Pedrosa also fell victim to satellite Alice Ducati team rider Toni Elias, powering to a second rostrum in succession after new rear suspension parts three races ago transformed his previously dismal season. “I am free for next year and I am ready, so let’s see what happens,”he grinned. Pedrosa settled in fourth; Chris Vermeulen (Rizla Suzuki) had a blazing charge through to fifth after almost crashing on lap one, smashing the fairing with his leg, and finishing the lap way back in 13th place. He’d prevailed over and escaped from a big battle between James Toseland (Tech 3 Yamaha) and Andrea Dovizioso (Scot Honda); while team-mate Loris Capirossi interposed himself between the same pair by the end for seventh. Marco Melandri (Marlboro Ducati) and Colin Edwards (Tech 3 Yamaha), who had trailed round last in the early laps, bereft of rear-tyre grip, rounded out the top ten. Nicky Hayden (Repsol Honda) did not start, after his injured foot had become steadily worse through practice. Randy de Puniet (LCR Honda) crashed out on the first lap, and Alex de Angelis (San Carlos Honda) on the second. With Rossi clear on 262 points, Pedrosa closed up to within two of Stoner, on 187 and 185 respectively. Lorenzo has 140, Dovizioso 118. 31
