The four-part docuseries follows some main premier class contenders in their pursuit of 2022 title glory

Winning a MotoGP™ World Championship is never easy – and nor should it be. Of the 24 MotoGP™ riders that begin a season, only a handful will be able to claim the mantle of title challenger - and only one of those will take the ultimate glory.

And of that handful of contenders, each one will face a myriad of challenges, unforeseen events and obstacles over the course of a season that will set them either on the path to success, or failure. This docuseries, starting on the 27th of January, tells the story of this journey and the how and the why of triumph and defeat.

Combining exclusive behind-the-scenes and previously unseen footage, this four-part documentary follows five main contenders battling for the 2022 MotoGP™ World Championship crown, from pre-season all the way to the decider at the compelling season-finale in Valencia.

Watch as reigning World Champion Fabio Quartararo, eight-time World Champion Marc Marquez, and 2020 World Champion Joan Mir fight for glory against Aprilia veteran Aleix Espargaro and up-and-coming Ducati star, Francesco Bagnaia, for the most coveted prize in two-wheeled motorsport. Immerse yourself in a record-breaking 2022 season defined by intense rivalry, fierce action, and untold drama.
