Pedrosa beats Lorenzo at Estoril
Pedrosa stalks Lorenzo before passing him
A great result for the Repsol Honda team that today saw its three riders placed in the first four positions of the Grand Prix of Portugal with Dani Pedrosa on the top step of the podium, Casey Stoner in 3rd and Andrea Dovizioso 4th.

Dani Pedrosa conquered his first win on this track, after having been glued to Jorge Lorenzo from the 1st to 24th laps, then with a perfect overtaking maneuver he took the lead of the race and ended with a three second advantage.

"I'm very happy for today's win, but more than the win I'm happy for my condition and it seems that my surgery was finally successful. I was trying to rest my arm at times as it was cramping with 15 laps to go, I was riding behind Jorge and waiting for the numbness to come together with the loss of power, but it didn't come! I'm just so happy to see that the surgery has worked, it's been around six months with this and it's a big relief. For the race, I was riding at my best, Jorge is amazing here always riding so smooth and fast, I was trying to stay with him and in the end I felt comfortable and tried to make a move and I was successful. I'm very happy to win here, it's my first win in this track and thanks to all the doctors, my physio and trainer because it's been hard work and finally we got a win".
