Sunshine expected at the 2014 Tissot Australian Motorcycle Grand Prix

The You Are My Sunshine Foundation (YAMS) has been announced as the Official Charity of the 2014 Tissot Australian Motorcycle Grand Prix.

The local Phillip Island charity was set up in 2009 to raise awareness and vital funds for research into neuroblastoma – the deadly children’s cancer.

Neuroblastoma is one of the three most common childhood cancers with survival rates in children aged 1-4 years and 5-14 years only 52% and 48% respectively.

Schwantz: Reborn Rossi still a MotoGP force

Keeping Track: Official Podcast of the Australian Grand Prix

American motorcycle great Kevin Schwantz has praised MotoGP™ veteran Valentino Rossi for reinventing himself, as the nine-time World Champion looks to combat runaway series leader Marc Márquez.

The 35-year-old Italian has enjoyed a career renaissance in 2014, finishing nine races on the podium and winning the San Marino Grand Prix earlier this month - Yamaha’s first victory in a season dominated by Márquez and Honda.

No white flag from Lorenzo as Marquez gets it wrong

The 800th race in World Championship history was one for the record-books in more ways than one as Jorge Lorenzo claimed his first victory of the season and Yamaha’s first success at MotorLand Aragon. In a 23-lap race white-flagged when rain began just past half-distance, Lorenzo refused to raise the metaphorical white flag of surrender and made his 32nd premier-class victory one of the most doggedly memorable of his outstanding career.

Tissot becomes title sponsor for 2014 Australian Motorcycle Grand Prix

Preview: 2014 Gran Premio Movistar de Aragon

The final five rounds of the 2014 World Championship see three fly-away races, including Phillip Island, book-ended by two in motorcycle racing’s current heartland of Spain. The first of those is this weekend’s race at MotorLand Aragon in the country’s north.

Championship leader Marc Marquez, needing to bounce back after an uncharacteristic slip-up in Italy, calls this “my favourite track of the year”, and with victories in both Moto2 (2011) and MotoGP (last year), it’s not hard to see why.

"I am the best Valentino I have ever been"

That’s the man himself speaking: Valentino Rossi, that is, straight after his latest victory at Misano in the GP di San Marino e della Riviera Rimini, the 81st of his premier-class career and the 107th when all classes are taken into account.

Triumph at the track so near his Tavullia home also made Rossi the rider with the longest winning career in two-wheeled Grand Prix history. It came more than 18 years after Rossi’s maiden success as a 125cc rider, in the Czech Republic on an Aprilia on August 18 1996.

Miller on the move - right to the top

Townsville to Tarragona: it’s a pretty long way to go, but it wasn’t kilometres Jack Miller was measuring when he set out on his remarkable journey as Australia’s next front-running two-wheeled racer a few years ago.

Miller, born in 1985, was thinking of the distance between 2003, when he became Australia’s national junior 65cc Dirt Bike champion, and 2014, when he finds himself within touching distance of the Moto3™ World Championship.

Jack Miller makes history - signs MotoGP deal for 2015

Australian motorcycle rising star Jack Miller will make history by becoming the first rider ever to move straight from Moto3™ to MotoGP™ in 2015, skipping the Moto2™ class completely.

The announcement that he has signed a deal to ride for LCR Honda on a Honda RC213V-RS Open Specification bike was made overnight.

The 19-year-old Townsville native, who currently rides for the Red Bull KTM Ajo team and leads the Moto3™ Championship after 13 rounds, will ride alongside more experienced Brit Cal Crutchlow at LCR next season.
