Race results - Le Mans.

Both Marco Melandri and Ducati Marlboro team-mate Casey Stoner chose to pit for their wet weather bikes, after suffering mechanical problems with their number one machines.

Rossi celebrated his 90th victory with the man he has now equalled as second in the all time grand prix win list, Angel Nieto, who gave a lift to the Italian during the slow down lap.

Ha, ha, ha, ha, Sorry I''m a neutral, just love watching racing. I have to laugh at all the stoner fans and others who have written off Rossi, a man that has dragged your sport to a never seen high and have shown a total disrespect to a true world champion. Rossi I salute you. You are a true sportsman. :)

So rossi haters, did he make the wrong choice going to bridgestone? Is he past it? Was his post race celebration pathetic and over the top? I take it your all gonna ignore the website for a while now, and i think its clear that rossi is the big favourite to win the championship, his post race celebration was one of the best i''ve seen, the tribute to robert dunlop was so touching and nieto bringing him in on the bike was just something special to watch. Obviously a great race if your a rossi fan, but the battle for 2nd was very good to watch, how bloody amazing is lorenzo and a yamaha 1, 2 & 3...just brilliant! Roll on mugello and another rossi win! :p
