Giro number 9, we decide who will not win the GP of the Americas: Marc Marquez, already on the run and with an advantage of over 4 "over Valentino Rossi, arrives too fast at turn 12 and slips off the tangent. restart the engine of his Honda, but it still falls and surrenders to the evidence: it will not be the dominator, for the seventh consecutive year, on the track of Austin.The unthinkable suddenly becomes reality: there is a goal at stake that he does not start from the second place down, and above all, Rossi found himself in the lead with serious ambitions to return to the success that he missed from Assen 2017, almost two years ago. ARRIVAL AND RANKING ORDER
Valentino started pushing his Yamaha, closely followed by the 'rookie' Alex Rins riding a very effective Suzuki. However, the dream of Pesaro ended in the 16th session, when Rins passed it taking advantage of his mistake in entering a curve. From there the 23-year-old from Barcelona took an advantage large enough to be defended to the finish, cut with 462 thousandths on the opponent. For him first success in the premier class.
"First of all I thank the fans, they are incredible – the words of Rins – And then my team, for having prepared me a splendid bike. Vale was my idol, closing in front of him is crazy". "I'm very sorry for the victory I missed, because I've been missing for a long time. When I saw the fall of Marquez I confess that I got excited, I thought 'maybe I'll make it' – commented Rossi – I pushed to the end but I'm not just managed to keep Rins behind, who was very fast in acceleration and strong in braking. Too bad, but this podium means we are strong. They are 20 important points ".
