The final round of the 2011 MotoGP championship series was held at the Valencia circuit earlier today, and recently crowned 2011 champ Casey Stoner (Honda) recorded his tenth win of the year. Stoner came from behind to nip Ben Spies (Yamaha) by a small fraction of a second at the line. Spies finished ahead of third place Andrea Dovizioso (Honda). The teams will now focus on testing their 1000 cc bikes for next year, including a test scheduled for Tuesday.
A crash on the first lap took Ducati factory riders Valentino Rossi and Nicky Hayden out of the race. Both of them were unhurt.
