BRNO, Czech Republic (AP) — Defending MotoGP champion Marc Marquez won the Czech Grand Prix on Sunday to increase his overall lead with a third victory of the season.

Starting on a wet track that was quickly drying out, riders were allowed to swap their bikes for ones with tires suitable for dry conditions.

Marquez was the first to do so, a strategy that paid off for him. The Spaniard used the speed of his Honda to take the lead with 18 laps to go and cruised unchallenged to victory in 44 minutes and 15.974 seconds. His Honda teammate Dani Pedrosa was second, 12.438 seconds behind, while Maverick Vinales was third, 18.135 back.

Marquez leads the overall standings with 154 points from Vinales on 140 in second.
