British MotoGP Results : Jorge Lorenzo Out-shined Everyone

British MotoGP : Jorge Lorenzo Out-shined Everyone – Lorenzo has led the race from start until the end. It has become his third win of the season in five races. The attention of being the favorite was transferred to him after team-mate Valentino Rossi broke his leg in practice for the Italian Grand Prix two weeks ago.

Following Lorenzo in the second place is Andrea Dovizioso, last year’s winner. Following in the 3rd place is Ben Spies of America. Nicky Hayden was edged into fourth with Casey Stoney fifth, a place ahead of Frenchman Randy de Puniet with Dani Pedrosa trailing in eighth.

“I’m so excited. I didn’t expect to go so fast at the beginning, the track was quite cold and it was difficult to go fast with these tyres,” he told BBC Sport. “Today was very important for the Championship.” – BBC Sport
