Rossi and crew celebrate a great win after an epic race. Points lead? Still got it.

The final lap and final corner saw jostling between Marquez and Rossi.

Marquez tried to push Rossi wide--it worked.

Rossi surveyed the grass/gravel in front of him and decided it had decent traction.

So he kept it pinned and stayed in the lead.

Marquez rides through Rossi's gravel dust. Note 'Ohhh Fuuuuuggghh' body language as he watches Rossi take the win.

Rossi's was a very popular win with his fan club, which is essentially all fans at Assen.

Where was the standing on his bike, the over the top antics like those performed by Lorenzo when he snatched victory? Rossi's celebratuons were sedate by comparison. 'People in their right minds never take pride in their talents.
