The Spanish motor cycling star Marc Marquez made it seven straight victories with a thrilling win in the Catalunya MotoGP ahead of the Italian Valentino Rossi and fellow Spaniard Dani Pedrosa.

The runaway championship leader and defending champion survived a furious onslaught from Pedrosa over the final two laps after seizing the lead from Rossi, who led for much of the middle part of the race.

Marquez extended his points tally to a perfect 175 while Rossi stays second on 117.

Marquez' 18-year-old brother Alex won the Moto3 race.
