Spanish MotoGP rider Dani Pedrosa (Repsol Honda Team) does a wheelie during the Valencia's MotoGP Grand Prix qualifying session in Cheste near Valencia. The Spaniard has won the Valencia motorcycling GP, the final race of the season.

The City & My Life|AFPHonda rider Dani Pedrosa won the Valencia motorcycling GP here on Sunday, the final race of the season.

World champion Valentino Rossi of Italy was second and his Spanish Yamaha team-mate Jorge Lorenzo was third.

The 30-year-old Rossi wasn’t too deflated to have bowed out at the end of the season in second place.

“We were a lot slower this weekend, but it didn’t matter as I was already the world champion,” said Rossi.

“I’m happy. Tomorrow (Monday) we will go out and try the new bike for next season.”

Lorenzo, who doesn’t enjoy the happiest of relations with Rossi, admitted that he could have pressed on the gas once Australian pole-sitter Casey Stoner crashed out.

“The stable called me and said Stoner was out of the race. I should have put my foot down but instead I allowed Dani (Pedrosa) to take a second up on me and that was enough.

“All in all it has been a good season and I will come back stronger next term.”
