Catalunya MotoGP - Race Results

Race results from the 2014 Catalunya MotoGP, round 7 of 18.
Scott Redding drops one place after a post-race penalty for cutting the track at turn one.

MotoGP champion Marc Marquez remains unbeaten in MotoGP 2014 after a thrilling last lap showdown with Dani Pedrosa at Catalunya, decided when Pedrosa clipped Marquez's rear wheel with a few turns to go.

The incident allowed Valentino Rossi, who had led for most of the race but couldn't quite attack the Repsol Hondas by the final laps, to take second place.

A yellow flag when Marquez and Pedrosa both passed Rossi through Turns 1 & 2 with seven laps to go saw Rossi return to the front, but the RCV riders worked their way back ahead of the Italian with four laps to go.

Marquez's seventh win of the season was Honda's 100th in the MotoGP era.

Feel so bad for Dani, I haven't seen anyone ride so hard for first since the Catalunya race in '09. At least that shuts up the notion that he can't fight. He may not have won but definitely the ride of the year so far. Also amazing is what Rossi was able to do on that Yamaha, leading until 4 laps to go and only 0.5 from the victory, considering Lorenzo was 4 seconds behind. 35 years old and pushing a 20 year old prodigy to his limits...
