Loris Capriossi stunned the GP paddock today with a flag to flag victory in the Brno GP.

After escaping the scrum it was pole-sitter Valentino Rossi and Dani Pedrosa who were left to fight it our for second place.

Pedrosa tried a number of times to get past Rossi but the reigning world champion always fought back immediately and by the end of the race Pedrosa had settled for third letting Rossi cross the line four seconds ahead.

Championship leader Nicky Hayden finished in ninth which means that Pedrosa has now closed the gap to 25 points with Rossi only a further 13 behind. Quality bikes for sale: Click here.
