While our Champion Casey Stoner is still recovering from his operation, Jorge Lorenzo was the only rider representing our colours in the Misano MotoGP. With his main contender Dani Pedrosa crashing out, Lorenzo ran a flawless race, leading from the start to the finish. Apparently an easy race but actually could have been difficult with the lack of concentration with no strong challenger But this did not happen and Jorge Lorenzo with the X-lite X-802 got to the top of the podium. With this victory Jorge consolidates his lead in the championship while Stoner is in third.
The next race is September 30th at Aragon
Here are the Jorge's declarations.
JORGE LORENZO X-lite X-802
"It’s been a very tough weekend because Dani and I have been very close in the qualifying and the warm up. Unfortunately today he had really bad luck, first with the lights at the beginning of the race and then Hector took him out. This was really unfortunate for him. In Holland we were unlucky and today he was unlucky, anything can happen in these races. We have to be happy with our result and the point advantage we now have, for sure we are much more calm now than before the race! The race was difficult for everyone, only having qualifying was not enough when you have to set up the chassis and electronics and everything for the race. It was hotter during the race so there was less grip too. I almost crashed in turn one but managed to save it too!"
