Mugello. In the dry and with Rossi in the series it becomes one of the most special races in the world. Fans pack the hillsides--in places.

Ex-250 champion Max Biaggi swung by Mugello to check in on his friend Jorge Lorenzo.

For Rossi fans there is but one color: yellow.

Marquez and his crew said that they changed the gearing in his Honda to better take advantage of the draft. After the race, Lorenzo said that his bikes relative lack of top speed hurt him.

Rossi fans build a memorial to Sic ...

'Oh, look at the time.' Unfortunately, Agostini didn't have time before the race start to kick the butt of that little upstart who is ruining his record books.

The duel at the front was such that Rossi could only spectate, not participate.

Lorenzo celebrates on the Mugello podium.

Marquez was elated with what had to be his hardest fought win in MotoGP yet.

This was the margin of victory ....

Marquez's crew threw him into the air after his epic victory.

It was incredible to see a Ducati near the front at Mugello but the run at the front lasted about as long as the soft tires. Not long enough.
