Quotes from the top three riders after the race

Marco Melandri (1st) : ´It was a great race, but also a tough one as Fonsi was very close to me and faster than me in the first section of the track. I tried to make the gap in the last three laps, but I couldn´t achieve it. When I saw Fonsi overtaking me in the chicane, I was pretty confident as I was able to take the lead in the end´.

Fonsi Nieto (2nd) : ´I´m not that happy as I have been the fastest all weekend long and I believed I could have win. I´ve been waiting for the last lap and overtook Melandri, but his bike was faster and I couldn´t do anything´.

Toni Elias (3rd) : ´I made a huge mistake at the start and I had to fight my way back to the front in the first half of the race. I managed to keep up the pace to overtook Battaini at the end of the race. I think this was the best race of my career and I have to thank my team for their great job´.
