Rossi grabs tight win at German GP

WORLD champion Valentino Rossi won a tight German MotoGP Grand Prix in Sachsenring yesterday, snatching the lead from fellow Yamaha rider Jorge Lorenzo with two laps to go and fending off a last-gasp attack.

Rossi's win equalled Giacomo Agostini's all-time record of 159 podium finishes in grand prix racing, and extended his lead at the top of the standings. Dani Pedrosa on Honda was third. Italian Marco Simoncelli of Gilera won the 250cc race only 0.479 seconds ahead of Spain's Alex Debon to keep his title hopes alive.
