How to gain twenty positions in five corners.
From the ridiculous to the sublime.
Circuit Ricardo Tormo in Valencia saw the final race of the 2012 MotoGP season and conditions were as nasty as you could possibly concoct for motorcycle racing, damp tarmac.
Conditions in the race were so tricky some riders actually just quit and newly crowned MotoGP champion Jorge Lorenzo was one of the many caught out by the conditions, crashing from the lead as he was lapping riders. Dani Pedrosa won that race helped by a correct setup and tire choice, the misfortunes of others and some great riding.
I'm not going to far out on a limb saying we will see this guy a MotoGP champion in the next few years if he gets the right ride.
