Is­land ride

Inside Sport - - Things You Must Not Miss -

Not much drama to be had in Moto GP, as Marc Mar­quez dom­i­nates the cham­pi­onship again. There’s no short­age of ten­sion, though, as Mar­quez (pic­tured be­low right) and Valentino Rossi (le) are em­broiled in a feud that’s the talk of the cir­cuit. The beef goes back a few years, and was in­flamed anew after a crash in the Ar­gentina race ear­lier this year when the Ital­ian leg­end felt the young Spa­niard had taken him out de­lib­er­ately. At a press con­fer­ence last month, Mar­quez of­fered to shake hands, only to have Rossi flat refuse. We’ll all be hang­ing on the next turn in this ri­valry at the Aus­tralian Mo­tor­cy­cle Grand Prix (Oct 28), once again in its fa­mil­iar home at Phillip Is­land. Mar­quez won there last year, and will be seek­ing a third vic­tory in the event.
