125cc World Championship leader Nico Terol took a strange victory in Sunday's San Marino Grand Prix - after passing title rival Johann Zarco just metres from the flag.
The strange part was that Zarco exited the final turn several bike-lengths ahead and looked to have his first win in the bag.
But rather than tucking behind the fairing and racing for the line, he instead turned to look back at Terol on several occasions (pictured), and even tried to push the Spaniard away with his hand!
Terol simply rode around him and won his seventh race of the year by just 0.022sec, extending his title lead over Zarco from 26 to 31 points.
Zarco looked shattered after the latest in a string of near-wins: The Ajo Derbi rider was denied victory after a post-race penalty at Catalunya, lost a tie-break at Sachsenring and then came off worse in a last turn showdown at Brno.
Zarco explained: "I knew that Terol was faster on the straight and I didn't leave the last corner so fast so I knew he could pass me. That is why I was so angry. I'm disappointed but after a bad race at Indy I've shown I can still fight for victory."
Terol had burst from third on the grid to first into turn one, while pole sitter Zarco fluffed the start and made contact with two riders in his desperate efforts to reduce the damage.
Back up to fourth by the end of the first lap, Zarco and team-mate Efren Vazquez then moved past Sandro Cortese and set off in pursuit of Terol.
They soon caught the Aspar Aprilia rider, with Vasquez then dropping back, creating a straight fight for victory between the title contenders.
