Moto2: Lorenzo continues winning run

Jorge Lorenzo tightened his grip on the 250cc championship by taking his seventh win of the season at Brno

Moto2: Lorenzo continues winning run

It was another dominant display by the MotoGP-bound Spaniard, who eased away from the field with little difficulty.

Andrea Dovizioso managed to stay with Lorenzo for a while, and closed in again after a slight slip by the leader in the middle of the race. But Lorenzo had speed in hand and was able to accelerate away once more and win by seven seconds.

Mika Kallio and Alex de Angelis battled for third for most of the race, exchanging positions several times. Their contest ended in a collision with two laps to go, and while Kallio was able to continue without delay, de Angelis fell from his bike and slid into the gravel. He rejoined, but could only take 11th - ending his record of having finished in the top four in every race this year.

Hector Barbera beat Alvaro Bautista and Hiroshi Aoyama to fourth, with all three finishing within half a second.

Front row starter Alex Debon dropped to 11th by the first corner and could not get back amongst the lead group before crashing out at half-distance.
