Jorge Lorenzo savours title triumph at home

Two weeks after winning the 2010 MotoGP World Championship, Jorge Lorenzo returns home to celebrate.
Jorge Lorenzo has finally gotten the opportunity to truly savour his MotoGP title triumph as he returned to his native Mallorca to celebrate with family, friends and fans.

Thousands of people turned out to witness the FIAT Yamaha rider as he touched down on home soil for the first time since wrapping up the title at the Malaysian Grand Prix almost two weeks ago.

He was met by crowds and dignitaries at the airport before enjoying a parade through the capital city of Palma de Mallorca, ending at the Illes Balears Presidential Palace.

He then presented one of his special 'Astronaut' helmets to President Frances Antich, before joining his family on the palace balcony to wave to the thousands of people below, who joined together in a rendition of 'We Are The Champions'.

The 23-year-old will now enjoy some time at home with his friends and family before the penultimate round of the championship at Estoril in Portugal.

@Dray: it wasn't "supposedly" great, it WAS huge. If you want pictures, check the Spanish press and you'll see. He even got a Boeing airplane named after him and decorated with his picture, courtesy of his sponsor Air Europa. Hundreds of biker rode by him from the airport. Thousands of people went to congratulate him and celebrate with him. F.C. Barcelona -yes, the best soccer team in the world- will dedicate him a match. Of course Spain supports its raiders, it is not for nothing that this year we have dominated all three categories from begining to the very end. You are just another bitter 46 fan, that's all.
