Repsol Honda's Dani Pedrosa barely won the USGP, spoiling a big lead on the final lap to hold off Valentino Rossi by 0.344 seconds. Jorge Lorenzo was third.

Pedrosa led every lap, taking the lead in turn one and never relenting.

Lorenzo made a move on Rossi in turn 11 with five to go, but could not make it stick and he dropped back.

The Ducatis finished next, with Nick Hayden getting his best finish of the year in 5th place.

The highsides in qualifying were nasty! Man, I cringe every time I think about how Stoner slammed that pavement.

Cool

Yeah, highsideing has become an art form with Jorge although that kid seems tuff as nails. He can spring back and ride just as good hurt, or even better.
