Re-live the Rossi-Gibernau duel in Brno with onboard footage

At the eleventh round of the 2005 MotoGP World Championship, the Gauloises Grand Prix Ceske Republiky, Valentino Rossi clinched his ninth victory of the season after an intense duel with rival Sete Gibernau. The World Champion and the Honda rider fought until the very last lap of the race when disaster struck for the Spaniard.

The duel between the two riders was cut short when Gibernau suffered a technical problem and was forced to stop just a few corners from the finish line. While Gibernau was unable to take the flag, Rossi blazed to victory and eventually finished with a two-second advantage over fellow Italians Loris Capirossi and Max Biaggi. This win allowed Rossi to consolidate his championship lead and to take a further step towards his seventh world title.

Re-live the duel between Rossi and Gibernau and all the drama of the last lap in an exclusive video shot from Sete Gibernau's bike's onboard cameras.
