Marc Marquez run at an end as Pedrosa wins Czech MotoGP

Brno: Marc Marquez`s hopes of setting a record 11 straight MotoGP wins ended on Sunday as Honda team-mate Dani Pedrosa of Spain won the Czech Republic Moto GP in Brno.

Pedrosa, who won at Brno in 2012, finished the 22 laps on the dry 5.4-kilometre (3.36-mile) circuit in 42min 47.800sec, ahead of Yamaha duo Jorge Lorenzo and Valentino Rossi, with Marquez finishing fourth.

Marquez was looking to become the first premier class rider ever to win the 11 opening races of a season.

Italian legend Giacomo Agostini won the opening 10 races of the premier class season in 1968, 1969 and 1970 at a time when he dominated the sport.

However, no one has ever won the first eleven -- in part because Agostini`s perfect season in 1968 comprised only 10 events.
