Free video highlights of Rossi-Stoner battle

motogp.com has put together a compilation of the best moments from the superb fight for victory between Valentino Rossi and Casey Stoner at the Red Bull U.S. Grand Prix.

The 2008 edition of the MotoGP race at Laguna Seca will be remembered by fans for many years to come after a nail-biting battle for glory between standings leader Valentino Rossi and World Champion Casey Stoner. In the early stages Rossi set about preventing Stoner from building up a lead at the front after the Aussie had won three races in succession in previous rounds and dominated practice and qualifying in California.

The Italian had to do everything in his power to stop Stoner and his dash through the gravel at the bottom of `the Corkscrew´ was a heart-stopping moment which he rode out to stay ahead of the title holder. Eventually of course Stoner yielded with a mistake which saw him run off and track and crash with eight laps remaining, only to remount and cross the line thirteen seconds behind an ecstatic Rossi.

Watch all the key moments from the brilliant Rossi-Stoner Laguna Seca battle in the accompanying free video.
