Sepang MotoGP Results

Dani Pedrosa (Honda) continued his torrid pace by winning in extremely wet, treacherous conditions in Sepang earlier today.  Pedrosa has won 5 of the last 6 races.  Riding smart on the slippery track, points leader Jorge Lorenzo (Yamaha) came home in second place just ahead of Casey Stoner (Honda) in third.  The Ducatis of Nicky Hayden and Valentino Rossi finished fourth and fifth, respectively.

With just two rounds remaining, Lorenzo has a 23 point lead in the championship.  His team will be making sure he does not DNF in either of the next two races in order that he can secure another MotoGP title.

    Lorenzo’s lucky star shined again, he was able to hold it straight right before teh red flag, otherwise Pedrosa would have taken the lead in the points…

  2. Nick says:

    The rider at the top spot on the podium doesn’t usually get there on accident. Good show Dani.

    My dvr recorded the Japan race again! What gives? Anyone else have that issue w/ Speeds broadcast at 3am central? For the record, anyone but Pedrosa!

      Rain delay. The first 15 minutes or so is of the Japan race. The rest of it would have been the Sepang race up until the red flag. They’d end up calling the race at that point.

    Geez what horrid conditions. Pedrosa and Lorenzo appeared hardly affected until Lorenzo’s bobble right before the red flag. Doesn’t matter how many dani wins if Lorenzo keeps getting seconds. Game over.
