MotoGP Australia: PICTURES: Marc Marquez falls from the lead

World champion Marc Marquez falls from the lead of the Australian MotoGP at Phillip Island.
For the second time in three seasons, MotoGP champion Marc Marquez fell from the lead of the Australian Grand Prix.

The Repsol Honda star had been caught out by a cold tyre in 2014, but took full responsibility for losing the front of his RC213V under braking for the hairpin on lap 10 of Sunday's race.

Fortunately for Marquez, just as in 2014, he was able to walk away unhurt and already has the world championship in the bag.

Cal Crutchlow went on to claim victory, ahead of Valentino Rossi.

For such a bad bike, this Honda is winning a lot of races.. :). Congrats to Carl, he might have hardly guessed to bag 2 in such a tough championship. Marquez confirms he's human and a mistake is always behind the corner for everyone. Rossi, well, if you had ever wondered why he's a legend, now you know why.
