FINAL COUNTDOWN IN VALENCIA
As the curtains close, the MotoGP, Moto2 and Moto3 bikes rev for one last time in the 2018 season at the Circuit Ricardo Tormo.
With all three champions crowned, Marc Marquez, Francesco Bagnaia and Jorge Martin can all sit back and relax from the continuous points counting of this year and let themselves loose in one last battle.
In MotoGP, Andrea Dovizioso may have secured second place, but the Yamaha pairing of Valentino Rossi and Maverick Viñales are only within two points of each other for the Bronze medal bid. Jorge Lorenzo returns from injury for one last “hoorah” on the Ducati, before jumping ship to the Repsol Honda next year. But as we edge closer to 2019, we say goodbye to the soon-to-be MotoGP legend, Dani Pedrosa, and the British bullets Scott Redding and Bradley Smith.
Although all three Moto2 World Championship medals have already been designatesd this year, the fight for the final 25 point up for grabs is still very much alive. Luca Marini took his maiden victory last time out in Malaysia, so can he continue his form as the intermediate class hit European soil?
Moto3 take to the Valencian track for the final time this season too. As Jorge Martin and Marco Bezzecchi prepare for their rookie season in Moto2, could we see a race winner at the final round of 2018 who could possibly take the crown in 2019. Maybe Aron Canet, John McPhee or Fabio Di Giannantonio will show their hand or will Jorge Martin or Marco Bezzecchi prove to the class why they took the top spot so many times this year.
