Elias loses eighth place.

Toni Elias has become the second rider at Assen to receive a 20 second post-race penalty, which drops the San Carlo Honda Gresini rider from eighth to twelfth in the MotoGP race classification.

The Spaniard received the penalty after pushing Suzuki's Loris Capirossi off track at the final chicane. Elias recovered from the incident to claim eighth while Capirossi dropped from sixth to tenth, which now becomes ninth.

Earlier in the day Nicolas Terol lost second position in the 125cc race after a 20-second post-race penalty for a similar last lap incident with world championship leader Julian Simon.

What a waste of a factory bike, been mediochre for a while now. The extra effort he puts in at cntract time is one of the most cynical things I've had the misfortune to watch in professional sport for a long time....

Oh what a penalty-happy race direction we had today. A tiny little bit inconsistent with their decisions though. I wonder if they decide race by race when they want to have a look in the rule book or just do it all spontaneously when they feel like working. @Beszti: Do you think before you type? Because judging by the ridiculous blabber you wrote I kinda doubt that.
