SPANISH SPORTS | DUTCH MOTO GP | GOOD DAY FOR SPANISH RIDERS

Great day for SPANISH SPORTS in MOTOGP held in Assen (Dutch Gran Prix) with domination in two of the three categories. In the 125cc category the top three places were Spanish, in the Moto2 category a Spaniard won & in the Gp category Spanish World Champion Jorge Lorenzo finished 6th after Italian Simoncelli did one of his party tricks & took Lorenzo ( & himself ) out in the 5th curve after starting, but more later.

Maverick Viñales


Young Spanish talent MAVERICK VIÑALES won the 125cc category with second & third going to fellow country riders Salom & Gadea respectively. Maverick is proving to be the rookie of the year so far & looks destined towards bigger & better things. Current leader in the World Championships ladder, Spaniard Nicol Terol, did not race due to a fractured finger after falling yesterday in practice.

What made this race the more exciting was the wet conditions & to watch how young Maverick "mastered" the difficult conditions.

Simoncelli falls & takes Lorenzo

American rider B.Spies put in a magnificent race to win ahead of Casey Stoner & Italian Dovizioso in the GP category. However, the talking point & controversy occurred at the start & on the 5th curve when Italian Simoncelli did a dangerous & unnecessary manoeuvre to fall & take with him Spanish World Champion JORGE LORENZO.

Both got back on their bikes & Lorenzo put in a brave effort to come in 6th & thus lessen the damage for the World Champions points table, but the damage was done. Italian rider Simoncelli again is in the spot light with another exhibition of "careless" & "dangerous" riding which remembers his last incident with Dani Pederosa whom broke his collar bone.
