MotoGP podium trio speak after A-Style TT Assen

MotoGP podium trio speak after A-Style TT Assen

The top three in the MotoGP Dutch showdown faced the cameras after taking their spots on the rostrum.

Casey Stoner – Race Winner

`We´ve known that we had the pace to do it, but it makes you even more nervous knowing that the only thing that can go wrong is you! It managed to stay dry for the race, and I´m happy with that. Valentino´s crash was unfortunate, I don't want anybody to crash so that I can win points that way, but I´ve had some bad luck too this year. The team have done a great job this weekend.´

Dani Pedrosa – Second Place

`It was important to finish in front, second is a very good result. We had struggled a little, and in the race it was impossible to follow Casey. He was so fast, so I just tried my best to push. I am happy with this result, with returning to the podium and with the championship position.´

Colin Edwards – Third Place

`What can you say? `What comes around goes around, he who laughs last´ etc, whatever you like. I thought I got a good start, but I got to the first corner and it found out that I didn't. Valentino crashed in front of me and I had to practically stop the bike. I got closer and closer to Nicky and Dani, but there was nothing that I could really do, then we had some luck at the place that got me two years ago! I´m really happy to be on the podium, especially with my wife and kids here to see it.´
