WITH only sixteen finishers at the Italian MotoGP at Mugello, the CRT bikes cleaned up the final points on offer.

Lorenzo was untouchable from the start, fending off challenges from Andrea Dovizioso and Dani Pedrosa on his way to a lights-to-flag victory.

Bradl kept the pressure on Dovizioso and Hayden throughout the race but couldn't capitalise on that with a podium. Bradl get inside Hayden on the last lap, finishing just a few hundreths of a second off Dovizioso, bagging fourth.

Valentino Rossi made the most of a last-lap clash between Hayden and Bradl and slotted his way into fifth place. Crutchlow had tagged onto the back of Rossi for a good handful of laps, but Rossi was given a tiny amount of breathing space, when a wide Hayden rejoined the racing line between Rossi and Crutchlow. Crutchlow managed to get past Hayden on the last lap, meaning Hayden wins the most unfortunate last-lap award.

Casey Stoner had a dreadful race by his standards. The only rider to run the super-hard tyre, it looked like Stoner was making progress with 10 laps to go, but then he ran on, rejoining in 11th from 6th and ultimately that was his race finished.
