MotoGP Rewind: A recap of the #AragonGP

Although it hadn’t seemed like it, the controlled exterior of Marc Marquez (Repsol Honda Team) was taking some effort – with MotorLand Aragon proving the mental oasis after a long run of races with no dry win. Knowing he had the pace and that the track was perfectly suited to him, Marquez even said in the pre-event Press Conference that MotorLand was a track on which he would attack, and attack he did.

After a moment early in the race that saw him drop back, the Repsol Honda rider then fought through into the lead and pulled away – judging the pace to perfection. Behind, Jorge Lorenzo hit back in style against Movistar Yamaha teammate Valentino Rossi – hunting the Italian down in the later stages and then taking the flag unchallenged as the Italian ran wide trying to keep the pace.

#ChaseCam: Lorenzo dices past Rossi for 2nd place

Other news saw the first ever return to premier class competition of a MotoGP™ Legend as 2006 World Champion Nicky Hayden stepped in for injured Jack Miller at Estrella Galicia 0,0 Marc VDS. Getting up to speed impressively, Hayden scored points on his return – thought to be a one-off at the time...

With the gap having been getting smaller for some races, MotorLand was a coup for the number 93: 25 points, in front of Rossi – and Lorenzo getting the better of the Italian too. The flyaways beckoned with the gap at 52 points – making the title a long but real shot at the home of Honda; the Twin Ring Motegi.
