Rossi and Marquez play out a thriller

Valentino Rossi (Movistar Yamaha) and Marc Marquez (Repsol Honda) are MotoGP's master pyrotechnics practitioners, and yet another chapter was added in front of a packed crowd at Assen on June 27 as their battle for race honours came down to the final chicane.

Rossi was leading before Marquez made his move up the inside, with the pair then clipping before the Italian ran through a patch of gravel en route to his third win of the year, with Marquez forced to settle for second—but still a great result after his recent travails.

Yamaha battle hots up

Valentino Rossi says it will be intense, and he's not joking. Round eight of the 2015 MotoGP world title will be held at historic Assen on—as history dictates—Saturday, with the Italian leading the championship by just 1pt over Movistar Yamaha teammate and man of the moment, Jorge Lorenzo.

Rain hit Catalunya test for MotoGP™

MotoGP™ riders stayed after the Gran Premi Monster Energy de Catalunya to conduct an official post-race test, but were limited by rain.

Many riders and teams had their testing schedules dramatically altered as a heavy rain shower at midday forced riders into the pits. Those learning a new bike this season took the opportunity to test in the wet, while some of the more experienced riders ended the day early.

Lorenzo's Blazing Form

Jorge Lorenzo and his Movistar Yamaha are in perfect harmony at the moment—there's no other way to describe his utter domination of the MotoGP class, which continued at Catalunya as he took the chequered flag from teammate Valentino Rossi and Repsol Honda's Dani Pedrosa. Australia's Jack Miller (CWM LCR Honda) scored his best result for the season in 11th position.

Jorge Lorenzo makes it four in a row as Marquez crashes

Jorge Lorenzo leads home his teammate Valentino Rossi to claim his fourth consecutive victory as Marc Marquez crashes out in a dramatic seventh round in MotoGP.

Movistar Yamaha’s Lorenzo led from start to finish for the fourth race in succession to close the gap on his teammate Rossi in the standings to just one point.

The Spaniard controlled the race from the front to claim the second 1-2 of the season for his Factory Yamaha team.

Intrigue as MotoGP returns to Spain

Can anyone overpower Movistar Yamaha's ice man, Jorge Lorenzo? That's the million dollar question which will be answered at Catalunya this weekend as the MotoGP title returns to Spain for the second time this year.

Lorenzo has cantered to victory in the last three races, and the only consolation for his arch-rivals is that the Spaniard's ordinary start to the year means that he isn't leading the world championship by a big margin.

Lorenzo all class - yet again

The Jorge Lorenzo MotoGP road show continued at Mugello with the Spaniard's third victory in a row, using his no-fuss recipe of getting to the front from the start and then bolting. His Italian display was probably the most emphatic yet, and it didn't matter that reigning world champion Marc Marquez (Repsol Honda) was among the retirements, as no-one was going to stop Lorenzo from bringing up a hat-trick of wins and Yamaha's fifth in six races this year. It was also Lorenzo's 88th MotoGP podium, now equal fourth on the all-time list alongside Giacomo Agostini.

Brilliant Lorenzo doubles up

When Jorge Lorenzo gets into the 'zone', he's just about unbeatable. And so it was again at Le Mans when he moved into the lead on the second corner and was thereafter in total command, cruising to an effortless victory over his Movistar Yamaha teammate Valentino Rossi and Ducati's Andrea Dovizioso.

Lorenzo is now the first rider to win back-to-back races in 2015 — normally the domain of his countryman Marc Marquez — as he moved to second in the standings, 15pts behind Rossi and four ahead of Dovizioso.

The Monster Energy Grand Prix de France was host to another dominating Lorenzo victory while an intense battle for fourth burned.

Fortunately rain was nowhere to be seen in Le Mans, setting the stage for an exciting and eventful MotoGP™ race. The French GP comes after a post race test in Jerez and many riders arrived in France with new confidence, direction and parts. Bradley Smith was one such rider, running new front forks this weekend and leading FP2 on Friday.
