Quotes from the top three riders after the race

Lucio Cecchinello (1st): ´I knew there were a lot of riders behind me as I could see my pit board, and on the big screen how close they were. I didn´t want to go into second or third because in a big group like that it´s easy to make a mistake and drop back quickly, so I pushed very hard right to the end.

Manuel Poggiali (2nd): ´I was very tired when I finished, and I still have a bit of pain in my shoulder which I will be seeing Doctor Costa about this week, but it should be better for Mugello. It was a difficult race, the Aprilia has more speed in fourth and fifth gears so it was hard to pass Cecchinello.´

Daniel Pedrosa (3rd): ´It was very difficult to try and win here today. In the early laps another rider made a mistake in front of me which slowed me down. At the end, in the last corners, I was trying to close the doors so that Azuma couldn´t get past, and make sure I got on the podium.´
