Yeah it wasn't great! The race was pretty dull, it's usually far more exciting than that.

Rossi qualified in first and Edwards was 2nd. So its Yamaha 1 and 2! shocking  Pedrosa was about to take pole on the last lap but got stuck behind Vermuelen and couldnt get past him. Pedrosa is in 3rd and Stoner is in 4th. Hayden qualified in 6th! Another shocker from Hayden.

Stoner won, by miles literally! Elias in 2nd and Capirossi in 3rd!  Ducati 1st and 3rd.  Rossi went from1st on 1st lap top 5th by going off the track, then he got back to 2nd and got bumped by Elias twice and ended up in 10th. Something wrong with the bike or tyres. There was also a big pile up between 4 bikes on the 1st lap! Luckily no-one was too badly injured.

It was a good race, lots of overtaking between 2nd and 8th! Stoner leads the Championship by 10 points over Rossi, and Ducatis lead the constructor championship!  The next race is in China next week!

Yep it was and it was a great race! 

Colin Edwards got his first ever pole qualifying in over 70 races and Stoner was in 2nd. Rossi started in 4th!

The race was declared a wet race as it was raining slightly which meant that the riders could pull into the pits at any time and change their tires for wet ones. But most of the riders didnt bother untill halfway through the race because it started to chuck it down.
There were riders crashing out all over the place. 2 Frenchmen were doing really well and fighting for the lead, until they both crashed out. Vermuelen won from Melandri and then Stoner. Rossi finished in 6th and the pole man Edwards finished last in 12th!

Only 8 riders actually finished the race proper and another 4 who were still riding after crashing out and being able to continue. 6 riders crashed out and werent able to finish. Including Nicky Hayden with a spectacular crash! He was uninjured!  Stoner leads the Championship from Rossi and then Pedrosa.

Overall a very exciting race! The next one is in Mugell, Italy and is on the 3rd of June. The week after they are in Catalunya, Barcelona. ( I've been to see the Moto GP here a few years ago. )

Not a lot or people are interested in Moto GP! They prefer the procession of cars in which you aren't actually allowed to overtake! I think they call it F1! Lets watch an hour and a half of cars going round and round and the only time there is any excitement is when they go into the pits! woohoo Rolling Eyes lol

In qualifying today at Mugello, it rained! But there was also a couple of dry practice sessions, so it makes it very hard to prepare for the race!

Stoner was fastest followed by another Aussie, Vermuelen and then the home favourite Rossi! Pedrosa 8th and Hayden 13th!

The race is live on Eurosport and BBC2, tomorrow at 1pm.
