Spoiler Alert: 2011 MotoGP Brno results posted below
Following his first podium of the 2011 MotoGP Championship, Repsol Honda’s Dani Pedrosa began strongly Sunday at Brno, getting a quick start typical of the Spaniard.
But by the end of the first lap, the reigning MotoGP Champion Jorge Lorenzo was in the lead, stalked closely by Pedrosa.
For the second time since Catalunya MotoGP, San Carlo Honda Gresini’s Marco Simoncelli will start from the pole position.
The Italian edged out Yamaha Factory Racing’s Ben Spies Friday at Assen qualifying by a mere 0.009 of a second, with the current MotoGP points’ leader, Repsol Honda’s Casey Stoner, a further 0.290 of a second behind Simoncelli.
