An interesting race unfolded at Brno earlier today when virtually every rider began the race on rain tires, and then the track remained dry throughout the race. Marc Marquez (Honda) was the first rider into the pits … changing to his dry bike with slicks. This turned out to be the decisive move in the race.
Marquez stormed to a huge lead as his competitors took several laps longer to switch from rain tires to dry tires. In the end, Marquez cruised home for the win ahead of teammate Dani Pedrosa in second and Maverick Vñales (Yamaha) in third.
Jorge Lorenzo (Ducati) led the first several laps, but was delayed by his team when trying to switch to a dry set-up in the pits. He ultimately finished in 15th position.
