Aprilia Racing Confirms All Their Riders


ESPARGARÓ, SAVADORI AND SMITH WITH APRILIA RACING IN THE 2021 SEASON

Aleix Espargaró, Lorenzo Savadori and Bradley Smith will be the Aprilia Racing riders for the 2021 MotoGP World Championship season.

The forced loss of Andrea Iannone, and above all, the vast amount of time his ordeal took, severely damaged Aprilia Racing, whose only “fault” was remaining loyal to their rider and rightfully trusting in reasonable times for the conclusion of the proceedings.

Over the last few weeks, the names of several riders have been associated with Aprilia Racing, as always happens in the negotiating phase. Some of the possibilities evaluated did not come to fruition independently of Aprilia Racing’s desires, so between the situations that were actually feasible and the possibility of continuing with the three riders who rode the RS-GP this season, the latter was chosen.

Michelin And Oliveira Make History In Portugal

Michelin And Oliveira Make History In Portugal


Michelin saw the final chequered flag of 2020 fall today as the latest venue in MotoGP™ witnessed a comprehensive victory from start-to-finish for local hero Miguel Oliveira (Red Bull KTM Tech 3) in the Grande Prémio MEO de Portugal from the Algarve International Circuit near Portimao.

This was the first time that MotoGP had visited this impressive Portuguese circuit which features constant elevation changes that gives it the nickname of ‘The Rollercoaster’. The 4,592m layout proved popular with riders and they used the grip from their MICHELIN Power Slick tyres to reap the full experience from the track. Michelin utilised the ruling that allowed it to bring four front and four rear slick tyres – this is permitted if it is a new track or has been recently resurfaced, which the Algarve International Circuit met on both counts. The undulating nature of the track meant the rear grip was a crucial factor for accelerating through the uphill sectors, whilst braking stability on the front was equally important as bikes and riders descended. During the two practice days all eight slick tyres were tried and tested by the field with four specifications being utilised in today’s 25-lap race. The mix saw medium and hard front symmetric slick tyres being the preferred choice, whilst all the riders went for hard rear, but the choice was split between the symmetric and asymmetric versions they had available to them.

MotoGP 2020 Round 15 Repsol Honda Team end 2020 with double points haul


Fighting rides from both Stefan Bradl and Alex Marquez delivered a double-top ten to wrap up a strong final weekend in Portugal.

The unprecedented 2020 MotoGP came to a close in Portugal with a trio of tremendous races across the classes. Conditions were again near perfect as the sun loomed over the Portimao circuit.

Using morning Warm Up to confirm the final aspects of his setting, Alex Marquez was again strong and consistent throughout the 20-minute session. The MotoGP rookie ended in seventh but with excellent pace, pace he showed immediately when the lights went out at 14:00. Steadily picking his way through the field, Alex found himself on the edge of the top ten after just six laps. Before long Alex was with the group fighting for fourth and continued his steady progress until the very close of the race. There was never a moment to rest as the group brawled throughout the entirety of the 25-lap race.

#BeastMode engaged: Bastianini wins the 2020 Moto2 World Championship


Enea Bastianini (Italtrans Racing Team) is the 2020 FIM Moto2™ World Champion. The Italian took the crown with fifth place in the Grande Premio MEO de Portugal, enough to finish nine points clear of both Luca Marini (Sky Racing Team VR46) and Sam Lowes (EG 0,0 Marc VDS).

Bastianini began his career on minibikes in Italy before his first taste of the Grand Prix paddock came in the Red Bull MotoGP Rookies Cup in 2013. Ending the year in fourth and taking two victories and a pole, it was an impressive performance from the Italian and he moved up to the Moto3™ World Championship the year after. In his rookie year he took three podiums and ended the year inside the top ten overall – as well as being named Rookie of the Year.

Aleix Closes Out 2020 With The Best Performance Of The Season


The 2020 MotoGP Championship ended with the best performance of the season by Aleix on Aprilia, not only because of his eight place finish, but above all because of the pace demonstrated in his comeback ride from the fourteenth spot on the starting grid.

It was a race built on the hard work Espargaró and the Italian team had done throughout the weekend, where only one imperfect qualifying prevented them from achieving an even better result. One statistic stands out to describe Aleix’s Sunday: his best time - less than two tenths behind the leader - done on the penultimate lap.

Albert Arenas is the 2020 Moto3 World Champion


Albert Arenas (Gaviota Aspar Team Moto3) is the 2020 FIM Moto3™ World Champion. The Spaniard, who started the year with a win in Qatar, sealed the deal in the final race of the season with a 12th place, taking his first World Championship by four points after three wins and two further podiums.

Arenas hit the ground running in the CEV 125 Championship, as it was then, with the Spaniard’s first season in 2011 seeing him score some solid points. The next year it changed to Moto3™ and he took his first podium and pole position, and the season after that his first win in the series. The end of 2014 saw Arenas make his Grand Prix debut in the final round in Valencia, before 2015 proved one of his most pivotal seasons on his journey to becoming a World Champion.

Disaster In Moto2: Bulega Wiped Out At The Start, Pons Out After Four Laps


Nicolò Bulega’s Portuguese Grand Prix does not last even a single corner as - ironically enough - he was taken out by Fabio Di Giannantonio, his soon-to-be teammate. It was a very unfortunate circumstance for the Italian rider #11, who had a great start, although while entering turn one Di Giannantonio lost the front and slid towards the gravel trap and brought with him the unlucky Bulega.

Things did not go any better for Edgar Pons, who ends his final race as a professional rider with no glory. The Spaniard was forced to an early retirement after few laps due to a mechanical problem.

PortugueseGP Race Lowes signs off from 2020 with unbelievable podium finish


Sam Lowes produces a heroic performance to finish third at the Portuguese Grand Prix but just misses out on winning the Moto2 World Championship, while Augusto Fernández secures a fighting eighth place.

There was reason for cheer for Team Estrella Galicia 0,0 Marc VDS at the final round of the 2020 Moto2 season as Sam Lowes shook off the pain caused by the two broken bones in his right hand to fight until the final lap of the Portuguese Grand Prix. After three pole positions, three victories and four further podiums it has been an excellent first season with the team.

Mission Accomplished: Alcoba On The Podium At Portimao


Jeremy Alcoba’s season ends in style in Portugal, with the Spanish rider claiming his maiden Moto3 World Championship podium. With this result, he legitimises - if there was still any need - the Rookie of the Year title sealed a week ago at Valencia, and with 16 more points he finishes the year with an 11th overall place in the standings with 87 points.

A dramatic end to the weekend for Gabriel Rodrigo who wraps up a very unfortunate second half of the season. The Argentine rider, despite the crash in Q2, he had qualified in tenth place, but due to a technical problem he was forced to a pit-lane start - and to give up on any hope for a good result. His 27th place finish was the best possible result, with the #2 rider that ends the year with a 13th place overall.
