Spain's Dani Pedrosa surged past Jorge Lorenzo in the final turn at the Czech MotoGP, winning a dramatic finish in Brno to narrow his compatriot's lead in the riders' championship.

Pedrosa, coming off his second first-place finish of the season last weekend at Indianapolis, overtook Lorenzo midway through the race but needed to pass the championship leader at the end after losing his lead in the middle of the last lap.

The Honda rider is now on 232 points, 13 points behind Lorenzo in the standings with six races remaining.
