Lorenzo wins at Aragon

PAR Cycle CanadaPosted on

Jorge Lorenzo (Movistar Yamaha) was victorious at MotorLand Aragon in Spain on Sunday after judging tricky conditions to perfection. 

The race began on a drying track, with Italians Valentino Rossi (Movistar Yamaha) and Andrea Iannone (Pramac Racing) suffering dramatic crashes before the skies opened. Repsol Honda teammates Dani Pedrosa and Marc Marquez also fell once the rain started to fall, leaving the door open for some fresh faces on the podium.

Lorenzo switched to his wet set-up bike with four laps to go and went on to win by over ten seconds. Aleix Espargaro (NGM Forward Racing) took second, while Cal Crutchlow (Ducati Team) finished third. For full results from Aragon, click here.

The next round of MotoGP goes October 12 at Motegi, Japan.
