Valentino Rossi returns to winning ways

Rossi charged to an 80th premier class victory in front of second-placed Marc Marquez, with the weakened Lorenzo coming home fifth. The crowd at the Iveco TT Assen celebrated wildly as they saw one of the most decorated and popular riders in history return to winning ways for the first time since the 2010 Malaysian Grand Prix.
Reacting to the victory, nine-time champion Rossi stated, “I’m happy but I can’t believe it and it’s a great feeling to be back in first position. It’s been a long, long time since Sepang 2010 and during those years I’ve ask myself the question: ‘Can I get back to first position?’ So it’s been a tough period but I’ve never given up and I’ve always worked hard because this is my passion. I love to ride and race motorcycles.more

Man of Steel’ Lorenzo races to top five

Whilst his teammate Valentino Rossi got back to winning ways for the first time since 2010, Lorenzo ended the race utterly drained after riding through the pain barrier over 26 laps to ensure that he conceded only two points to title rival Dani Pedrosa in the standings.
Lorenzo’s presence in the race had itself seemed miraculous, given that he flew from Assen to Barcelona on Thursday evening for surgery on a broken collarbone after his high-speed free practice crash. He faced a rigorous fitness test on Saturday morning to prove he could ride safely with a newly-fitted plate and eight screws securing the broken bone.
Summarising an astonishing last 36 hours, Lorenzo stated: “It would have been impossible to believe some minutes after my crash that this could happen. We were brave to do the operation the same day, (but) if I had waited until Friday the doctors would not have let me race.” more

Crutchlow notches up third podium of 2013

The Monster Yamaha Tech 3 rider lost ground in the opening stages of the race, but was still delighted to come back and overhaul Repsol Honda Team’s Dani Pedrosa. He also caught Marc Marquez on the last lap but there was contact between the two bikes; Crutchlow recovered and would cross the finish line third.
“I think we touched, but I said to Marc that I wanted him to see after the race what Dani sees on TV,” Crutchlow joked after the race, referring to the late-race touch between the Honda teammate last time out in Barcelona.
“It was a difficult race again, but we are still in the same position: too little, too late. I felt we had the potential to challenge Valentino (Rossi, winner) at the front today but I started too slow again and the first five laps I was wide in all the corners, but I’m very happy. We’ve had three podiums this early on in the season, it’s good for the championship and we are making good steps this year.more

Ducati describes bike plan for 2014

From the start of next season, factory outfits will be able to supply machines to private teams which will be able to run according to the 2014 rules, allowing them several differences when it comes to technical regulations.
“Since the new rules came out for next year, where it is actually possible for a full MotoGP bike to run in what would have been the CRT class – using the single ECU and single software – we are considering to make available the 2013 bike with this package,” Paulo Ciabatti, Ducati’s MotoGP Project Director, explains to in an exclusive video interview.
“It has an advantage in terms of fuel; they will have 24 litres while the full MSMA MotoGP entries will have only 20, 12 engines instead of five and no frozen development for the engines.
“We think it could be an interesting package for some of the private or satellite teams and we are working on this plan. Ideally, we think we will make four available. We are discussing with some teams but nothing has been decided yet.”more
