The sun has set on another MotoGP season. It was a crazy season that saw Marc Marquez seal his second championship victory while setting the record for most wins in a season, Jorge Lorenzo start off with a horrid season, only to come back at the end and Valentino Rossi defy all of his critics during the dark years to take second in the championship.

The off-season starts tomorrow with a test a Valencia. We are seeing a game of musical bikes with riders shifting all across the grid. Suzuki will be back in the game, Aprilia will be partnering with Gresini, Cal is bailing on factory Ducati for a satellite Honda, Jack Miller is making the jump up two classes and Honda will present their new open customer bike to Hayden and Abraham.

What does the future hold for us? After several dismal years of parade-like races, MotoGP is back with full excitement for the fans.

They have the one they raced today. It retired early with an unknown technical issue.

Will be interesting to see what Espargaro can do on it.

Curious what Ducati has to show us this winter...
I'm a little curious myself. Dovi was doing well the last half of the season on the soft compound tires. If they can make adjustments then he might be competitive for a whole race next year.

But it is Ducati, so I'm not holding my breath.

Aaaaaaaaand Crutchlow is off to an entertaining start :lol

It'll be interesting to hear if his injuries are more severe than is being reported. 'Cuz knee caps and wrists don't like it when you fall out of the sky onto them.
