Valentino Rossi won a tight duel with reigning world champion Marco Marquez to win Saturday's Motul TT Assen and stretch his lead atop the MotoGP standings.Marquez tried to overtake the Italian nine-time champion on the final chicane of the race and the pair appeared to touch, forcing Marquez to slow down and sending Rossi through the gravel before he crossed the line in 40 minutes, 54.037 seconds, 1.242 seconds ahead of Marquez.Marquez is now fourth, behind Andrea Iannone, but with 89 points to Rossi's 163, Marquez's grip on the world title appears tenuous even with 10 races of the season to go.
