Lorenzo wins Misano snoozefest

Jorge Lorenzo ended Casey Stoner’s run of victories by taking the win in an extremely boring Misano GP today.

Lorenzo made a good start and took the lead into Turn 1 from Stoner,Pedrosa,Dovizioso and Rossi,who made an amazing start from 11th place.,Nicky Hayden also made a good start and was in the top 10 but then crashed out while Loris Capirossi soon was out,due to a chain problem.

After the spits of rain stopped the top 3 remained unchanged,However after looking very comfortable right behind Lorenzo,Stoner suddenly began to drop back from Lorenzo.Pedrosa was a comfortable 3rd at this stage while there was a great battle going on for 4th between Dovi,Simoncelli,Rossi and Spies.Simoncelli quickly passed Rossi and Dovi to take 4th,with Dovi 5th,Spies 6th and Rossi down to 7th after been passed by Simoncelli and Spies.

Up front Lorenzo cruised away from the Honda’s but there would be a change for 2nd place when Pedrosa passed a struggling Stoner with a few laps to go,While behind Simoncelli,Dovi and Spies were involved in an epic battle for 4th place.Simoncelli passed Dovi for 4th into turn 6,then a heart stopping moment,all 3 men were side by side heading down into turn 8,Spies and Dovi would out outbrake themselves which gifted Simoncelli 4th with Dovi 5th and Spies 6th.

Lorenzo cruised to victory by over 7 seconds from Pedrosa,Stoner,Simoncelli,Dovi,Spies,Rossi,Bautista,Barbera,Crutchlow,Aoyama Abraham,Edwards,De Puniet and Elias.
