

An enjoyable and entertaining race throughout. GP is not dead yet.

Nice ...

... but you forgot to add that Dovi passed Pedrosa twice and that Dani was extremely fortunate not to stack it on two ocassions. On the best bike out there, Crutchlow's nothing but a nob - stick him on a Ducati and book the operation theatre in advance.

You'd have to say Wosi

On the evidence of the season to date that perhaps the world nr.6 is starting to regret the insincerity of his "Let's stay together" call to Ducati last year.
