MotoGP podium finishers give thoughts on rostrum performances

MotoGP podium finishers give thoughts on rostrum performances

The MotoGP rostrum finishers stepped off their respective Yamaha bikes and gave their immediate reactions following the Alice Grand Prix de France.

Valentino Rossi - Race Winner

`90 victories is fantastic. It´s fantastic to catch a rider like Angel Nieto. It was a great race; I didn´t expect to be so fast, but we modified some things this morning and we were faster in the dry. Then it started to rain and I tried to ride very sweetly. We had enough grip to continue and now we are waiting for Mugello.´

Jorge Lorenzo - Second Place

`I am happy for this all-Yamaha top three. We have a very competitive bike and today we have demonstrated this. It was a dream to finish fifth, and I was thinking all night about this race. To finish second is amazing. Now it´s time to recover and head to Mugello.´

Colin Edwards - Third place

`I thought I got a good start, but then I looked ahead and I was third. I tried to push but couldn´t get around Pedrosa and Stoner. Looking at the lap times I knew there was more there. Track conditions were okay, not perfect but good. Congratulations to everyone at Yamaha and Michelin.´
