Thanks to Lorenzo and Stoner our X-802 is once again on the highest steps of the podium. Sixth win for Jorge and fourth podium in succession for Casey: they are both in a winning streak and go on giving us continuous emotion. For Lorenzo, who gained the Pole Position, this is the first victory on this track and he celebrates it dressing the part of Neil Armstrong conquering Planet California with his X-lite replica Moon. Casey expected maybe to win, seeing the pace he had during the free tests; he didn't manage, but he moved another step towards the win, which we hope will arrive soon. Good race also for Marco Melandri, who seems to have recovered even if his shoulder is still aching. After the Warm Up, completed at 5th place, he dreamt to fight with the firts ones, but unfortunately the changes brought to the bike and the shoulder pain didn't allow him to go beyond the 8th place, an encouraging result anyway. Lorenzo is firmly leading the ranking with an advantage of 72 points on his direct follower. Stoner 4° and Melandri 9°
