MotoGP 2017 season review

Wolverhampton, England, United Kingdom

We are lucky enough to be witnessing the golden era of MotoGP. The 2017 season was packed full of highs and lows, twists and turns and was incredibly unpredictable.

As we turned to the first round in Qatar, Maverick Vinales was highly tipped as a title favourite, and he started as he meant to go on with a race win. From then on, it was highs and lows for the Spaniard as he watched his title hopes slowly slip away as Marc Marquez shot into form, closely followed by Andrea Dovizioso who's form this season surprised many.

The title came well and truly down to the wire, and as we headed into the final round in Valencia, Spain it was between Marquez and Dovizioso. Although Dovizioso's chances of taking title honours were slim, it only took a race win and a Marquez DNF.

Dani Pedrosa won the final race, but Marquez won the war as he clinched his sixth world title at just twenty four years old. Dovizioso rounded out 2017 in second, with Vinales coming up in third.

We were treated to ups and downs and some brilliantly close racing throughout the thrilling season, which has set up 2018 to be something quite spectacular.
