2018 MO­TOGP: MO­RE COM­PE­TI­TI­VE­NESS, MO­RE EXCITEMENT, MO­RE RACES

Excelencias del Motor - - Moto GP / Moto GP -

THE 70TH EDI­TION OF THE WORLD MOTORCYCLING CHAM­PIONS­HIP IS ABOUT TO KICK OFF. EXPECTATIONS ARE HIGH IN THE TOP CA­TE­GORY TO SHOW A PARITY LE­VEL THAT WE HA­VEN’T SEEN IN A LONG TI­ME. HON­DA, DU­CA­TI AND YA­MAHA ARE STILL ON TOP OF THE LIST MA­DE UP OF SIX COM­PE­TING BRANDS, WHI­LE SUZUKI IS SHOWING A MO­RE COM­PE­TI­TI­VE LE­VEL. KTM AND APRILIA HAVE TO PUSH HARDER. Twel­ve teams and twenty-four riders will be figh­ting in a grid whe­re Bo­log­na plays the leading role with eight bi­kes. They are fo­llo­wed by six gol­den wings.

In my opi­nion, Marc Mar­quez is the ri­der to be de­fea­ted, whi­le Du­ca­ti is the bi­ke to be left behind. As an in­ter­es­ting ele­ment, in the up­co­ming season

we will have 19 GPs, which has no pre­ce­dents in world cham­pions­hips sin­ce the very be­gin­ning, back in 1949. Ex­cept for March, we will have at least two races per month, with three events in Au­gust and

October. We can’t ask for mo­re!
