Moto: Lorenzo takes Spanish Grand Prix

Jorge Lorenzo joined Alex Criville as the most successful Spanish rider in 500cc/MotoGP history after taking his 15th premier-class win, and first as the reigning world champion, in a dramatic Spanish Grand Prix, according to Eurosport. Of the top five riders at the end of the opening lap – Casey Stoner, Lorenzo, Marco Simoncelli, Andrea Dovizioso and Ben Spies – Lorenzo was the only one to reach the chequered flag without running off-track or falling in the wet conditions. A perfect combination of speed and patience proved the key to his second consecutive home Jerez victory and the Factory Yamaha star now leads the world championship by nine points over Repsol Honda’s Dani Pedrosa, who finished in second place – but 19 seconds from Lorenzo – on Sunday.
