MotoGP 2016: Finale

Well sadly its nearly all over after 17 races, 9 winners in MotoGP and 25 winners across the three classes! The last race is gearing up to be massive. There is one more Championship to be decided in this eventful year. Since 2012, this has been the first year all three World Champions have been crowned! Since this weekend is the grand finale of MotoGP 2016. We Buy Any Bike wanted to look at this year's event. We wonder what the last race might hold! It’s been one to remember for sure! Half of the grid moving teams and Red Bull KTM making their appearance. Circuit de la Comunitat Valenciana will definitely be primed for an unbelievable end-of-season party. valentino-rossi-1126411 1920-768x1031 Marc Marquez is determined to assure his victory in Valencia. However, so will the other men who have already won in Spain previously. That is Jorge Lorenzo (Movistar Yamaha MotoGP), and Dani Pedrosa (Repsol Honda Team).
Lorenzo will definitely be out for glory this weekend.
Especially with it marking Lorenzo’s last time racing with the Movistar Yamaha squad. After winning three titles over nines year with them. Lorenzo clearly wants to go out with a bang. Before he moves to the Ducati Team and has already been dominating the opening day in Valencia. Valentino Rossi’s focus is solely forward after securing P2 in the Championship in Sepang. As well as finishing the hard race on the podium. Rossi is gearing up to welcome his new teammate Lorenzo in 2017. But for now, they are on opposite sides of the garage! valentino-rossi-959812 1920-768x509
The Silverstone winner Viñales (Team Suzuki Ecstar)
They will also be wanting to close his incredible run towards the front if possible. Viñales and teammate Espargaro will have their sights set fully on a podium space. As well as Lorenzo, Pedrosa has an incredible record on this track. He isn’t sure if he’ll be returning after his high side in Motegi. The Brit Crutchlow (LCR Honda) will have now have his final chance to secure Top Independent team rider in 2016! Espargaro is also set to move teams... this time to KTM. He’s set to stay alongside his current teammate Bradley Smith in 2017. Whatever happened in Valencia as the season finale, one thing is for sure... 2016 has been one for the records!
