ALCANIZ, Spain (AP): Jorge Lorenzo won his first race of the MotoGP season at the Aragon Grand Prix yesterday after points leader Marc Marquez and Honda team-mate Dani Pedrosa both crashed in the rain.

Lorenzo changed for a bike with tires for wet conditions after it started to rain halfway through the race. The move proved the right one after Marquez and Pedrosa both decided to push on with tires for dry surfaces, only to fall with a few laps to go.

Marquez leads the standings with 289 points. Pedrosa is next with 215, with Rossi another point behind.

Street to be named after legendary Best

HAMILTON, Bermuda (CMC): Bermudian football legend Clyde Best, one of the first black players to play top-flight football in Britain, is to have a street named after him.

Best is best remembered for his spell at London-based club West Ham, where he scored 47 goals between 1968 and 1976.

Best also played in the Netherlands for Feyenoord, as well as in North America for Tampa Bay Rowdies, Toronto Blizzard and Portland Timbers.
