Quotes from the top three riders after the race

Marco Melandri - 1st : ´I wasn´t very confident of my physical condition at the start of the race, but after three laps, I was OK and I chased Fonsi. With five laps to go, the pace increased and I saw how Fonsi did a mistake and Rolfo crashed while he was trying to follow me. This win is very important as I wasn´t fully fit´.

Sebastian Porto - 2nd : ´I´m very happy with this second podium and to have taken the second position. It has been a very tough race and I gave it all at the start to stay with the Aprilia riders. In the end, I could pass Elias. I hope to keep on like this´.

Toni Elias - 3rd : ´This weekend didn´t start well, as I had a lot of problems. The team did a great work. I took a good start and I saw that Melandri, Fonsi and Rolfo were much quicker than me. At the end of the race, my front tyre was worn and nobody told me to let Fonsi go through. I don´t mind respecting team orders´.
