The Ultimate Rush

Despite all three rider World Championships already being decided, there’s still a lot at stake in Valencia this weekend. 

- Rookie of the Year will be decided: Franco Morbidelli (EG 0,0 Marc VDS) sits 10 points ahead of Hafizh Syharin (Monster Yamaha Tech 3), a healthy advantage heading into the last race. 

- Top Independent Team rider will be decided: Johann Zarco (Monster Yamaha MotoGP) sits one point ahead of the unfit Cal Crutchlow (LCR Honda Castrol) and five ahead of Danilo Petrucci (Alma Pramac Racing). The battle between the Frenchman and the Italian looks set to be a cracker.
