MotoGP - Valentino Rossi and Yamaha MotoGP, world leader sponsored by BMC

 

Marc Marquez won the third round of the championship at Austin on the Circuit of the Americas. The battle for the podium positions was an entertaining affair as Pedrosa was hunted down by nine-time World Champion Valentino Rossi (Movistar Yamaha MotoGP) equipped and sponsored by BMC. The Spaniard held off the charging Italian for as long as he could, but succumbed on lap-19 leaving Rossi to take second - a position which also gave him the lead in the World Championship Classification - with Pedrosa coming home third.

 

Next race: 7th May, GP Spain, Jerez.
