BT Sport, MotoGP™’s British broadcaster, once again treated bike fans to another Sunday filled with four MotoGP™ classics as their search to find ‘The Greatest Race’ continues. Last week, Valentino Rossi and Casey Stoner’s epic Laguna Seca battle from 2008 won a place in the final alongside the 2009 Catalan Grand Prix, which won in week one.
This week, viewers were treated to Dani Pedrosa vs Jorge Lorenzo from Brno back in 2012, the Termas Clash from two years ago where Briton’s Cal Crutchlow came out on top in a chaotic Argentina GP, Marco Melandri getting the better of Casey Stoner at Istanbul Park in 2006 and, finally, Stoner, Rossi and Pedrosa offering up a triple threat scrap at the 2007 Catalan GP.
LCR Castrol Honda’s Cal Crutchlow joined presenter Gavin Emmett from his home in California to discuss all things lockdown and, of course, the 2018 Argentina GP that saw him get the better of Johann Zarco, Alex Rins and Jack Miller in one of the craziest races of recent memory.
"I was able to battle in a group with some great riders. Some friends as well. That was the last win, and hopefully, it won't be my last MotoGP career win."@calcrutchlow recalls Argentina, 2018 in great detail ????#TheGreatestRace pic.twitter.com/09L89kjEX7— MotoGP on BT Sport (@btsportmotogp) April 12, 2020
Now Red Bull KTM Factory Racing Test rider, Dani Pedrosa, was also a live guest on the show as he analysed the last lap fight between Jorge Lorenzo and himself at the 2012 Czech Grand Prix. He also spoke about his career longevity with Pedrosa incredibly featuring heavily across all four races shown on BT Sport, which took place over a 12-year period.

There’s one spot in the final remaining, which will be decided on Sunday 19th April from 10am, before the final then takes place a week later and BT Sport will officially find MotoGP™’s Greatest Race.
