Rossi and Pedrosa's battle of Brno

The Gauloises Grand Prix Ceske Republiky gave MotoGP fans the first chance to see the long awaited duel between Valentino Rossi and Dani Pedrosa. Whilst Loris Capirossi sped away to an unassailable lead, the reigning MotoGP and 250cc World Champions played out a battle every bit as intense as expected.

A taster of the fight for second took place in Le Mans, although on that occasion Rossi escaped from the young Spaniard before he had the opportunity to overtake, later being forced to retire due to mechanical problems.

It seems inevitable that, with just five races to go and both riders chasing the title, we will be able to enjoy more fights between the two stars before the end of the season.

In the following video we recap the best moments of the Rossi-Pedrosa duel at Brno.
