Neil Hodgson's track guide

“When I think of Texas, I think of Marc Marquez.

“He’s undefeated round there, he’s taken every pole position and every win – including his first ever win on a MotoGP bike there in 2013.

“It’s a left-handed track, an anti-clockwise track, and it’s got a ridiculous number of corners.

“Nobody has even been able to put a glove, a mark even, on Marc Marquez because he’s been that good round there and I expect that to continue.

“I expect his domination on this track to continue because he’s a dirt tracker and they race anti-clockwise so he’s got a lot of feel and control of a bike sliding round left-hand corners."

Grand Prix of The Americas: Preview

As ever, Marc Marquez has dominated the headlines in the build-up to the Grand Prix of the Americas, but this year it has been for very different reasons.

The Honda Repsol man has led the way in qualifying and topped the podium on each race day since the Circuit of the Americas joined the calendar in 2013.

With that record, and the fact he is the reigning World Champion, the spotlight is always going to be on Marquez when coming to Texas – this year even more so.

His clash with Valentino Rossi at the Argentina Grand Prix has led to plenty of fallout, with shots being fired from both camps in the lead up to this weekend.

More fireworks in Austin cannot be ruled out either as Rossi has a good record at the COTA, finishing second here in 2017, and will be as fired up as ever to challenge Marquez.

With all the furore surrounding the Termas de Rio Hondo race, it’s almost gone under the radar that Cal Crutchlow leads the standings – the first a Brit has done so since 1979.

The now three-time GP winner will be hoping to continue flying the independent rider flag in Texas, with Jack Miller and Johann Zarco also impressing early in the season.

With Dani Pedrosa a doubt after undergoing surgery following a crash in Argentina, Marquez may be riding solo as he looks to make history with a sixth successive win in the Lone Star State.
