How will they line up in 2015

There are 25 riders slated to take part in the FIM Road Racing World Championship this season, beginning as usual in Qatar after February testing in Spain.

Those 25 riders are spread among 14 teams, with three of them – Marc VDS Honda, Cardion AB Motoracing and Iodaracing – entering just one bike in the series.

Just five of the 14 teams boast unchanged line-ups for the new season, so there has been plenty of movement at the station. Let’s start with the unchanged pairings.

High noon for Jack the lad

It’s a classic Western: one man against superior forces, brave enough to back himself when all around are backing away – and eventually triumphing against all odds.

Is Australia’s Jack Miller on his way to acting out the role played by Gary Cooper in the movie ‘High Noon’ all those years ago?

The day after his race-winning but title-losing finish to the Moto3 season in Valencia, Miller – who, like the sheriff in the movie, hadn’t slept the night before – waited impatiently for his High Noon to come.

Remy Gardner signs with CIP Mahindra Team

They say the ‘apple doesn’t fall far from the tree’. The never give up fighting spirit underdog attitude that took Wayne Gardner from the steelworks of Wollongong, NSW, to international stardom as a 500cc Grand Prix World Champion has been inherited by 16-year-old Remy Gardner, who’s racing determination and drive took a major step forward on Saturday when he signed a contract to compete in the World Grand Prix Championship riding for CIP Mahindra in the Moto3 class.

Dominant champion Marquez ends Valencia test ahead of MotoGP™ rivals

Marquez was 0.146s ahead of his teammate Dani Pedrosa, who was second quickest on Wednesday with a time of 1’31.119 and fourth best over the three days of the test. The Honda pair undertook back-to-back comparisons with their 2014 and 2015 RC213V machines, Marquez’s best time registered on a 2015 prototype.

Australia's Remy Gardner scores first World Championship point in only his third Moto3 Grand Prix

Remy Gardner proved he belongs in World Championship Grand Prix racing on the weekend with a stunning 15th place in his third Moto3 race – and his first ever visit to the challenging Sepang Circuit.

Remy, who was picked up by Team Calvo to replace injured rider Eric Granado, had impressed team boss Pablo Nieto with his wildcard ride at the previous weekends Tissot Australian Grand Prix, securing a one-off ride on a factory KTM.

Remy Gardner to replace injured Calvo team rider Eric Granado at Sepand this weekend

Just what 'The Doctor' ordered

Seven-time MotoGP™ World Champion, Valentino Rossi won today’s 2014 Tissot Australian Motorcycle Grand Prix in his 250th premier class start.

Current MotoGP™ title holder, Marc Marquez exited the race in dramatic style, crashing unexpectedly while in control of the race.

Rossi’s 82nd premier class victory equalled Australian Casey Stoner’s record of six Australian Motorcycle Grand Prix wins and moved him clear of both Jorge Lorenzo and Dani Pedrosa in the battle for second in the World Championship.
