LE MANS: 2010 champion Jorge Lorenzo won the French MotoGP and took the overall lead in the championship. The 25-year-old Yamaha rider, recording his second win of the season and 19th MotoGP in all, came home clear of Italian great Valentino Rossi on a Ducati while defending world champion Casey Stoner of Australia was third on a Honda. “The race went extremely well for me,” said Lorenzo. “I got a lead and though Stoner closed on me he suddenly dropped off and I was able to relax and coast home. I admit my only problem was to keep my concentration alone up front.”
