Old video and may be a repost but one of the best finishes/shot of all time.

Marco Melandri with amazing control/feel of this bike.

Not mad. IMO the track did look wet but that's my opinion and I remember watching the race and seeing all the pit stops these guys were doing because of the rain on/off throughout the race.

Either way, legit race!
