2006 In Review: The battle of Mugello

Valentino Rossi and Loris Capirossi were the key players in what has been up until now the most exciting duel of the season, pitting their wits against each other in a nailbiting finale.

Rossi was way out in front for a large part of the race, although one can never count out Capirossi, especially in front of his home fans. Nicky Hayden was also in hot pursuit, looking to continue his consistent podium form.

The win eventually went to Rossi, who finally took victory number two of the season and ending a run of three races off the rostrum.
