Lorenzo: “There is a lot at stake”

Lorenzo: “There is a lot at stake”

Jorge Lorenzo heads into the most difficult race of the 2015 season with everything on the line.

A second place finish in the Malaysian GP saw Movistar Yamaha’s Jorge Lorenzo once more close the point deficit to teammate Valentino Rossi. The pair head to the Gran Premio Motul de la Comunitat Valenciana split by just seven points, Rossi in the lead. With the incidents of Sepang behind him, Lorenzo has focused all of his attention on being fully prepared for the race and doing his best to take the 2015 title. Lorenzo has achieved mixed results at Valencia while in the premier class, winning in 2010 and 2013 but also experiencing several difficult races.

After Valencia there are no more races in 2015, no more chances to recover points and fight back, it’s all or nothing for Lorenzo. Regardless of result Lorenzo is out to take victory in Valencia and complete a clean sweep of Spanish races in 2015. If Lorenzo can secure the 2015 MotoGP™ World Championship it will be his fifth World Title, his third in the premier class. Regardless of result it will be straight back to work for Lorenzo as the MotoGP™ riders begin to prepare for 2016 with two days of testing after the race.

Jorge Lorenzo: “We have arrived in Valencia after a very busy and exciting season. In Malaysia we got a good result and we recovered more points in the championship, but I will skip past all that happened there and stay focused in Cheste, where there is a lot at stake. I hope the fans will support us at home and that we will have a good race. This year I won the previous three races that were held in Spain and to do well in Valencia would be amazing. I've always noticed the warmth of the fans and I'm sure in Valencia we will enjoy a great show. I will give everything on the track to get this championship title.”
