Normal service resumed - after another Silverstone stunner

They say lightning never strikes twice in the same place, but try telling that to the 67,500 fans who watched history repeat itself with Silverstone’s second successive titanic struggle between Marc Marquez and Jorge Lorenzo. The difference from 2013 was that Marquez came out on top, but the Honda man had to catch and pass Lorenzo’s Yamaha not once but twice in the second half of the 20-lap race to earn his 11th win of the season. Marquez is the first rider to reach that number of wins in a season since Valentino Rossi in 2005.

Whose turn to upset the Marquez apple-cart this time?

Round 12 of 2014 takes the riders from the wooded hills of the Czech Republic to the flat, wide-open and windswept spaces of Silverstone in Northamptonshire.

Brno last time out finally ended Marc Marquez’s run of 10 wins with victory at Brno last time out: can the Spaniard – second at Silverstone last year – bounce back? One way or another, one or all of the three ‘veterans’ chasing him will make his own mark on the British race.
