Title Rivals Excited Ahead of Valencia Decider

Title Rivals Excited Ahead of Valencia Decider”

The Gran Premio de la Comunitat Valenciana will be the deciding round between Marc Marquez (282 points) and Andrea Dovizioso (261 points) for the 2017 MotoGP Riders World Championship.

Although he describes this weekend's finale as a "special occasion", the reigning champion admits he may need to take a cautious approach given that a victory isn't necessarily required.

The 2017 M1 struggled on slippery dry asphalt at Jerez and Catalunya, with the rear grip problems being exaggerated in wet races at Motegi and Sepang, despite the factory team trying at least five different chassis designs this season. But we'll try and enjoy the party at 2pm and it will be a special race in front of my fans at a circuit I like. To finish the race is the most important thing.

"It's very hard that I can do something, because the situation is much better for Marc and not so simple for Dovi, but if I am fighting for the top positions I will check the board and my dashboard as I understand the importance of the world title". I'll push like always throughout the weekend, then after Warm Up we will see.

Dovizioso sits a massive 21 points behind title rival Marc Marquez but as has been shown many times in MotoGP before, anything can happen.

The 31-year-old Dovizioso has been a sensation in a season in which his Ducati teammate and former world champion Jorge Lorenzo was expected to be the outfit's go-to rider. "Valencia is a track that I like a lot, I've been strong in the past and had good results so I hope to that the bike works well there and we can do a good race". We will see...21 points is a lot and very hard, but it's still open.

"We head to Valencia in a positive mood, looking to try and finish the season with a good result". Pedrosa has six career wins at Valencia - three in MotoGP, two in 250cc, and one in the 125cc class.

"Of course it will be natural to feel some pressure in Valencia with so much at stake, but honestly there has been pressure for the entire second part of the season".
