Red Bull Indianapolis MotoGP

August 30th, 2010 by Elusive Media

With the last few year’s GP, you never know what kinda weather you will get at Indy. For one, the first year it rained throughout the whole weekend and the leftovers from a hurricane ended the races early. This year, we had quite the opposite, clear blue skies, excellent racing weather! Qualifying is always an exciting time to see who will grasp the pole position. Jorge Lorenzo has been dominating this year poles and podiums. This weekend the American fans were treated to not only Ben Spies getting his first ever pole position in the premier class, but Nicky Hayden grabbing his first front row on the Ducati. It was one special moment for both in front of their home crowd.

Race Day is here and all rides start off strong, but after a strong FP1/2/Qualifying, Nicky Hayden has some issues with grip, catches a grain cover, which rips off his knee slider, because of this he wasn’t able to ride at his maximum, ending in a 6th position. Ben Spies, Jorge Lorenzo, and Dani Pedrosa took over the front where Ben tried to hold of Dani, but in the end Dani took him in the straight. Ben Spies tries to fight back, but can’t keep up with Dani’s pace. Despite losing Dani, Ben keeps a good grab between Jorge Lorenzo and finishes 2nd, which is the highest podium he has finished in the premier class. Jorge Lorenzo finishes 3rd, not happy with the ride, but happy to add some points to extend toward his first world championship in MotoGP.

Congrats to all riders! and for more news and exclusive video from this weekends race, visit!!
