Jorge Lorenzo took a big leap towards regaining the MotoGP title after he won the San Marino Grand Prix in Misano.

As the Yamaha rider swept to another win in a dramatic race, nearest challenger Dani Pedrosa crashed out.

The Repsol Honda rider felt his motorcycle leathers working when he was bundled out of the race by Hector Barbera on the first lap.

"It’s a shame," said an apologetic Barbera afterwards. "Unfortunately, when I followed Dani’s wheel I lost my braking point and hit the brakes far too late. I tried to slow the bike down, but I lost grip on the front.

"It was my fault that he crashed out and I apologise profusely to him for that."

Italy's Valentino Rossi was a creditable second in his home race for Ducati, while Alvaro Bautista was third on the Gresini Honda.

Northern Ireland's Jonathan Rea, making his MotoGP debut for the injured Casey Stoner, was eighth on the Repsol Honda.

Britain's Cal Crutchlow crashed out but stays fifth in the standings, behind Andrea Dovizioso, who came fourth at Misano.

Stoner lies third on 186 points behind Pedrosa on 232 and Lorenzo on 270 points, with just five rounds to go.
