Moto GP: Spectacular win for Pedrosa in rainy Le Mans; bad day for Jorge Lorenzo and Valentino Rossi
20 May 2013 @ 00:26

SPAIN'S Dani Pedrosa roared to victory in the Moto GP in Le Mans today during a rain-soaked race, and was joined on the podium by the UK's Cal Crutchlow and Pedrosa's team mate Marc Márquez.

This puts Barcelona-born Pedrosa in the lead in the world championship rankings ahead of Márquez, who started badly in today's race despite gaining pole position on Saturday and dropped back to eighth place because of the wet conditions on the track.

But once he had got the hang of the circuit and how to ride it in the rain, a spectacular comeback saw him soaring to third place.

Cal Crutchlow also managed to storm ahead and overtake several riders, netting second place and showing that he had fully recovered from his accident during Saturday's pre-race training session.
