Review the Gran Premio A-Style de Aragón!

The key moments of the 13th round of the 2010 MotoGP World Championship are all highlighted here with easy one-click access to the best of the video action and reaction.

A new venue on the calendar for 2010 the Motorland Aragón circuit hosted Round 13 of the schedule over the weekend, and the Spanish track was roundly praised by all after another fantastic chapter in the charge for the title in all three categories.

Giving an overview of what was to be expected by those tackling the track was Moto2 rider Kenny Noyes, whilst the OnBoard footage provided an even closer inspection of this fresh challenge.

A return to the three free practice format saw the opening round of sessions take place on Friday morning, with the first day affected by rain. Dani Pedrosa was fastest in the first MotoGP run as he capitalised on the dry conditions, and in the wet afternoon session Casey Stoner took over at the top of the timesheet.

Stoner was once more top in FP3, laying the foundations for what was to be his second pole position of the season as he also dominated qualifying, setting the only sub-1’49” lap of the weekend.

Ever present in the minds of all inside the paddock a minute’s silence was held in memory of Shoya Tomizawa prior to the 125cc race on Sunday morning, as everybody paid tribute to the Japanese rider who passed away two weeks previously.

When the race action got underway it was Pol Espargaró who came out on top in the 125 event, taking his third win of the season as Marc Márquez crashed out, thus reopening the title chase once more.

Andrea Iannone took victory from pole position in the Moto2 race as he closed the gap on second-placed Julián Simón in the standings.

And when the main event arrived it was Casey Stoner who won his first MotoGP race of the year, taking what turned out to be a comfortable victory with Pedrosa and Stoner’s Ducati team-mate Nicky Hayden completing the podium.

Despite the remote setting there were also just over 70,000 fans present on race day to soak up the atmosphere, with the Paddock Girls assisting the action in keeping them entertained.
