This weekend saw Marc Marquez extended his lead at the top of the MotoGP World Championship to 21 points as he rode to victory at the Indianapolis Grand Prix.
Marquez started on pole and throughout the race had to contend with fellow compatriot Jorge Lorenzo. However, the 20-year-old held strong and with 15 laps to go, coasted to victory with Dani Pedrosa coming second and Lorenzo coming third.
Britain’s Cal Crutchlow battled his way through the race and managed to finish fifth. Just at the finish line, Valentino Rossi squeezed passed Crutchlow after they both involved in a last minute tussle that also involved Alvaro Bautista.
Marquez has finished on the podium every race this year and also becomes the first man to win all three rounds in the United States. If the Repsol Honda rider can retain a third straight win, it will strengthen his grip in the standings with just eight races remaining.
Pedrosa overtook Lorenzo with just two laps remaining which inflicts damage on his hopes of grabbing the title again although both men have been gripped with injury.
