A wet MotoGP at Jerez saw many of the top riders crash and it definitely was one of ‘those’ days where a lot of talking was done..Lorenzo (Yamaha) emerged with the win over second place Dani Pedrosa (Honda) and third place Nicky Hayden (Ducati). At one point, Valentino Rossi (Ducati) low-sided into Round 1 winner Casey Stoner (Honda), causing Stoner to crash. Rossi re-entered the race to finish fifth, but Stoner (although uninjured) did not finish. Lorenzo has the series points lead after two rounds.
