Jorge Lorenzo has a simple game plan for this Sunday’s Japanese Grand Prix at Motegi: Win the race and take the MotoGP World Championship to a title decider at the final round in Valencia, Spain in two weeks.
In the final round of the triple-header at the AirAsia Grand Prix of Japan in Motegi, Repsol Honda Team’s Marc Marquez will get another shot at taking the title if he out-scores Yamaha Factory Racing’s Jorge Lorenzo by eight points or more while also seeing off the renewed challenge of his own teammate, Dani Pedrosa.
Marquez, who in the previous round was disqualified due to a team error regarding the then-compulsory mid-way bike swap, will be looking to make amends at Honda’s home track. With the stop-and-go nature of the Motegi circuit, both he and Pedrosa will be two of the favorites for victory.
Plenty of excitement was on hand Saturday night for the 2013 Monster Energy Cup in Las Vegas. The Ricky Carmichael-designed track and the potential of $1 million up for grabs made for an unforgettable evening of Supercross. By the end, James Stewart had won two of the three main events, earned his first Monster Energy Cup, and collected a $100,000 award prize.
However, we would be leaving out some of the best excitement around if we failed to mention the lovely Monster Energy Girls. Check out the full gallery here.
