Shanghai 05: Stoner wins to take the double

Casey Stoner (Carrera Sunglasses – LCR) has won the Taobao.com Grand Prix of China at Shanghai after a closely fought battle with Italian Team Scot rider Andrea Dovizioso.

Starting in pole position, Stoner initially had a bad start but recovered almost immediately to lead the race from start to finish.

Stoner was followed all the way by Dovizioso, who didn't let up on the pressure and eventually took second place, making him the overall leader of the Championship on 53 points, three ahead of Stoner.

Third place was taken by Japanese rider (Telefonica Movistar Honda) Hiroshi Aoyama. He inherited the position from Randy de Puniet on the 16th after the Frenchman had mechanical problems, causing him to lose ground and eventually finish in 18th.
