2010 Sachsenring 125cc Race Result - Classic Wet Error Ends Race Long Duel

Results and summary of the 125cc race at the Sachsenring:

Marc Marquez has extended his winning streak to five in a row by taking victory in the German 125cc Grand Prix at the Sachsenring. The Red Bull Derbi rider had had to be patient in the early laps on a damp track, as local riders Jonas Folger and Marcel Schrotter leapt into the lead, gambling on the wet conditions. But as the track dried, Marquez and Tuenti Derbi man Pol Espargaro reeled the two Germans in, then passed them to build a huge lead.

A duel then unfolded that looked to last all race, with first Marquez then Espargaro leading, and contesting that lead very physically. Passes were tough and fairings were bashed, but both men stayed upright, until three laps from the end, when Espargaro pushed a little too hard. The Tuenti Derbi rider ran just a little wide, running a little too hard over the painted kerbstones which were still damp in places, and lost the bike completely. With Espargaro out, Marquez went on to take victory uncontested.

Espargaro's crash left Tomoyoshi Koyama and Sandro Cortese to contest the final podium spots, after battling with Tito Rabat, Bradley Smith and Randy Krummenacher for most of the race.
