Pedrosa wins after 125cc Czech carnage.

While the medics attended to the conscious Luthi (Nieto appeared unhurt), the lead fight had now been reduce to just two – Pedrosa and Perugini. With the pair having made their dislike of each other well known after several collisions already this year, fireworks were expected.

Meanwhile, new KTM signing Mika Kallio - riding with a broken finger after a fall yesterday - was now up to an amazing fifth, and challenging Barbera and Dovizioso for fourth and third respectively! Could a debut podium be on the cards…?

Into the closing stages and Pedrosa had gone all-out to break Perugini before the final lap, and his efforts were rewarded with a 'safe' 2.024secs lead as the last circulation began. However the final podium place was now being contested by no less than four riders with early leader de Angelis recovering well from his earlier problem to lead the Kallio, Barbera and Dovizioso battle.

The superb De Angelis succeeded in breaking away from his rivals to secure third, while Kallio defeated Barbera and Dovizioso for KTM's best GP result so far, helping to justify Arnaud Vincent's surprise sacking.

But man of the moment was undoubtedly Pedrosa, whose victory, together with many of his rivals falling, means he now has one hand on his first ever world title.

Full results to follow...

1. Pedrosa
2. Perugini
3. de Angelis
4. Kallio
5. Barbera
6. Dovizioso
7. Giansanti
8. Borsoi
