Rossi wins as racing returns.

Meanwhile, pole sitter Nicky Hayden fought back from an early race slump to take fourth position, while Honda Gresini's Marco Melandri won a battle with Suzuki's John Hopkins for fifth.

Carlos Checa was a lonely seventh, while 2006 race winner Toni Elias produced some exciting slides on his way to a hard fought eighth as he continues to recover from his broken femur.
