Honda Repsol duo aim for Le Mans mastery

Honda Repsol team riders Casey Stoner and Dani Pedrosa will look to maintain their dominance of the MotoGP World Championship, which has seen them both claim podium places in all three rounds so far, at this weekend’s French Grand Prix.

Stoner won last year at the historic Le Mans circuit and will vie for a third straight victory this season.

Pedrosa celebrated his 100th career podium in Portugal last week and will return to Le Mans looking for a much-improved race over last year, when he broke his collarbone in a collision with the late Marco Simoncelli.

The main race gets under way at 7pm Cambodian time on Sunday.
