The most amazing final lap EVER in MotoGP.
At Catalunya
Lorenzo took Rossi at T1, rossi tried the outside, then went wide at T3 when trying to take Lorenzo. Lorenzo defended at T10 then Rossi took Lorenzo IN THE FINAL CORNER to win

That was the best last lap in MotoGP 2009!! and it was remembering me to Rossi vs Gibernau battle back in 2003-2004.

And in 125cc, poor Julian Simon he thought it was the finish of the race but actually it was the final lap. Great finish in the end for 3rd between Gadea and him.


Race Ratings : 10/10 :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

Battles are won by those with the courage to believe.
They are won by those who find a heart, find a heart to share.

I don't think I took breath in the last lap! Most incredible moment since Estoril 2006

BBC commentators went mental. Catalunya: good for MotoGP, s*** for F1

Wow with how rubbish F1 season 2009 is I'm getting more and more into MotoGP. What an incredible race today. Never seen anything like it. I couldn't believe it when Rossi took that lunge. No F1 driver would ever risk a result like that - probably just sit back and save the engine :zz:

That Rossi/Lorenzo battle was fantastic, best I've seen since Jerez 05. Only Laguna Seca last year comes close, it was mindblowing. I thought Rossi would get him out of the final corner and beat him on the line, never thought he'd pass at the final corner. Brilliant stuff.

A bit like the F3000 race at Monaco a few years ago. But then he slowed down to celebrate the last lap and got overtaken! :lol:
