Quotes from the top three riders after the race

Fonsi Nieto - 1st : ´It was a very enjoyable yet tough race. When I crashed, I tried to not waste too much time, and I achieved it. When I saw Matsudo crashing out, I thought about victory, but it was pouring down in the last couple of laps. It´s a nice time now, and I want to thank all the spanish fans who came here´.

Marco Melandri - 2nd : ´Today, I played it safe and try to avoid mistakes, because the track conditions were pretty tricky. I could have tried to overtake Fonsi, but I preferred to stick with second without taking any risk, and keep my advantage in the standings´.

Sebastian Porto - 3rd : ´The race was really tough, because of the track conditions. I didn´t take a great start, but I improved later on. It´s my third consecutive podium finish. It´s a great streak and I would like to thank my team´.
