MOTOGP >>> nEWs he's BaaaaCK It looked a bit of a struggle, but Marc Marquez finally battled his way past Jorge Lorenzo – and stayed there – with a lap to go to take out the British MotoGP, becoming the first rider since Valentino Rossi to take 11 races in a season. That total looks set to be annihilated shortly ... Lorenzo made a great start to pull out a gap at the front in the early stages but Marquez stayed with the front group and took the fight to his Yamaha rival. Marquez had the pace to catch Lorenzo, but then made a couple of small errors (really!), giving Lorenzo the opportunity to retake the lead twice. The pair battled right to the last lap, touching at one stage as Marquez jammed the Honda into an extraordinarily tight space inside Lorenzo’s Yamaha, with Repsol Honda eventually crossing the line 0.732s ahead. Rossi, while unable to stay with the front pair, did a superb job in winning the battle for third with Dani Pedrosa (Repsol Honda Team) and Andrea Dovizioso (Ducati Team). Rossi made it onto the rostrum by just 0.175s over Pedrosa and 0.544s by Dovizioso. Pol espargaro (Monster Yamaha Tech3) won the battle for sixth as his impressive rookie campaign continued, with stefan Bradl (LCR Honda), Andrea Iannone (Pramac Racing Ducati)), Aleix espargaro and top British finisher scott Redding (GO&FuN Honda Gresini) completed the top ten. soon-to-depart from Ducati Cal Crutchlow struggled down in 12th, whilst Bradley smith was 22nd after experiencing a (bike!) rear end problem. 17 GPWEEK.com // 17 GPWEEK.com // PARTNERS:
