2019 MotoGP Grand Prix Preview
The MotoGP World Championship travels five continents and draws a global television audience in the tens of millions, and every MotoGP Grand Prix promises something different. A total of nineteen fixtures are stacked across this year’s calendar, starting with the season opener in the desert heat of Qatar in late March, continuing to the scenic mountains of Austria in August and a trip to Thailand in early October for the newest addition, and concluding on the sandy beaches of Catalonia Spain in mid November.
Spain’s Marc Marquez enters the new season the defending Rider’s Champion, winning his fifth MotoGP World title in 2018 in dominant fashion. Andrea Dovizioso finished in second, though he was a long way behind Marquez, with veteran Valentino Rossi taking third. With the win, Marquez became the first to score a three-peat since Valentino Rossi accomplished the trick more than a decade ago. His dominant performance last season sees him favourite once again this year, but he’ll have a hoard of experienced riders, including Rossi, Dovizioso and Lorenzo, chasing him throughout.
