Reigning MotoGP World Champion Marc Marquez has admitted he was on the verge of crashing "many times" during his run to victory at today's Aragon MotoGP round as he didn't have a good feeling with his RC213V.

Valentino Rossi finished a respectable fifth in his comeback race at Aragon in northern Spain, just 25 days after suffering a double fracture of his right leg.

Dani Pedrosa was unimpressed with a "rare move" from Valentino Rossi during the Aragon MotoGP but the daring Italian was praised by Marc Marquez following his remarkable premature return.

"Even on the last lap I saw that he was only 0.8s [behind], I mean still he believed but I was trying to manage the risk with the distance".

Pedrosa had passed Vinales in Turn 1 and was able to reel in Rossi and then Lorenzo with some stunning pace despite his second row start, leaving the Yamaha team-mates to fight it out for fourth, with Vinales in front when it counted.

She also asked the children about their favorite foods and stressed the importances of eating lots of vegetables and fruits. She regularly held events in the garden and wrote her first book, "American Grown", about her experience of planting it.

Rossi, though, slips 56 points behind Marquez as his hopes of 10th world title begin to fade. "I think it's important to come back on the bike as quickly as possible and not to spend another race at home", Yamaha rider Rossi told a news conference.

The Japanese GP is on October 15.

"We are leading by 16 and 28 points - it's better to have that advantage than not", he said. "Especially my side, knowing more the bike, knowing the way to get the maximum, especially on the race".

South African Darryn Binder also made a welcome if less spectacular return from injury, finishing a game 22nd in the Moto3 race, while big brother Brad took a fighting fifth in Moto2. He later was handed a six-place grid penalty for the next race for "irresponsible riding" after appearing to veer from side to side on the final lap.
