Stoner storms to victory at Aragon
Casey Stoner took another 25 points home at the Gran Premio de Aragon as the Australian took his eighth win of the 2011 season, with Dani Pedrosa taking second and Jorge Lorenzo third. Casey Stoner claimed another victory at the MotorLand circuit on Sunday, giving the Australian his eighth win of the season and Repsol Honda their 100th win. The important victory puts the Australian 44 points clear of defending World Champion Jorge Lorenzo (Yamaha Factory Racing). Dani Pedrosa finished the round in second place behind his team mate, while Lorenzo made his way to the final podium spot.

Marco Simoncelli (San Carlo Honda Gresini Team) finished 6 seconds behind Lorenzo to take fourth, a strong finish for the Italian considering he ran off the track on his first attempt at passing the YZR-M1 of Ben Spies on lap 9. The Yamaha rider had a great start off the outside of the first row, leading into turn one in front of fellow front row starters Stoner and Pedrosa, but the two Honda riders got past him by lap two, and the American finally finished the race in fifth place.

Álvaro Bautista (Rizla Suzuki) finished in sixth off an eleventh place start, passing Hayden (Ducati Team) on lap 10 and holding the position to the finish line. The American and Hector Barberá had a scrap for seventh, with the Hayden passing the Mapfre Aspar ride on the penultimate lap.

Cal Crutchlow (Monster Yamaha Tech 3) finished ninth, ahead of Valentino Rossi who started his Ducati Team machine from pit lane, and Hiroshi Aoyama (San Carlo Honda Gresini) in 11th.

Randy De Puniet started from tenth, then ran off the track on the first lap, finally finishing in 12th position, ahead of the final finisher of the race, Colin Edwards (Monster Yamaha Tech 3)

Andrea Dovizioso (Repsol Honda) crashed out of the race on the first lap, as did eight place starter Karel Abraham (Cardion AB Motoracing), while Loris Capirossi (Pramac Racing) and Toni Elías (LCR Honda) collided on lap 15.
