Pedrosa wins in Germany and Hayden on the podium
The high track temperature at the Sachsenring seriously affected the tyres in all three races at the Sachsenring. In MotoGP Dani Pedrosa won by a mile and his team mate Nicky Hayden was third. Loris Capirossi was second thirteen seconds behind Pedrosa. In 250cc Hiroshi Aoyama won and crossed the line just ahead of Kallio and De Angelis. In 125cc the victory went to Talmacsi.

Alex De Angelis was the third rider on the podium. The Italian led the group from the start but he lost two positions on the last lap to the two KTMs. Lorenzo, who could not find a competitive rhythm over the weekend was fourth and got thirteen valuable points which help him to remain as leader of the category.
