Race results from the French Grand Prix at Le Mans, round four of the 2009 MotoGP World Championship.

The race began in the wet but finished in the dry, prompting a switch to dry weather bikes during the race. Valentino Rossi was among the first to pit, but fell when he rejoined on slick tyres and also received a ride through penalty.

Sete Gibernau was ruled out of the French Grand Prix after fracturing his left collarbone during a Saturday morning free practice highside.
