MotoGP Top Three Quotes

Nicky Hayden

I felt a lot of pressure, I didnt want to let the home team down but also wasn't going to let pride get in the way and make a risky mistake. It was really physical out there but that's why you get up every morning and train. In some races that maybe hasn't been as important as in this one.

Dani Pedrosa

I'm happy with the result, to finish second in my first race at a circuit is good. I want to thank all the American fans, they were awesome. The conditions were tough and it was a long race, my tyres were sliding all the time but the result is a perfect 1-2 for the team.

Marco Melandri

It felt as if I'd won today. It was really hard, hot and long. I wasn't fast on the first few laps, I had tyres which were too soft. I Couldn't push early, and using the clutch so much gave me arm pump early on. At the end of the race I was quite fast, then passed Vermeulen to get on the podium.
