14 finish, four of those got lapped. Is this the world's premier class?
LORENZO lead most of the Laguna Seca USGP race but when Stoner passed him on the start/finish straight, Yamaha's top man had nothing left in his locker. Pedrosa almost highsided himself into next week but managed to stay on after surviving a brutal highside/lowside/tankslpper combo.
Crutchlow could match - but never quite better - Dovizioso's pace, while Hayden spent the race clawing back from a poor start, managing to take Ducati's highest finish with 6th, meanwhile teammate Valentino Rossi lowsided at the approach to The Corkscrew. That front end is still giving Rossi nightmares.
