For Valentino Rossi this circuit have a great memory for him, last year it was the first circuit he returned back after serious injured at Mugello and did the recovery about 41 days. He still wore crutches for helping him to walk and he was wearing a special shoe too make him more comfortable with his leg. And the best quote from him to decided comeback in Sachsenring was "the track different thing and it will be hard for me, but I miss my bike and my team and I want to try. I am really looking forward to seeing everyone and being back in the paddock"
For sure, no doubt about him, he has a great spirit, good motivation and love and faithfulness with racing world
Valentino back for 1st time and he was able to show us the best racing with all pain he felt, he did a good laps and good battle with Casey Stoner for 3rd position, and Valentino Rossi passed by Casey Stoner in last lap. He did not push hard because he is the only one know about his condition, and it was fantastic and surprise result for him grabbing 4th position after missing four races.
And some good race showed by Dani Pedrosa and Jorge Lorenzo, after Jorge lead the race for nine laps, and some accident happened Randy de Puniet crashed on turn 4 and took out Alvaro Bautista with his blue bike and Aleix Espargaro. And the red flag made all riders must back to the pit about 5 minutes to check and clean the track. And Dani Pedrosa take a lead after a red flag accident and forced Jorge in 2nd Position.
And now let's see the MotoGP classification bikes result that got 1st podium in Sachsenring, so we can see the strongest of the bikes here.

Collin Edwards with his experience will have a chance to get the best result here and Cal Curtchlow will ride first time here and his recovery completely good, only some issue about tyre and front in his bike, thats why he hope the Sachsenring will have a dry weather.
