Stoner (Go Casey!!!) dominates the first race of the season by leading all the practices, both warm-ups, and of course, winning the race - leading from start to finish. Rossi (Go Vale!!!) comes in 2nd, which is better than his 5th last year... Lorenzo 3rd (Go Yamaha!!!), Edwards 4th (Go Yamaha!!!), and Dovizioso 5th. Pedrosa, riding injured finished 11th and Nicky (Go Hayden!!!), who qualified 16th after a big crash finished 13th... not a great start... but better than expected considering his crash. Toseland came in 16th... which should make Edwards happy!
Race was canceled yesterday because of the rain... so they raced today...
Next race: Motegi, Japan on April 26th!!!
Rossi & Yamaha baby!!!
