Valentino Rossi stands on the brink of winning the 2001 500cc World Championship after Max Biaggi crashed out of the lead of today's Pacific Grand Prix, handing victory – and a 67 point lead – to the Honda rider, with three rounds left and a possible 75 points available.
Loris Capirossi had upstaged championship rivals – and fellow countrymen - Rossi and Biaggi to take pole in yesterday's second qualifying session (his third this year) and a new circuit record in the process.
