Barbera wins 125cc Brazilian battle.

Hector Barberá won a typically combative and exciting 125cc Rio Grand Prix to the delight of the watching Brazilian football star Roberto Carlos, a major collaborator in the Seedorf Racing team.

Other than a brief cameo from Jorge Lorenzo, who stormed to the front before crashing on the eleventh lap, Barberá shared the lead almost exclusively with Casey Stoner until a late charge from Andrea Dovizioso.

With Roberto Locatelli and Mirko Giansanti in close attendance but unable to mount a serious challenge, the last two laps were a desperate three-way battle for the line, with Barberá holding off Stoner for the win and Dovizioso completing the podium.

Barberá's second victory of the season moves him up to second in the championship, sixteen points behind Dovizioso.
