All or nothing: MotoGP™ hits boiling point at Buriram

Grands Prix aren’t just about the title fight though. Last year Yamaha weren’t far behind the leading duo and Maverick Viñales and Valentino Rossi will be gunning to put Monster Energy Yamaha MotoGP back on the podium, and Danilo Petrucci, Dovizioso’s teammate, needs a result. After a tougher run of form in the last few races, Buriram could be a good track for the Ducati man to bounce back, and he’ll want to – quickly.

Marquez vs Moto2™: the start of the home straight?

That story, ultimately, is one of consistency. Marquez has lost out once through a mistake of his own,  and he’s reaping the rewards of the combination of speed and settling when it’s necessary. Navarro just behind him has been a fairly consistent presence each race weekend too, although he’s yet to stand on the top step. That means that if Marquez does start to feel the pressure, Navarro could end up challenging for the crown from the rare position of not being a race winner…yet.

The Moto3™ duel reignites on the road to Buriram

We’ve only raced once at the Thai track and last year’s first contact makes good reading for Dalla Porta. He came second, only a tenth down, and Canet? He didn’t race. The Spaniard arrives with no former knowledge of the venue after he missed the event last year due to injury, so it could prove more of an uphill struggle for him. With the rest of the grid, minus the rookies, joining Dalla Porta in having more experience, that only adds to Canet’s challenge.

MXoN conditions close to toughest ever for Team USA’s Osborne

MXoN conditions close to toughest ever for Team USA’s Osborne

Fifth in Open class and sixth in Nations classification the result for top American.

Rockstar Energy Husqvarna’s Zach Osborne has declared Sunday’s conditions at the 2019 Motocross of Nations (MXoN) as some of the worst he’s experienced in his career.

Osborne, who formed part of Team USA alongside Husqvarna teammate Jason Anderson and Yamaha-mounted Justin Cooper, finished fifth in the Open class via 5-15 results.

“It’s been a tough day for everyone, but maybe especially for Team USA,” he commented. “I feel that we did all we could, we came into the event with a great attitude and a great team, things just didn’t work out for us, but that’s racing.

“We prepared well, but conditions and luck weren’t with us. I think these might have been the worst conditions I’ve ever raced in, certainly some of the toughest. Each of my motos went okay – they were tough, but fifth in my first race was okay.

“My second race was harder. I got a decent start, but I found it hard to move forwards. Also, I had to change goggles once and, yeah, it was tough. From a team point of view, it’s not at all the result we wanted, but I’m sure we’d do it all again to be here racing for our country.”

It was a considerable effort from the high-profile American team, which arrived in Europe early to prepare, eventually credited sixth overall in the 2019 running following an incident-filled trio of motos on Sunday.
